It’s hard to believe that two weeks after superstorm Sandy hit the shores of Manhattan that their is still 1/3 of the Financial District that is still without power and fixes are not in the near future. It’s estimated that some buildings will be without power for another month to two months. The 14-foot storm surges flooded the streets and basements of the heart of the finance district and leaves its occupants looking for other places to live and work. It really makes you questions whether this area is the right place for these companies. But knowing New York, it is a resilient city and I’m sure it will bounce back soon.
I thought I would share with you the Financial District as I know it. Full of lights and life! Here’s the Financial District as viewed from Brooklyn across the East River.
