Hurricane Sandy, Hell's Kitchen, Monday night, assorted pics and vids

It looks like the worst of the flooding is over in Manhattan. The water went up to over 13 feet throughout lower Manhattan.

There's a post-Sandy Part 1 party going on in the alley in back of my building. They're happy their apartment didn't flood and Hell's Kitchen still has electricity.

Whoa, the flooding came close to Hell's Kitchen. From Minervous' Flickr photostream, just down the street at the Intrepid on the Hudson River.

Tomorrow is Sandy Part Deux.

Some of the unusual pics/tweets/videos of today.
