Some hastily posted snapshots after the storm.

East Broadway and Catherine Street.

Picking up the residue, mostly disintegrating cardboard boxes.  Love the umbrella.

When I waded in I made it up to above my knee, the water a cool mix of fresh and salt.

He’s probably at its deepest.

An atmosphere of hushed play.

Nice to see the world change, as long as it’s not too much.
