Photo of the day: “HURRICANE” GRACE HITS NEW YORK !

“HURRICANE” GRACE HITS NEW YORK: Two days prior to mega storm Sandy hitting New York, the eye of hurricane Grace made a direct hit in Manhattan making landfall with her ironically called “Hurricane Tour”.  Fans surged to the legendary Roseland Ballroom to witness the tropical disturbance that is hurricane Grace Jones,  an energetic, tireless force to be reckoned with. Wave and after song wave flooded towards us as the pressure was rising in the vortex of the ballroom to shear squall levels. The tide of enthusiasm swelled to maximum strength leaving a path of fierce hits in Grace’s wake and ending with her song hit “Hurricane”. Forget Sandy – we’ve been hit by Grace !
