Photo fo the day: EXPERIENCING THE ONSET OF THE HURRICANE IN NEW YORK CITY –  1 year ago today, I wanted to document the experience of a hurricane. I was blown down the street for two blocks several times, not having a thing to grab onto. But I made it to the water’s edge  of the East River.
The statistics are: 820 mile wide storm, 13.88 feet high water, 44 deaths and then twice as many more afterwards, 2 million people without power, many neighborhoods today remain wiped off the map and over 500  people still don’t have any place to go. It has changed the city and people’s lives forever. Here is the storm in photos.  (I don’t have the time or understanding how to post a whole albums of photos, so here is my link of the complete photo album on myFacebook page.)              https://www.facebook.com/hans.vonrittern/media_set?set=a.437954789596068.95638.100001446524326&type=1
