This exhibit features photographs I took around my home during the height of the storm on October 29, 2012 in New York City. Much has been said about the storm's damage in lower Manhattan, but relatively little was published about what occurred North of 42nd Street in Manhattan. These photographs show yet another side of New Yorkers coping with hurricane Sandy in an area that was believed to be unaffected.
Approximately 11pm on October 29, 2012, I stepped outside of my apartment on West 44th Street by 10th Avenue and walked down West 44th street towards the West Side Highway area. Just a block and a half away, I was startled to discover the sea had risen over 12th Avenue and was making its way up towards 11th Avenue. These photographs were taken that night on West 43rd and West 44th Street by 12th Avenue. Much is assumed that everyone above 42nd Street was unaffected by the storm. While we did not lose power, these images show an example of what occurred North of 42nd Street that night. On January 4th, 2013, the US Congress finally passed its first aid bill for $9.7 billion to aid victims of this storm (67 days after the storm), which is about 15% of the aid being requested by the state authorities.
