Scenes from Superstorm Sandy

All is well here in my Williamsburg, Brooklyn abode. The building swayed during the bigger gusts enough to make us worry a little, but my neighbors and I didn’t lose power. I’m feeling grateful.

We have trees in Williamsburg, but not like in Brownstone Brooklyn.

My friend Melissa Hope Chusid created this great collage about life returning to normal on the Upper East Side.

When I walked through my own neighborhood this afternoon, Mast Brothers had reopened.┬áMomofuku Milkbar had not.┬áNor had Modca. Oslo was open – thank goodness – but didn’t have any pastries understandably. Pies n Thighs was not only open, but delivering.

The subway still isn’t working so I’m Brooklyn-bound for a few days.

Good riddance, Sandy.
