After seeing images of massive floods in New York City go around on the web, especially the one with Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park completely surrounded by water, I woke up this morning to snap some photos around the Zone A area in Dumbo, Brooklyn. I hope everyone is safe and for the rapid recovery of the MTA and power.
As of this morning, the Manhattan Bridge was closed off (now it’s open and back and running, yet not many cars can be seen).
Plymouth Street and Main Street intersection.
Remaining floods from the night before.
Park Closed No Entry – Relieved to see the Carousel still there this morning.
Minor floods in Dumbo, Brooklyn
You can see how high the water was at its highest from the night before.
At the East River Ferry dock. Quiet morning, mostly spectators walking around with cameras like me and dog owners talking their dogs for a walk.
Here’s a view from Dumbo, Brooklyn. You can clearly tell that the buildings in the foreground of the photo are all dark.
Taken at 11:00pm Eastern Time.
It’s rare to see absolutely no traffic on the Manhattan Bridge.
