    It certainly looks apocalyptic. Sooner or later some a-hole filmmaker will want to use it for a movie. The response should be "Sure, just give us what each of our homes were worth before the storm, and you can film all you want."

    "New York City's rats have arrived. In the wake of superstorm Sandy, residents of the city are soon likely to see them by the thousands, since the rodents have been driven from flooded subway tunnels"

    Unbelievable pictures. Merry posted some also in the Photos Videos of NY thread too.

    Bellevue Hospital now being evacuated. 500 patients.

    When you look at the human side of this whole thing, its effects will reverberate years or even decades after all property has been rebuilt. This will be a major turning point in many people's lives. Even for those who haven't lost loved ones, it is like a death, and rebirth but not as the way they were.

    The Lady Liberty pics with the Marilyn amalgam & the one where she's hiding behind her pedestal are priceless.

    Some limited subway service restored above 42nd St, free buses running, NJ Path still out, but it looks like they're adding more every day.

    The Statue of Liberty cowering behind her base is a good one .

    The "I Storm NY" one could also be seen as something else...

    Edit:

    To volunteer.
    As of this morning, Staten Island borough president Jim Molinaro said the Red Cross hadn't been there yet, and people were walking into shelters without socks and shoes.
