Post Hurricane Sandy: And There Was (Blessed) Light

The price tag from Hurricane Sandy’s damages in NY totals $42+ billion, according to the latest tally from Gov. Andrew Cuomo, including $33 billion to repair housing & infrastructure and $9 billion to protect transit systems, the power network and sewage treatment facilities from future storms.

While many neighborhoods continue to suffer, there’s solace in again seeing the bright lights of the Manhattan skyline from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, with this pic taken Friday just after dusk… quite a difference from the view just after the storm. *
