Hurricane Sandy: from Coney Island to Belle Harbor

To travel from the projects of Coney Island to the smashed estates of Belle Harbor, is a surreal journey, revealing not just the vulnerability of the city’s coastal zones, but the enormous class differences that dictate New York’s neighborhoods. To view more please visit: NOOR images

Sandy at night

Without power, lower Manhattan is dark except for police and ambulance lights, strobing red, orange, deep blue, and spots from little flashlights that people carry to see their way. The point of reference, like the North Star, is the Empire State Building, the line of demarcation. Everything north of the Building is normal, as though little happened. South of it is another world, quiet, strange, like a movie set.
