Lower Manhattan loses power.
Without question, this has been a trying week for lots of New Yorkers and anyone who was in Hurricane Sandy's path. She came and went, and left behind a disastrous trail that has left many without homes, food, and power (not to mention, the loss of loved ones.) I've been watching the news pretty much nonstop, and it's shocking to hear the experiences of so many, especially since we barely felt any of the effects of it living in East Williamsburg, which is a relief but has also made me feel a little guilty.
Tons of friends have been posting their photos on Facebook or found ones that are so gripping and emotional. Here are a few I came across that I feel speak louder than words.
