When Avenue C became part of the East River

On Monday, I posted a photo of the floodwaters on East 14th Street and Avenue C. In subsequent emails, several readers-residents said that they didn't realize the extent of the flooding...

Several Avenue C residents shared photos from the storm surge on Oct. 29. However, nothing probably quite captures the scene as this video does, shot around 8:15 p.m. on East 11th Street looking toward Avenue C.



Here's another video via YouTube that Daniel Scott uploaded ... showing the scene at East Eighth Street...

I'm still amazed by this.

My God. I feel for all the garden apartment owners.

Here's another one. Please offer theories on why those gentlemen are posing for photos in the freezing and undoubtedly sewer-contaminated water...?

@eastvillager because they are foolish and they are trying to do something about their lack of significance. They want to be a part of something big. But lots of ppl died horrible deaths from storm surges. I might have been curious to see what was happening but challenging flood waters is an awful idea. Not to mention the risk of a branch falling on your fucking head.
