The 8 Most Amazing Photos of Hurricane Sandy on Twitter

Lady Liberty braces herself for Hurricane Sandy.

While Hurricane Sandy whips through the Northeast, the residents of Brooklyn got the worst of the flooding, at least according to the Brooklynites who are working from home today.

This SocialTimes editor lives in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook: home to Ikea, the Fairway market, a full-frontal view of the Statue of Liberty and, as of last night, Venitian canals along the waterfront. City officials didn’t put Red Hook in Zone A of New York’s disaster map for nothing.

This morning’s collection of photos on Twitter show the damage to Red Hook and Brooklyn Bridge Park, as well as the North Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint. Check out that line at Trader Joe’s in nearby downtown Brooklyn.

 

Of course, it’s not that bad everywhere. Farther inland from Red Hook’s waterfront, pedestrians are still walking along Van Brunt street, hoping to grab a drink at the Ice House.
