Water surged through Inwood Hill Park.
It was one of the largest storms recorded in New York State history, a devastating mass of wind and water this past Mon., Oct. 29th that wrought extensive flooding and massive power outages that brought the city to a halt.
The 207th Street Bridge was closed.
More than eight million people remained without power late into Tuesday evening; schools remain closed and mass transit services were suspended and only slowly returning to a semblance of normalcy.
Domino’s Pizza remained open.
Throughout northern Manhattan, as was the case throughout the city, Hurricane Sandy, dubbed “Frankenstorm” brought down trees directly onto homes and cars, disrupted power and flooded homes.
Many street signs and awnings came down.

A small bright spot came in the form of flashes of red and blue, as deliveries flew fast and furious from Domino’s Pizza on Broadway, one of the few restaurants that had been able to remain open late through Monday night.
All New York City parks remained closed.
These are some of the images from throughout “El Alto,” just a handful of the more that can be found on www.manhattantimesnews.com.
For those who wish to lend a hand in the volunteer efforts, the Mayor’s Office asks that an email be sent to
