The Calm After the Storm

When I got back into the city yesterday, I went for a walk around Tribeca—and I as amazed how normal it all looked. (The damage at this point being inside and below ground.) If you didn’t see a discreet leftover waterline, a dripping car being towed up from a parking garage, or the “restricted use” stickers on riverside buildings, you might not know anything significant had happened. So Marisa McGrody’s photos arrived as a shock: Taken the day after Sandy hit, they have an air of fresh violence about them.

P.S. The chair in the second photo below was sitting in the West Street median.
