More Photos and Video: East Village During Sandy

Now that power is mostly back, we’ve been receiving more of your photos and videos from the storm, starting with the above. Brian Spitzer submitted this incredible footage of Avenue C and Eighth Street, adjacent the Police Service Area 4 station house, through our Virtual Assignment Desk.

Photos have also been coming into our Flickr Group: Matthew Kraus posted equally stunning shots of flooding on Avenue C and East 15th Street, where one motorist told The Local he escaped waters that were chest-high. Steven Matthews also documented the storm’s arrival and subsequent flooding. Michael Natale posted shots of the wreckage in East River Park, while Bahram Foroughi photographed fallen trees in the Lower East Side and off the East River. Timothy Krause drew our attention to the river’s oily sheen. Philip Kalantzis-Cope witnessed some of the food giveaways we mentioned. Vivienne Gucwa added shots of the recovering neighborhood in darkness and daylight. Meagan Kirkpatrick took some black-and-white stunners of the blackout. Coti Villanueva showed us the rain-slicked streets, as did Roey Ahram. Scott Lynch posted a photo of closures at the Union Square station yesterday, and Ria Chung has images of the neighborhood getting back to normal.

There are plenty more where those came from, so browse The Local’s Flickr pool and add material of your own.

And a big thanks to everyone who contributed coverage.
