"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

Gowanus Flooding And Park Slope Tree Damage

photo-3
Third Street at the bridge over the Gowanus this morning was flooded. Incidentally, that is Carroll Gardens' Hurricane evacuation route. Good thing Irene was 'just' a tropical storm.

A bit further afield, a giant tree fell over at Montgomery Place in Park Slope

Feel sorry for the car owner

More photos, these from Reader Rick who took them this morning. Thanks for allowing me to post them here on PMFA, Rick.
