The Storm of ’07 and the Commute of 8/8

Over on Flickr, Gothamist is gathering some incredible shots of the aftermath of last night's storm and the chaos of this morning's commute. We'd love it if you would share your morning commute story here on Streetsblog. And check out these photos, thanks to Gothamist's remarkable network of contributors...


Prospect Park South, Brooklyn. Flickr photographer tmbg37 has lots more of these.

Park Row, City Hall— angry commuters wait for buses to go uptown. Dietrich's photos are outstanding.

Car commuters found that the Grand Central Parkway was closed too. By Dan Dickinson.

Kidsturk captures this shot at Broadway and Canal and writes, "To get to Wall Street today, I took the Q from the 9th Avenue D-M stop
in Brooklyn to Canal Street with the plan of taking the downtown M1
bus. In the end, I overtook about eight M1s walking from Canal to Wall
Street, to the constant sound of car horns and yelling drivers. Mmm, dulcet."

Special thanks to Gothamist New York.
