The Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy
Now that heat, electricity and an internet connection have returned to my life I can upload a very small sample of the destruction that Old Westbury suffered at the hands of the vicious winds of Hurricane Sandy earlier this week. Above, the entrance to 'Erchless', which took an absolute beating along the perimeter of the estate.
The next four are from Wheatley Road between the Service Road and Post. With no working traffic lights I did not venture terribly far for photographs on Tuesday and Wednesday but I imagine much of the north shore (and the rest of Long Island) looks like this.
Post Road off the westbound Service Road. This tree was still laying across the road entangled in power lines as of Thursday morning. Photos of the damage at 'Spring Hill' on Monday.
