Calm After the Storm

Written by admin on . Posted in News Our Town Downtown.

Like many businesses in Soho and environs, Balthazar Restaurant on Spring Street (bottom left) boarded up its windows on Saturday, Aug. 28 in preparation for Hurricane Irene.

With most MTA service up and running by the morning of Monday, Aug. 29, Downtown Manhattan was more or less back to normal—with a few exceptions. Leaf debris (right) could still be found on the steps of the Vietnam Veterans Plaza on Water Street and a young lady hailing a cab on Hanover Square had to sidestep more than a few puddles left over from the storm.
