We just posted several photos showing the cleanup underway at the East River Co-op, where several trees were destroyed by Hurricane Irene. Right around the corner, in Corlears Hook Park, there was even more damage. A number of beautiful old trees at the end of the foot bridge leading to the East River Park Amphitheater were devastated. This afternoon, the splintered, tangled limbs became something of a spectacle, as residents descended on the park to survey the damage.
