Monday Street Scenes: LES Before the Deluge

Seward Park is locked up tight.

The windy, wet streets of the Lower East Side were not as busy as usual this morning, but not deserted, either. People sought coffee, walked dogs, unloaded produce trucks, delivered packages and scurried to work. Click through for a few more street scenes of Hurricane Sandy, Day 1.

The cranes atop 1 World Trade Center, seen from East Broadway, are holding steady in the storm clouds, so far.

The wind’s first victims: newspaper boxes are down all along Delancey Street.

On Orchard Street, a motorcycle is sheltered from the wind.
