All the images are made between 4:30 and 7 pm on Saturday 08/27. pm. Although, the shore area around Coney Island and Brighton Beach looked like ghost town , there were still some residents refusing to evacuate and preferred to stay home. On the streets you would see mostly NYPD and NYFD cars. Scared birds were flying above the beach, ships were leaving NY, parents with kids came for sightseeing of the dark ocean, the kids were laughing, running and playing under the rain. Everyone was waiting and preparing for Irene.
Even the most famous hot dog place got scared from Irene.
Not everyone is leaving Brighton Beach Area. He says and asserts: 'I am a supervisor of the building right there, I am not going anywhere.'
The Ghosts live here.
Attention please: to all the residents of the building who belong to Zone A an evacuation is mandatory.
Crossing the red flags is prohibited by NYC law!
Happy Brighton Beach resident is walking on the sidewalk before it's all covered by the water later.
Who said that was crazy crowded in the supermarkets? Not at 7 pm on Saturday. Only few people were shopping and few employees were organizing the shelves in the entire Western Beef supermarket on Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn, NY.
Apparently, New Yorkers love sugar.
Yes, water is on first place in the shopping list.
Number 2 is bread on the grocery list.
Western Beef employee is still working hard after the hurricane entered in the store the day before. He doesn't know if the store will be open on Sunday.
