A storm two weeks ago took down this tree up the street from me, along with over 1000 others in NYC. During the storm I was almost struck by lightning on my roof-- but I wasn't-- so I was able to photograph this scene the next day. (As usual, the photo's better bigger, so click on it.)

This particular stretch of Henry Street gets referred to as "Puerto Rico Block", but a young woman I know who lives there finds the name somewhat offensive, so we won't call it that.


  1. photo is so good it looks like a staged miniature. only you.

  2. That's a lot of expression in a fallen tree. Nice seeing.
