Even one full year later, repair work on the Superstorm Sandy damaged R train line in NYC continues. In fact, as the sign posted a couple of months ago (see below) at the 34th Street/ Herald Square stop indicates, the work will continue for another full year through October 2014 - another reminder of the intensity of that storm that walloped New York City this time last year and, consequently will be on peoples' minds a lot in the coming week - especially on October 29th when the brunt of Sandy hit the East Coast.
For this installment in the weekly New York State of Mind Amoeblog, along with news on the upcoming anticipated Ennio Morricone concert, as well as the photo left I present a series of photos taken over the past several weeks around New York City - mostly Manhattan. These include the above photo of the fountain at Park Plaza at top of Fifth Ave. at Central Park South, and the ones below (scroll down) that include some street art, NYPD on horses, some parks and sights including the StoryCorps building - all the way downtown - where for a decade of collaborating with hundreds of organizations throughout NYC they've been collecting the stories of thousands of voices in NYC in an attempt to record and preserve the "diverse and extraordinary stories" of New Yorkers' lives. To see location of individual photos simply drag cursor over each photo below.
