Rockaway Beach post-Hurricane Irene

Manhattan off in the distance
the bike path - covered
you can see that trucks have started to clean up
Rode down to the Rockaways, Queens (which had been partially evacuated) on Monday and took these pics. The beach itself appears to have lost an incredible about of sand and the bike path/boardwalk areas were covered making portions of it impossible to bike through. Even though the Rockaways is one of the most vulnerable areas in the city they weren't hit as hard from the Hurricane as predicted yet have a lot of clean up work and flooding to deal with.  If you head down, your will likely come across some downed trees in the path...

on the way down - along side the Belt Parkway
