Sandy's First High Tide at the Gowanus

I won't go out for the second high tide, but at 9 am this was a fun bike ride. Blustery winds, probably gusting to 30 mph.  On and off rain.

The approach to the 9th St Bridge will be a big problem later.

This guy got out ok, the rest better move soon

Nobody is taking a tour today, so the buses were moved to higher ground.

In 6 days Ryan Hall and  I will be running the NYC Marathon.  I hope everything is fine by then


  1. That's one heck of a high tide CU, thanks for braving the elements and bringing us this up to the minute on the spot report!
    It's late afternoon your way now and I'm guessing the winds and rain have pick up.
    Stay safe, hope you don't lose power for too long, (not at all would be preferable.)

  2. yea, it is 5pm now and it is getting pretty noisy outside.

    I live on the 4th floor of a 6 story building and all my windows are about 20 feet to other buildings. I am not so worried.

    It is the people in the skyscrapers that I am worried about.

  3. I sure hope you and the family are safe and well.


You do not have to be nice!
