Prospect Park After Hurricane Sandy (PHOTOS)

I visited Prospect Park in Brooklyn Wednesday. Hurricane Sandy tore through the park a few days ago, and you can tell.

I wasn't able to stay as long as I would have liked: The police appeared around noon with a large force and firmly but nicely herded everyone out.

Added is a shot of lower Manhattan, from Brooklyn, also taken October 31.
