We did indeed have ourselves a right little tornado this morning in the Prospect Park South historic district. The photos I snapped right after I staggered out of bed show only the mildest damage in my neighborhood. Since all trains into Manhattan are currently disabled, I decided to stroll the neighborhood to document the aftermath. Click the small photo below to check out the Flickr photoset. All pictures were taken within two blocks of my house. Yet one block south, there’s not so much as a branch down.


I’m happy to say that I don’t think anyone was hurt, and there was only minor damage to the beautiful old homes here. I’m also happy to say that several SUVs were totaled by falling trees.
