^^Absolutely Roman bhai.

Life just won't be same here where I live (Staten Island) and have both college and work (Lower Manhattan). These areas were hit the hardest in NYC. I got power after 3 days and only then realized the magnitude of this storm.

In Staten Island alone, 19 people died. 2 dead bodies washed up yards away from my high school practice ground. Other people died in blocks very close to us. Cargo ships washed shore. No gasoline in the pumps. 50k+ still without power. Have to pass through 2-3 checkpoints to get to the bridge.

In Lower Manhattan, still no power. Traffic lights not working and that means total gridlock. After night, people don't go out in the streets. Few subway stations will take months before they start service again.
