This Amazing Time Lapse Video Shows Sandy’s Assault On New York And The Moment The Lights Went Out
A camera on top of 2 Northside Piers shows New York before Sandy rolled in, its destructive approach, and the sudden loss of power as the storm surge flooded lower Manhattan.
This is the best angle and the longest exposure we’ve yet seen of Sandy’s full impact. The video was created by Silas Maniatis.
New York City under siege at 30 seconds per frame. This video begins at 1 PM on Sunday, October 28th and concludes approximately around 2:30 PM on Tuesday, October 30th.
