HURRICANE SANDY PHOTO GALLERY: WE’RE NOT FLOODED, BUT WE DID GET SMASHED

The Upper West Side didn’t experience the mass flooding that occurred in other parts of the city, but the wind definitely did some major damage up here. Check out some of the photos below from your neighbors. We’ll keep updating the gallery. If you take photos send them to us at info@westsiderag.com. (As of this morning, the city was still telling people to stay inside as winds remain strong. Parks are still closed).

      Who needs wind when you have union labor? Five days ago on 110th between Broadway/Riverside the huge tree I’ve walked under for fourteen years was suddenly turned to mulch.

      Romney would privatize FEMA that would really be a money saver…huh. Hope if you have not voted yet you can bring Obama back to the White House.
      Hope the storm spared you

      SCUSA, BUT WHAT THE HECK DOES CUTTING DOWN A TREE HAVE TO DO WITH UNIONS????????????
      The decision was probably made by some “middle-management faceless NON-UNIONIZED bureaucrat” and was probably carried out by workers who, if their company contracts with the city, usually have to be unionized.
      READ YOUR HISTORY BOOKS! UNIONS CREATED THE MIDDLE-CLASS IN THIS COUNTRY! WITHOUT UNIONS WE WOULD HAVE WORKERS EARNING PAUPER WAGES AND FURTHER UNDERCUTTING EACH OTHER TO SETTLE FOR LOWER AND LOWER PAY.
      OH, I’M SORRY! THAT’S WHAT YOU ROMNEY/RYAN SUPPORTERS REALLY WANT, WHILE THE TOP 5% GET EVER RICHER ISN’T IT???
      FOR SHAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
