photo by the national guard

I know there are a lot of horrible stories, most of them with a human face attached. But for some reason this photo of Coney Island vanishing is one of the most stark, maybe because you can see the scale.
I used to have a recurring nightmare about NYC flooding like this. Sharks in the streets, and water everywhere. Seeing it is worse.
