A cake that washed up in Brooklyn. From the New York Daily News, photo by Julia Xanthos. If you know New York, if you want to know what has happened to the neighborhoods you know or love, the photos and real-time streaming updates are here, you probably won't find them anywhere else. (It has already been noted in other press and blog reports that some of the major television channels have reported some majorly erroneous stories).
Also, WNYC radio is providing excellent updates, citizen and journalist reporting and discussion here. Including damage to nuclear plants along the coast (latest update on them via the Leonard Lopate show).
