Torrential Rains In NYC’s East Village

Subways Down in the East Village

Local EV residents were forced out of the subways and into the streets today as a freak, end-of-the-world, rainstorm not only stopped the transit system but turned my roof into a freshwater lake.

In spite of the dead pigeon, I was able to unclog the roof drain, shower and then begin the hike to work.

For MTA riders trying to get to New York City, they were not so lucky. As it stands, the office has about 10% of the usual employee population in the office.

In spite of no F Train, N Train or 6 Train, door-to-door.. I made it in 40 sweaty minutes.
