fdr drive was closed. police were occasionally discouraging pedestrians but more often ignoring them. eerie... post apocalyptic.
this car was half on the sidewalk, where it appeared to have floated, with widows open. there was a baby seat in the back. it was full of storm debris and water.
the open widows made me feel like it'd been left in a hurry.
i was trying to imagine what happened, when three nurses came out of the hospital on the same block.
"oh... that's the car...!" one of them said to the others.
i asked. they said they'd watched from the windows as people in the car tried to drive it out as the water level climbed. it was too late. they were overwhelmed and stranded, but an ambulance crew, presumably aware because of other people watching in the building, made it through the rising waters and rescued them.
