My office is in the Flat Iron District which was one of the affected Manhattan areas.

I went to the office today and was pleased to see that just about all of the shops, restaurants, etc. in the area that I passed were open for business. I'm certain that many of them will suffer substantial losses but most of them did not suffer water damage and therefore hopefully will be able to sustain such losses and stay open.

I love that Flat Iron District area, it has changed so much in the last 30 years.

I haven't been to Manhattan (I'm usually in Queens and Brooklyn mostly) in two weeks. There has been a few occasions in which I ordinarily would have gone there, but I'm holding off for probably at least a week because of the limited subway options and resulting congested trains that do go there.
