I live in the city and if I hadn't been here this weekend, I probably wouldn't even know there was a storm. Everything has been back to normal since Monday morning - you won't even be able to tell anything happened. Enjoy your trip!

At this hour, while much of NYC’s services are working well there are still some delays and suspensions. Further, ConEd (our utility company) is currently reporting >10,000 customers in the 5 NYC Burroughs without electrical power. For further information see:

MTA (tra685sportation): http://www.mta.info/

Con Ed (electrical):


That said, we are hoping that most of these difficulties will be resolved in the next few days.

Hope this helps. Your questions are always welcome.

The biggest impacts are the piles of extra rain-soaked plywood in the trash, and the popularity of The Hurricane cocktail!


12 ounces light rum

12 ounces dark rum

10 ounces grenadine, or passion fruit syrup

10 ounces fresh orange juice

10 ounces sour mix, or fresh lime juice

3 tablespoons superfine sugar, or more to taste

1 large orange, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices

Directions:Mix all the ingredients in a tall pitcher or large pot and stir to dissolve the sugar. Pour into a punch bowl and add the ice cubes and orange segments. Serve in tall glasses over ice with straws.
