After a tense Saturday night, New York City dodged a bullet with Hurricane Irene, and we in Harlem thankfully sustained little permanent damage.

Today, the backside of the Hurricane brought quite strong winds sweeping through the streets. A walk through the neighborhood turned up a few downed trees and displaced signs, but also the sight of tenacious Harlemites getting back to business and making the best of existing circumstances.
