The Jehovah’s Witnesses are moving out of DUMBO to north of New York City. They recently sold some major properties. Since we’ve lived just up the street from them, I’ve been able to look out the window at the slogans on the side of their building: “READ GOD’S WORD THE HOLY BIBLE DAILY.” It looks like they’ve decided to paint over one of their slogans.

I walked down to DUMBO this morning. It looks like the East River came up into the park, but by the time I got there the river had settled a bit. The current was very strong; it looked like it was almost boiling with whitecaps on the top. I stitched together a bunch of photos; click through the image to see it at Gigapan.

The Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges cross the East Riven in this photo taken from DUMBO in Brooklyn, New York City after Hurricane Irene. In the background are the buildings One World Trade Center and New York By Gehry. The river was running strong with white caps due to the extra water from the storm.
