The subway system may have saved a lot of lives. Nice drains.


What a great comment.

So who was down there waiting for the money shot?
Since the subway was shut down, how you reckon that camera man
got out?
He climbed up against the flooding to upper roadway which was also flooded.

Fotoforensics says: Photoshop.

Not to say there is no flooding, just this made for media pic is bogus.


Looks like a still shot from a cctv.

Oh how sad.

I bet the families who've lost loved ones to this storm are laying flowers for the subways as we speak.

That's awful.

I haven't caught any MSM reports yet. (Just woke up.)

Have estimates been made yet how long they will be out of service?

Sorry, not Photoshop. I am a flow dynamics specialist and looking at the pattern of water moving around objects is spot on. It has small details of flow that no one that is not incredibly familiar with flow dynamics could duplicate.

Man this site has some serious deniers.

They are unwilling to give a time table at this point.

At dawn on Tuesday, emergency crews were assessing the damage to tunnels and elevated tracks. Restoring the system is likely to be a gradual process, she said.

"It's really hard to say which areas will come back first," Parker said, adding it will likely be a combination of limited subway and bus service. "It will come back gradually."

The MTA said there was no timetable for getting subways, trains and buses back in operation. The agency dismissed reports on Twitter and other social media sites that subway service would be out for the rest of the week.

Another flooded subway pic I saw this morning.

So... The NYC subways might need a little time to get back up and running...

It could have been a security camera, and someone used photoshop to crop, scale, adjust contrast...who knows.

The placement and angle of the camera lends me to think it was a security camera. Not everything is a media propagated conspiracy!

I watched a film about the homeless who live under the streets of NY,and there are a lot of them down there.
I hope they were warned,and got out safe in time.


NYC [manhattan] actually has 200+ subterranean levels
that are publicly admitted, and only if you look into the subject

i have a horrible feeling that they weren't warned as giuliani [and his predecessor] have a war against the poor going for some years now, and are attempting to gentrify the city.

when the bodies start showing up he'll no doubt feign ignorance.

in addition some of the deeper levels are used for storing toxic, including nuclear waste.

not looking good for my hometown at the mo'

Hopefully the homeless was aware of the storm. When I was in NY a friend and I went tunnel hunting for a few days. It was both scary and fascinating. It is flat out mind numbing how many people live UNDER New York City. I think rescuers will find some serious floaters that will up the death toll.

no doubt bloomberg is one of the most corrupt people in America and he has a very dark soul. i wouldn't have to think for even a minute the bloomberg would sacrifice the homeless lives if he could, hell he wanted to ban soft drinks larger than 20oz i believe due to people being over weight.

not to mention not paying for utilities or "protection money" *cough* taxes, the latter being a cardinal sin to city hall

nice "debunking" the photoshop theory earlier though i'm sure it flew over many heads the other pic posted helps clear that up as well, as focusing on the validity of the pic is just derailing IMO.

frankly amazed at all the "it's just a widdle storm" posts
all made from the comfort of their safe locales
or bunkers.
i'm sure bloomberg et. al. would agree with the completely insensitive and lacking any empathy "it'll clean up the city" post. in more ways than one.

Just for the information of the non-New Yorkers on this thread, the photo provided by the OP in NOT the NY subway system, it's the PATH station in Hoboken, NJ.

We are still experiencing record flooding though. Last I heard, all 7 underwater tunnels are flooded, affecting not only the city's subway system, but the LIRR, Metronorth, Amtrak and NJtransit.

NYC buses will begin to operate at 6pm with limited service. All fares are waived for today and tomorrow.

I guess you have never heard of closed circuit TV cameras?.. Lucky you.

I heard major Bloomsberg talking about all the infrastructure that is underground in New York. He's saying that global warming means we'll get more storms like this. So, he wants to build some kind of protective structure around New York. This might be a very big project.
