This afternoon, before the pots came down
Happy Hurricane, everyone. I'm itching to see the action: all low-lying areas under mandatory evacuation, but alas, we will stay put (hear that, Mommy? Moenie worry nie). It's going to be crazy enough with subways, buses and trains shutting down altogether starting at noon tomorrow.
7.29pm - all city beaches are closed. Starting tomorrow, Central Park, Prospect Park, zoos, all state parks and all* farmers markets will be closed. All Broadway shows canceled Saturday and Sunday.
More info here.
* Union Square, Inwood, Fort Green and Grand Army Plaza markets will be open from 8AM-11AM
Here's a link to see what evacuation zone you live in.

The last tomatoes. More about them at Edible Manhattan.
And yes, we have flashlights!
