Live New York Web (And Sound) Cam

Tyler Durden's picture

Because the only thing more informative than watching a shut down New York get blown (away) by Sandy, is hearing it live. Watch, and listen, as downtown New York, very much unprepared for what may be a record flood surge, gets the Venice treatment.

ZH is now officially part of the main stream media. Complete with useless video of the rain. Just need some idiot with a mic. standing out in it now telling us its rainy and windy

Zer0head's picture

Stackers you are wrong

the eye of the storm will be passing direclty over Manhattan, that is a fact and don't challenge it


Stackers's picture

I guess my sarc. typing didnt come through, lol.

Zer0head's picture

too late


here is the map to prove it  LOL sarc off/on


stay safe all you dumbass reporters (as your camera crew employ  fans and a garden hose for effect)

I can't wait for the first live shot of a fallen branch in CP

Here is a possible preview of today's events. The flooding starts at 2:41 into the video.

The only sound I want to hear from the City of Doomberg is this:

The country and planet will be better off...

FEDbuster's picture

God (or Mother Nature depending upon your views) had a choice between Washington DC or Wall Street, he almost made the storm big enough to wipe them both out.  Just God doing God's work.

When I get censored for saying fuck, shit, Jews, asshole, then, and only then, will ZH be mainstream.

TruthInSunshine's picture

It's a win-win-win. Cable News & Weather Channel ad rates double, local & state politicians get tons of BernankBux dumped into their laps, and publicly traded corporation can blame ever larger earnings' misses on The Storm of The Century.

I wonder who bought the rights for the movie, teeeveee mini-series, novel, Broadway Show &  the Chris "Still Hungry 4 More" Christie/Mayor Mike "Only Terrorist People Drink Big Gulps!" Bloomberg/Barack "Saved And/Or Created" Obama/Jim "I'll Stand In This Drive Thru Car Wash While Camera Guy Takes The Shot" Cantore/Chad "Godamnit, I'm A Weatherman, Not Nostradamus" Meyers action figures?


The storm of the century!

tsx500's picture

you forgot one more 'win' .... is this storm not an absolutely perfectly-timed distraction (for POTUS) from Benghazi-gate  ?!     

old naughty's picture

we are just getting into the second decade...and you are predicting Sandy is the storm of the century?

You have no faith.

keesooi's picture

Hi guys, sorry, just woke up, noticed it's a bit windy and drizzly outside.  Anything going on? I'm on Staten Island, NY.

Who's this "Sandy" y'all kvetching about?

Leopold B. Scotch's picture

They've just renamed it "Satan" Island.  You can go back to sleep.

keesooi's picture

Hilarious, Leopold.  With comments like this, I'm indeed better off sleeping.

I find her interesting because she's a client and because she sleeps above her covers... four feet above her covers.

ShrNfr's picture

Actually, since Bloomberg is mayor, I would expect the asshole of the storm to pass over Manhattan.

Get that stuttering, tongue tied CNN reporter with the Eyetalian surname !

Just wear some earplugs and then go about your bidness.

Well it's not like it's impacting the financial and political nexus of the western world along with a full 20% of the nation's population.  Oh wait...

"ZH is now officially part of the main stream media."

The problem with the MSM is not that it covers disasters and other sensational news in real time.  The problem with MSM is that this is ALL that it covers.    A hurricane hitting NY is legitimate news and ZH would be silly not to cover it.    


Zer0head's picture

and where exactly in NY will it be hitting?   from what I can tell its first stop in the great state of NY  will be just outside of Buffalo


don't believe the HYPE


The minute they see me, fear me
I'm the epitome - a public enemy
Used, abused without clues
I refused to blow a fuse
They even had it on the news
Don't believe the hype...

ManOfBliss's picture

OMGGG big moving colors!!!

I live in Philly... right where the alleged storm is/will hit. 

Right now, it's trickling rain. And according to Accuweather today's the only day it will rain over 1 inch in all of the Philadelphia area.

*** NON-EVENT ***

Matt's picture

The eye of the storm is not too important in this case; what matters is rainfall and storm surge.

There isn't going to be masses of buildings wiped off their foundations by winds, there are no major areas below sea level, until the sea level comes up to them. 

real-time feed from buoyd measuring sea level, air pressure and wave heights would be more useful than the statue of liberty web cam, since water coming up a few feet won't look like much. Funny thing, people are terrified of fire, but totally calm around flooding, when water kills more people than fire every year.

in-Credible Banker's picture

Near Buffalo??  Say it ain't so!


I think you read the map incorrectly.  Heavy rain here, but nothing we can't handle after a summer long drought.
