The Day After - Coney Island Ave, Brooklyn


The picture above is becoming the iconic image of Blizageddon 2010 - showing abandoned cars, taxis and buses on Coney Island Avenue in Brooklyn the day after the storm. Now we have video ...

 
BTW: since when are there so many yellow cabs in Brooklyn??


It kind of reminds me of the 1983 TV Movie - The Day After  (below) - which depicted a nuclear holocaust and scared the crap outta me when I was in high school. Back then we weren't afraid of terrorists per se, but we were completely frightened of the big, bad Soviet Union and their nuclear arsenal. This ghost-town-like video of NYC creeps me out just the same as the movie did.

David, the top photo looks like it should be part of a Hollywood apocalypse film.

It reminded me of a scene from the same film, David. Either that or the Alsaka town from the movie '30 Days of Night'.
