They must have some powerful generators capable not only of maintaining the elevators and all of those services still on but also outside/inside lights.

Looks like One Penn's got its lights on too, hang in there midtown!
I wonder what's up with the trio of much maligned skyscrapers downtown that I've taken a liking to, 55 Water and One and Two New York Plaza? Flooded basements, water in the lobbies?

How long do you guys think it would take to drain all the water from the site? It looks very bad down there


Oh, and the WTC Earthcam cameras are back up!

Sand bags

Didn't anyone consider sand bagging the site? It will cost millions more to clean that up.
