It’s been almost one year to the day that we were slammed by Hurricane Sandy, plunging most of us into darkness and uncertainty. The damage was massive and a true harbinger of the effects of climate change.

The Museum of the City of New York was inundated with thousands of images after an open callout to all photographers. The selection of 200 shows just what our city looked like during and after the storm. “Rising Waters” opens tonight at the museum, and as someone involved with the selection of photographs, I have to say this is one terrific show.

I can’t wait until tonight to see it all on the walls of the museum. I encourage everyone to come out, support your fellow photographers, support the museum, and support our city.
