'New York, NY, USA - November 30, 2012: One month ago, the Hurricane Sandy storm surge which coincided with a full moon spring tide caused the East River to flood over its banks onto South Street, seen in this photo, and other roads in the area and into the basements and first floors of small and large buildings located in this area of Lower Manhattan. This building suffered extensive flooding damage to the electicial supply system, the basement and first floors. The NYC Department of Buildings (DOB) has placed a red Unsafe for use notice on the door of 104 South Street, which is a few yards from the East River. Unsafe means that the building canot be used until it has been repaired and inspected by the DOB. Scaffolding surrounds the building. In the distance, the FDR overpass can be seen.'
