Hurricane Sandy Photo I: Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn
Apart from a few downed trees in Carroll park, some overturned newspaper boxes, and a lot of fallen leaves, Carroll Gardens looked pretty much unscathed this afternoon.
This picture shows a huge tree in Carroll Park that toppled into the adjacent street, crushing at least one car. See full-sized image.
