Sleepy Hollow NY - Ichabod's LandingIt was just last week that Irene ripped through the tri-state area dumping a foot of water, strong winds and leaving flooding, downed power lines, and chaos in its wake. Although Westchester NY got off pretty easy when we consider what happened elsewhere, there were sections that were heavy hit.  In many ways I assumed that the River Towns and particularly the river front area would have been a prime target for damage.  I heard nothing on the local news about Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.   There was some discussion of downed trees, but nothing serious.  The eastern portion of the county – Mamaroneck in particular seems to have sustained a much bigger blow.

Nevertheless, it was with some trepidation that I arrived on the scene – camera in hand to take some post-Irene  photos of the area.    After all, the area directly abuts the Hudson River.  A river known for strong currents and heavy waves.  It had just sustained a direct hit from a Category 1 hurricane – nothing to sneeze at in an area that rarely sees hurricanes.   But as I took out my camera and started shooting – it was truly  like it had never even happened.    And no – I didn’t mean to hijack the CertaPro  slogan….that’s just the way it seemed to me.  The next day – Saturday – I had the privilege of  showing both Hudson Harbor and Ichabod’s Landing.   Both complexes right on the river – but no flooding at all!  It was truly like hurricane Irene had visited briefly and slipped away like a ghost in the night….and we should be duly grateful for her soft footprint on the area.

Enjoy the pics….
