NATURE’S DOUBLE WHAMMY ACROSS QUEENS



Still reeling from Hurricane Sandy, Queens neighborhoods got hit again by Mother Nature last Wednesday, Nov. 7, in the form of a nor’easter that dumped several inches of snow. While warm weather in the days that followed quickly melted the white stuff, the storm itself proved problematic in some spots, as the wind and snow knocked down trees and power lines weakened previously by the hurricane. Shown above are (clockwise from top left) snow-covered roofs and streets at the corner of Juniper Valley Road and Pleasantview Street in Middle Village, a fallen tree on 74th Avenue near Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills, a split tree on Fresh Pond Road near Myrtle Avenue in Ridgewood and snow-covered lines across 70th Avenue near 68th Street in Glendale.
