BATTERY PARK, NEW YORK – Lower Manhattan was almost entirely devoid of
people early Sunday morning as the much-anticipated Hurricane Irene
battered the city from the south.Violent winds and heavy rain
swept through the empty streets of the Financial District which had been
evacuated by order of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg together with other
low-lying parts of the city because of the risk of flooding.
