Watch a time-lapse video of Sandy hitting New York

Here’s a video Jalopnik found via Silas Maniatis of Hurricane Sandy hitting New York City from the top of 2 Northside Piers. The time-lapse footage shows the slow graying of the city throughout Monday, the growing wind speeds, the bursts of horizontal rain, the slight flooding by the piers, then finally at night, the power outage in lower Manhattan. It’s eerie watching such a monstrous storm come and go in just two minutes. Watch above.
