I don’t usually post straight up news items on Faux, but after seeing this incredible footage of the NYC skyline as Hurricane Sandy assaults the coast – we had to post it.

It shows (from atop two of the North Piers) the storm approaching, the slow build and the dramatic sudden loss of power as the wind and rain flood over the lower Manhattan.
