New York City - Stand Up!






Several posts tonight and they're going to be split into three. A Fair amount of pictures with each.

Progress is being made in Jefferson, albeit slowly. Those are Entergy trucks on the left working along Jefferson Hwy.



Leaving today I was going to head back Uptown, but decided to try a few different areas. The posts after this will be Old Metairie and then the Lakefront... Stick around for the Lakefront.

Well as I was leaving River Ridge, I came across a few interesting sights... The Jefferson Parish buildings in Elmwood are being powered by massive generators driven in and are beginning to gear up to function as a headquarters.

Most interestingly though is that I discovered that this entire area near the river is being patrolled by New York City Cops... an army of them. I spoke with one and he said there were approximately 300 NYPD Officers and 60-70 vehicles. The pictures speak for themselves.







Gas Line - 5 Gallons Only












NYPD Vans - Their staging ground is the Winn-Dixie on Jeff Hwy. and they sleep in the nursing home next door.









NYPD HQ.













Actual NYC City Busses.

Go NY! Glad to see that we can return the favor of a good neighbor when it's needed.

We saw the buses being escorted by police/squad cars thru the Chinatown area last weekend. We were there touring some European friends around the city. I told my husband I thought the buses were headed to Louisiana. Thanks for the photos confirming that!! GO NYC!
