New York City is unrecognizable right now due to Hurricane Sandy, as many famous areas are submerged in water, while others are completely dark.

The Financial District is completely absent of light, other than the Freedom Tower, as buildings have been evacuated, while others shut down the power.

Public Housing buildings all over the city have shut elevators down and locked doors. People inside have to stay inside and people outside have to stay outside.

The Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel is flooded with four feet of water, and it appears it will take weeks to clear out.

Ground Zero at the World Trade Center has numerous waterfalls as water from the Hudson is pouring in, while many subway tunnels are being infiltrated by rivers of saltwater, which are doing tremendous damage to the system.

Low-lying neighborhoods like the Rockaways and Coney Island have had mandatory evacuations in place, but many residents refused to leave. Now, they are submerged under a dozen feet of water, and there is no way for emergency responders to help the residents still there.

In addition, a four-story apartment building on 14th St. and 8th Ave. has lost its entire façade, which came crashing down on an SUV parked in front.

The FDR Drive is also completely submerged, with water touching overpasses in some areas.

This is an unprecedented situation in New York City’s history, and while authorities are doing their best to handle it, it is truly a storm of magnitude that the city has not seen before, and is nearly impossible to handle.

We will keep you updated as we receive more images, videos and details. Be sure to check Elite Daily for all of your Hurricane Sandy updates, as we are on scene and getting information first-hand other media outlets cannot give you.
