New York Today: Eyes in the Storm


Michael Appleton for The New York Times The Museum of the City of New York needs more Hurricane Sandy photos for a coming exhibition. This one was taken along Avenue C.

Shattered houses, sand-caked cars, felled trees.

Hurricane Sandy printed indelible images on the city’s collective memory.

This fall, an exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York will display many such scenes, captured by both average New Yorkers and professional photographers. The show will be entirely crowd-sourced.

“It’s easy for a lot of people to put this in the back of their mind,” said Sean Corcoran, curator of prints and photographs at the museum.

The show’s intent, he said, was to remind.

Curators are combing through more than 5,000 images — some snapped with iPhones, others with professional cameras — but they want more.

The deadline to submit has been extended to midnight on Thursday.
