I live on the corner of Broadway and Worth Street in lower Manhattan.
Because of Hurricane Sandy, I haven’t had water, electricity, Internet or cell-phone reception since Monday afternoon.
To leave my apartment, I need to walk 15 flights with a flashlight. When I exit the building at the ground floor, there are no working traffic lights, no open stores or restaurants and no real signs of life outside. My neighborhood — home of City Hall, hectic Canal Street and the Federal Building — usually is a bustling center of activity and business.
It’s a ghost town now.
I’ve seen a lot over the past 96 hours.
The one thing I haven’t seen?
And I’m not ashamed to say it: Hell, I miss sports.
