Sara Misenas, in front of an uprooted tree in Mohegan Lake, New York, said: "Branches and many trees fell here. The storm lasted for over four hours. This morning was windy and the fire department were closing roads and attending to live wires caused by the high winds." Photo: Alec Charriez.
Jorge Escobar: "The facade of this building fell off in Chelsea on 8th Avenue between 14th and 15th Street in Manhattan, New York. The situation is slowly back to normal. Lower Manhattan still had no power on Wednesday and the subway is still closed. Few businesses are open."
Davey Davis: "I went to Manhattan at about 08:00 EDT (12:00 GMT) on Tuesday. I saw a lot of branches down and I took these photos of a flooded carpark near the Goldman Sachs building. The whole place smells rank because of the flood water - there is also a smell of petroleum in the air."
Journalist James Knock, originally from the Cotswolds in the UK, and now living in Brooklyn, New York, said: "We’ve been affected by fallen trees and flying debris. But in true New York style people are out walking their dogs or out jogging doing their best to get their lives back on track."

Expat Lem Lattimer from Brooklyn said he wanted to see the aftermath, so on Wednesday he went to the The Rockaway Peninsula in Queens which got hit really hard. He said: "I love extreme weather but there was no way I was going out while it was all going on.."
