New York City’s Financial District is located in a low-lying area of Manhattan, and much of the area has been evacuated for Hurricane Sandy. The storm is expected to hit the East Coast of the US later on Monday. The New York Stock Exchange closed due to the storm, and many markets have been disrupted. Here’s a look at the quiet streets of the Financial District:
