A Tornado in Queens 2010 (New Podcast)

Two years ago this week (September 2010) a tornado swept through Queens, New York and cut a swath of destruction through the borough.

Cars were crushed by trees, trees which also took down power lines. Unearthed enormous roots from said trees also overturned sidewalks and blocked streets, making transportation hazardous and haphazard.

Where were we? Safe at home? No, we were in a doctors office - with our (then) nine-year-old son. This episode recounts how one man, his pregnant wife, and their son navigated through a path of wreckage and got home.

Speaking of Queens, the second segment talks about the difference between buildings that have history and those that are landmarks. Specifically, sports stadiums.
