RAMPING IT UP: A tree fell on Pearson Street between Avenues U and T, ripping up the sidewalk and trapping some people inside their homes. Police cordoned off the sidewalk, presumably to ensure kids on bikes don’t use the angled cement as a ramp.

Click on the photos above for images from around Brooklyn. We’ll post more as we get them.

Hurricane Irene didn’t pack quite the punch that was predicted, but it still did plenty of damage in Brooklyn, including downed trees, flooded streets, and wide-scale power outages, which most-certainly affected our editor.

We’ll have photos and updates regarding the storm throughout the day, plus our columnists take on other things (they have a very early deadline), so check back soon.
