This isn't fake. I wonder why people even think of doing things like this.

I suppose the prospect of a mega-storm hitting New York is so dramatic in terms of visual potential - we've seen enough films about it, after all - that the actual thing was a big anti-climax for us outsiders. No walls of water surging down Fifth Avenue, or buildings crashing to the ground. The worst damage was unseen, in the flooded subway tunnels. So it's no surprise that someone would try and make an image that lived up to the billing.

As for the time-lapse video, it's an obvious thing to do, isn't it? And not much effort - the guy just fixes his camera up then collects it a couple of days later. Unfortunately the only dramatic moment is when the Manhattan lights go out.
