Breaches uptown and downtown along the borders of the city sent rivers into streets that had never before flooded. A full 70 percent of the Mile Square City that is birthplace to Frank Sinatra lies in a flood plain. That 1 percent storm had hit -- a confluence of the high tide of a full moon and the Atlantic Ocean surge.
