The remnants of Hurricane Delta are bringing cold, wet, dreary weather and weather-related damage in some areas.
In Brighton Beach, the roads were slippery and slick with some pockets of flooding.
In Bensonhurst, the area of 60th Street and Dahill Road was taped off because of a fallen streetlamp. There was also a fallen telephone pole further down the road and right in the middle of the street that pulled down some wires along with it.
Crews were working to clean up the mess and the area was blocked off to cars because the streetlight fell right in the middle of the intersection.
There were also some periodic strong wind gusts in the area throughout the day, and it's possible that the damage was weather-related.
There is also power outages reported in Gravesend and in Madison, which has over 40 customers without power.
