In this photo provided by the New York City Mayor's Office, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg thanks FDNY personnel in Staten Island, Monday August 29, 2011, for rescuing 61 adults and three babies during Hurricane Irene after the lake in Willowbrook Park overflowed. Bloomberg made an expensive, inconvenient and politically risky call, ordering 370,000 people to leave their homes in low-lying areas. But after the city ended up not seeing the urban nightmare Bloomberg had warned about, the mayor made no apologies. (AP Photo/New York City Mayor's Office, Edward Reed) less
