Someone linked to this picture above on Gothamist Contribute-- it seems to depict a really big tidal wave hitting New York City. However, we can't be quite sure-- if you look at the big version, it sort of looks like the Chrysler Building is in the background at the upper left-- but we don't recgonize any of the other buildings. To further complexify things, the original page is in Russian-- can anyone read the title and tell us if this is supposed to be NYC or not?

And lest you think a tidal wave in New York isn't possible, check out some horrifying articles on the possible collapse of La Palma island off the coast of North Africa, and the near certain destruction that would ensue for New York and other cities on the East coast.
