The New York Post said it best, nothing I can add….
The Post details reaction from outraged online observers, as well as neighborhood residents who are apparently dealing with many tourists using the disaster as an “Instagram Moment”:
“‘Disgusting beyond words,’ wrote a commenter on the local-news blog EV Grieve, which reposted the snap.’Take a look at these people. Remember their faces,’ wrote Diane DiDonato, of Brooklyn, on Facebook.
‘They don’t deserve those smiles. People are dying behind them.’ Others called it ‘disaster porn.’ ‘It’s heartless,’ said Maurice Herz, 83, of the East Village.
‘THIS IS A TRAGEDY NOT A TOURIST ATTRACTION,’ one frustrated neighbor wrote in a sign taped to a front door on nearby 7th Street. ‘SHOW SOME RESPECT,’ the sign demanded.”
