If everyone in NY dies during the hurricane the world will lose some of it's worst drivers so the hurricane would be doing the world a favor in that case but considering it's just a hurricane you need to relax and enjoy the weather because very few, if any people will die due to a simple hurricane. Chill the heck out.
I suggest you stay inside, the power will probably go out so don't open the fridge unless needed. Stay calm and collected. You can't stop a hurricane but do not get a car and try and drive away. Make sure you and loved ones are safe and you'll be ok.
Look bro, I live in Philly, and the worst part of the storm is going to smack this city right in the face. And I live next to a forest full of really, really old trees. And my house is old, and has a lot of leaky places. But do I sound worried? Nuh uh. Just stay inside, stay off the Coast, make sure you have plenty of flashlights, batteries, and candles, stay out of low areas, and you'll be fine. Crimeny.
