Here’s a look at some of the best uploads from around New York, Miami and Los Angeles.

1. Photographer Evan Joseph commemorated the 16th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks with this sky-high snap of One World Trade Center.

3. Some real estate players decided to ride out Hurricane Irma in South Florida, like Brown Harris Stevens Miami exec Mark Zilbert. This video shows the impact of the storm’s winds on his 35th-floor apartment.

4. Hurricane Irma toppled two cranes in Miami, and another in Fort Lauderdale. After the skies cleared and the wind subsided, Cranespotters captured the carnage — though industry players say the city weathered the storm pretty well.
