CROWN HEIGHTS - Crown Heights residents are confronting the reality of Hurricane Irene's wrath, dealing with downed wires and toppled trees this morning. The storm uprooted trees and sent branches flying into parked cars. One resident says he witnessed a tree fall onto a sidewalk on St. John's Place, right in front of a senior living center. "The rain had stopped but the winds starting picking up, and it just came down with a loud crash," Maurice Mizrahi said. The storm came on shore as a tropical storm yesterday morning, with winds of 70 mph.Crown Heights sees numerous downed trees
