Hurricane Sandy – how to help
I hope that all my friends, clients, and colleagues in the industry are ok after the storm. All is well here, Sunnyside Queens didn’t get hit too bad, we were extremely lucky considering some neighboring areas are completely devastated and half of Manhattan is still in the dark.
If you are in NYC or the surrounding areas, here is how we can all help, or get help, in this time of need:
– Sunnyside’s Stray Vintage is collecting donations for hurricane victims
– Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer’s office is collecting food, water, blankets, garbage bags, work gloves, batteries, cell phone chargers, and cleaning supplies
– Subway service maps – MTA.info
The day after the storm I walked around the neighborhood and snapped a few photos with my phone – there were a few downed trees but I was happy to see the cleanup efforts were already under way. My heart is with those who did not fare so well.
