I passed this sign approximately 100 times pre-
Now it’s a good reminder that people are still hurting on multiple levels.
If you want to help, here are a few ways to consider.
Shop at a local business in a region affected by the storm.
Connect directly with a family in need. Here’s

The forecast called for non-accumulating snow in NYC (or so I thought).
I normally enjoy some snow, but now I’d just like to get back to normal.
During the first day after the storm, I went to my go-to cafe for a bit, but it was packed and I felt bad taking a seat away from storm refugees desperate to charge electronics and enjoy a hot beverage. I had both power and internet at home.
Damage in my neighborhood was minimal.

Whole Foods is slated to open in
Williamsburg at the intersection of Bedford Avenue and N. 4th Street mid-2014. For now, though, the site is a more or less a boarded up, open-air, unfinished warehouse.

Sandy made an impact.
Is it any wonder this lamppost fell down?
Bedford Avenue is Williamsburg’s main drag so the city is very fortunate no one was killed as it keeled over.
New York City’s infrastructure is crumbling. This is the tip of the iceberg.
