Leave it to New York magazine to sum it up quietly and beautifully. I feel bad for not being there with my East Coast friends and family for the storm or the clean up. My place on 4th and Avenue C had no power until Saturday along with everyone else on the Lower East Side, but I’m in LA right now so trying to ease my guilt by gathering stuff to send to wherever it’s needed. The Recovery.Org site lists all the neighborhoods in need with direct phone numbers to contact. Friends who work with brands that can donate, please send jeans, sweaters, coats, t-shirts and shoes to our beloved NYC and those that have lost their homes and belongings. Direct donations can go to first responders like UPS, USPS, and FedEx. A list below of all of the emergency stuff they need and where to send it to in New Jersey as well. I love you New York, you make me happy even when you make my heart ache. Sending you love and more.
