My thoughts are with all of you in the dark and affected by Sandy. For those of us that made it through unscathed, it is great to see NYC mobilize and help each other out. Here are some resources on ways to help NYC get back up and running.. more vibrant then ever before.
Please note SVA is without power and is rescheduling their open house to Nov 16 take a look here.Brooklyn General
Galapagos Art Space
Robert Elmes and Co. regularly host Creative Mornings and other events at Galapagos. Their space was completely innundated and they need a helping hand. A fundraiser has been established by Tina Roth Eisenberg.
(check @powerhousebooks on twitter for updates and future fundraising efforts)
Powerhouse Arena and Books is hundreds of feet from the waterfront, yet over 28" of flood waters washed into their space and destroyed much of their inventory. They do not have flood insurance. A fundraising announcement will be made in the next few days.
