it's disheartening to see photos i took a few weeks ago, knowing that parts of the city no longer look the same. many continue to be without power, heat, and hot water while others have lost their homes and loved ones. new york is a resilient city and in time order will be restored. i urge you to help out in any way possible not only to new yorkers, but surrounding cities effected as well.
check out new york cares for a list of volunteer opportunities in the area. if you're interested in helping with park clean up, you can sign up for service in manhattan, the bronx, or queens.
please share any other ways to help! you can also donate here.
have a restful and blessed weekend.
