Thankfully we and my family were not effected by Hurricane Sandy, minus a few trees down in our area of Brooklyn. My heart goes out to all of those who have lost their homes, power, family/friends and personal items. I just can't wrap my head around the devastation that Sandy has left parts of NJ, CT, and NY in. I would NEVER have imagined my City underwater. Then again I would have never imagined someone flying a plane into the World Trade Center. But these devastation happened and as us New Yorkers do we stay strong, we rise up and take care of each other. I hate that New Yorkers get such a bad rep, that we are all rude, mean, and selfish. It's so funny whenever I tell someone that I'm from New York (born and raised) they always seem so surprised and then follow it up with something like "you are to nice to be from New York." Yes, we are kind, nice, and friendly just don't get on our bad side. What a lot of people don't know is that New York is a community especially in certain areas (which you can see a lot of in the outside boroughs). Manhattan also has a sense of community but it's different and you never realize it until your life slows down a bit.

Anyway these photos were taken yesterday, one of the very few times this week I put on real clothes. You know, unlike the sweat pants, band t-shirt, and hoodie I have been living in. Being that it would take me way to long to actually travel to work, due to the lack of transportation, I was asked to stay home. The one thing I miss about actually going into work-- dressing up. Yes it was nice for the first day to not go anywhere to just roll up out of bed and not have to change...then it got old real fast. The thing I will miss from working at home being able to sleep in, I love sleep.

This weekend the fiancee and I will be going to donation sites in Brooklyn to donate goods that we have at home and whatever else we can find. If you live in New York here is a really good Google map app to find places to donate goods and time- here.  Don't live in New York then you can donate money to the Red Cross to help victims of Sandy-- here.

  1. just stumbled upon your blog, nice to find a fellow new york blogger. my husband and I live in downtown Manhattan in zone A and had lots of damage to our building, still wait to go home. Like you said sleeping in and not having anything to do is nice at first but it gets old really fast! Looking forward to getting back to normal hopefully soon! glad you guys were safe from the storm!

  2. Going to totally sound like your mother but I'm so worried about you tripping on those shoe laces!!! haha

    Aw so glad you're going out to help in Brooklyn. I definitely wish I could get more involved but it's a little difficult to get from Midtown to BK right now :/

    And totally agree that New Yorkers are pretty awesome. I found LA people much ruder.

  15. So glad to hear you & your loved ones are all alight, I feel awful for those who've lost everything, it's kinda hard to believe. I do think it's wonderful to see so many peoples community spirit showing & seeing everyone really sticking together to help each other out though. I really admire you for going along & donating your goods to those who need them too.
