That said, our window faces a dark, dark lower Manhattan and we've been glued to the constant news and information streams -- radio, paper, instagram, twitter. We have a lot of friends without electricity, hot water, heat. I've gotten lots of emails, text, notices of ways people can help. I've just delivered a few sweatshirts and coats over to Brooklyn Kitchen where they're collecting wearables and edibles for the Rockaways. Below is a list of fundraisers and recovery efforts I know of thus far. If you know of others, please feel free to post in the comments.
