Sandy Was Here

I have received so many phone calls, emails, texts, and Facebook messages from friends and family who are concerned and thinking of us over the last two days and I wanted to say: thank you SO much, to all of you! To answer all your questions: we are safe, dry, and perfectly fine. Our neighborhood was only affected by fallen limbs and closed restaurants. We were VERY fortunate; lower Manhattan, parts of Brooklyn and Queens, and so many other cities and states were severely damaged and have a long road to recovery ahead of them.

If you are interested in helping you can look here or here. If you are interested in seeing what the Upper East Side looks like, just look below.

(Special thanks to Husband and Dad-in-Law for the pics…while I spent the day inside staying dry and safe.)

Saks 5th Ave took precautions.

Bergdorf’s looks so sad…
Times Square…even the Disney Store is boarded up!
Lots of fallen trees in Central Park
Right outside my apartment door

We (along with the rest of Manhattan) were sick of being holed up in our apartment, but thankfully, some local diners opened for breakfast. There were only a couple waiters at each diner and hundreds of customers, very anxiously awaiting their coffee and eggs.

Husband got bored during the long wait, and attempted to take some artsy photos.

The East River (just 4 blocks east of us) flooded the FDR Drive, but luckily didn’t get much further into my neighborhood.

*Stole this off a news site…but we were there like 10 minutes later.*

Now, I just have to add this picture of Manhattan, that shows the area without power. It’s crazy to see the city so dark!

That’s a lot of people without power. *also stolen…last one, I swear!*

Thanks again for your thoughts, kind words, and prayers. Now, you can channel some of those towards the people who really need them, and we’ll do the same.
