Walking through Queens, I came across a Woodhaven based relief center providing food, clothes and money to those in Far Rockaway and Coney Island. They share what their immediate needs are and how you can help those uprooted by “Sandy”.
I was walking up 4th avenue in Brooklyn and I see something I have never seen before. Cars were in 2 lines. Each was over a mile. Some drivers had been waiting for over 10 hours. I talk to the drivers and gas-traffic cop as I walk the line of cars. People’s cars were running out of gas so they had to push their way along.
Thursday afternoon I took a stroll from Delancey to Union Square. At Clinton & Houston, I talked with the owner art-bar Culture Fix. Then met a homelss crew that shared some advice for those temporarily homeless. As I was walking up 1st avenue, I noticed about 30 or so people standing around outside 100 year old Saifee hardware store. They were all charging their batteries. The owner is sharing the power from their generator and provided multiple outlets. At 12th street and 1st avenue, I notice a sign for free curry and met the owner of Sapparo restaurant. They have been in business for over 30 years. The resturant was full and people were leaving tips of appreciation. As I was leaving the East Village, I came across the Guardian Angels, who shared some important tips for roaming the NYC streets wihout street lights.
The Guardian Angels share some advice on safety.
Sapporo restaurant is a 30 year staple of the East Village. I noticed the sign for free curry and asked the owner their story.
