On Sunday, the Queens Museum of Art hosted an open house fundraiser event for the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance, an organization they chose because, not only has RWA contributed to urgent relief and recovery efforts since Sandy, but “they are smart, committed, and on the Rockaway Peninsula for the long haul.” The theme of the event – “Revive, Renew, Rebuild” – was carried out in creative ways by a collection of artists, businesses, museum professionals, and other community members.
Well, it’s been now over a week (closer to a week and a half) since Hurricane Sandy hit. How are you doing these days? Is your power and/or internet back on? Have you been able to take care of that which is needed to get assistance? Have you been able to clean up if you sustained damage? How is your family doing? We are hopeful that you and yours are ok. Let us know in the comments or via twitter at @queensnycity.

It was almost instantaneous – our friends and neighbors around New York City identified the needs of those hit hardest by the surges of Sandy and swung into action.
Want to help, too? The following resources are designed to connect your resources – good stuffs, man-power, funds, blood, and clothes – to those in need in the Tri-State region and in Queens.
American Red Cross The Red Cross is uniquely qualified to handle the most serious issues affecting victims of Sandy. You can donate money, skills, and importantly, blood, for which they are specifically asking. They’re also at work in the Caribbean, Sandy’s first stop in her path of destruction.
