Following Sandy: Our Neighbors in Need

Many residents in and near our area are still without power, heat, or water.  Some are elderly or infirmed, and some have small children.

Two complexes in need are Westbeth in the West Village and Fulton Houses between 16th and 19th Streets in Chelsea.

To help at Fulton Houses:
Come at noon or 3pm to the Fulton Auditorium at 119 Ninth Avenue (at 17th Street; see purple pin above) to go door to door to assess the needs of Fulton Houses’ residents.

To help at Westbeth:
Head to 55 Bethune Street (at West and Washington Streets; see red pin above) at 4pm to help carry water to residents’ apartments.

Thank you for any help you can provide for our neighbors in need.
