A Week After Hurricane Sandy

New York Magazine Cover highlighting the power outage in NY during/after Hurricane Sandy

If you are able to read this online, chances are you have power and internet. The very fact that I’m able to write this on my computer and post it online showcases how the Lingerie Journal Studios in Westchester, NY and New York City were relatively (and thankfully) spared by Hurricane Sandy.

Some of my friends and family weren’t so lucky. My grandmother’s house was demolished by a falling tree and many of our friends are still without power in parts of the city. There’s a gas shortage in the area of Westchester where I live and all of us are bracing for another Northeaster next week.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to everyone here on the East Coast affected by Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath. If you can help, please contact the Red Cross or your favorite charitable organization to see how you can donate time, support, money, supplies – anything.

If there’s anything the Lingerie Journal team can do to help our neighbors here in New York, please let us know. Please contact us directly at info@thelingeriejournal.com (as most of our team’s cell phones still do not work)

Thank you and stay safe!
