A City Coming Together

It's been two weeks since Hurricane Sandy, and the area is still recovering. Unbelievably, there are still neighborhoods that are without power, heat, or hot water.  I've seen some extraordinary efforts throughout the city of people helping each other out. In my neighborhood, a local resident has organized a donation drive.
I decided to buy some supplies to drop it off. I picked up some winter gloves, batteries, goggles, tooth paste, soap, and socks. It's not much, but every little bit helps if the community comes together and donates.
These are photos of all the many, many donation centers in the Rockaways and Long Beach.  In all this tragedy, this coming together of people of this community to help one another, to help your fellow neighbor, is quite a beautiful sight.
