NYC's Rockaway Neighborhood Needs Us: VIDEO


NYC's Rockaway Beach neighborhood was among those hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy. Documentarian Alex Braverman produced this powerful mini-documentary about the damage to the area and its residents, narrated by a voicemail he received from his friend Michelle Cortez who lives there.


Information on how to help the Rockaways can be found here. You can go to THIS WEBSITE to find volunteer opportunities in NYC.

In case you missed it over the weekend, NYC's Ali Forney Center, the largest shelter for LGBT Homeless Youth here in New York, suffered extensive damage in the storm. Click HERE to donate to the center.

There's going to be a benefit for the Ali Forney Center on November 11 at industry Bar in Hell's Kitchen. More info HERE.

  1. When I first met my man, he went home to Rockaway and sent pics of him surfing his home break, it blew my mind! There were icicles everywhere in the frame of this left handed barrel with Mr. Man surfing it at below freezing! This is what these folks are made of, and they need a little something to get back up? It makes me thankful for the link. We'll do what we can. Stay strong, NY!

  2. City Hall certainly left them dangling in the wind. I don't blame the outer boroughs getting p*ssed off with all the attention Manhattan gets.

    On a side note, this is a pre-view of what will occur when [not if but when] something really spectacular occurs. And everyone can see the general clusterf*ck caused by this storm. Imagine a REALLY bad natural event or nuclear, biological or EMP attack?
