As Hurricane Sandy battered Manhattan I nervously watched from my 12th floor West Village Co-op while simultaneously monitoring Facebook posts by friends and acquaintances. On the 42nd floor of a No-Mad condo a friend posted a hair-raising 10-sec video of his overhead lamps swinging wildly from right to left as though he was on a ship in a storm. “What are you still doing there?” a concerned friend asked.  Where would he go, I thought? Other friends have had to leave their Manhattan homes due to basement floods which killed electrical systems.

Home? Where is it? That is the question now for thousands who have been made homeless in New York. My heart goes out to those who are still out in the cold or their apartments.Here are some links for Zone-A residents, Tenant Advice on Curbed, Photos from New York Magazine and other websites.
