Two weekends ago we were visiting New York City. This was a post I had put together for today with some shots from around the city. This week the city faced Hurricane Sandy not too long after she passed by us here in Florida. My heart goes out to all my friends that may be without power and suffered losses from the storm. I love New York. I hope you enjoy these photos of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

I know this is supposed to be a wordless post…

but if you are wondering what you can do to help out those in need from Hurricane Sandy, I found this info and am sharing some links found on NBC news’ website today:

New York is the most resilient city there is. We all love New York! I know they will recover from this and be stronger than ever. There is truly no city like it. Thanks for sharing the photos and the information.

Beautiful post, and thanks for taking the time to give us all of this information. I have family in NYC, we stayed in touch the entire time. Very scarey and and a very long time to clean this up and recover now.

I love NY street Vendor food. As a kid, I would get the warm chestnuts with my mom while looking at the holiday windows.

Great way to reach out to people struggling with the storm. We Floridians know it all too well!
