After a week of chaos and destruction it is hard to imagine life returning to any semblance of normal. We must always remember that we live in the greatest city in the world and no other place rivals the generosity of New Yorkers. For those wondering how they can help, we found a great list of donation and volunteering suggests from WNYC. You can see the desperation of those in need through the eye of fellow blogger, Sketch24blog here.
Looking forward to this week, many retailers have are rescheduled or canceled upcoming sample sales. We know this post is getting repetitive but the information has changed so much that we thought we would repost it all.
