Update #12

Hope Everyone is OK After Sandy

Comment

Hi All, 

Just a note amongst the recovery efforts and news surrounding Hurricane Sandy that all of us at + POOL hope that you and your loved ones are all dry and safe.  Things are still pretty weird here in blacked-out Lower Manhattan, but it's nothing compared to how places like Staten Island, Breezy Point other neighborhoods across NY and NJ were hit.  The resilience, camaraderie and patience city-wide has been incredible, and we hope everything can get cleaned-up, rebuilt, and turned back on soon.

If you would like to and are able to help in any way please volunteer or donate:

Huge thanks for all the efforts across the city and please take care everyone!
