New York City has many eager volunteers, showing up at such places as the Blessed Vrigin Mary church in Red Hook, where 120 volunteers came Sunday, many of which had to be redirected to other places. Phish frontman Trey Anastasio was also there.

The band-leader brought bags of diapers and batteries, handing them out to a line of people in need of supplies. He has a friend who lives in Red Hook, and says “his house is under water. I’ve spent the day helping him, pulling out dry wall. It’s really bad there. Really bad.”

Hurricane Sandy gave the waterfront city of New York, as well as most the East Coast, a severe beating this last week, diverting national interest a bit from our rapt attention on the presidential election — though both candidates commented on the events in a manner to make themselves look good. Questions about the propriety of FEMA came up, and charities have been asking for contributions to help restabilize the ravished areas.
