Concrete People

 I have a lot to write in the near future and I will update on many of the events here in NYC and the progress of our recovery from Hurricane Sandy which I believe will take a very long for now this is the little I have to post about..The beach parking lots are used to sift through demolished homes and load the debris filled with lifetimes of memory into the dump trucks to be carted off into the abyss of a memory.

 Cedar Grove Community Hub which has been running a tent that has fed, clothed, renovate homes, and help their community in every way possible has been a source of strength for the people recovering and an inspiration to Staten Island who has seen these dedicated volunteers make leaps and bounds to acquire the essentials to keep people surviving in their damaged homes...they could use any donations of Sterno fuel, Food Pans, Food, etc...Like their page and contact them if you can help, or me and I'll get it to them. Thank you. #KONYH

 An excavator works in the distance to remove remnants of homes and begin to rebuild all that was destroyed due to Hurricane Sandy, as this lone staircase in the marsh is a reminder of how much has been lost in New Dorp beach Staten Island. 

 A lone tree swing tire pronounces the void of the houses swept away by Hurricane Sandy and the lives that were forever changed because of the devastation...Kissam Ave Staten Island where 14 of 17 homes were swept off their foundations forever changing the landscape of the coastline. 

 Its hard to believe this is the calm harbor that only a few months ago swept in and took homes and lives changing our lives once again...forever.

 ...and yet the beauty of the sea still exists and brings us hope.

 Concrete jungle where dreams are made of...

...and lots of Concrete people helping to put this city back together again...the most common phrase from all the affected areas and people I've spoken to who are at wits end dealing with the Gov't and Insurance agencies is "We take care of our own"...and thats how progress has happened so far...Concrete people I tell ya.

I may not be as hard as concrete, but linking up with everyone else and helping recover is what makes us all concrete in this jungle we know as New York City....but hey, what do I know, I'm not a contractor...but my taxi is pointed forward towards the future with a heart full of hope as I remain...

Edward...The King of New York Hacks.

Peace out peeps.
