A fellow named Max writes:

Hello Miss Heather,
Hope you’re safe and all that. Wanted to share a Greenpoint Sandy photo. I am fortunate enough to live on Dupont St. and have a great skyline view. Here’s what I just shared on my instagram/facebook:

A bright rainbow appears in front of the NYC Skyline after Sandy’s worst. I love my view, I LOVE THIS TOWN #nyc #sandy #greenpoint #rainbowconnection

Hope you like it and share it… Stay safe and warm and all that crap!

Outstanding shot, Max— thank you so much for passing it along!

Quicklinks: Resources For Small Businesses Impacted By Sandy & More

These resources have been brought to my attention by the fine folks at EWVIDCO (East Williamsburg Valley Industrial Development Corporation, for those of you who are not in the know). Via their Facebook page:

Please forward to any Greenpoint businesses impacted by Sandy

“NYC Dept. of Small Business Services has an Emergency Response Unit specifically to provide assistance for businesses that are forced to interrupt their operations due to “unavoidable disasters” such as Hurricane Sandy. This unit has helped businesses deal with a wide range of issues.

SMALL BUSINESS EMERGENCY RESPONSE UNIT – HOTLINE
If your business is interrupted and you think you need assistance, call the Emergency Response Unit Hotline at 212-618-8810. OR send an email with a description of your issue and a way they can contact you to: BOT-ERU@SBS.NYC.GOV”

Done! Those who are in need (or are simply curious) can can get more information about applying for disaster assistance via FEMA by clicking here. Otherwise, this incredibly handy portal can not only help you determine if you qualify for help, but you can apply for aid there as well. Check ‘em out!
