I visited my friend Ed Litvak’s news website thelodownny.com, for news from the old neighborhood following Sandy. Among the reports I ran into this image, of Seward Park Co-op residents helping each other recharge their laptops and phones.

Meanwhile, those co-op residents (which are about one-third Jewish and half of that frum) have put aside their own post-hurricane aches and pains to organize to take care of the numerous elderly residents in the buildings, who have been turned into shut-ins when the power went out and the elevators stopped running.

There are a little over 4500 apartments in those complexes down Grand Street and East Broadway, from Essex Street to the battered East River Park. I’m sure they’ll get it together.
