As we reported last night, the Upper West Side is now housing evacuees from all over the city, because we have power and food. It’s time to roll out the welcome mat! Just learned this from Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal:
“Upper West Side shelter needs help: clothes in large sizes needed for Sandy evacuees at MS 118, 154 West 93 St.”
Update: We now hear that they have enough clothes. Thanks to everyone who gave!
There are three shelters in the neighborhood. The one at John Jay College had enough volunteers last night (not sure about tonight yet) but the following two were running low on volunteers and will need help again tonight, including for overnight shifts:
Brandeis High School on West 84th Street (between Amsterdam & Columbus Avenues).
MS 118 on 93rd Street (between Amsterdam & Columbus Avenues)
