Hoping for Resilience in the Aftermath of Sandy

As you likely know, tragedy struck the northeast on Monday, October 29. Hurricane Sandy barreled toward the coast that evening, leaving many wondering the outcome of her arrival.

Many homes destroyed and public utilities and services left damaged and useless. A national crisis is on our hands as citizens of Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and other states wait desperately for relief. In our own city—a global center of commerce, creativity, media, and diplomacy—the effect is beyond traceable.

Hotel Belleclaire proudly calls New York City its home, and is equally proud to be part of New York State and to share its borders with New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and others affected by the storm. Our hearts break for those who cannot replace what has been lost, but we know with certainty that our people are resilient. Our thoughts are with the community, and we tip our hats to those joining in the relief efforts—among them our friends, our employees, our guests, our neighbors. Thank you.

How You Can Help:

The American Red Cross and the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City are accepting donations to assist with Hurricane Relief. Contributing to these causes will not only provide immediate aid needs, such as clean water, food, and hygiene supplies, but it will also help with the long-term relief and restoration efforts.
