I ♥ NY T-Shirt Flooded For Sandy

After the storm, Milton Glaser’s iconic I ♥ NY logo has been flooded as a way of raising money for Sandy relief efforts. The shirts were created by New York based artist and designer Sebastien Errazuriz. They cost $40 and are available at  Grey Area. All proceeds go directly to Hurricane Sandy programs.

I Still Love NY Hurricane Sandy Relief

“Sebastien Errazuriz’s studio was paralyzed after the hurricane. Unable to work and tired of watching the horrible disaster unfold on the news, Errazuriz decided to design something to help raise much-needed relief funds. This idea occurred to him after seeing the water line marked on the walls of the flooded galleries in New York’s Chelsea art district.”

Get Well Soon, Staten Island

The effects of Hurricane Sandy are still being felt across the tri-state area. Photographer Giles Clarke, a British expat and good friend of Tea & Sympathy, has been documenting the extent of the devastation on Staten Island. His moving pictures show how people need to remain strong and look out for one another. Our thoughts are with everyone who didn’t make it through the storm as easily as us.

“What I saw in Staten Island a couple of days ago will never leave me. I was in areas that had seen no responders or emergency services and local residents were going about the business of clearing up and dealing with the shock.”

“I hope my pictures convey the terrible scale of the storm but also have a beauty that might signify the coming together of the human spirit in this very difficult time.”

How high the waters rose.

 

There are many ways to contribute to the clear up effort. For more information go here.

Some NY Sandy Images

Sean went for a walk around town with his camera yesterday. Crazy, eery, and yet still almost moving – we never thought we’d see New York City like this.

14th St & 8th Ave. Like a dolls house or something from a silent movie.

These striking images were captured looking up 7th Avenue. The light you can see in the distance is Times Square.
