Much like most of the Eastern Seaboard, some horrible wench called Sandy left our NYC office out of commission so we bring this to you via our L.A. team. Our thoughts are with our friends and readers in Sandy's path, we hope you're all safe and sound. Thanks to your tweets, Instagrams and Facebooking, we've been getting an inside glimpse at what's going down over there and it looks completely insane and scary. People in L.A. bust out sweatpants and have phone sessions with therapists if it drizzles here so just know you guys are really brave and strong. With that, we're putting your diligent field reporting to use; from the preparations to the aftermath and how resilient New Yorkers have been coping, here's an Instagram roundup of NYC through Hurricane Sandy. We're thinking of all those affected -- stay safe!!
