Hurricane Sandy pummeled the East Coast, triggering a storm surge that inundated the West Side as far east as 10th Avenue and as far north as West 46th Street. As the Hudson’s waters barreled inland, they did not spare Hudson River Park, plants were uprooted, paving stones ripped up, and soil dredged from the lawns and flowerbeds. When the waters quickly receded, they carried back refuse and debris from the damaged city, scattering it throughout Hudson River Park.

Like much of lower Manhattan, Hudson River Park is hurting after Sandy, and can use your help to repair the damage.
