Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

Our Disaster Staff as Fine Art

If you’ve been on a disaster recovery project, you’ve met Dakotah West, Seth Shapiro, and Carol Chang. Whether working at the Office of Emergency Management days after the storm hit, organizing buses of volunteers from City Hall, or running our muck out operation from various parking lots in the Rockaways, they’ve been working hard since November. Which is why sometimes they need to take a break and blow off some steam. Last week they had a photoshoot on our new base, recreating famous pictures using our disaster tools. Which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments: 

Washington Crossing the Delaware:

American Gothic:

The Birth of Venus

The Creation of Adam:
