Sandy’s Impact Felt Across NY and the Eastern Seaboard

As many of you know, Birchbox HQ is based in Manhattan. Last night, as Hurricane Sandy barreled over us, record-breaking floods and power outages took over much of the city, leaving all of lower Manhattan and parts of the outer boroughs without electricity. This morning, we’re still taking stock of the damage. Currently, our office is closed and many of our staffers are without power. We’ll be updating our Facebook and Twitter with service updates, but in the meantime we all appreciate your thoughts and patience.

Despite the destruction and the chaos, Sandy is a good reminder of why we love New York so much—from the stories of NYU hospital staff carrying sick babies down nine flights of stairs and brave first responders to these eerily beautiful photos of a submerged Jane’s Carousel. A big thank you to the NYPD, the FDNY, emergency shelter volunteers, and everyone else who is working through the storm. They are all amazing.
