I’m sure all of you have heard and know about the destruction that hurricane Sandy caused about 3 weeks ago and how much people have pulled together to help one another and really be thankful for the simple things that life offers like kindness and love for one another.
In a place like New York in the hustle and bustle of the city where it seems nobody has time to help or even smile as people pass by. It was incredible to see all the articles and photos about people offering their electricity to charge phones, or having people stay with them until their electricity was back up.
I think it’s possible out of disaster there is a bright side. I think it’s wonderful to see people working together to help eachother and look out for one another in such a devastating time like this.
You often wonder what you would do when something this devastating happens, how would you deal with not having access to your email or Facebook, or with out electricity and food for that long! I can’t imagine losing animals and all your sentimental belongings.
Speaking about sentimental belongings, about two weeks ago I received an email from an artist in Brooklyn about his studio being destroyed by Sandy, being in the creative community this fellow artist’s story really hit home.
Leon Reid IV (pronounced “The Fourth”) is an artist from Brookly, NY. He is an artist out of Brooklyn and his studio has been 90% damaged or destroyed.
Here’s Leon’s story:
We here in New York City have suffered a natural disaster unseen in this city’s history. Hurricane Sandy tore most of our coastline to bits. That which took decades to build was dismantled in hours. My studio was a victim of this disaster along with many other artists spaces at 99 Commercial Street in Brooklyn.
Our studio compound is located directly on the Newtown Creek. A serene -but polluted- body of water separating Brooklyn from Queens. The view from the creek offers a spectacualar view of Manhattan and gives the sense that one is in the city but also removed from it. Proof of its magic: I met my wife Caroline at the studio compound for the first time in 2007, I showed her the view on the creek, in 2012 we are now married with a child.
But beauty and terror are family. The Newtown Creek flooded often, never getting more than a couple of feet at the back end of the compound. My studio usually wasn’t affected because it is located about 60 yards uphill from the creek. There were of course precautions that we all took when heavy rains came, such as placing all our equipment on the table, sealing our doors and windows etc. Hurricane Sandy laughed at all of our precautions.
My studio absorbed 4.5 feet of water. With only 8 feet of ceiling height you get the idea -it looked like a fish tank in there. The real terror of the situation came in realizing that this is not rain water that flooded our studios, this is Eau D’ Newtown Creek and is not what you would call “drinking water”.

There are so many product lines out there, to be honest even for a hairdresser it’s overwhelming, I can’t imagine what it must be like for clients. I wanted to start a monthly addiction to help narrow down what I think is amazing to make investing in your hair a little easier, and being a…

Recently it’s dawned on me that for being a person that is so passionate about fashion, I’m not that fashionable or even know all the big designer brands in fashion. Last year during my Project Runway hiatus I thought I had a major epiphany, I thought maybe I don’t belong in fashion, I don’t have the…
