    It's our first day back in the office since the storm hit, and boy, does it feel good. We've been Google-hanging, Skyping, and G-chatting with fellow R29ers for the past seven days — not only to make sure our second family is A-okay, but also to bring you fresh, daily content despite Sandy's devastating aftermath. Whether it was lending a bed and offering a warm shower to a stranded staffer or coming together with a Refinery29 blood drive in Williamsburg, we've come through this with an updated, stronger definition of teamwork.

    To see how the hurricane impacted other Big Apple dwellers, we sent out photographer Atisha Patterson to document the destruction, and also capture the community’s efforts to help each other out and move forward. And, while we're amped to all be in the same space together, we understand that not all New Yorkers have power, homes, or even fresh food or water yet. So, we hope our #Sandy slideshow will inspire you to be a real-life hero. We suggest bookmarking this post to help keep that feeling of togetherness strong, long after the disaster is gone.
