Hurricane Sandy Update - November 5, 2012


Dear YSC Constituents, Friends, and Partners -

The building in which YSC's headquarters is located, at 61 Broadway in downtown Manhattan, re-opened briefly on Monday, November 5, but without heat or phone service. And, we've just learned from the building's management that there will be no heat in the building for the remainder of the week.

Therefore, YSC’s New York office will be closed this week (Nov 5-9th) and, unless the conditions in our office change, the staff in our New York office will be working from home the rest of the week and available via email and their cell phones.

The main YSC phone number is also down as a result of the storm, and we do not have information on when it will be up again. We are deeply sorry for any frustration this might have caused and we will post an update as more of the systems come online.

If you need to reach someone immediately – please email any of the staff below:
