The City That Never Sleeps...Builds?


In the midst of the midtown tourist traps and turbulent rat race, stands the foundation for homes (and hope) literally being built around the clock. Beginning Monday, September 26, Rockefeller Plaza will become "Humanity Plaza" for 5 days and is funded by Habitat For Humanity via millions raised specifically for this cause. The new homes will benefit selected families displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

The project will be implemented over the next 2 months. NBC News "Today", Habitat for Humanity International and Warner Music Group are joining forces to help the Gulf Coast in the heart of Gotham City. Participating artists from Warner Music Group’s Atlantic and Warner Bros.Records include Josh Groban, Goo Goo Dolls, Tracy Chapman, T.I., Big &Rich, Randy Newman, Ryan Cabrera, Yolanda Adams and many others...

While this is a valuable effort that is both PR worthy and advantageous for all participants involved, perhaps we should start by applying NYC’s social service resources towards our own homeless who are being overlooked in Katrina's Shadow.
