Today is the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. As the Times editorial today mentions, it's "time to heal and renew." NYC is trying to do its part. Various city restaurants working with Share our Strength to donate a part of tonight's sales to rebuilding efforts (the Shake Shack is included). And Brooklynite Lori Baker and Jersey Cityzen Eric Harvey Brown have created a book, Signs of Life, a collection of photographs of signs made after Hurricane Katrina. The photographs were found on Flickr, and the photographers donated them to be used in the book. The book's profits are going to Common Ground Relief and Hands on Network.
Complete Hurricane Katrina anniversary coverage from the Times-Picayune and NY Times.
