This collection consists largely of Newspapers and publications directly following Hurricane Sandy. The publications are from local neighborhoods, newspapers that serve all of New York, and press from Unions, CUNY and from Brooklyn College itself. There is also information on Sandy Relief efforts. Along with all of this information, you will find a coin found in Rockaway and a can of water produced by Anheuser-Busch. After the hurricane hit, the company decided to develop drinking water in their “beer” cans to donate to needy neighborhoods and Red Cross Relief members. Over One million cans were produced.
