Hurricane Sandy whipped through New York on Monday, doing a number on all the boroughs, leaving large sections of the city flooded and without power. Undercurrent HQ, located in Soho, was included in the mess. Still without electricity, the office has been shut down all week. But, along with much of digital NYC, the work continues.
Like any group of highly connected individuals, Undercurrent exists wherever and whenever we get together – physically or digitally. Thankfully, all of us made it through the storm and now we’re back to work: meeting in homes and coffee shops, standing at kitchen counters and collaborating around coffee tables. We’re staying connected, we’re sharing, and we’re doing what we do best. Even though our office is out of commission, we most certainly are not.
Inspired by this post from our friends at Percolate, here’s some photos of the different places where UCers have set up shop.
