Photos around Adafruit Manhattan area after #sandy
Here are some photos around Adafruit Manhattan area after #sandy. We have two locations we are working from since we’re in the middle of a move, both are without power or internet (we have 2 Wi-Fi hotspots, one works but not all the time now).
Everything in Manhattan from 39th street down does not have power due to an explosion at 14th according to what we were told. Both our locations are safe and secure, all the Adafruit staff is home with friends and family. We will continue to update on the blog, Twitter and Google+ the best we can.
For those sending in your support, placing orders and good thoughts, thank you!

Update: 3:56pm 10/30/2012 – still no power or net for Adafruit FiDi or SoHo. We are told the NYSE will be open on Weds. and there will be limited train service starting at 5pm tonight. We will continue to post updates.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
