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!

-Ladyada and the Adafruit team


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.


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

  1. Glad to hear you’re all OK. Quick recovery to NYC!
    Almost feel guilty that upstate got off so easily, but there are still areas up here that haven’t even been able to start rebuilding from Irene.

  2. Wow, what a mess! I’m glad everyone’s OK and you’re back on-line.
