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.


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.

  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.
