On Saturday, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein volunteered in the Hurricane Sandy-devestated Rockaways. And, yesterday, Madonna visited the Queens beach community.
Museum of Modern Art curator Klaus Biesenbach, who has a home there, has been rallying people (including celebrities) to help with relief and volunteer efforts at Aid for Rockaway. He only returned to the Rockaways last week—"my first night in rockaway post sandy.....very dark out here...."— and excitedly noted that stores were re-opening yesterday. He was with Madonna yesterday and later Tweeted, "thanks to madonna for volunteering and keeping the hopes up in the rockaways today!"
Over a week ago, Madonna included her name on a letter from New York artists to Mayor Bloomberg, which notes, "Demographically, it is very diverse and not a privileged area. In recent years, the Rockaways became an incredible inspiration and haven for the artists and creative community of New York. As the Rockaways are, at their best, a melting pot between the local community and the creative energies of the city, it is a location where New York is anticipating and creating the images and dreams we all live on."
The signers, who include Marina Abramovic, Matthew Barney, Lady Gaga, James Franco, Spike Jonze, Padma Lakshmi, Patti Smith, Rufus Wainwright, and many others, also tell Bloomberg they "support the city in your amazing, monumental efforts in all boroughs to save our city and to encourage the creative communities in New York to invent exemplary ways of helping our neighbors and fellow New Yorkers!"
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were also spotted helping in the Rockaways over the weekend. Knicks star Amare Stoudemire also volunteered on Saturday.

Open Letter to Encourage Mutual Citizen Support
New York City Artists Unite to Support the Rockaways and the Flooded Areasof New York City

Dear Mayor Bloomberg,

The Rockaways geographically, as you know, are the area that is breakingthe waves between the Atlantic Ocean and JFK Airport and New York City ingeneral. Demographically, it is very diverse and not a privileged area.

In recent years, the Rockaways became an incredible inspiration and havenfor the artists and creative community of New York. As the Rockaways are,at their best, a melting pot between the local community and the creativeenergies of the city, it is a location where New York is anticipating andcreating the images and dreams we all live on.

Hurricane Sandy completely devastated the peninsula, and a couple of daysafter the storm, families with children are still standing next to theirdestroyed and ruined houses trying to keep warm without food, water,electricity, heat, or internet.

The artistic community is sending you this letter to support the city inyour amazing, monumental efforts in all boroughs to save our city and toencourage the creative communities in New York to invent exemplary ways ofhelping our neighbors and fellow New Yorkers!

Respectfully yours,

Marina Abramovic
