Hilton Long Island/Huntington GM Ellen Ruane knows hospitality. Her hurricane-prep shopping included $500 worth of games to help displaced families like Massapequa's Nick, Allie, and Ashley Bigilin stay occupied. We've got money on Ashley for this round of Trivial Pursuit Disney Edition.
Dara Grunberg, Hilton Long Island/Huntington, October 2012
Ellen didn't forget the pups (forget which sibling Mom loves best; everyone know the dog is her favorite). She stocked up on Wee-Wee Pads for guests like Woodbury's Cooper (with his pal Dara Grunberg).
Jim Wacht and Joel Herskowitz at 600 Madison on Nov. 5, 2012
Lee & Associates prez Jim Wacht and Peter Braus (that's COO Joel Herskowitz standing in for Peter this morning, who's still upstate where he took shelter from the storm) have a proposal for their compatriots. The pair will match contributions (up to $5,000) from their brokers, employees, customers, and vendors to the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City. The company has also helped the people close to them, letting lawyer Adam Leitman Bailey and 10 employees work in L&A's office at Madison and 58th until the law firm's 120 Broadway building gets power back. Jim tells us the staffs shared lunch on Friday and went around the room talking about what they do. It's official: Sandy has made NYC go soft—in a good way.
