    I am one of those unfortunate people who live downtown and have no power, water, cell or land phone lines, internet, etc. I am at work now in the Rockefeller Center Area. Will the concert be re-broadcast so we can view when our power returns? Will there be any studio audience during the broadcast? After a 5 days of HELL, it would be a wonderful treat to be able to see the concert! Is there anything I can do to help?

    My thoughts go out to all those who are in much worse shape than I am – We take so much for granted – I know I shouldn’t be so upset about the inconvenience of MY situation, when there is so much devastation around!

    Stay safe!
