Destruction at One Girl Cookies in New York City. (Joel Branson)

Despite the optimistic outlook that the urgent need to rebuild after Hurricane Sandy will result in the creation of jobs, small businesses in New York have taken a huge hit. Storefronts and bars were flooded, restaurant equipment destroyed, and many business owners remain in the dark about whether or not they will even be able to reopen.

New York City small business owners Dawn Casale, and Sherry Delamarter join us to share the impact Sandy has had on their livelihoods, and what steps they are taking to move forward.

Love the Seahorse and Sherry and the families she employs...and it is a big network of family and friends who support Sherry. Rachel and I had a bunch of the Seahorse crowd over the house on Tuesday night and the only thing to do was get drunk and talk about what shoes they could wear cleaning up the Seahorse the next day... (because they would have to be thrown out afterwards)
