Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath struck a large blow to local Lower East Side businesses, and we would like to do our part to help revitalize commerce. For the next week, we are donating 100% of our ad inventory to local enterprises that need a little extra juice to make it through. For the rest of November, we’ll donate 75% of our ad inventory to local businesses.

So, what does this mean?

If you have a business located in the Lower East Side, East Village or any adjoining areas affected by Hurricane Sandy, send an email to advertising@boweryboogie.com.

In the email, please include:

  • the name of your business
  • your business address
  • the banner(s) you’d like us to run. It can be a 728×90, a 300×250, or both
  • the link to the page that you’d like people to visit

We reserve the right to decline on a case by case basis, but our goal is to help. All approved businesses will receive equal rotation.
