Free Storage for Sandy Victims; Times Square Art Project

NEW YORK CITY?With dozens of buildings uninhabitable post-Sandy, many New Yorkers are searching for temp housing or new apartments altogether. To ease the move and transition, Tuck-it-Away Self Storage is offering one free month of storage to people affected by hurricane Sandy. The company is also throwing in free pick-up, moving, and boxes, with no commitment. Downside: only 25 portable units have been set aside, and they are available by application on a first come, first served basis. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]

MIDTOWN?To raise money and support for "Times Square Art Square," which aims to turn Times Square's electronic ads into artworks for one month per year, the group behind the project is hosting a sketch-athon this weekend at Alley NYC. One hundred artists will each create 100 different portraits for $10 a pop to raise $100,000, with 10 percent of the proceeds going toward Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]
