Guyon Rescue trailer

December 15th, 2014

This LoBaido-painted trailer is (or at least was) the main center of operations of Guyon Rescue, a grassroots relief organization that grew out of two people showing up here in Oakwood Beach after Hurricane Sandy to distribute donated items to the community. The group became a neighborhood fixture in the months following the storm, but some neighbors have now grown tired of the trailer still being parked here after all this time. Two women who live across the street were complaining to me about this "eyesore" quite bitterly — but I guess it's a good sign of the neighborhood's recovery that people's lives are stable and settled enough for something like an ugly trailer sitting across the street to be worth worrying about.
