It’s freezing cold in New York City, but the winter weather is not stopping us from dreaming about summer, a time when bergamot is blooming, bees are buzzing, and paletas are plentiful on the High Line.

Alas, we were saddened to hear that the Red Hook headquarters of La Newyorkina, one of our beloved High Line food vendors, were devastated by severe flooding during Hurricane Sandy.

Chef/owner Fany Gerson wants to rebuild the kitchen equipment, but she needs help. Follow us after the jump to learn more and watch her Kickstarter video.
