Reputation-mindful in NYC

I was listening to NPR just now while working and heard a cool story that made me think about how New Yorkers are definitely reputation-mindful and good solid citizens. A resident of Dumbo, an area in Brooklyn near the water (and near me), was describing how he was walking down the street this morning to take in the devastation of super-storm Hurricane Sandy. The Brooklyn waterfront was pretty devastated with water lines still visible on store windows. He saw a few products from the nearby Brookstone floating by. He picked them up and threw them back in the smashed window of Brookstone — reverse looting! Made me feel good knowing my fellow Brooklynites do the right thing and keep NYC’s reputation uppermost in their minds.
