The Ice Theatre of New York, located at Chelsea Piers, lost their offices. The Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers also faced much damage and loss. Bill Sword, the husband of Martha Sword, a longtime supporter of the Ice Theatre of New York was killed in the storm after a tree fell on him in his backyard in Princeton, New Jersey.
Ice Theatre of New York's founder, Moira North, estimated that the water came up four feet high in their office. The company lost everything except their computers which were moved to higher ground before the storm. New office space was needed.
Just one week before Hurricane Sandy came to New York City, the Ice Theatre of New York held a gala celebration that honored ice skating show legend Richard Dwyer. The above photo shows the Olympic Figure Skating Champion Dorothy Hamill and Richard Dwyer skating together at the gala.
Donations are being accepted to help Ice Theatre of New York rebuild.
