Here's Where New York's 1 Percent Sought Refuge After Hurricane Sandy



Donald Trump has taken a rare step down from his political soap box to do some good for Hurricane Sandy survivors.

On Tuesday afternoon, Trump opened the atrium of his luxury Trump Hotel & Tower to hundreds of refugees, serving up free coffee and food throughout the day.

He Tweeted out the news around 1 p.m., and spread the word during an interview on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

"I have a staff that's terrific and I have a building that was in great shape and has all sorts of equipment where it can keep going," he told Fallon. "We invited the public in and we took care of the people and I'm very happy about that."

Like each state blasted by Sandy, there are plenty of free shelters available for evacuees. But it's nice to know there's somewhere to go for people looking for something more plush than a seat at an elementary school lunch table.
