How has hurricane Sandy affected the East Coast?
Celebrities have been taking shelter in posh uptown hotels after being displaced from their homes due to Superstorm Sandy’s destruction.

While most of downtown New York City remains powerless, Hollywood’s A-listers are making themselves home in the city’s most famous hotels like the Mark Hotel, The Carlyle, and the Lowell.

So where have they found shelter from the storm?

Alec Baldwin and new wife Hilaria escaped to the ultra chic Lowell Hotel after their SoHo apartment lost power. Joining them at the uptown hotel is movie magnate Harvey Weinstein and Marchesa designer wife Georgina Chapman.

Sarah Jessica Parkerwas spotted at the Plaza Athenee, according to the NY Post. Her West Village home is among the millions that went without power due to the powerful storm.

The Mark has become a veritable who’s who of hurricane refugees. Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiberwere spotted checking into the hotel with their sons, Sasha and Samuel, late on Tuesday evening.

Helena Christensen, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Russell Crowe, Marc Jacobs, and Kelly Ripa were also among the famous faces spotted at the luxurious east side hotel.

Also at The Mark, Emma Stone and Jonah Hill were doing their best to avoid cabin fever by sipping on cocktails in the hotel’s lobby bar.

The Carlyle is a home away from home for lovebirds Mary Kate Olsen and beau Olivier Sarkozy. Models Lily Donaldson and Karlie Kloss are also staying at the Upper East Side landmark.

Other celebrities, including Real Housewives of New Jersey reality stars Joe and Melissa Gorga, rode out the storm in their home with the help of a generator.

More than 8.2 million homes and businesses were without power due to superstore Sandy on Wednesday.
