More Stats from New York Magazine

Another set of interesting stats from New York Magazine, though less scary than Monday's-- this, in fact, is rather heart-warming:

Citymeals on Wheels donations:

October 15, 2008:
603 donations
For a total of $49,201
Dow dropped 733 that day, closing at 8,577

October 15, 2007:
314 donations
For a total of $22,760
Down dropped 108 that day, closing at 13,984

It's good to know that some New Yorkers are more inspired to give when times get tough!
