During this challenging time, its more important than ever to stay connected and embrace the spirit of community. One of the best things about working at Epstein (if we do say so ourselves), is our staff and the sense of togetherness we have across the company.

As we are settling into our new working environments, we wanted to offer a fun way to share moments with each other and celebrate the strength of the Epstein family. Therefore, in an effort to stay connected, we created a friendly competition, Shelter in Place Shots." Each week, a new topic is selected; our employees are then asked to take and share a photo correlating to that theme.

To kick things off, we asked everyone to post a picture of what they see outside their "office" window for the best work from home view. After some rather intense voting, the five finalists were determined:

"City in the Woods" by Renata Pajerska

"Empty East Village" by Patrick Wyszynski
"Room With a View" by Brian Bryce

"What You Talkin' Bout Willis" by Hannah Perl

"Yep, That's a Boat!" by Laura Rebbe

The picture that received the most votes was "Empty East Village," submitted by Patrick Wyszynski, Design Professional, from our New York office. Congratulations, Patrick!

"Thank you so much for the votes, and thank you to Epstein for creating a fun series that brings us together, because, more important than winning, was seeing everyones photos and keeping a sense of closer knit community with each other during these trying times," Patrick said. "I really enjoyed seeing everyones photos and titles, and Im looking forward to seeing more fun photos from our community!"

Thank you to everyone who participated! Stay tuned for our next challenge...
