Late Monday night our dear friend Nick Wachtel was in a bike accident somewhere in Manhattan. He was brought to the ICU at Harlem Hospital and has been recovering here since. Details are unclear since Nick has been unable to speak. He is in critical yet stable condition, sedated with a broken jaw and is relying on a ventilator to breathe.

We know very little about the accident and are in contact with the NYPD to better understand what happened. We will update this page with more information as it we receive it.

As his situation develops we have taken the initiative to create a GoFundMe to help cover any expenses. This includes his medical bills, rent and all other costs that will be incurred. All funds will go directly towards his hospital bills and to his immediate family.

If you can support in anyway please donate here. And feel free to share this page however and with whomever you feel would like to support or follow his situation. 

Or if you'd like to visit Nick, he is currently at the Harlem Hospital Center, 506 Lenox Ave, ICU (6th floor).

So much to be thankful for today! Nick is out of the hospital and headed to North Carolina to spend some time with his family for a bit. He had the wires removed from his jaw this week too. Thanks to everyone for your continued support of Nick and his family!!!!

Hi everyone! Nick is making fantastic progress since moving to Bellevue. His next big steps are getting the wires out of his mouth, hopefully the week of Thanksgiving, and also going home! Hopefully this all happens very fast. Also, he's back on his phone so please send him love and support as he gets through this final time in the hospital! XO to you all.

Hi everyone! We wanted to let you all know that today Nick moved to Bellevue Hospital for inpatient rehabilitation, where he can get more focused care towards his recovery and get home faster!!!

If you would like to visit, he's on the 6th Floor, West Wing (462 1st Avenue). The visiting hours are 9am - 9pm.

He's making tremendous progress each day and he couldn't do it without his support network both near and far. So thank you to everyone for all that you've done for Nick... it's truly appreciated.

A quick note to keep all of you who have donated up-to-date.

Yesterday marked Nick’s second week in the ICU. He is still in the same bed on the same floor, but continues to show promising signs of recovery. Most recently he received surgery for his broken jaw. He is able to breathe on his own without the ventilator and is much less reliant on the sedatives. Although he is still unable to speak, he is able to open his eyes and recognizes his friends and family, communicating through his eyes, head and hands. The doctors are encouraged by the speed of his recovery.

Thanks again to anyone and everyone who has donated and/or helped spread the word about this fund. We still have $10,000 to raise in order to reach our goal of $50,000, so any help promoting this fund is much appreciated.

With love.

EDIT: Nick was moved from the ICU earlier today and now has a roommate. You can still visit him at the Hospital in Harlem if you wish. Check in at the front desk and they will give you his new room number. Visiting hours are: 8am - 9pm.
