A little over a week ago, the coast of New York and New Jersey was mercilessly pummeled by a hurricane named Sandy. The Jersey Shore, where I was born (in Point Pleasant Hospital) and one of my favorite places in NYC, Rockaway Beach, were among the areas hit hard. Very hard. I went to the Rockaways to help my friend with her apartment and took photos along the way – the devastation is unimaginable.
At the very least, people are without power; so many houses were flooded, pushed off their foundations, or completely destroyed by the invading ocean. Huge chunks of the Boardwalk were washed up the streets.
I have created full galleries of my photos on flickr. If you are able, please help however you can – by volunteering or donating. Thank you.
