Viewed from the vantage point of 106-20 Shore Front Parkway, these photos show Rockaway beach’s changing face before, during and after Hurricane Sandy.
Before: A sunny day at the beach and all is beautiful.
During: Tuesday morning of Oct 30th, 2012, Sandy has already come ashore, leaving roiling waves and a smashed boardwalk in her wake. The bare concrete supports are now visible.
After: It is March 16, 2013, and major repairs are underway to prepare for the summer. Photos by Guy Nevirs.
