Congratulatons on the Sandy commemorative issue of THE WAVE. It was the perfect tribute to the devastation we suffered and to the resilience we displayed in the twelve months since that awful day last year. Your staff captured the heart and soul of our amazing community, both in words and in photographs.
This instantly collectible paper deservedly flew off the newsstands (take it from someone who tried to hoard extra copies over the weekend; no such luck).
Thanks, too, for resisting the urge to charge a premium for the special edition. You would have been justified in doing so, but your decision not to was a welcome service to the neighborhood.
I've seen a great deal of post-Sandy coverage in the local media this week -- but none more well executed or up close and personal than yours. THE WAVE once again cemented its role as the face and voice of the Rockaways.
