Seaside Heights after Hurricane Sandy

In historic places, NYC Today on November 1, 2012 at 2:41 pm

As we all find our way and move forward after the incredible storm that hit the mid-atlantic coast, I find that a moment of reflection to what once was and to what will be is appropriate.  As I mentioned in my July posting “The Merry-Go-Round”, I spent many a happy day at a boardwalk amusement park in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

During the surge of Hurricane Sandy, this section along the Jersey Shore was one of many that has transformed from a thriving summer resort to a pile of rubble.

One has to stand in awe to the power nature truly has.

As painful as it may be to see the destruction of places and things we love, it helps put into perspective what things we really cherish:  family, friends and memories.

And as we rebuild here in NYC, Long Island and New Jersey, we should keep the force of nature in mind to make sounder decisions.  Change what once was so that the future will be stronger and brighter-allowing nature the space it needs to eb and flow.

I wish everyone a safe recovery.

Until next time.
