Subject: Jersey shore video–Sandy+3months

3 months ago, Sandy rocked our lives.

This essay is a  moving reflection on the character of the Jersey shore and the prospects for restoration.  People who are committed, or not…  A recognition that it will not be the same.  A hope that it will not become “anyplace USA”.

“On paper it does not make any sense, but in our hearts we know it does.”
