One year ago, Hurricane Sandy shook up the Rockaways, destroying Rockaway Beach’s renowned boardwalk and devastating the area. But the spirit of the Rockaways was not broken and the community is recovering, one step at a time. New York Natives captured the progress being made there, comparing when we first visited the Rockaways right after Sandy hit to when we revisited the site days ago. Come along with us, “hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach”, and see how the community is working its way back to normalcy.
