A trip to post-Hurricane Sandy Rockaways

Filed under: disasters,Global Warming — louisproyect @ 7:45 pm


  1. i don’t have a Tee Vee so this is my first view of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Scenes of the wealthier homes reminds me of the hillsides in Malibu and Santa Monica, CA after every Fire ~ UP IN SMOKE every year.
    And as a serious Birder i appreciated the Salt Marsh scenes BRing Back the Salt Marshes and take vollyball somewhere else….

    Sorry ’bout your basement Louis ~ i suspect that artists who live and work in the area have lost their portfolios in this tragedy ~ my heart goes out to them too

  2. The one thing I used to hear when Katrina hit New Orleans was about “man, how come ‘those’ people don’t move from there. They got no common sense. It’s gonna flood! It’s their fault.” This time around I have not heard this in the media. I am glad, but I wonder what change this time around.

  3. Very good report, Louis. What your nice photography showed was that on a sunny day, even if cold, the Rockaways are a very beautiful environment. That call of the beach life is hard to resist. If I could afford it I would certainly live in such an environment even though I know full well it is a completely ephemeral place, merely being the momentary boundary between land that is destined to be consumed, and the sea relentlessly devouring it.
