long beach, New York
This iReport is part of an assignment:
Hurricane season 2013
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
This year, I have been reporting on one of my favorite beaches in NY, Long Beach in Long Island. A 40 minute drive from the island of Manhattan.
I am excited to say that after much devastation, the community of Long Beach is thriving!! Businesses are open! There are lots of happy people playing in the ocean, biking on the beautiful new boardwalk & playing frisbee, eating ice cream, smiling!!
Although there is still work to be done here in Long Beach, the upswing is full gear.
The very last shot I have uploaded is a short video. On one side you will see new life with music & food vendors. On the other, you will see some of what is still left to rebuild.
Thank you & Enjoy the rest of your Summer.
