    Sandy: A Long Road to Recovery for NYC's South Street Seaport

     

    A month after Hurricane Sandy crippled New York, most of Manhattan has returned to their normal lives. But the city's South Street Seaport remains a painful reminder of the damage and destruction caused by the superstorm.

     

    The once bustling waterfront neighborhood now resembles some sort of post-apocalyptic scene from a film. The chatter and laughter that formerly filled the streets has been replaced by the constant groan of generators. Retail shops like J.Crew, Abercrombie & Fitch, and The Body Shop have been destroyed, shuttered and abandoned. And like giant worms eating their way through an apple, water extraction tubes weave in and out of blacked-out skyscrapers.
