'Superstorm' Sandy: Your stories
Christmas in Disaster
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
It was quiet, too quiet. Today I was in Long Beach, NY, a community near New York CIty that was heavily damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
Six weeks ago Long Beach was a busy & hip area of NY's Long Island. Its proximity to NYC is perfect for those who want to be close to the city but feel a million miles away.
With a huge surfing community & gorgeous miles of beach, this neighborhood will thrive again, I'm sure.
These photos are a reminder of how precious our Earth & our lives can be. Cherish every day & Have a very Happy Holiday Season!
