After Sandy: Rumson, Fair Haven Scene; Eateries, Stores Open

Acme, Tavolo, Fair Winds, Lollies in Fair Haven open

The lights weren't on, but, in spite of Sandy, they were cooking up a storm and brewing coffee all day yesterday and today at Tavolo Pronto in Fair Haven.

Owners said that though they still have no electricity, cooking conditions are workable with gas and the coffee is on. Sandwiches, pizzas and pasta dishes are all being prepared and lots of people piled in.

There is, however, no bread, so sandwiches are only available in wraps. No one seemed to mind the fresh substitute, though, as many ordered and cooks served up hot sandwiches and a host of other wholesome goods.

Fair Winds Deli is also open and cooking on gas until 3 p.m.

The Acme is open and the lights are on and working off a high powered generator, but shelves are becoming more and more depleted. This afternoon it looked like a delivery was made and there were plenty of paper towels in the parking lot headed inside, though.

On Halloween, kids were out posting a sign to let passersby know that Lollies is open and trying to keep a piece of Halloween alive, even though it was postponed in NJ.

In Rumson, most long, tree-lined driveways to estates are no longer tree-lined and power lines and trees are down all over town, as in Fair Haven.

The scene along the Navesink River in both towns is serene, yet tousled.

Most in the area area are still without electricity.

Take a look at the photos in the above gallery for a glimpse into the area in Sandy's aftermath. Upload your own photos and let us know how you're doing. Stay safe!

Jeffrey Sachs, sometimes described as the world's most famous economist, told me he thought adding half a trillion dollars on to http://www.outletcoachstoday.com the deficit without a plan http://www.coachoutletod.com was "rather shocking". He did not feel Obama's http://www.coachs-outletcar.com administration was dealing with the http://www.coachoutletdp.com fundamental problems of a deeply unequal and http://www.coachoutletwo.com under-invested economy, which had exported too http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com many jobs abroad."This is not http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net a country in good shape. We have 15% http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org of the population in poverty, we have one http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net in six or one in seven http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com on food stamps, we have http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com about half of our households within at least twice the http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com poverty line or below, meaning http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org that we have a staggering share http://www.coachoutletrf.com of America that is financially http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com struggling right now."Certainly, it is that sense http://www.coachoutletuser.net of a struggling middle class that has dogged Obama's campaign and given Romney some of his best lines.
