One year after Sandy, many communities along New Jersey’s coast still have a long way to go to repair their damages.
With help from our friends at Jersey Shore Hurricane News, we recently asked readers and residents to tell us which towns and neighborhoods they think deserve particular attention as the recovery continues. Here are some of the most notable responses.
9. Sea Bright
A year after Sandy, 300-400 of the town's 1,400 people still aren't back in their homes. And despite popular perception, they’re not all summer homes. Unlike in southern parts of the Jersey Shore, more than half of the borough’s residents live there year-round. Along with neighboring Highlands, Sea Bright recently embarked on a long-term process to reinvent itself and make the borough more sustainable and resilient to future storms.
