Post-Sandy: Update from the Staten Island Waterfront
For the Staten Island community—one of the hardest hit in Superstorm Sandy—recovery comes in small steps. The island's marine sector has fared no differently. After Folly, a 39-foot aluminum pilothouse sloop owned by John and Kerry Pears, was flung two boatyards away, a recovery crane dismasted it during lifting. Amid the confusion, the couple filed this report about the island's state of affairs since the storm struck the U.S. East Coast on October 29, 2012.
