Hurricane Sandy damage on Long Island (photos)

During my Christmas vacation back to New York, I knew I would be encountering some residual storm damage from the mother-of-all storms that blew over Long Island and much of the region just two months ago. Yet, I wasn’t entirely sure just how bad it would be.

Here are some of the more dramatic photos I collected.
