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.
Only a chimney remains from a house that was engulfed in flames from a boiler explosion, West Babylon, Long Island
The house next to the blaze
A common sight on the Long Island shore: boarded up homes, usually with mobile dumpsters parked out front
Half of the highway outside of Jones Beach, Long Island remains covered in sand along sections
The beach has narrowed in sections and subsumed pieces of infrastructure
