I'm very pleased President Obama finally visited New York, especially Far Rockaway Queens NY. The Rockaway's seems so far away from the City (but it's not, not really) that it took a while before anyone paid any attention at all to the destruction there.
A friend gave me a mini tour of her hood, and I have to say it was not a pleasant one. I don't know how to begin to describe the devastation. But one of the major aspects that stood out in my mind is the amount of sand Hurricane Sandy left. It seems to me that when the sea arose, it brought the sand about three blocks inland, and left a few feet of sand in the homes and mountains of sand in the streets. It is as though the Rockaway Beach wanted to relocated itself...
...Which leave me with many questions. One of them being, if the Rockaway's is rebuilt, will the ocean keep pushing back?
