Superstorm Sandy changed the face of Brooklyn, but borough residents have bounced back in the year since, clearing debris, repairing damage and rebuilding stronger than ever. We went back through our archives to find images from the storm-scarred days after the deluge, and revisited those people and places, to see how they are doing one year later.
This is not quite a before-and-after study. It is more of an after and a one-year-after, and the results are decidedly mixed. Some landmarks, houses, and neighborhood businesses, have been built back more solid than before. But many other places remain under construction or half-fixed but stalled, and some remain desolate.
Take a look at what we found.
