      My dad lives there. I visited a few times this summer. The place was a ghost town and there's STILL tons of damage.

      A village can not reorganize village life to suit the village idiot.

          My mom owns the house but my dad lives there (they're divorced but get along). My mom got her funds & the house has been repaired nicely. However, there are still houses on his block and in the surrounding neighborhood that are still in shambles, if they're still standing at all. Long Beach Island, however, was a ghost town this past summer & there are still even more houses on the island that are abandoned and/or waiting repair (Manahawkin is on the NJ mainland & Long Beach Island, a few minutes away, is where the beach is located).

            that will be emerging. NYTimes was on this as were some NJ publications, probably were going to time it for the primaries, 2015 etc. All I've heard is that allocation of Sandy funds has been by race [minorities not getting much/ any] but my info is informal and anecdotal

            •  I didn't know that (0+ / 0-)

              Given the state of today's GOP it doesn't SURPRISE me, however. So much for Christie being "moderate".
