NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 29: Work continues on a new pavilion at Rockaway Beach following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, which destroyed large parts of the boardwalk, on October 29, 2013 in the Queens borough of New York City. Today is the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy. Many residents of the Rockaways and neighboring Breezy Point are reflecting on the progress made over the past year while acknowledging the problems still evident. While the area has made great headway with rebuilding and renovations to the iconic beach communities, the storm devastated much of the area with severe flooding and wind damage. Hurricane Sandy made landfall on October 29 near Brigantine, New Jersey and affected 24 states from Florida to Maine and cost the country an estimated $65 billion.
