In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Coney Island’s boardwalk was covered in sand and its local businesses were flooded with seawater. Volunteers have been working for months to recover from the devastation left behind. Now that spring has come, Coney Island has re-opened for the season. The before and after images show that while the area is still under construction, New York’s most famous beach and boardwalk is ready for guests. The entire restoration is geared towards completion by summer 2013.
