A boarded bungalow sits beside newly built homes on stilts in the Breezy Point neighborhood Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2015, in New York, before the third anniversary of Superstorm Sandy. Arthur Lighthall, general manager of the Breezy Point Cooperative, said 220 Breezy Point homes were completely destroyed by flooding during Sandy and another 135 homes burned to the ground during a massive fire ignited by the storm. “Every day, it’s getting a little bit better,” Lighthall said. “The buildings going up to replace destroyed beach bungalows are being put on high foundations so that future floods will, hopefully, wash beneath the houses rather than bowl them over,” he said.
