Retiree Buddy Sammis gestures toward solar panels he and his neighbors used to change their cell phones three years ago after portions of the Rockaway Beach boardwalk washed onto his street severing power lines, as he walks through a neighborhood-run community garden in the Rockaways Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2015, in New York before the third anniversary of Superstorm Sandy. Sammis a longtime surfer, said, “I miss the (old) boardwalk. It was iconic. It was the longest boardwalk in the world, when it went all the way to 126th Street. Now it’s all cement. That’s not going to stop anything. If the ocean wants to take the concrete away, it’ll happen.” (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
