PHOTOS: Ocean Grove, Unsteady But Surviving Hurricane Sandy

Community is recovering

Few have talked about Ocean Grove, with its ornate lamps and Victorian homes, and whether the community survived in ways that other historic Jersey Shore beaches did not.

For the most part, it did. Many houses appear to be structural sound. Other parts of the community, however, did not fare so well.

Like so many beach communities, the first - and worst - victim was the boardwalk.

Like the first comment: Let us know if a special day when annual visitors can come back and help clean up ( if I know what to do and am able to do it, like I told my boss )- Steve Hoffman - Allentown PA

Too bad there's not a shot of 4 North Boardwalk by the Asbury Park Casino building.

Part of my family history, a place like Ocean Grove shall endure forever.

Don't know how much things have improved since the pics were taken (and being positive that there has been work done) but keeping God's Square Mile in prayer. Hope to be back this summer...would even be willing to work on restoration project if needed. Peace be with you all.
