Photos: Long Beach Starts to Revive

Scenes from the city on Nov. 19, three weeks after Hurricane Sandy made landfall on Long Island.

On Monday — three weeks after Hurricane Sandy arrived and the day after a weekend when an reported 500 volunteers were in Long Beach to help clean streets, parks and beach — contractors were repairing roofs on homes, road reconstruction work resumed on Boyd Street, and industrial garbage collectors cleared debris from gutted homes on Ohio Street in the West End to Curely Street in the Canals.

While a Patch photographer trekked around the city to capture these and other scenes for today’s photo gallery, several streets, especially in the West End, were still filled with debris but also many others, such as Edwards Boulevard, were completely free of trash. Everyone from post office to sanitation to Verizon employees was spotted working, and more than a few shops had reopened for business.  

The Long Beach City Council’s regular meeting is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. (instead of 7 p.m.) at City Hall on Tuesday.

Mr Kellard, Can you post anything (text or photos) of East Bay Drive between Franklin and Neptune...the homes on the bay AND the homes (Drake Homes as they are called..the Developer '49) on the other side of the street. Thanks.

The sign on Lindell Deli says "We are "NOT" open"

We had terrible streets and gutters on Boyd St. Now we have beautiful driveways and sidewalks(thanks Bill and crew) and gutted houses (thanks Sandy). We will rebuild! LB <3

Not open? Probably shouldn't go there then!
