Ruins of Staten Island

View from the interior of a gazebo in the Oakwood neighborhood of Staten Island. The debris in the netting indicates how high the flood waters surged. Families who evacuated returned to find most or all of their furniture and personal possessions destroyed or missing. In the days after the storm, residents together with volunteers from across New York and beyond cleared debris and hauled out saturated furniture for disposal by Department of Sanitation services.
