FIRE ISLAND, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Another community devastated by superstorm Sandy has reopened in time for the July 4th holiday.
“Fire Island is open for business,” Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine declared while leading a walking tour of Fire Island Pines on Monday.
“We’re here in front of a pine tree that they just planted. The original, that represented the Pines, were blown down during the storm. This is back up, all the businesses are back up you can see they’re rebuilding,” Romaine told reporters including WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola.
