BAY PARK, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A celebration was held Saturday after a new bulkhead was built to protect shorefront homes in Bay Park, Long Island.
As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported, the bulkhead was constructed along the Grand Canal in Bay Park. Teresa Gaffney lives two blocks away, and still was not back in her home more than nine months after Superstorm Sandy.
“It was over the kitchen counter in my house. So I lost everything but my bedrooms,” she said.
