Superstorm Sandy

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A new photo exhibit documenting superstorm Sandy’s destruction has opened at the Museum of the City of New York.

As WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported, there are images that capture structural devastation, natural beauty and human despair.

“It brings you back to the moments of that storm where it was a storm unlike anything we had ever experienced,” said chief curator Sarah Henry.

“Rising Waters: Photographs of Sandy” features photos taken by professionals and amateurs.
