ALBERTSON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – The Clark Botanic Garden on Long Island has reopened, six months after superstorm Sandy hit.
The 12-acre garden in Albertson suffered severe damage when the Oct. 29 storm ripped through. More than 40 trees were knocked down, including some that were 60 feet tall.
Many of the shrubs, bushes, beehives and fences were also destroyed in Sandy.
Town of North Hempstead horticulturist Ryan Torres said while flowers are blooming now, the devastation is still apparent.
