This website displays a continuous sequence of high-resolution images of the Jersey Shore from The Barnegat Inlet to Sandy Hook captured less than 72 hours after Hurricane Sandy made landfall. Virtually every inch of this stretch of coast was captured for history.
The site was designed by a team of volunteers that were directly impacted by the storm.
As you browse the images, please contemplate and reflect the impact of this event on the coastal environment itself, as well as the people affected who have lived, worked, and enjoyed this stretch of coast for generations.
May this serve as a “digital memorial” to the losses we have suffered, as well as a humble reminder of the power of nature, our delicate existence within it, and the need for sustainable balance between the two. Let us plan accordingly.
ON THIS HOME PAGE, YOU WILL FIND:
1. A simple tutorial for the Digital Memorial Galleries.
2. A brief explanation of what else this site is about, and information on how to get involved.
WE HOPE YOUR RECOVERY IS GOING AS WELL AS POSSIBLE.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING.

PRINTS of all the images are available for purchase through PhotoShelter. Proceeds will be used to cover the costs of creating, completing, and maintaining this site, as well as benefiting local recovery efforts.
We wanted relief and recovery to be a part of each page on this site. You will notice a link to the American Red Cross on each page. The Red Cross is a massive organization that does a lot of good work. We chose a general link that is widely known and trusted. We encourage continued support of The Red Cross and other organizations helping people locally and around the world. Also, we hope you communicate through this website so together we meet needs more directly and efficiently as we transition from relief to recovery and finally rebuilding.
