We have seen a lot of "before and after" imagery recently.

 

To us, this is a gallery of our homes and the coast we love...

 

“AFTER” it was devastated by a hurricane.

 

To our grandchildren, this will be a portrait of how things were…

 

"BEFORE" we created the “New” Jersey Shore.

 

 

 The shock of the destruction to our communities along the Jersey Shore is unprecedented in our lifetime, and difficult to comprehend. The landscape has changed drastically and dramatically. The initial goal of this project was to capture a large stretch of the shore at this new point in history for informational and historical purposes, and provide an aesthetic medium for its display.  The “Before” Section of this website was designed with that goal in mind.

 

As we are still in the initial phases of recovery, it is hard to conceive of a time when we will begin to rebuild. However, the time will come and to meet today's environmental challenges, rebuilding our beaches and homes will require the same proactive approach we've taken with our recovery effort.

 

Most of the discussion following the storm has been focused on rebuilding the physical aspects of The Jersey Shore. This will come, but in the immediate future, as we continue to recover, we believe the most important things to continue to build upon are character and community.  We must connect with our neighbors, and our leaders.  We must strengthen existing lines of communication and form new ones. 

 

 After all, history tells us that with great devastation comes great opportunity. We hope to see community members join together to take this opportunity to build a sustainable future along the New Jersey coastline - for the next generation and beyond.  And it is our hope to use this platform as a stepping-stone to that end. 

 

Our grandchildren will be taking the true “AFTER” photos…

 

What will they look like?

BE CONNECTED.  BE INFORMED.

 

BE OPEN MINDED.  BE INVOLVED.

 

BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.

 

The source imagery for the Ocean County panoramic image is a continuous series of high resolution photographs that were stitched together.

A similar set of data was also captured 11/1/12 for Monmouth County from the Manasquan Inlet to Sandy Hook, however, due to perspective alignment, these images will not be able to be stitched into a panoramic image that can become image mapped and interactive.

 

The imagery will eventually be uploaded to a gallery for browsing.

If you are interested in the imagery from Monmouth County, please let us know.

WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING DONATIONS FOR RECOVERY EFFORTS 

You will notice a link to the American Red Cross on the bottom of each page.  The Red Cross is a massive organization that does a lot of good work for many people in times of need. In anticipWe wanted some type of relief support to be on every page of this site, so we chose avenue of support that is widely known and trusted.

 BUT WE WOULD LIKE TO PROMOTE THE MOST EFFECTIVE LOCAL BASED EFFORTS

Please email us with suggestions of reputable organizations that have helped you and your neighbors the most.  We can post quotes from your email with your hometown, and let others make their own decisions on who to support for the longer term recover efforts.
