Life changed for thousands in our region almost a year ago when Sandy blew in. For John Cori, a resident of Rockaway Beach, that change is most evident when he steps out his front door every morning and heads towards a boardwalk that has yet to be re-built.

Cori said the boardwalk is especially important to him. "I already told my kid, this is where my ashes are going to go when I die, this is the palace. This is heaven to me. And the boardwalk is the key, it's the gateway to our community."
