We’ve written about the possibility of the Jersey Shore sinking [2] but Hurricane Sandy has now shown us how very real those concerns were. Reports from all around the web [3] are saying that Seaside Heights is in a bad way after the Frankenstorm and this disturbing video [4] even shows a roller coaster that is basically in the ocean now. According to CNN [5], New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said that “the level of devastation at the Jersey Shore is unthinkable.” As New Yorkers, our thoughts and prayers go out to our neighbors in NJ.
