Aerial Photos: Repairs Begin on Hamptons Shore Post-Sandy

Homeowners and municipalities put beaches back together that were devastated by Superstorm Sandy.

Bulldozers, trucks and backhoes were out in force last week on the Hamptons coast from Bridgehampton to East Hampton, pushing around sand and repairing dunes that took a hit from Superstorm Sandy, and aerial photographer Jeff Cully of East End Fine Arts Services in Quogue.

It's nice to see that they are using maritime sand in Southampton to replenish the beaches compared to the mined quarry sand that they are using on the beaches in montauk and other places.

It is nice to see the RICH EAST END gets the beaches replenished before the beach for LOCALS can even get looked out I guess the Rich prevail again and the Locals loose out

Shouldn't there be some oversight of the moving and taking of beach sand by private citizens who can afford to hire bull-dozers - before Town officials can check what homeowners are doing??

There are still people and animals who want to walk on the beaches. Even if they can climb up and over the giant tracks of the sand-moving trucks, the drivers go about 30mph and seem to be oblivious to anything other than their destination. It would be nice to strike a balance-for safety.

I can't help but notice how these photos show how really small (and perhaps insignificant) we are compared to the forces of nature.

Bridgehampton beach is my favorite... better than Coopers beach in Southampton. The saddest thing on the island is the farms are almost obsolete. Disasters always teach us humility in the face of 4 lethal powers we cannot control: earth, wind, fire + water.

Christie, You should put up Fr. Alex as SH Person of the Year & are also right keeping his church hidden. If it was a Catholic Church he would be a scandal to Catholics, out of step with the encyclicals of the last 5 popes (to Pious X11) who have sharply condemned Capitalism, praising unionism & urging the U.S. government to turn away from its wars of aggression and being the world's largest arms dealer, destabilizing regions, undermining the economies & well being of many nations, impoverishing. They have asked nations to turn away from the overwrought consumerism as the engine of its economy that ignores its baneful consequences esp. upon undeveloped nations and the well being of its people, nourishing a materialism antithetical to the Church's teachings. If Fr. Alex is Episcopalian or Lutheran he is even more out of step with its Church's social policy. Just having an honorific "Fr." before any (male) name doesn't confer any special holiness, wisdom or even faithfulness to its denomination, as we have seen in such crackpots as "Rev" Swaggert, Pat Robertson & other stupid, right wing crackpots (like the good Rev. Briesner who blamed Hurricane Sandy upon the nation's support of gay rights & Obama. Let's not forget the anti-Semite Fr. Coughlin, who had the largest radio audience of his time & preached that Hitler was saving Germany from chaos and the depredations of International Jewish "Christ-killer" bankers & their Bolshevist agents. Fr. Alex agree w you & yr far right?

hey Mo, you're losing it... this is about the beaches in the hamptons, not religious leaders. Go read: Liberalism is a Mental Disorder. You will find ALL your neurotic lefty symptoms including your disrespect for male Christian leaders... Mo, really you have no respect for America, so why not take yourself the hell out of here?
