Barges of Boulders Shore Up Cow Neck After Sandy [AERIAL PHOTOS]

Superstorm Sandy took a toll on Louis Bacon's property fronting Great Peconic Bay.

Hedge fund billionaire Louis Bacon's Sebonac property took a beating from Superstorm Sandy in October, and crews are at work this week making repairs to the waterfront.

Bacon famously donated a conservation easement of more than 500 acres in Cow Neck to Peconic Land Trust in 2001, according to The New York Times.

Pictures captured on Thursday by aerial photographer Jeff Cully, of East End Fine Arts Services in Quogue, illustrate the storm damage to the bluffs on the Great Peconic Bay, and the work being done to remediate it.

Two barges carrying boulders to be deposited on the shore are anchored in the bay.

In late December, a barge carrying 400 tons of stone ran aground on the Great Peconic Bay shore in Hampton Bays, and local escavation companies responded to help.
