Rockaways Before Sandy

My heart and mind are in the Rockaways. I am finally going out there to look for old friends and to witness the unthinkable.

Here are a couple of images I took over the years. The photograph of the young girl folding her laundry was taken in a laundromat that no longer stands. I photographed the woman in the Irish green tiara in front of her home this past St. Paddy's Day. And the camper belongs to Bob. I can't imagine how Bob managed to survive the flooding in his camper home.
