Waves from Hurricane Sandy took their toll all over Long Island, destroying homes and businesses along the shorelines of various communities, including those throughout the Town of Babylon.
One area of Babylon that had not been seen since the storm struck, though, was the barrier beaches. Suffolk County reopened the Robert Moses Causeway to Captree Island and the Ocean Parkway up to Cedar Beach Marina last week, allowing limited access for residents to those areas.
The beaches, as expected, did not fare well – many tons of sand are missing from the shorelines, dunes have been decimated, debris strewn throughout the beaches and many parts of the Overlook and Cedar Beach bathhouses have been damaged.
