PHOTOS: Devastation Along Babylon's Coast, Docks

Hurricane Sandy took out her wrath on the buildings and boats along Babylon's shoreline.

The floodwaters from Hurricane Sandy have finally receded enough from Babylon Village's shoreline communities for families and emergency crews to get all the way to the end, revealing a heavily damaged bayview area.

Many notable buildings and areas sustained heavy flooding and wind damage, including the Venetian, boat yards and the Babylon Beach Club right along the docks-area. Other notable places, like Tres Palms and the Babylon Village Pool, suffered major structural damage.

Please note, residents of these communities have asked others from the community to not drive down these roads to see the destruction. They have asked any volunteers come and help, but to give them their privacy while dealing with the tragedy unfolding south of Montauk Highway.

Grew up in Babylon many years ago but none of this looks even remotely familiar. Sad to see but that is nature.

Does anyone have news on how West Babylon was hit? I have several cousins there and have not been able to reach anyone since the storm. They are just south of Southern States Parkway off of Straight Path. Any info would be appreciated.

I grew up in Babylon Village, on Sumpwams Place, many years ago. I have not been back to that area for a very long time. I agree, nothing looks remotely familiar to me. Ever since I heard about the storm and the devastation that it caused, I have been googling the Babylon news stories. My heart goes out to all that have been affected.

Parts of West Babylon were hit. I did work with many West Babylon residents over the last week at First Presbyterian Church who needed food, clothing, etc.
