Governor Chris Christie and President Barack Obama have each told residents and consumers across the country that the Jersey shore is open for business this summer, but that's not true everywhere along the coast.
While the entire nation turns their attention towards this week's tragic events in Moore, Oklahoma, there's still a great need at the Jersey Shore almost seven months after Superstorm Sandy came crashing in.
Mayors of several of Ocean County's Northern Barrier Island communities are in a race against time to get their beaches and tourism hot spots ready for this summer season, but is it realistic given the devastation of Sandy?
We have been inundated by the images of destruction left behind by Sandy. The sights are sobering, shocking and quite frankly, depressing. In a time like this, positive thinking is key. Instead of sharing the shots of devastation, share this collection with your friends and family. Let's remember the Jersey Shore and look forward to the Jersey Shore that will be rebuilt in the future.
