Gateway National Recreation Area presents “Hurricane Sandy: Before and After,” a photo exhibit featuring the effects of Hurricane Sandy on the park. The exhibit compares large scale satellite images from before the hurricane and photos taken afterward by National Park Service (NPS) employees so that the public can assess the damage to the park.
Post-storm photos were taken by NPS employees as part of the recovery effort. The large format—almost two by three feet—reveals the storm’s effects in great detail. Some of the most dramatic images are aerial shots taken from helicopters used by the team to survey the park.
The exhibit will be on display for the next several months in the Multi-Purpose Room at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, located at 100 Cross Bay Boulevard in Queens. The Visitor Center is open daily, free of charge, from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M.
Visit the Multi-Purpose Room.
