Hurricane Sandy: A Documentary

Nearly one month after Hurricane Sandy hit the Jersey Shore and the Northeast, I discovered the following documentary that was compiled by Charlotte Nagy, a 16 year old Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School student, who is a Rumson resident and has, her whole life, spent summers at Sea Bright.

I am intimately familiar with these communities, whether summering there or educating their children; and I consider Rumson, Fair Haven, Sea Bright, Long Branch, Middletown and the entire Two River Region of the Jersey Shore my second home. To see the images that Charlotte Nagy expertly put together in this documentary is nothing short of devastating and heartbreaking. What has been seen on the news is nothing compared to the what Charlotte picked up on her camera in both picture and video format.

After one month, this documentary is gaining traction and could be considered the precursor for an upcoming Train performance in Sea Bright, as Charlotte is a huge fan of theirs and has used their music in the documentary. Please watch and share her documentary, as this is firsthand, primary source documentation that very few outside of the New York Metropolitian area have seen.

May God continue to Bless the victims of Hurricane Sandy. I am confident enough to say we are Jersey Strong and while it may not be the same, we will see The Rising of the Jersey Shore!
