Photo tour of the Rockaway Peninsula, post-Hurricane Sandy

Curbed, in their Camera Obscura column, had Nathan Kensigner head to the Rockaway Peninsula to take some photos of the area after Hurricane Sandy. His work is always excellent, and this report is no different. It’s a surreal landscape now, and in the words of one Edgemere resident, “Its like a bad dream that I can’t wake up from.”

Here’s a couple of examples of what Kensinger saw. Click to enlarge:
