Watched the telethon. Really good. Steve Tyler and Jimmy Fallow singing lead on Under The Boardwalk, with Springsteen, Billy Joel doing backup vocals! Plus a lot of great acoustic acts.
A lot of interviews with people that got hit by Sandy, and a lot of visuals of the destruction. Hard to watch since I could point out several different places I've been, both in NJ and NYC. I wonder how my old apartment held up- it was only a block off the beach on the 3rd floor. Really is different when you see your old stomping grounds destroyed, as opposed to some place you've never been to.
Found a video of my old town. (I lived in Ocean Grove, Avon and Neptune borders the Grove).
And here's what's left of the Grove's boardwalk.
Nice video of the Grove and nearby towns' destruction.
Sandy smacking the Grove Monday night. At about 5:00 you can see what the fishing pier used to look like.
And here you can see wha't left of the pier.
