Sorry, We Are Closed: The Impact Hurricane Sandy Had on Local Businesses
This study assesses the effects that Hurricane Sandy had on local businesses in the Rockaway Peninsula. Through observation and semi-structured interviews conducted in Rockaway Beach and Beach 67, the researchers analyze how business owners have responded to this natural disaster. The report seeks to suggest that Hurricane Sandy left businesses destroyed, having to build from the bottom up. The study concludes that local businesses suffered from massive flooding causing businesses to have to remodel and renovate their stores, a loss of revenue, and loss of product. However, Hurricane Sandy has also brought the community closer together through this horrific natural disaster.
