The Wait is Over for Some Sandy Victims
Bayshore Bungalow Program & Nonprofit Partners Welcome Families Home
A long time Union Beach resident and his family are the first to move into the Bayshore Bungalows Modular Units replacing a neighborhood washed away during Super storm Sandy.
Despite having had to wait more than two-and-a-half years after the storm after losing the home he lived in for 27 years and most of its valuables, David Suttles said he considers himself lucky.
“When I look around the corner from where my house is, and I see empty lots and nothing going on, I realize I’m one of the lucky ones,” said Suttles.
Suttles, was part of a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday, along with Union Beach Mayor Paul Smith, celebrating the opening of the first modular unit at 614 Bayview Avenue for Sandy-impacted homeowners.
