Reid Avenue pre and post-Sandy


IMG_1757Reid Avenue in Breezy Point did not suffer any fires as a result of Hurricane Sandy, but still suffered significant damage. The south side of Reid Avenue, around Thetford, Doris, Janet Lanes and Graham Place is known as the “bowl” of Breezy Point due to the low elevation and tendency for the area to flood even from a moderate amount of rain.

On the north end of Reid Avenue, at Jamaica Bay, the pier and the Bayhouse, a popular local restaurant with amazing views of the New York skyline, have been destroyed. Click here for before and after photos of the pier and Bayhouse and the destruction on Reid Avenue.
