On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy hit NYC. The superstorm devastated beaches, shut down all flights, subways and buses, and knocked out the power in half of Manhattan. Four years later, we haven’t seen a storm that big in the city. (But Tropical Storm Hermine and Hurricane Matthew made us nervous for a second.) And though New Yorkers banded together to stand strong and stock up on supplies from Duane Reade, Sandy’s influence still rages on: The 18-month L train shutdown is to repair hurricane damage. Still, look back at these 11 photos and see how much has already been done.
