One set of pictures depicts the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy: a completely ruined tennis court, a street ravaged by construction, and the exposed foundation of a house after the storm took its toll.

Friends of Edgewood Park’s Jon Miller sent in the following write-up about a clean-up in Edgewood Park:
In small amounts litter is a nuisance, but when it accumulates into the kind of massive eyesore that recently developed in Edgewood Park, it becomes a serious threat.
