Superstorm Buyouts

Superstorm Buyouts

An abandoned swimming pool remains in the lot of a house in the low-lying Oakwood Beach neighborhood on Staten Island's Southeastern shore in New York on Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2013. The forces of nature had been threatening the neighborhood for years, flooding the streets every time it rained and swamping bungalows so regularly that it was just accepted as part of life. But when Superstorm Sandy swept in and killed three residents, the state decided to buy 400 homes, bulldoze them and convert the whole area into green space. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
