21. Because We Rebuilt


For six days after Hurricane Sandy, photographer Natan Dvir ≠documented the waterlogged, the flooded, the piled-up, the overturned, the uprooted. A year later, he revisited the same scenes at the same times of day.

Top row, from left: The Battery Park Underpass, Manhattan. It was reopened by November 14, 2012.

Middle row: Battery Gardens restaurant, Manhattan, which took in ten feet of water. It hosted its first wedding since the storm on November 9, 2012.

Bottom row: Beach 119th Street, Rockaway Park. A year later, the street was almost back to normal.
