You wouldn't think it, but this rivertown which is a good 25 miles upriver from New York Bay still got inundated with the storm surge! Think of the amazing power of that storm going all that distance and against the normal current!
The 3 really established restaurants just north of town-- Portofino, Cornetta's, and Lighthouse were wiped out. Particularly the latter 2 which are on docks right on the river. These 3 are all real landmarks in the town, they have been there and are well established for 20-30 years.
Any news on if these restaurants will have the means to rebuild? Cornettta's looks like a war zone. Ditto Lighthouse. I saw a blurb in the Patch that there is some hope for Portofino.
I also hear that River Club in Nyack is also severely damaged. Anyone have news as to whether these landmark places are trying to rebuild?
