Like the Village of Lindenhurst Babylon Town has begun massive clean-up efforts in the Venetian Shores area of Lindy South of Montauk Highway - which like everywhere else South of Montauk in Lindenhurst was breached by the record tidal/storm surge and flood waters generated by Hurricane Sandy.
On Thursday, November 1, the clean-up was in full force with large payloaders and trucks taking away debris that was made up of residents' belongings, boats and a lifetime of memories.
Many homes were also severely damaged there, some even being washed away or severely breached by the salt water of the Great South Bay.
Even Harding Avenue Elementary School, where many residents usually park their cars to keep them safe from flooding during storms, was breached for the very first time by the rising flood waters. According to school officials earlier this week, there was some water in the boiler room that was able to be pumped out.
Take a look through the Lindy Lens at the video and photos, which tell the story better than words ever could.
