Union Beach, NJ After Hurricane Sandy

Union Beach, NJ After Hurricane Sandy

11/16/12-THE FORGOTTEN TOWN
Union Beach, New Jersey is a small town of a little more than 6000 residents. Nestled on the Raritan Bay in Northern Monmouth County, less than an hour outside New York City, it is a close knit friendly town where almost everyone knows one another by name and even non residents will get a wave as they drive thru town. It is reminiscent of a small mid western town-friendly, warm, inviting, and many of the residents grew up here. Many have moved away, return to raise their own families here.
What most people donÕt know is that Union Beach suffered the 2nd most damage of all the towns in New Jersey, trailing behind Atlantic City.
