When Sandy Hit: The Storm that Forever Changed New Jersey
Through January 20, 2014

Sandy ImageOctober 29, 2012, was a catastrophic day in the lives of all New Jerseyans.  Sandy came with a fury rarely seen and left unimaginable heartbreak and devastation in her wake.

In conjunction with the book When Sandy Hit: The Storm that Forever Changed New Jersey, the Morris Museum and the Star-Ledger will present the work of Star-Ledger photographers who fought through floods, power outages, and their own personal losses to document the incredible impact Sandy had on New Jersey.  This exhibition portrays a state broken by Mother Nature’s awesome fury and the story of a state determined to rise again.  As we approach the One Year Anniversary of this super storm, these photographs will document the survival, resilience and rebuilding of New Jersey.
