A construction worker on the roof of the restaurant Tom’s Coney Island. Tom’s faces the boardwalk but somehow managed to escape severe damage from Hurricane Sandy. They held a benefit for their less fortunate neighbors late last year to aid in the community’s recovery. The boardwalk’s businesses are set to be fully operational by summer.
