A bay front house in Patchogue that was severely damaged during Superstorm Sandy in 2012 was demolished last week, according to an announcement from the Town of Brookhaven.
Councilman Neil Foley was on hand last Tuesday, Nov. 12 to witness the house razed 2 South Breeze Drive in Patchogue (town picture above).
The house was one of some 100,000 damaged in the late October storm, among which 2,000 that were rendered uninhabitable, according to the town.
The property in Patchogue is being left in its natural state.
The town paid for the project. Check back at GreaterPatchogue for additional details.
“The south shore of Brookhaven was impacted hard by Super Storm Sandy and we are still recovering seven years after that catastrophic event,” Foley said in a statement.
“I thank the Town of Brookhaven Law Department for their efforts to finally rid the neighborhood of this eyesore.”
