The Long Beach boardwalk, a landmark in my hometown is starting to come down. Thanks to the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, the two and quarter mile boardwalk that was first built in 1914 with elephants carrying the wood, was destroyed. There are parts where the wood just blew away, the wood ramps that lead to the beach are gone and the ticket booths were found blocks away in the center of town.
The boardwalk has always been my favorite place in Long Beach. Its where I would go when I needed to clear my head and a walk on it would do that, its where you have many firsts in your life and once I started getting into photography, it was one of my favorite places to shoot at any time of the day.
A new one is slated to be built and new memories will be made on it.
