One year after Superstorm Sandy hit, Hoboken still bears the traces, some visible, some invisible. Many flooded homes have been repaired, others have not. Many residents spent days or months cleaning out their homes or businesses, or helping neighbors clean out theirs. Thousands coped with the challenging commute to New York for months while the PATH train was out of service, and hundreds of cars were towed away as total losses.
The storm disrupted all our lives in one way or another, and the Hoboken Historical Museum has been busy collecting the stories and images of its impact on our community to preserve it for history.
On the eve of the first anniversary of the storm, and through the generous support from individuals, corporate donors and community organizations and state agencies, the Museum is opening a new exhibit on Saturday, Oct. 26. Titled “Hoboken: One Year After Sandy, Lessons Learned about Preparedness, Resiliency, and Community,” the exhibit assembles a range of content—oral histories, images, videos, maps and scientific analyses—to help explain how Hoboken responded and learned new lessons about coping with major storm surges. As a special feature, through the auspices of the United Way of Hudson County, the Museum will host a Sandy Community Outreach program for residents affected by the storm throughout the course of the exhibit.
