Hurricane Sandy by FCDA Photographers

1 of 4

In the immediate aftermath of hurricane Sandy, one of the most devastating storms ever to strike the eastern seaboard, three FCDA photographers – Alan Chin and Andrew Lichtenstein – fanned out across the New York City area to capture scenes of the city in crisis. Chin was on hand as firefighters battled blazes in Breezy Point; while Lichtenstein photographed devastation in the Rockaways and the beachside communities of Brooklyn.
