Hurricane Sandy barreled through the bayshore, leaving a path of destruction in her wake.
Share your photos and videos by clicking the 'Upload Photos and Videos' button. Wide eyes took in the scene on West Front Street in Keyport Tuesday morning, as bayshore residents crunched over the carnage of their beloved local businesses and marinas. The windows of Ye Cottage Inn were blown out and the building was left barely standing. Keyport Fishery still stood, but only as a flooded shell. Bob's Hot Dogs was crumpled to the ground, and the boats in Pedersen's Marina were toppled over.

The public art project installed last summer, which consisted of large mosaics, …

Waterfront Park off Raritan Bay has a windy but quiet Sunday before the storm.
The Borough of Keyport, historic Bayshore neighbor to Matawan, Aberdeen and Hazlet, has an uneasy ringside seat for the anticipated arrival of Hurricane Sandy late Monday.

The bayside walkway of Waterfront Park, normally a popular place for fishing and strolling, had little activity. The curious few stood by the rail for a look at the bay, snapping photos or pulling up the hoods on sweatshirts as a chill wind bent the park's newly planted trees.
