LONG BEACH, N.Y. (AP) -- The city of Long Beach held a ground breaking ceremony on Saturday to mark the beginning of a replacement project that will include the 2-mile long boardwalk destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.

Long Beach, just east of New York City, was among the worst-hit communities during last October's storm.

The entire length of the wooden boardwalk had to be ripped out, leaving only concrete support beams.

Newsday says the $44 million project is expected to be completed by early November. Some sections will be reopened before that, as soon as they're completed.

Residents and businesses in Long Beach say the boardwalk and beach are vital magnets in drawing visitors to the seaside city.

    Growing, snapping, picking, sorting, and a little time for laughs in between take place at Homecoming Farm in Amityville, New York. The real mission is to feed the tristate area's hungry. The farm-to-table approach has been in homecoming farm's DNA since 1875 when a group of Dominican sisters from Germany immigrated into Brooklyn and then founded the farm.
