    Wedding gown found 2 years after storm

    Two years ago, Nicole Pagliaro of Staten Island dropped off her wedding gown to be cleaned and preserved at a local dry cleaner when superstorm Sandy hit. The store was destroyed and Pagliaro assumed so had been her dress.  As her wedding anniversary approached, Pagliaro and her husband drove by another dry cleaner in town and saw the gown in the store's window. “I held on to the ticket because this was my only connection to my wedding dress,” said Pagliaro.
