Point/Counterpoint: The Jersey Shore

THIS ARCHITECT’S OPINION:

POINT/COUNTERPOINT

by Laurence E. Parisi, AIA

 

The residents of New Jersey are experienced with hard hitting storms which have caused death and destruction; however, Superstorm Sandy has topped them all as the most destructive hurricane ever recorded in the Garden State.
