A Tale of Two Holidays in Sandy’s Aftermath

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, except in places ravaged by superstorm Sandy. While most people have recovered from the hurricane’s devastating winds and storm surge, pockets of New York and New Jersey are still reeling from the damage. Thousands have been displaced from their homes and lost everything with the storm. Yet, the extravagant holiday decorating continues apace in New York City. The Daily Beast looks at the disparity between the haves and have nots this holiday season.
