1938 Hurricane Damage on Pine Creek Avenue

(click on image to enlarge)
Here is "SEASIDE" cottage on Pine Creek Avenue, still standing on the sand, facing Long Island Sound, after the category 5 Hurricane of 1938. The first summer-only cottages along Pine Creek Avenue and French Street were built between the 1890's and the 1920's. Some were Sears Homes ordered from a catalog and were prefabricated, sent in kits, that would arrive by train and hauled to the shoreline.
