A Union Beach, NJ bar becomes a tribute to those who suffered from Hurricane Sandy

It's been nearly a year since Hurricane Sandy visited us. One of the many areas devastated by the storm was Union Beach, NJ. Eighty percent of the homes suffered some water damage. Gigi Dorr owns Jakeabobs Off The Bay bar and restaurant. It was destroyed.She's relocated. But the future remains uncertain. One of the reasons for that is that the insurance policies she and her neighbors had don't cover everything - in the fine print - she says - there are exclusions - and they got - literally - pennies on the dollars. The new Jakeabobs is a tribute to Union Beach. The tabletops made from doors of houses that were destroyed.
