PATERSON (AP) - A Paterson site that was devastated by Hurricane Sandy and Superstorm Irene is back and open for business.

The $35 million urban redevelopment project now contains a supermarket, retail space, a riverwalk and park.

It sits on the Passaic River.

Super Supermarket owners Antonio and Jeffrey Perez built their store on piers to elevate it from future flooding.

The site was so badly damaged after Irene that President Obama visited.
