EDISON - New Jersey residents are proud of their fighting spirit and their ability to turn things around, and many say the loss in Seaside Park won't be any different.

Less than a year ago, the most destructive storm in New Jersey history battered the same area stuck by fire Thursday.

"It made me want to throw up,” said Gov. Chris Christie.

Many say the devastation caused by Sandy made residents realize that New Jersey is a survivor.

"We're just Jersey people and we're going to come back," says Brendan McConway, of Elizabeth. "There's no doubt about it. I mean, you see it every day."
