JERSEY CITY - Liberty State Park, which was decimated by Sandy last year, may not be fully operational again for another two years, according to the park's superintendent.

Robert Rodriguez says the park sustained more than $20 million in damages from the storm, and it may not be fully reopened until 2015. The most repairs will be done at the park's railroad terminal building, which was damaged both inside and out.

Rodriguez says portions of the park's walkway along the Hudson could reopen by the end of the year.
