Rebuilding begins in 1 of Weehawken's oldest neighborhoods

WEEHAWKEN - People in Weehawken are busy cleaning and rebuilding after the damage Sandy left behind.

Parts of "The Shades" neighborhood, one of the lowest lying areas of Weehawken, were completely flooded with as much as six feet of water. In the aftermath of Sandy, garbage lined the streets, blocking cars and people from getting through.

Now, residents there say it is getting better. Neighbors and contractors are working together along with community and religious groups to help clean up and rebuild the neighborhood.

Mayor Richard Turner says it's taking a lot of time, but that The Shades is a great neighborhood, and neighbors are really pulling together to recover from the storm.
