It's been nearly a year since superstorm Sandy slammed into the northeast coast.

When it comes to rebuilding and recovery efforts along the New Jersey shore,  it's been a mixed bag.

So those residents who are able to return home often find themselves moving back into strangely empty neighborhoods.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Tracey Samuelson of WHYY in Philadelphia takes us to one such block in Little Egg Harbor, right outside Atlantic City.
