This house in Sea Bright, N.J., shown here on Jan. 15, 2013, is one of the first in the storm-devastated town to be elevated while being rebuilt. The town's entire business district was wiped out by Superstorm Sandy (four shops have since re-opened) and 75 percent of residents are still homeless. Yet Sea Bright is determined to rebuild as a debate rages on whether to restore shore communities to their pre-storm condition, or buy out properties in flood-prone areas and depopulate them.
