Tad Britt, NCPTT’s Chief of Archeology and Collections, spent 13-23 November in Staten Island and surrounding area surveying hurricane damage per Section 106 of the NHRP, as amended.  Britt was part of the READ (research advisor) team who were deployed to investigate the park properties, which had been subjected to the ravenous effects of Hurricane Sandy and received a variety impacts.  From downed trees scattered haphazardly across trails to wind damage to roof lines and buildings, the team visited and documented the damage so that the parks could reopen.  The work will continue for the next few weeks.
