Niantic Bay Boardwalk

November 2011

March 2013

The Niantic Bay Boardwalk was closed after Hurricane Irene hit Connecticut in August 2011.  Even though only a tropcial storm when it came ashore in Connecticut, it still caused a lot of damage along the coastline here.  The first picture taken in November 2011 shows the boardwalk then.  It doesn't look like the boardwalk was damaged all that much.  Nevertheless it must have been unsafe and as a result it was closed.  Since then Hurricane Sandy also caused a lot more damage along the shoreline and as can be seen the boardwalk suffered some more damage.  It remains closed.  I'm not sure when it will re-open.


  1. I found your blog by chance and stopped to look at your beautiful pictures. I do not know what type of camera you own but your photos are really sharp. I enlarged them and appreciated their clarity.

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog and for commenting. I appreciate it. As for the the camera, I use a Nikon D90 and have used it for about 3 years now. These photos were taken with the AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED lens. I take all my photos with RAW capture and do a little post processing. I'm still learning. I'm glad you like the photos.
