John F. Kennedy Stadium Fully Recovered from Hurricane Sandy
There is no need to remind any of our residents about the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. Sometimes, good things come about through adversity and there is one very positive change at JFK Stadium. The old scoreboard that was destroyed in the storm has finally been replaced with a new scoreboard that is much more visible because it is larger and it was installed across from the stadium seating for all fans to see.
