Chuck Schumer (D-NY) speaks at re-opening ceremonies at Fairway Market on the waterfront in Red Hook on March 1, 2013 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. Fairway, which quickly became a popular shopping destination and an anchor in the struggling community of Red Hook, was closed following severe flooding during Hurricane Sandy on October 29, 2012. Like the rest of Red Hook, Fairway has struggled to quickly re-open in a neighborhood that lost dozens of businesses during the storm. The re-opening, which included a ceremony and ribbon cutting featuring Miss America and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is being viewed as Red Hooks official comeback since the storm.
