Post-Sandy building permits rise and fall

A Newsday study of building permits issued for South Shore areas in the eight months after superstorm Sandy shows that the number rose in some municipalities and fell in others when compared to the same eight-month period a year earlier. These figures come from the town, city and village planning and building departments.

Town of Southampton figures include building permits for both residential and business. All others include residential permits only, though not all permits are related to Sandy repair and construction. The villages of Island Park and Lawrence in Nassau County and Mastic Beach, Saltaire and Westhampton Beach in Suffolk County did not release their monthly building permit figures.
