NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- With just one month left in the first post-Sandy summer, life is seemingly back to normal on Long Beach Island, an 18-mile skinny strip of sand that has been a family refuge for generations.Although "seemingly" is the operative word here, overall, the island's recovery has been amazing. The parade of construction trucks is now dwarfed by the regular summer traffic, but there is still plenty of construction going on. The whir of saw, and pop of nail guns are sounds blending in with the calls of the gulls and sounds of motorboats.
