Detailed Description

Oblique aerial photographs of the Otis Pike Wilderness breach at Fire Island, New York. The view is looking northwest across Fire Island towards Great South Bay. This location is within Fire Island National Seashore near Old Inlet—a very narrow portion of the island that has experienced breaching in previous large storms. The island breached during Sandy, creating a new inlet. Despite the breach, the fishing shack (yellow arrow) remained standing.
