BROOKLYN - A year has passed by, but many businesses in the Sheepshead Bay fishing community are still trying to stay afloat in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

Waterfront shops, such as Bernie's Bait and Tackle, experienced a surge of seawater flooding through their doors, while boats sank and docks crumbled.

Owners say that business hasn't returned to normal since, and that being down by 10 percent now is equivalent to being up by 20 percent before the storm.

The community says that the fish are biting and the boats are running again, but many people don't seem to know it. Residents hope to see more people returning to the waterfront soon.
