Peg Allen, of Franklinville, N.J., with arms raised, watches a live performance by musical group Fun at the Seaside Heights boardwalk, Friday, May 24, 2013, in Seaside Heights, N.J. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cut a ribbon to symbolically reopen the state's shore for the summer season, seven months after being devastated by Superstorm Sandy. Several beach communities have annual beach ribbon cuttings, announcing they are back in business. But this year's ceremonies are more poignant seven months after a storm that did an estimated $37 billion of damage in the state. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
