The Lost Arcade

Produced by

Dick speaks with Bob Stewart, a volunteer firefighter and business owner in Seaside Heights, N.J. He spent hours before Hurricane Sandy warning people to leave the small beach town, and many did not. He then went into the flooded streets to rescue them with the fire department. From time to time, he'd check on his own business, a boardwalk arcade, and eventually found it had crumbled. There was nothing left but the merry-go-round. See a video of Bob Stewart in a local news station here.
