ISLAND PARK - Peter's Clam Bar opened today, six months after Sandy swamped the restaurant with 5 feet of water.

Owner Angelo Ramummi says there was about $300,000 worth of damage, and insurance covered nothing. He says he reached out to the county for help finding funding and grants.

While there's still no deck, the neighborhood is happy to have Peter's Clam Bar back in business.

Nassau Legislator Howard Koppel says there is federal and state funding available for businesses, and that the county can help cut through the red tape.
