Senior citizens affected by Superstorm Sandy have created a mural that symbolizes the reconstruction of their Brooklyn communities.

The artwork is on the Coney Island boardwalk. It also honors the spirit of the Brighton Beach, Manhattan Beach and Seagate communities.

The mural features hundreds of hand-crafted ceramic tiles.

Each was created as a form of art therapy by a senior affected by the storm.

The project was organized by the JASA Senior Alliance Senior Center and The Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island.
