Beachcomber Bar and Grill owner Mike Carbone has high hopes for the 2013 summer season.
The boardwalk outside is still missing, but work to replace it will soon begin. Houses throughout the borough are in disrepair, but residents and property owners are back, rebuilding. Businesses are hurting, but one by one they're opening, preparing for a return to normal. As reconstruction of Seaside Heights continues, Carbone is excited at the town's prospects moving forward.
