Greenwich Patch: With temperatures in the 40s made cooler by a brisk breeze under partly sunny skies, Greenwich officials joked they were embarking on the proverbial “3-hour tour” of television’s “Gilligan’s Island.”
In reality, it was a 90-minute tour of Greenwich’s Island Beach to view the devastation of Hurricane Sandy on Friday [November 16]. Clad in winter jackets, hats, gloves and scarves, First Selectman Peter Tesei, Selectman Drew Marzullo, and Board of Estimate and Taxation Budget Committee members Republican Joseph Pellegrino (the committee chair) and Democrat William Finger, saw for the first time, the damage the town must decide how to repair. Parks and Recreation Director Joe Siciliano and Marine Division operations manager Craig Whitcomb led the tour.
