I am a lifelong, born and raised Brigantine resident, and proud of it! I love this community and the people in it. I would never want to live anywhere else, not even after Superstorm Sandy. As we were cleaning out our flood damaged home, I was so impressed and thankful for the countless friends and even complete strangers who stopped by with an endless supply of sandwiches, coffee and kind words.
