In this Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012 photo, Ray Marten poses with the street number sign recovered from the ashes of his fire-destroyed home in the Belle Harbor section of the Queens borough of New York. Marten is thankful that his teenage children are alive. The three of them narrowly escaped a fire that swept through their community the night Superstorm Sandy slammed into the East Coast.
