Bay Head

People Just Want to Go Home

Margaret (D’Arcy) Greene is a Councilwoman for the Borough of Bay Head, New Jersey. After travelling back and forth between New York, Hong Kong, and New Jersey for many years, Greene and her family decided to make Bay Head their permanent residence, as summers at the shore had always been an integral part of their lives. In her narratives, she discuses the struggle to balance her family responsibilities and the recovery of her own home with her responsibility to her town and state in the aftermath of the storm.
