THE BRONX - A City Island icon is holding a grand reopening exactly one year after it burned to the ground on the night Superstorm Sandy hit.
Tony's Pier, located at the end of City Island Avenue, went up in flames during the storm last October.
News 12 was at the scene as firefighters worked to put out the fire, but nothing was left of the restaurant that had served the community for more than 60 years.
Owners say it took $2 million over the past year to rebuild the restaurant from the ground up. Tony’s Pier also had to be raised 6 feet to meet new FEMA regulations.
Tony's Pier will be open for normal business to the public beginning this Thursday.
