Robert Martin, a Lawrence High School graduate, returned to his hometown of Inwood after Superstorm Sandy hit to document the damage left in its wake .
He shot and edited his footage into a seven-minute film, "Inwood Diaries," and put it on YouTube (above) so others could see the devastation left behind by the storm.
“I wanted to help my friends out,” Martin told the Nassau Herald. “I have a lot of roots to Inwood and I’m still proud to be from there.”
Martin, who graduated high school in 1990, currently works as a cameraman and editor for the Manhattan-based Indemand LLC.
