Here is my latest Report from Rockaway. This video report, my third from Rockaway, provides an update on some of the ongoing relief efforts and gives a glimpse of how residents are working their way back one month after Sandy.
Here are two notable quotes.
From a relief worker describing how donors can provide useful donations: if you’re “walking down the grocery aisle, imagine coming home and everything’s gone … replenishing that stuff” is what’s needed.
From an optimistic resident who says that they are doing well: “the only thing most people are missing is the heat.”
