NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Members of the de Blasio administration and victims of Superstorm Sandy spent Monday morning testifying at a City Council oversight hearing about post-storm recovery efforts in New York City.
Seventeen months after the storm hit, hundreds of homes across the city still haven’t been repaired.
“All I want to do is have my home,” Breezy Point resident Roland Gorton said. “I’m hoping they can help me get back into my house so I can be whole again.”
Gorton testified Monday at a hearing on the city’s “Build it Back” program that is supposed to help Sandy-impacted homeowners repair and rebuild.
