Staten Island Sandy victims pack New York City Town Hall, November 29, 2012. More than 1,000 people went to New Dorp High School to ask FEMA and other agencies what to do about their damaged homes and neighborhoods.
People were turned away at door and could not fit into auditorium.
Nicole Chati of New Dorp Beach said,
These people are frustrated, Lives were lost. My house — I can rebuild the house. My neighbor is dead.”
Tom Saglembeni of New Dorp Beach exclaimed,
What’s gonna happen to our neighborhood? Are they condemning our neighborhood?”
Scott and Deirdre McGrath injected,
I’m homeless. My home has no gas, water, sewage, but yet I’m still sleeping in there. I have dust and mold that he [Department of Health NYC] is telling me to avoid, where am I supposed to go? I’ve gone to FEMA, SBA, apartments.com, Robert Defalco Realty. I’ve gone to news, I still cannot find an apartment, where am I supposed to live? I feel just as lost as I did before I came here.”
Other people yelled,
I have a question!” “No one is doing what’s right for us!” “You’re a piece of crap!” “Don’t run around and pass the buck, from the FEMA guy to Department of Buildings guy. Help us, answer our questions.”
