Thanksgiving a bright spot for struggling Staten Island Sandy victims – Rep. Grimm on recovery efforts

More than three weeks since Superstorm Sandy hit the North East, many neighborhoods are still facing a long path to recovery. The struggle to clean up continues in storm ravaged communities, an especially difficult task for families during the holidays—many now homeless.

New York City announced plans to demolish 200 homes that sustained the worst storm damage, including some on Staten Island. Republican Congressman Michael Grimm is focused on rebuilding his district, which covers Staten Island. Congressman Grimm comes to “Starting Point” with the struggle for recovery after Hurricane Sandy.
