Home by Christmas


Hurricane Sandy hit this city two years ago today. But for too many New Yorkers, the effects of the storm are still an everyday reality.

When I took office, I found a stalled recovery program that, more than a year after the storm, had yet to begin construction on a single home. Since then, we’ve overhauled the Build It Back recovery program and made incredible progress – and we’ll continue to speed up relief until every homeowner is served.
