If you suffered the indignities that those directly affected by Hurricane Sandy, you should have compassion for them!

Your photo clearly show the specific cause of the devastation in Sea Gate. In the 1970's the army corps greatly extended the 37th street jetty. This caused a build up of sand in Coney Island and starved the sea gate beaches. It was an expected consequence at the time but because. Sea Gate was "private" the corps was not allowed to expend public monies to benefit private property.

Because FEMA sees a big quality of life issue they can order the Army Corp to help usinf the Stafford act.>>>
"The Stafford Act gives FEMA the authority to take short-term action, in conjunction with the Army Corps, to protect vulnerable beach communities with "nourishment" programs"

Our home in Belle Harbor NY has been leveled, We lost everything...all our possessions. We need a retaining wall to protect our community and enable us to rebuild our home once again.As of now nothing has been done to assure us of a safe shoreline.. Please do something so we can restore our beautiful neighborhood..

How can they not help those that are in such great need? This is not how we were raised. Brooklyn is my Forever Home. How can they let such Treasure Go Unaided? Wake Up New York and Tri State Area This Is Our Home......

Susie - My wife Sharon and I were on the beach the day after the storm. When I saw your house, I was heartbroken ... then I saw Kenny's house behind yours and couldn't believe it. I'm not sure if you remember me, but my ex-wife Helen and I used to hang out with you and Jerry, your sister and Josh and the Hellman's WAY back in the early 70's.

If nothing else, Sandy proved the rock jetties preserve our beaches and protect the boardwalk and homes from the worst devastation. Rock jetties should run the whole length of the beaches. Residents have said this for years but instead, the army corps continue to pump sand onto the beach from off shore which costs millions and are only temporary solutions.

Yes, vocal, outspoken and in the public eye. Good job Stan. Hope all will do their share and not wait for the next person to do something. Complaining takes effort...more effort than making POSITIVE noise for our community..." We are here, making positive noise, asking for help" All thank you for all you have done...All should climb aboard the Stan train. The list of who to write to was handed out and posted by you. All must start to write, make that positive noise..."We will not be ignored" AGAIN?

I lost my home & everything I own, I am also displaced & have been since sandy struck. I yearn to be part of a community again, so far no one wants people from sandy, that's what I'm being told when looking for an apartment outside rockaway.
