THE BRONX - The city has released details about how recovery efforts have progressed in the nearly one year since Superstorm Sandy.
Officials said during a press conference Tuesday that they recognize people across the city are still recovering from last October’s storm, and they are working as quickly as possible to help.
They highlighted some areas of improvement, including the rebuilding of the Steeple Chase Pier in Coney Island and Floyd Bennett Field.
City officials also spoke about the NYC Built it Back program, which uses federal funds to give people the option of fixing up their damaged homes or leaving them to start over. Mayor Michael Bloomberg revealed earlier this month that about 23,000 New Yorkers had already signed up.
