A homeowner from Canarsie received nearly $50,000 in home repairs as part of a renovation program by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development.
Cathie Wright-Lewis says the upgrades to her home kept her from moving.
"My kids are older now, so I was thinking I don't know, maybe I'll sell," Wright-Lewis say. "It's a whole lot of work, but they made it a whole lot easier, so I think I'm going to stay around for a while."
