Some residents in Parkchester are still struggling with the aftermath of Ida, with many of them saying they have to pay out of pocket for the damages. 
Resident Danny Dyal says the floors of his basement are covered in water and dirt. He says his furniture is ruined and that his water boiler is also destroyed. 
He says he’s had to throw out most of their belongings. He says his house, along with several homes on Leland Avenue, was hit hard by the remnants of the tropical storm. 
Now, they’ve been fixing and paying for the damages out of their pocket because they say they’ve received no help from the city or their insurance company. 
Dyal tells News 12 the entire intersection was flooded Wednesday night with at least 2 feet of water, but the city hasn’t come by since to clear out the storm drains. 
News 12 reached out to the city to get an update on recovery efforts and has not heard back yet.
