RED HOOK - Catalog photos featuring Sandy-battered beaches have stirred up some backlash for a Brooklyn-based clothing chain.

Some people have blasted Brooklyn Industries for not planning to share the profits with the still-struggling community of Red Hook.

Owner Lexy Funk says her stores stepped up after the storm.

"During Sandy, we collected the equivalent of an 18-wheeler truck of food and supplies through our Brooklyn Industries stores," she said.

Funk adds that exploitation was never the intention, and that there's likely more the company can do to help.
