CONEY ISLAND - A Coney Island church that has been assisting people since Superstorm Sandy now needs help to fix its damaged building.

Coney Island Tabernacle Church was wiped out when Sandy barreled through the borough, and the pastor says the building sustained about $73,000 worth of damage. The pastor says a city inspector put a stop work order on the building last week because it needs a permit.

Now, the pastor says it will cost about $6,000 to hire an architect to get the permit.

The Department of Buildings has yet to return calls for comment.
