BROOKLYN - Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) has announced a revamp of a state program allowing some Hurricane Sandy victims to receive buyouts for their homes, but many residents say they plan to stay.

In Manhattan Beach, residents say there are a handful of homes that were put up for sale after the storm, but many are more interested in rebuilding.

In Gerritsen Beach, the idea is receiving more interest from residents, but many there too say they plan on staying, despite battles with insurance companies over reimbursements for damage.
