CONEY ISLAND - Almost one year after Sandy, recovery efforts continue on Coney Island, with the help of a nonprofit group called Rebuilding Together New York City.
The group, funded by the American Red Cross, offers free home repairs for low-income homeowners. The project brought more than 200 volunteers to Coney Island today as they helped fix storm-damaged homes, a community center and a co-op building.
"There's a belief that New Yorkers don't care, but when we are faced with adversity, we pull together our resources and try to help those in need," says volunteer John Rivera.
