GERRITSEN BEACH - Coastal communities still recovering from Sandy held walks this morning, urging politicans to "walk a mile in their shoes" and approve a large relief package to help them rebuild.

A $51 billion Sandy relief package is set to be voted on by Congress this week. Residents at the walk in Gerritsen Beach say their community needs the help, especially since many have had trouble paying for repairs.

Congress already passed a $9.7 billion relief package, but politicians say that's only a portion of what's needed to help the area recover.
