SEAGATE - While the Seagate community continues to recoverfrom Sandy, one neighbor is making a big difference in the cleanup efforts.

As a licensed contractor, Manny Garafalo volunteered many hours of his free time to help clean up any area in Seagate that needed his services.

Residents in the area say that Sandy was the worst natural disaster the neighborhood has ever seen, but the hard work Garafalo and countless other neighbors have done lets them know Seagate will be back and better than ever very soon.
