BRIGHTON BEACH - Toppled trees still line the streets of Brooklyn Wednesday, four days after a powerful storm slammed the borough.
Several homes have been deemed unsafe after large trees fell through the roofs. The Parks Department says it has received 1,200 calls about fallen trees. More than half of those calls were about trees which had fallen onto homes.
Crews are working to repair the damage but say clearing the roadways is their first priority. Some homes have been deemed emergency situations and will receive help immediately.
In addition to city crews, the Parks Department has also hired private contractors to help speed up the response to the immense damage.
