BROOKLYN - Volunteers spent Saturday sweeping and shoveling up trash in the streets of Coney Island.

The nonprofit group Brooklyn Community Services and others decided to do something about the neighborhood's streets, many of which were still damaged and dirty from Superstorm Sandy.

The volunteers started at Stillwell Avenue and worked their way down to Mermaid Avenue.

The group's work will continue Sunday. They will be handing out more than 100 trees to members of the community to help replace those lost during Superstorm Sandy.
