Residents, leaders fed up with slow Sandy repairs

New York City Housing Authority residents and local leaders are voicing their anger and disappointment with NYCHA's slow pace of repairs following Superstorm Sandy, but NYCHA says the work is well on its way.



The Coney Island Houses Tenants Association president says Mayor Bill de Blasio came to Coney Island in 2014 and promised that the development would be the first one repaired. Residents say changes have not been made.



NYCHA officials say funding was only received in December 2015. 



Tenants and local leaders say they hope to see workers on the ground very soon.



NYCHA officials say construction at all 33 developments throughout the city is expected to be completed by 2021.
