This edition: Building Back After Superstorm Sandy

Episode Details

Original tape date: October 31, 2016.

First aired: November 2, 2016.

On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we discuss why the Build It Back program is failing short of its mandate. Four years after Superstorm Sandy devastated Far Rockaway, there are still thousands who cannot return home. These sometimes homeless and hapless residents are still searching for answers as they deal with the storm’s lingering economic and emotional effects.
