It’s been 2 1/2 years and I (and others in the Rockaways are still suffering effects of Super storm Sandy. Namely, the mold that has been allowed to fester in abandoned buildings not cleaned since the storm. Other like me who’s immune system has been weakened thru Cancer, asthma, etc. continue to suffer from the toxins we are exposed to daily. Not everyone is so affected but to those of us who are, it is a very debilitating illness.
I have had to take the 2 Banks to court, who are involved, hire attorneys and spend a large sum of money trying to protect my health and the health of others in my neighborhood who are similarly affected. It Has forced my family to vacate our home when the mold smell from the house next door is at it’s worse. It is shameful that more is not being done to address this problem by the “powers that be” who have the ability to get changes done if only they had the willingness to do so and help the public.
