Looking Back: Blaze Destroys at Least 80 Homes in Breezy Point

A raging fire destroyed at least 80 homes in Breezy Point, Queens before firefighters, some battling flames while standing neck deep in floodwaters, got it under control.

One Month Later: Breezy Point

Life in many hard hit areas following Sandy will never be the same. Breezy Point is a neighborhood that drowned and burned, but somehow survived. We are taking you inside the disaster zone to show you how people are doing one month later. It is dark, cold and it's where we sent News 4's Jonathan Vigliotti who is spending the night there to show us the experience first hand.

Irish pride was on display in the Rockaways although the area is still suffering from the effects of Sandy.
 
Thousands of people marched through the Rockaways on Saturday in the annual Queens County St. Patrick's Day Parade.

The parade is one of several that take place every year in the five boroughs.
 
The Rockaway peninsula of Queens includes several heavily Irish-American neighborhoods that were devastated when Sandy struck on Oct. 29.
 
Saturday's parade went through some blocks in the Belle Harbor area where fires caused by the storm reduced houses to charred shells.
 
The parade also passed a block of burned stores in Rockaway Park.
 
Marchers included Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
