Faces of Sandy: Johnnie McQueen

It took eight months for Johnnie McQueen, 53, and his family to move back into their two-family Far Rockaway home after the first floor took on four feet of water. At the same time, McQueen lost his job at an autobody shop. Though he's still recovering financially, he said he would never move away from the home because it's so close to the beach.
