Lindenhurst families weigh costs, benefits of returning after Sandy

Lindenhurst families speak Wednesday, May 28, 2014, about the struggles they've faced in the 19 months since superstorm Sandy ravaged their neighborhood, and how their homes have still not been fully repaired. As New York Rising's offers for house elevations and buyouts are coming in, they are weighing the costs and benefits of staying versus leaving. Will the money will be enough? Can they envision life on a block that regularly floods, where the future is uncertain?  (Credit: Newsday / Chris Ware)
