Storm-damaged homes to be razed

NEW YORK — The city is moving to demolish hundreds of homes in neighborhoods hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy, after an assessment of the storm-ravaged coast found that many structures were so damaged they pose a danger to public safety and other buildings nearby. About 200 homes will be bulldozed in the coming days, almost all of them one- and two-family houses on Staten Island, in Queens, and Brooklyn. That is in addition to 200 houses already in ruins and slated to be cleared. (New York Times)
