President Obama Thursday toured city neighborhoods where Hurricane Sandy’s ferocity was greatest, praising the city’s resiliency while pledging federal assistance to those whose lives were forever changed by the killer storm.
“I’m very proud of you, New York,” Obama said after walking through a Staten Island neighborhood that was devastated by the historic hurricane. “You guys are tough. You bounce back.’
After taking an aerial tour of Brooklyn and Queens, Obama met with dozens of Staten Island residents whose homes were swamped or entirely destroyed by the storm — and one couple who lost even more.
