Burglars target Sandy victims in the Rockaways
Joseph SernaWhere many saw tragedy for New Yorkers still homeless from Superstorm Sandy over the Thanksgiving holiday, others apparently saw opportunity.
Adding to the woes of those who live on the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens — where the storm killed eight people and destroyed more than 100 homes — thieves burglarized at least three residences in a Breezy Point neighborhood last week, police confirmed Saturday.
Many of those who survived Sandy have been staying with friends, family or at relief shelters during the week and returning to the Rockaways on weekends to pick up what remains of their lives. When families returned after the holiday, some found even less than what was there before.
