A Brooklyn home damaged by Hurricane Sandy now has a new lease on life.
Twenty volunteers, including some from the Sandy relief organization "Resurrection Brooklyn," helped with repair work at a home on Batchelder Street in Sheepshead Bay.
They spent the day painting and installing fixtures, to the delight of the homeowner, Angela Narcisco.
"Everything, they did everything. The ceilings, the walls, the floors. They put in cabinets. They did my whole bathroom, bathroom sink, shower. They did everything," Narcisco said.
"When some of that paint's being done, when some the finished works being done, when you pull up some of the cleanup material and the floor is there and it looks like a home again. It's absolutely just such a relief," said volunteer Matthew Wemple.
Last month, the Red Cross granted $250,000 dollars to Resurrection Brooklyn to help repair 42 homes damaged by Sandy.
