A Brooklyn public housing complex hit hard by Hurricane Sandy is about to get some major funding to protect it from future storms.
The Coney Island Houses will receive $108 million.
Mayor Bill de Blasio and Senator Charles Schumer made the official announcement Friday and say the funds will be used for protective measures like lifting boilers.
The project will also serve as a model for other Housing Authority properties in low-lying areas.
In March, de Blasio and Schumer announced $100 million in federal funding would be used to replace the temporary boilers in housing projects hit by Sandy in 2012.
