The devastation from the storm will be felt in some neighborhoods for months, if not years. During this crisis, NY1 has heard so many stories of our fellow New Yorkers going above and beyond to help. So this week, we are honoring all of you. NY1's John Schiumo filed the following report.

When the storm moved in, you moved into action. When the waters rose, you rose to the challenge.

When the lights went dark, you didn't lose energy. You were without power, but not without strength.

Should we expect anything less from you, the residents of our city? Helping others isn't just in your job description. It's in your blood.

You were asked for patience, and sometimes you lost it. But you did not have to be asked to help. You found a way.

This week, we salute all of you. Your spirit is stronger than any storm. And that's why you are our New Yorkers of the Week.
