Haggerty speaks with Charles (Chandler has his last name and contact info) of NYC Housing Preservation & Development.
Missy Haggerty shows a reporter around the largely abandoned row o houses where she lives. The houses were flooded during hurricane Sandy, and while some have been raised to prevent future flooding, several have remained vacant and untouched since their residents fled in October 2012.
Squatters have occasionally used some of the vacant homes as places to sleep and apparently use drugs.
