    Sorry Sukana, but your story is Wrong. 6 months after Sandy, one would think you'd get the story right. Those vacant lots on Cedar Grove Ave are vacant because the houses collapsed from the storm and were cleared of debris for safety reasons, NOT because the owners chose the buyout. ND Beach is Not part of the State buyout program. The 1 and only neighborhood that is so far 'enhanced' and therefore eligible for the NYS buyout is Oakwood Beach, a/k/a Foxbeach.

    Allie is right! Oakwood's buyout eligibility is all over the internet – any layperson could find that information. The fact that Cedar Grove Avenue in New Dorp Beach was mistaken for Oakwood Beach is just lazy, irresponsible reporting. Many people in NDB want the buyout, but are being given the runaround by the city, state, and Fema. I can't help but feel like this adds insult to injury.
