WNBC reporter Jonathan Vigliotti spent the night with a family in Breezy Point, Queens, where a large portion of the residents are still without power, heat or running water a month after Hurricane Sandy (video above).
Vigliotti bunked with a couple and their dog, who have been sleeping in sleeping bags, using lanterns for light and flushing their toilets with bottled water. Many homes in the Breezy Point neighborhood were destroyed when a fire ripped through the town during the Hurricane, but Vigliotti reports the residents still have a positive attitude.
“They realize they have lost so much, but they are fortunate, they say,” he said.
