NYU Langone and Bellevue still recovering from Superstorm Sandy

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Roxanne Cordero still gets shaken when she thinks about how Superstorm Sandy impacted her family's life. Her son, Jeremiah, was just 2 weeks old and had just undergone open-heart surgery.

Sandy hit and NYU Langone hospital lost power. Backup generators died, and the hospital was forced to evacuate hundreds of patients including Jeremiah. He was transferred to Columbia Medical Center where he recovered.

Now a year later, he just celebrated his first birthday.

It has been a long road for NYU Langone and Bellevue Hospital, which also had to evacuate after Sandy hit.

NYU gave reporters a tour of its new emergency room that had to be rebuilt since Sandy.

Bellevue's repairs included moving its electrical power vault from the basement to the first floor.

However, the president of city hospitals is urging FEMA to provide money so the hospital can make more changes to prevent possible damage from future storms.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
