The elevators don't work in the building and she depends on the kindness of neighbors to bring her food and necessities. She said she requested to the housing authority to have the ceiling re-painted six months ago. Hundreds of Ocean Bay residents remain without heat or electricity eleven days after Superstorm Sandy struck. 53 New York City public housing buildings remain without power and 113 public housing buildings still don’t have heat in the wake of the storm.
