As the flooding from Sandy subsided, Broad Channel residents found themselves in a decimated landscape. Homes, businesses and public lands were ravished by the floodwaters. Disaster relief was slow, with more immediate attention being given to the decimated Rockaway neighborhoods located just across the Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge. As residents left the area, heading to stay with friends and relatives for the indefinite future, signs sprung up around the neighborhood, giving words to the frustrations and grievances felt by so many of those affected by the storm.
