The Sandy victims have formed a community here, waving to one another as they walk through the lobby to their rooms, sneaking out for cigarettes together and offering rides to people who need them. On a recent afternoon, a white box filled with cookies and cannoli was passed around for someone's birthday.Burstein, 69, who is on disability, and her 37-year-old daughter â¿¿ who doesn't work because her 3-year-old disabled son recently had surgery â¿¿ have been living here since early December. Like many other storm victims, they can't find an affordable rental. Even if they did find one, they barely have enough money for a security deposit.
