NYC To End Sandy Hotel Deal

The city says it will no longer shell out cash for a program that houses people displaced by Superstorm Sandy in hotels. FEMA has been reimbursing NYC for the emergency housing measure, but the federal agency is cutting off aid at the end of the month, which is expected to affect about 350 people. City lawyers tried to shut down the program in May, but a judge issued an injunction, extending it. The rooms costs around $266 a night according to the Associated Press. That’s expensive. There are much cheaper options out there. (Photo: Aymann Ismail/ANIMALNewYork)
