After Sandy, only a lucky few getting buyouts

In this Oct. 2, 2013 photo, homeowner and long-time Staten Island resident Joe Monte stands beside the gate to his property and the dream house, right, he abandoned after it was severely damaged in Superstorm Sandy, in New York. Traumatized by damage the storm did to his home and the death of fellow Oakwood Beach residents, he welcomes the buyout of his house and says returning the area to nature will give him some solace over what was lost. Oakwood Beach is the first and only Sandy-damaged neighborhood in New York City to be completely bought out under a state program that selects the most damaged flood-prone communities and offers residents the full, pre-storm value of their homes.
