Staten Islanders Stand Their Ground


Beacon of Hope New York, a grassroots Sandy recovery group, is handing out lawn signs to let homeowners tell the city they’re staying put in their beach communities.
“Basically the signs are a message to say, ‘We are staying. We are going to rejuvenate the community, and we are coming back stronger than ever,’ ” said Stacey Sclafani, the treasurer and one of the founders of Beacon of Hope New York.
