WHY are the barrier islands off the NYC cost being reconstructed?

They did their job and if had not been populated there would be little damage to the islands.

So why are they populated/reconstructed?

it is on your dime if you want to rebuild on or near water.

do not look for federal assistance to build on what one day will be an ocean again.

Hey no problem. Bloomberg will just find something else to tax to cover the cost. How about a $5.00 tax on every pack of chewing gum to help pay for all the cleanup of those islands, and of course, gum that gets stuck on the hooves of mounted patrol horses.

SCREW THE EAST COAST... When Minnesota had a devasting tornado, flood, or other catastrophe, ZERO DOLLARS came from the EAST COAST.

I hope that the FREEZE, SUFFER, DIE, LOSE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, due to their EXTREME IGNORANCE, TRIBALISM, and STUPIDITY.

Yup, remember when Duluth was damaged this summer the Feds didn't provide 100% of repair cost.

Yet NYC is requesting 100% coverage.

I'd say remove all houseing from the barrier islands OR mandate those who insist on living there buy insurance coverage for 100% of their losses. AND build the houses to withstand wind and water equal to Sandy's.

Like, DUH.... Even PETA and other groups attacked Duluth, like the ZOO, because a dozen GOATS DIED.

As far as I know, the STUPID FEDS didn't pay SQUAT to Duluth when THEY got FLOODED OUT. The Feds told MN, "eat shat". Too bad, so sad.

So NOW, MN has to eat the costs of it's OWN FLOODS,**AND**, it should contribute to the recovery of the NJ/NY coast.

SMD, and ES.
