Sandy-damaged NYC homes up for auction: See houses in Staten Island, Queens, Brooklyn

More than three years ago, superstorm Sandy devastated homes across the Northeast, many of them right here in New York City.

In the aftermath of Sandy, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Office of Storm Recovery was tasked with purchasing damaged homes in an effort to help rebuilding efforts within some of the city’s hard-hit communities.

Now, New York state has teamed up with Paramount Realty USA to auction dozens of homes in Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn for less than their pre-storm values.

With bids starting as low as $14,650, these Sandy-damaged homes might just be your opportunity to plant new roots in New York City at a much lower cost.

The auction will take place at the Hilton Garden Inn, located at 1100 South Ave., in Staten Island on Tuesday, May 10, 2016.
