Faces of the Voted: The Rockaways, Queens
“Here in the Rockaways, people are voting in the dark. There are no lights, there is no heat.”
It was how NPR’s Robert Smith described the situation at the polls early this morning, in the Rockaways, which is in one of the regions hardest hit by Sandy’s wrath. Of the 38 polling stations relocated in Queens, 23 are here — in tents, outdoors, running on generators, or some without heat at all.
