MYFOXNY.COM -

On Monday, Fox 5 reporter Joel Waldman was assigned to cover Hurricane Sandy from Howard Beach in Queens. Hours after arriving, he and his crew found themselves in a nearly deadly situation.

With waters rising fast, they were trapped with several dozen people in the Surfside Motel on Cross Bay Boulevard. The water was surging and seemed ready to engulf the entire building.

But everyone stayed calm the entire time and really helped each other out. And no one was hurt.

The move is not allowed under NYPD policy.  Miller was expected to meet with Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson on Tuesday to seek charges against police.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    NYC woman finds wedding dress lost after Sandy

    When a New York City dry cleaners was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy, the only item to survive was Nicole Pagliaro's wedding dress. But her name was lost to owner Hector Pacheco, who reopened after more than a year and in a new location. Pagliaro had brought the dress to him after her 2012 wedding. When the storm swamped and shuttered the Staten Island store, she assumed it was lost. But two weeks ago, she took a different route to work and spotted it in the window.
