Sandy-Battered Rockaways Residents Boo Schumer and Bloomberg

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013

Hecklers in the Rockaways, battered by Superstorm Sandy, booed Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Sen. Chuck Schumer at the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade Sunday.

“For the politicians to come down here and try to take our celebration and make it their thing . . . it’s disgusting,” one resident told the New York Post.

“Let’s hear it for the Rockaways,” said Schumer, who was met with a response of, “Send money, pal. Send money! Talk is cheap!”
