ISLAND PARK - With cold weather descending across Long Island, some in Island Park are forced to live in trailers, months after their homes were damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

Many homes along Waterford Road remain cold more than two months after the storm came ashore.

Some homeowners say that renting the trailers is a cheaper alternative to the high cost of renting an apartment for their family. However, they say the trailers lack many conveniences and are a tight squeeze.
