Battered by storm, Staten Islanders feel forgotten - Article Photos 17/26

Sandra Finnegan places a sign against the marathon in front of her brother's house, which was destroyed by Storm Sandy, in Staten Island, New York, Friday, Nov. 2, 2012. Mayor Michael Bloomberg has come under fire for pressing ahead with the New York City Marathon. Some New Yorkers say holding the 26.2-mile race would be insensitive and divert police and other important resources when many are still suffering from Superstorm Sandy. The course runs from the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge on hard-hit Staten Island to Central Park, sending runners through all five boroughs. The course will not be changed, since there was little damage along the route. ((AP Photo/Seth Wenig) ORG XMIT: NYSW122
