New Homes Built on Long Island After Hurricane Sandy

Gotham Builders completes project to help build elevated homes in preparation for future hurricanes.

Freeport, NY, August 13, 2014 --( New York Rising had a good idea. In order to prevent the terrible damage wrought by the infamous hurricane in the future, they recommended either putting an existing home on a raised structure or building new homes higher. Gotham Builders put this plan into action and came to the rescue in Island Park, as well as other Long Island areas.

Anthony, a resident of Island Park and a hurricane victim, said, "I've been out of my house since Irene, and I'm finally moving back into a home that is elevated. My home is safe if another Sandy or Irene happens. Hey, thanks Gotham and New York Rising for giving my family our home back."

Anthony's home had more than 50 percent damage, and the house had to be torn down. With Gotham's expert on-staff architect, Gaby Tchilinguirian, they designed the perfect plan for New York Rising and local building departments to approve the creation of a new home for him – a safe place to live which could withstand another Sandy.

The process is long and complex, yet changes are occurring all across Long Island's shores. Fortunately for homeowners, Gotham Builders is making it happen. Whether it's to build a new home, raise a home or remodel an existing home, call Gotham today at 1-800-444-4923, and visit their website at
