If you take a look at the residential sales over the months following Hurricane Sandy, you can see that the storm definitely had an impact on the amount of homes being sold. In November of 2012, home sales had dropped almost 15%. The next month seemed to make up for the lack of homes being sold, with 244 home sales—an increase of over 34%.
After December, however, there seemed to be a steady decline in the number of homes being sold. By March of 2013, that steady decline showed up at 20% from the beginning of the year, with only 179 homes being sold. However, this seems to be rather normal for the number of homes being sold in March, though that number has been steadily decreasing over the past four years.

Before the mid-nineteenth century the neighborhood of Huguenot was originally known as Bloomingview. Huguenot got its name from the many Huguenots, members of the Protestant Reformed Church of France that had moved to the area. The Huguenots were being prosecuted in France for not converting to Catholicism during the mid-to-late seventeenth century, so many of them fled to America.
By 1851, the Huguenots had established and built their first church in Bloomingview, called “The Brown Church” or “The Church of the Huguenots”. The church had caught on fire in 1918 and was rebuilt on the site that it sits on now, in 1924. Today, this church is a New York City Landmark and is known as The Reformed Church of Huguenot Park.

The neighborhood of Huguenot began to be established in the middle of the seventeenth century. At this time, the area was known as Bloomingview. Pierre Billiou and his wife Francoise were some of the first Huguenots to settle on Staten Island. Huguenots were people that were a part of the Protestant Reformed Church of France. At that time, their people were being prosecuted for not converting to Catholicism and those who were lucky enough fled their homeland for America.
By 1849, there were many Huguenots living in Bloomingview and, thanks to religious freedom, the Church of the Huguenots was established. Just two years later, the church was built and was known as “The Brown Church” or “The Church of the Huguenots”. By 1918, the church…

The Staten Island neighborhood of Westerleigh became a popular place a couple of decades after the formation of the Prohibition Party in 1869. Around the late 1880s, twenty-five acres of the current Westerleigh neighborhood became home to the National Prohibition Campground Association, also known as Prohibition Park. Prohibition Park started off as a campground with some recreational facilities for its visitors. Soon, people began to settle there instead of having to visit.
In the early twentieth century, the neighborhood of Westerleigh started to become more a residential area. As a result, the National Prohibition Campground Association started building homes and transferred some of their land to the City of New York. By the mid-1900s,…

When you look at the numbers, one thing has become clear: the real estate market locally has stabilized after 5+ years of some of the most tumultuous times in American history. By no means was it an easy go of it locally—especially after Hurricane Sandy made it to our shoreline back in October of last year.
The impacts of the hurricane were clearly evidenced in home sale numbers for this past November, a month after the storm. With just 182 home sales, it was a drop of over 14% from the prior month, and a whopping 33% from a year prior. However, a brighter side emerged after the storm, rebounding a little over 32% in December.
All in all, it was enough to put the market as a whole above 2011 in many facets and it’s the first time the…
