Angry New Yorkers Confront Mayor Bloomberg About Hurricane Sandy Aid

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was confronted by angry citizens, on Saturday, while visiting a neighborhood in Rockaway, Queens that had been ravaged by Hurricane Sandy.

One woman yelled: "When are we going to get some f****** help?"

An angry man told Mayor Bloomberg: "There’s old ladies in my building that don’t got nothing. Mr. Bloomberg, this is the first drop off site. Over the bridge we can't get a bottle of water, a hot chocolate, a coffee, nothing."

The confrontations were recorded by NY 1 TV, who happened to be in the neighborhood, reports the Daily Mail.

Mayor Bloomberg told the angry citizens: "You know, we're trying to do it as fast as we can."

He told WCBS-TV that he regretted canceling he New York Marathon: "I still think that we had the resources to do both, and that we want people to be able to take a break and that sort of thing. ... It's a big part of our economy."
