Elijah Jones, 23, sits in his room on the fourth floor of the Redfern Houses. Since the storm, water has condensed on the walls and ceiling because his room is so cold, and mold is starting to grow on his walls. Every day he tries to clean the moisture from his room, but the water keeps coming back. “That’s the only light we got,” he says pointing to a spotlight on a generator in the courtyard. “We just got that like three days ago.” (photo: Finlay MacKay for TIME )

For many in Sandy’s path, the storm itself was terrifying. On Staten Island, houses collapsed, crushing people underneath; in Breezy Point, families fled blocks of homes in flames. But in Redfern, the real struggle began the next day, when it became clear that power wouldn’t return for weeks.
