The city is moving displaced residents from the area to available housing in the Southern Bronx and Harlem neighborhoods according to the WSJ and a NYPost article. I figured this would be the case.

Deal on Sandy Housing - WSJ.com

"We need to get people in homes, as opposed to hotel rooms," said Ron Moelis, a principal at L+M Development Partners. Mr. Moelis said he will offer about 170 units in his buildings primarily in northern Manhattan and the South Bronx."

Interestingly, L&M Development Partners has developed major market rate and affordable housing properties in the Southern Bronx and Harlem which are actually quite nice, and continue to do so:

New Developments

I wonder what will be the reaction of people being dropped into these communities overwhelmingly of color???

I think it is people from anywhere in NYC who were displaced, so theoretically Financial District/Downtown Manhattan, parts of Brooklyn, etc, so that would include Breezy Point and Sea Gate, although I think those last 2 would rather sleep on the streets in Breezy Point than an apt in the Southern Bronx, even if it's just for a few weeks.(but that's just my opinion).

I'm sure the good people of Breezy and Sea gate, wouldn't mind sharing a neighborhood with blacks and hispanics up in the 'Southern' Bronx.
Maybe they'll make Mott haven private too!

The nice people from breeze and sea gate will be thrilled to share buildings, streets, stores and more with colored people. I'm sure they are looking foward to being closer to Manhattan and embracing the diversity of a working class neighborhood like the ones you find in the 'southern' Bronx.

they're going to have to learn how
to put up with mediocre people that
they most likely considered beneath
them.

they might as well keep a positive attitude
about it tho. that way people won't get hurt.

lots of people are already frustrated, so no
use letting it drive them crazy or crazier.
