On Dec. 20, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began demolishing houses severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy.  Working in Staten Island, Larry Kelley, resident engineer of the Army Corp of Engineers, estimates that some 400 buildings will be torn down. A family’s home on Kissam Avenue was the first to be removed.
