In Brighton Beach, much of the human damage from Sandy was hidden. Undocumented immigrants, driven out of illegal basement apartments, suffered in the shadows.

City Limits snagged two awards at last weeks Ippies, the annual contest for the city’s ethnic and community press. Batya Ungar-Sargon took third place in the Best Story on an Immigrant Community Category for “After the Flood, Brighton’s Latinos Struggle in the Shadows,” and Ruth Ford won third in the Best story on a Social Issue category for “Hospitals Face Pressure, Six in Brooklyn Could Close.”

You can hear Ruth discuss the threats facing Brooklyn hospitals today at 3 p.m. on Talk Back with Hugh Hamilton on WBAI 99.5 FM.
