After Sandy, a Staten Island resident says he's in survival mode, living without electricity and patrolling his block for robbers. He stays out each night to guard his community. "I want to protect what little we have," Joe Ingenito tells Anderson Cooper.
Ingenito has lived there for 20 years and plans to rebuild. Asked what it's like to see his neighborhood in shambles, he says, "It breaks my heart."
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
