From the Daily News:
When Stan Pryor and his pregnant wife boarded a bus out of New Orleans in late 2005, they hoped that wherever they were headed would be better than the devastation Hurricane Katrina left behind. They were wrong.
That bus ride landed the homeless couple in Queens, where they lived first in a hotel, then in a flat provided by a church parish before the city finally placed them in an apartment in the basement of a house in Jamaica.
The last straw came in late June, when the city Buildings Department declared the apartment uninhabitable and ordered Stan, 65, and Lisa Pryor, 43, and their 3-year-old daughter to leave.
