Mayor Bloomberg Booed at St. Patrick’s Day Parade Through the Rockaways

Mayor  Bloomberg was dogged by jeers as he marched in a St. Patrick’s Day parade  through the Rockaways, booed by some residents frustrated with the city’s  response to Hurricane Sandy.

The parade was a welcome break for the Queens neighborhoods devastated by  the storm but the dozens of boarded-up businesses and damaged homes along the  route were a symbol of the work that still needed to be done — and the raw  feelings of the locals.

“I booed loudly,” said Margaret Wagner, 48. “We had no food, no shelter. People  died here, and Bloomberg was on TV talking about a marathon. It’s appalling.”
