NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says $6.2 million in grants will help repair 16 historic properties badly damaged by Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

The properties include the Fraunces (FRAHN’-sehs) Tavern museum in Manhattan. It was a gathering place for Revolutionary War-era patriots such as George Washington, Alexander Hamilton and John Adams.

Another grant will aid the Old Westbury Gardens. It’s considered a premier example of a Long Island “Gold Coast” country estate.

In addition to Manhattan and Long Island, the list includes historic properties in Brooklyn, Staten Island and Westchester County.
