After Sandy, hospitals and clinics were shut down, and patients had to travel long distances to see a doctor. Many Brooklyn doctors also lost equipment worth thousands, if not hundreds of thousands. FEMA — and one Bay Ridge physician in particular — are trying to help.

It’s an age-old story: after finally finding a parking spot, you come back to a ticket for an expired meter. After months of local Bay Ridge businesses and Community Board 10 leaders requesting a change, drivers are getting a break as New York City installs new parking meters that increase parking time limits from one-hour to two-hour parking meters to shop in Bay Ridge’s commercial businesses. This planned change along 3rd and 5th Avenues is considered a positive improvement by Bay Ridge businesses and their customers.
