Over 2,000 people lined up to apply for the possible hundreds of job openings that were available at Wednesday's Job Fair. The community room was filled with government employers such as the NYPD, MTA, Parks Department, and NYPL. There were also many private companies and non-profits with job openings. The photos below should tell the rest of the story.
