Yesterday, Mayor Bill DeBlasio visited our district, on Knickerbocker Avenue in Bushwick, which was flooded by a torrential downpour that flooded streets and homes all over the city of New York. While I was in Albany voting to pass urgent legislation, our staff joined the mayor, other local elected officials and community members. We were all informed that assistance is available for you, our constituents and neighbors in Brooklyn who have been impacted by this storm. The city is currently working with federal agencies on disaster declarations to bring more Relief Aid.
