Con Ed sets up customer service posts in Brooklyn, Queens and SI

Con Edison says it has command posts set up at seven locations in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island to assist customers who had electrical equipment damage by Superstorm Sandy. 

Meanwhile, Con Edison says it restored electricity to 98 percent of homes and businesses in New York City and Westchester County. About 20,000 customers remain powerless.

The locations in the three boroughs are as follows: 

Brooklyn 

Gerritsen Avenue and Lois Street in Gerritsen Beach

Highland Avenue and Lyme Avenue in Seagate

Shore Boulevard and Mackenzie Street in Manhattan Beach

Voorhies Avenue and Ocean Avenue in Brighton Beach

 

Queens

Cross Bay Boulevard and East 9th Road in Broad Channel

Cross Bay Boulevard and 165th Avenue in Old Howard Beach

 

Staten Island 

Father Capodanno Boulevard and Hunter Avenue

Con Edison said inspectors are going door-to-door in flood-damaged areas to determine if customer equipment was damaged. If the utility company determines that a customer's equipment was not damaged, their service will be restored when the company re-energizes the affected area. 

A customer whose equipment has sustained water damage will need to have a private licensed electrician or plumber certify that the equipment can be safely energized according to Con Ed.

    Smoking rates on the rise in New York City

    Tuesday, September 16 2014 7:03 AM EDT2014-09-16 11:03:52 GMT
    For the first time in years, more than 1 million New Yorkers are smoking, marking a disturbing rise of tobacco use in the city that pioneered a number of anti-smoking initiatives that were emulated nationally.  Sixteen percent of adult New Yorkers smoked in 2013, up from 14 percent in 2010, which was the city's lowest recorded rate, according to the findings released by New York City's Department of Health.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    Monday, September 15 2014 10:28 PM EDT2014-09-16 02:28:27 GMT
    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
