Seven NYC Restoration centers in total will be opened in New York’s hardest hit neighborhoods, and the Far Rockaway, Gravesend, Coney Island and Staten Island locations were launched today. The Red Hook, Breezy Point and Throgs Neck-Pelham Bay centers are set to open later in the week. Read on to see where you can find the locations closest to you.
