Because we expect some people to continue to be without power this weekend, the library will be open on Sunday, November 3rd from 1 pm to 5 pm. Hat’s off to the staff of the Library for rearranging their schedules to accommodate “powerless” residents!
YOUR CHILD CAN STILL ENJOY HALLOWEEN TOMORROW EVENING IN AN INDOOR AND SAFE SETTING---
We hope you and your families are safe and sound in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Despite the loss of power and fallen trees in the local area, the community center remains open to residents. The Theodore Young Community Center is located on Manhattan Ave, across from the Crossroads shopping Center in Fairview (near the old A & P and future new supermarket).
we will still be having our annual Halloween Party tomorrow evening at 6:30pm. We encourage all parents and guardians to keep the youth off of the streets, which are likely to still be littered with storm debris tomorrow evening. Let’s celebrate Halloween together in a safe indoor space. TDYCC has planned Halloween tricks and treats for youth of ALL ages!
Face Painting, Trick or Treat Candy Bags, Scary Movie Screening, Haunted House Masquerade Party for Teens!!!

More than 650,000 customers in New York City and Westchester County lost electrical power due to Hurricane Sandy, Con Edison said early today.
"This is the largest storm-related outage in our history," said Con Edison Senior Vice President for Electric Operations John Miksad. The previous record was more than 200,000 customers affected by Hurricane Irene in 2011.
Miksad cautioned crews must assess damage prior making to repairs, but early today low-lying areas of New York City and Westchester County remained under water.
Challenges include, for example, more than 200 wires down on Staten Island. In Westchester County, more than 180 roads are closed.
Restoring electrical service to underground equipment demands cleaning all components of sea water, drying and testing to make it safe to restore power.
Here are the latest outages as of 1 a.m.Tuesday:
Manhattan: 193,000 customers
Westchester County: 158,000
Staten Island: 76,000
Safety for customers and Con Edison employees is the company's No. 1 priority.
Con Edison restores lines that will return power to the most customers as quickly as possible, and then moves on to restore small groups and individual customers who are still without power.
To report outages, Customers can report downed power lines, outages, and check service restoration status by computer or mobile device at www.conEd.com. They also can call 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633). When reporting an outage, it is helpful if customers have their Con Edison account number available, if possible, and report whether their neighbors also have lost power. Customers who report outages will be called by Con Edison with their estimated restoration times as they become available
