New York City says it’s launching “one-stop restoration centers” that will provide recovery services and disaster relief.
The offices will be located in Far Rockaway and Breezy Point, Queens; Coney Island, Red Hook and Gravesend, Brooklyn; and on Staten Island.
Both state and federal disaster relief will be offered at the centers.
