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.

    A NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.

    Renting out someone's apartment is an easy way to get an inexpensive place to stay if you're a tourist, and cheaper and more convenient than most hotels. But now the government is stepping in and trying to get a handle on a booming business that may not be playing by the rules. State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is squaring off in court with multi-million dollar Internet company Airbnb.
