The New York City council official for 36th district Chi Ossé visited to an immigrant family-owned bodega and a chicken shop, at 357 Nostrand housing, Bed-Stuy Brooklyn. Council member also share the detail on his social media official account.
Earlier, on February 7, fire broke out in a vacant building in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn. Resultant, the neighboring property located at 357 Nostrand Avenue suffered a tremendous amount of smoke damage, and has left the entire property unsafe to occupy. As of now the property is under a vacate order by the New York Department of Buildings.
According to the owner of bodega and a chicken shop, they need money for a structural engineer, an architect, and a contractor, so we can submit repair plans to the DOB and have to lifted the vacate order. Beyond that we also need money to replace all of the kitchen equipment that was damaged by the water used to extinguish the fire.
After two years of COVID hampered many businesses around the globe and in New York as well, the burden of the repair costs are more than owner can bare. City council member Chi Ossé partnering with @newyorknico along with Muslim community of New York initiates a fundraising to get the immigrant family back on their feet.
