Hurricane Irene Approaching New York City - Roosevelt Island Community Comfort Station Set Up At Child School/Legacy HS

Just received this update from Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC):

Please be advised that Sal Ferrera, Director of the Child School/Legacy HS, has set up a Community Comfort Station for residents in need of emergency shelter. The Comfort Station opened as of 1 PM today and will remain opened through tomorrow and Monday if necessary. There will be food, water, mats, access to the internet and telephone.

Anyone seeking shelter, please come to Legacy HS, 566 Main Street, and ring the front bell for access. We would like to thank The Child School/Legacy HS for their support to the community in this time of need.

 There was a RI311 See Click Fix report of:
The police department has failed to secure their dog traing equipment with a huricane about to hit New York
I asked RIOC about the K9 Dog Training equipment still in the Southtown lot. Community Relations Specialist Erica Wilder replied:
Keith Guerra has contacted the NYPD K-9 Lieutenant who will be sending a team of officers to attempt to secure the equipment inside the K-9 Training Facility.

I wonder if the guy the RIRA, the resident RIOC directors, and the owner of this blog hate so much for accepting the appointment will get credit for him opening the school as shelter for the upcoming storm. Am I too naive to expect such thing?

Matt Katz of RIRA, Sal Ferrera and Keith Guerra of Public Safety met on Friday afternoon. Who organized the meeting? Who represented RIOC?

Kudos to Sal for volunteering the Child School for use as a shelter/comfort station.  Sal & the Child School are a class act (no pun intended)!

I thank and give Mr. Ferrera credit for making the Child School available during Hurricane Irene.

Of course, that has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that he should not be a RIOC Director for the reasons stated many times before and I have no desire to engage in that conversation as Hurricane Irene is approaching Roosevelt Island.

Also, neither I nor anyone that I am aware of "hates" Mr. Ferrera or has a personal antagonism towards him. I think it is sad that you think opposition to his appointment as a RIOC Director indicates a hatred towards him.

I think his actions prove that he is a good man to have on the RIOC board. He does have the community in mind. He is a man who can make things happen on this island.
