Until we get back on our feet, all NYSC members have privileges to use any club, at any time, at no additional cost. 

Our doors are open to help anyone impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

All of our clubs are opening their doors to Hurricane Sandy victims allowing full use of our facilities. If you need to take a hot shower, charge your cell phone, or recharge your body with a stress-melting workout, our club is your club. Tell a friend. All we ask is that non-members bring a towel. In the wake of the storm, we’re committed to providing a safe workout environment for all of our members. We appreciate your patience while we restore our facilities to working order.

A note from the JCC of the Greater Five Towns:

Please join us at 207 Grove Avenue from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to warm up, charge your phones and have a cup of coffee. In addition, if you are having difficulty coping with the storm and its aftermath, we have trained, caring social workers available to help you. We provide assistance with FEMA applications and can help you navigate the other benefits and entitlements related to the storm. If you need non-perishable foods from our Kosher Food Pantry, please let us know by calling 516-569-6733, or stop in to our office at 207 Grove Avenue, Cedarhurst.

Someone just told me that the Sunoco on Mill and Peninsula just got but beware- she says it's a madhouse with people parked in the street waiting and lines down the block.
Stephen J. Bronner November 03, 2012 at 08:26 PM
Both Sunoco on Peninsula and Gulf on Rockaway Turnpike were open just now, with humongous lines. The line at Gulf went down West Broadway to Oxford and down to Peninsula.

Is Costco on Rockaway T[ke open today?
Felicia Ruditz Slavin November 04, 2012 at 02:46 PM
Dunkin Donuts in Hewlett open too. Drivers Ed at Haftr operating at least for lectures today (none of the cars which are brought in from Staten Island were there). Think that Capital One in Hewlett, Da Nicola, Subway have all reopened as of yesterday at least. There are some other businesses in that strip open, too. Car accident this morning at the traffic light not working intersection of Woodmere Boulevard and Central Avenue. Also, gates were stuck down for the railroad at least in Woodmere and Cedarhurst and I had to drive through very carefully.
Stephen J. Bronner November 04, 2012 at 03:23 PM
As far as I know, Rockaway Turnpike has no power.
Michelle I. Jaeger November 04, 2012 at 05:06 PM
