Superstorm Sandy

NYU Langone Medical Center reopens

Posted: Updated:

By DR. MARC SIEGEL | Fox News

NYU Langone Medical Center, a huge hospital right next to the East River, was nearly destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.

The hospital suffered extensive damage. As the storm raged, hospital staff relocated more than 300 patients down stairwells, with limited power.

The hospital's main campus was completely shut down for nearly two months. This week there is new life in the halls of the hospital as labor and delivery reopened and, while the ER is still under construction, the urgent care center is open just in time for flu season.

Doctors say the center can handle any medical case that walks through the door.

    Brooklyn's final pitch to hold the 2016 Democratic national convention was centered on New York City's robust mass transit system -- and a pledge to learn "from the mistakes" from the last time the city hosted a presidential convention. The Republicans gathered in New York in 2004 to re-nominate President George W. Bush, choosing to meet in deep-blue Manhattan less than three years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

    New York City women are tired of hearing vile things yelled at them as they walk down the street. Many women are going public about street harassment and catcalling. Some even post picture of their offenders on social media. Founded in 2005, Hollaback! is an anti-harassment organization giving women a platform to do just that.
