Mayoral Race Comes to Crown Heights

| |

On Wednesday, Democratic Mayoral candidate Sal Albanese went to Crown Heights to visit community organizations and small businesses.

Albanese started at the Crown Heights Community Council, where he met with Rabbi Eli Cohen. Albanese and Rabbi Cohen discussed public safety, Metzizah BePeh, affordable housing, and other issues facing the community in Crown Heights.

Albanese then greeted store owners and Lubavitch community leaders on Kingston avenue; the first of two visits on the same day. He stopped in a local Judaica store, various eateries, and met with members of the volunteer security group.

At 12:30pm, Sal’s wife Lorraine and daughter Danielle joined him at the Shalom Senior Center on Albany Avenue. There, Albanese shared his vision for the city, discussed the importance of caring for our seniors, and told how his mother lives with him and his family. During their stop, Lorraine and Sal spoke with a Holocaust survivor, who told a heartbreaking story about losing her family during her escape.
