And, with fall approaching quickly, we’re bringing back the successful Flu Shot program and highly anticipated Free Shredding Service (see inside for details). I am very much looking forward to seeing more of you and your neighbors at these and other local events.

To keep up on the latest from my office, sign up for my e-newsletter by calling (718) 648-4700 or emailing me at, and follow me on twitter @heleneweinstein.

Keep safe and stay healthy!
