It was on Bedford Ave and Park Ave where the unprovoked hate incident occurred.


11 Hurt in Brooklyn Fire 

At 1:45 am on Thursday, a major fire, which may have been sparked by a space heater, broke out on the third floor of a Williamsburg building on Moore St near Manhattan Ave.

11 people were hurt, including a toddler and two firefighters, in the early morning blaze.

Several were hospitalized, including the toddler, who suffered smoke inhalation and was taken to Woodhull Medical Center in critical but stable condition, cops said.


Boro Park Native Protects Countries Worldwide from Potential Russian Cyberattacks

Chani Neuberger, who grew up in Boro Park and attended Bais Yaakov before going to Touro and Columbia University, was the first person contacted by Microsoft’s Threat Intelligence Center last week after it detected malware that Russian cybercriminals created to inflict harm on Ukrainian government officials.

Neuberger, who serves as the U.S. Deputy National Security Advisor for Cyber and Emerging Technology, worked quickly to protect citizens of countries worldwide, by asking Microsoft to share details of the malware’s code so that the U.S. Defense Department and other allies of Ukraine in Europe would be ready for any potential cyberattacks, the New York Times reported.
