  • Please note: cooking gas service has been temporarily suspended in Bank “A”. Condensation had formed on the “C” Bank side of a gas pipe, which later froze and led to the FDNY shutting off the cooking gas main for Bank “A”.  This issue is being actively worked on but requires inspections by and permits from DOB and the National Grid. Following inspection and the timely issuance of new permits, Management hopes to have gas restored inside three (3) weeks. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
