After a few years of doctors moving to Greenpoint and Williamsburg, all our medical needs can now be taken care of locally. As a result there is no need to travel out of the neighborhood.
An estimated 312 hours of travel and 520 dollars in cost are saved yearly. This number is the result of 2 individual medical appointments with 3 hours roundtrip travel time on train or bus weekly. The 520 dollars saved affords our neighbors 27 Mocha Frappuccinos, 17 Carmel Macchiatos and 6 Bacon & Gouda Sandwiches per year.
