Bay Ridge councilman keeps office open Saturdays

City Councilman Vincent Gentile says he wants to make life easier for constituents who want to seek his help but who work during the week and cannot get to his district office in Bay Ridge.

To accommodate the schedules of busy constituents, Gentile (D-Bay Ridge-Dyker Heights-Bensonhurst) announced he will now open his district office at 8703 Third Ave. on Saturdays.

“By opening my office on Saturdays, it is my hope to assist those whose work schedules or other commitments keep them from visiting my office during the work week,” Gentile said.  “This option will make my office more accessible to everyone in my district.”

It isn’t the first time Gentile has made himself available to the public on weekends. He also keeps a table as a satellite “office” each Saturday during the spring and summer at the Bay Ridge Greenmarket. The Greenmarket operates from May until November in the rear of the parking lot of Walgreens Pharmacy at 9408 Third Ave.

Gentile’s district office will now be open each Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. He will also maintain his regular office hours Monday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
