PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY WARNING!
Brooklyn, NY — The most common
method your doctor will recommend to treat
your neuropathy is with prescription drugs
that may temporarily reduce your symptoms.
These drugs have names such as Gabapentin,
Lyrica, Cymbalta, and Neurontin, and are
primarily antidepressant or anti-seizure
drugs. These drugs may cause you to feel
uncomfortable and have a variety of harmful

Southern Brooklyn politicians
are asking New York Senator Chuck
Schumer to not forget about the deteriorating
Shore Parkway Promenade when
negotiating a large federal infrastructure
bill currently before Congress.
The group, made up of State Sen.
Andrew Gounardes, Assemblymember
Michael Tannousis, State Sen. Diane
Savino, City Councilmember Justin
Brannan, Assemblymember Peter
Abbate, City Councilmember Mark
Treyger and Assemblymember Mathylde
Frontus, is calling on the federal
government to invest $50 million into
the waterfront walkway and bike path
that they say is in “incredibly poor
condition”— riddled with large sinkholes,
lacking public facilities and outfi
tted with undeveloped green space.
“It’s four miles of uninterrupted
waterfront access from the pier to Bay
Parkway,” Gounardes told Brooklyn
Paper. “And it’s some of the most beautiful
views in the entire city and yet if
you look it’s poorly maintained, its rundown,
there are giant sinkholes in it.”
The sinkholes are a remnant of the
destruction wrought by Hurricane
Irene in 2011 and Superstorm Sandy
in 2012, when storm surge fl ooded sections
of the promenade in Bath Beach
and exacerbated the erosion of the
walkway’s underlying bulkheads.
“During those storms, large sections
of the promenade along Bath
Beach were breached by the storm
surge, fl ooding the Belt Parkway and
residential neighborhoods on the
other side of the highway,” the pols
wrote. “The storms also exacerbated
the erosion of the bulkheads under the
promenade, causing a spiraling effect
leading to more sinkholes and more
Gounardes told Brooklyn Paper
he hopes the federal investment could
launch the transformation of the Shore
Parkway Promenade into his vision of
a Narrows Waterfront Park, a plan he
has dreamt up over the years of redeveloping
the space into a “recreation
destination” like Brooklyn Bridge
Park or the East River Blueway.
Some of his ideas for the southern
Brooklyn waterfront are building
out an empty space at Bay 8th Street
into a 13-acre park with comfort stations,
picnic tables and other amenities;
enhancing sections of the promenade
with attractions like a dog park
or playground; improving pedestrian
and bike paths from the 69th Street
pier in Bay Ridge to Caesar’s Bay in
Gravesend and building small piers
and docks for fi shing; constructing
connections from the handful of parks
nearby the promenade; hosting outdoor
and holiday events throughout
the year; connecting the promenade to
Coney Island; and upgrading Caesar’s
Bay with green spaces, a pier with
ferry access and a new separate bike
path from the Verrazano Bridge to the
waterfront shopping complex.
“I think this could be the crown
jewel of a southern Brooklyn greenway
landscape,” Gounardes said.
And as sea levels are rising and
coastal-lying nabes are more prone to
fl ooding, the pols advocate for a resilient
redesign of the promenade— and
the city Parks Department agrees, as
they are underway in a visioning process
to revitalize the waterfront from
Americans Veterans Memorial Pier in
Bay Ridge to Coney Island, pols wrote,
a project bicycle advocates say ignores
crucial gaps in the Brooklyn Greenway.
The legislators argue the $50 million
from the federal government are
necessary to reconstruct all of the
promenade’s bulkheads as well as install
berms along the walkway to protect
its adjacent neighborhoods from
future storm surges.
“It is imperative that we take steps
now to reconstruct the Shore Parkway
Promenade and help protect the low-lying
coastal neighborhoods of southern
Brooklyn that we represent from rising
sea levels and future storms,” the

In order to effectively treat your

3) How much treatment will your condition
The treatment that is provided at
AllCare Neurocorrective Wellness
has three main goals:
1) Increase your blood flow
3) Decrease your brain-based pain
The treatment to increase blood utilizes a
specialized low-level light therapy (not to
be confused with laser therapy) using light
emitting diode technology. This technology
was originally developed by NASA to assist
in increasing blood flow
The low level light therapy is like watering a
plant. The light therapy will allow the blood
vessels to grow back around the peripheral
nerves and provide them with the proper
nutrients to heal and repair. It’s like adding
water to a plant an seeing the roots grow
deeper and deeper.
The amount of treatment needed to allow the
nerves to fully recover varies from person to
person and can only be determined after a
detailed neurological and vascular evaluation.
