The Parks Department will begin repairs at Sandy-damaged Andrews Grove/Shady Park this week, the LIC Post reported. The park, at 49th Avenue between 5th Street and Vernon Boulevard, was hit by eight uprooted trees that crushed a children’s swing set. City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer told the LIC Post that he had secured $10,000 in private funding for repairs from Jet Blue and Warner Bros. in addition to Parks Department funds.
