BROOKLYN - Brooklyn residents are dealing with intense heat and humidity by staying indoors or heading to the beach, but not everyone can escape the heat.

Leo Im, owner of Brooklyn Valet, a dry cleaning store located on 7th Avenue in Park Slope, says that his air conditioner just won't work and that the two fans do little to cool off his employees. Im says that his employees press more than 150 garments a day.

Other professions, such as contractors and construction workers, also can't escape the heat and are bracing for two days of terrible weather.
