BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - Members of the Bed-Stuy community held hands across the entire block around Interfaith Medical Center today in a show of support for the troubled hospital.

Community members were joined by local politicians and clergy to show their solidarity and say they're doing everything they can to show their support for IMC. Supporters say they're concerned about IMC’s possible closure because the next closest hospitals range from 15 to 30 minutes away.

A judge has postponed the hospital's bankruptcy hearing until Sept. 11.
