Hundreds of unemployed BK residents attend job fair

BROOKLYN - Hundreds of unemployed Brooklyn residents lined up in Bensonhurst today for their shot at a new job.

More than 600 people registered for the UJA-Federation of New York's event, with 40 different employers in attendance, from Maimonides Medical Center to Victoria's Secret.

Organizers say if residents missed the fair, they can attend another one at the Jewish Cultural Center in Manhattan next Wednesday.
