69th Precinct Community Council holds job fair in Canarsie

Dozens of job seekers were in Canarsie Thursday for a job fair sponsored by the 69th Precinct Community Council.



Organizers hope the event will help residents find employment and prevents crime at the same time.



"Most of the problems that we have are caused by young people...because in the summertime they have too much free time," says Gardy Brazela, of the Community Council.



Brazela says the job fair has been held for three years and has grown in attendance.
