Bill de Blasio was escorted out a State University of New York school today, hands bound in a zip tie handcuff after the mayoral candidate and public advocate joined healthcare workers to protest talks of closing Brooklyn's Long Island College Hospital.

Brooklyn Councilman Steve Levin — whose district includes LICH — was also arrested by the New York Police Department, as were a handful of protesters.

"Today, nurses, doctors, community members, and elected officials stand together against the blatant attempt by SUNY Downstate to shutdown Long Island College Hospital," Levin's office said in a statement earlier today. "Their actions fly in the face of the law and are literally risking the lives of Brooklyn residents. By getting arrested, we are sending a message that we will not tolerate SUNY’s disturbing disregard of the court's orders."

Reporters on the scene also tweeted that former Congressman Anthony Weiner and Comptroller John Liu — also in the race to replace Mayor Michael Bloomberg — were on the scene, albeit safe from arrest.

The protest is the latest in a series of events organized by local leaders and unions in advance of the debt-ridden hospital's potential closure.

SUNY partially staved off a shutdown in late April after it withdrew its earlier plan to close the Cobble Hill location. "Don’t let this happen on your watch," de Blasio said at another protest in Brooklyn on Sunday as he called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to intervene. "Don’t let us lose more hospitals."

Headlines: Cuomo Says Sandy Cost More Than Katrina http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/city/2012/11/27/headlines-cuomo-sandy-cost-more-than-katrina- http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/city/2012/11/27/headlines-cuomo-sandy-cost-more-than-katrina- Gov. Cuomo said Hurricane Sandy affected more people than Katrina in his plea for nearly $42 billion in federal aid. He noted many more died in Katrina, but that the economic toll of Sandy was higher, reaching almost $33 billion in clean up costs. The aid request from Cuomo grew from his previous plea for $30 billion.The aid would be used to cover damage and restoration, but $9 billion of it would be used to prepare for future storms. Mayor Bloomberg is making his own plea for nearly $10 billion in aid. State health officials are also asking for almost a half-billion dollars in special Medicaid funding for hospitals, nursing homes and clinics affected by the storm.

Headlines: Hospitals Struggle to Recover; Most Sandy Looting Cases Tossed http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/city/2012/11/20/headlines-hospitals-struggle-to-recover-most-sandy-looting-cases-tossed- http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/city/2012/11/20/headlines-hospitals-struggle-to-recover-most-sandy-looting-cases-tossed- Many city hospitals are still struggling to recover from the storm, and may be for a while. Bellevue won't reopen its emergency room until at least December, Coney Island Hospital fully operational until January, and the reopening timetable for NYU Langone Medical Center nor the Veterans Affairs Hospital is still murky. The extended shutdowns are stretching the resources of other hospitals, which are running at near capacity. Over 3,000 patients in the city had to be moved to other facilities due to the storm.
