Storm cleanup lingers as city turns to parks

Yonkers officials have turned their attention to city parks as their cleanup from last week's freak July storm continues.

Crews on Wednesday turned downed tree limbs into saw dust at Trevor Park and have been slowly chipping away at debris from the July 8 storm.

The popular African American Festival, which is held in Trevor Park, has been postponed because of the storm damage.
