Brooklyn kids at the Hope City Empowerment Center in Prospect Heights who were good all year received some special treats from Governor Andrew Cuomo, acting the part of Santa Claus on Sunday.
The governor, along with several other government officials got together to distribute toys, coats and school supplies to the kids, who were even more excited by meeting the politicians as they were about receiving the gifts.
“The governor was nice to everybody, and that’s why I like the governor” said one participant.
“I think it was very nice for him to come and give kids gifts and other people that didn’t have money to go buy gifts,” another individual declared. “I think it was nice for him to come.”
“I’m happy because I never met him in my life, and it was my dream to meet him,” exclaimed someone else who was there.
