Officials are trying to reunite New Yorkers with their belongings from an evicted storage facility. The possessions were stored at All City Storage at 253 Bond Street in Brooklyn, New York.

The Department of Consumer Affairs is alerting customers to remove their belongings as soon as possible to avoid losing their possessions. As many as 100 New York City residents may have belongings stored at the facility.

DCA is working with the former storage company, individual consumers and the Human Resources Administration to identify and locate as many customers of the evicted company as possible.

The Department has scheduled two dates for customers to come to the storage facility to claim and remove their belongings: Wednesday, July 16, 2008, from 9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m., and Wednesday, July 23, 2008 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 253 Bond Street in Brooklyn.

Customers will need to present a valid ID to retrieve their belongings and must be prepared to move their own items from the warehouse. DCA staff will be on hand to help and will not seek to collect outstanding fees from consumers on behalf of the former storage company.
