 “Our cooling centers will be open, and we strongly encourage our residents to take advantage of them throughout the week and anytime conditions become dangerous," said Mayor Felix E. Roque, M.D. “We remind residents to stay out of the heat and to check on those who may need assistance.”

The Town of West New York opens cooling centers in air-conditioned public facilities for those experiencing physical discomfort in a heat wave, and anyone can take advantage of the cooling centers. West New York Cooling Centers are open 7 days a week from 8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. at the following locations:

  • 6100 Adams Street

  • 6300 Adams Street

  • 5800 Jefferson Street

The West New York Library, located at 425 60th St., West New York, NJ 07093, will also be open for seniors, residents and anyone in need of a place to cool down on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM, as well as Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The Town of West New York encourages all residents, especially pregnant women, young children, the elderly, and the disabled to stay safe by staying indoors or by taking advantage of the cooling facilities, if necessary.
