NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - As communities continue to recover in the wake of superstorm Sandy, Con Edison is distributing dry ice at seven locations in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island and Westchester County to those who remain without power.

Power is back on in Manhattan, but a good portion of the outer boroughs and Westchester remain dark.

Con Ed workers will distribute until supplies run out, and personnel from the energy company will be on hand to answer any questions that customers may have.

The seven locations are:

Brooklyn

Walgreen’s at 532 Neptune Ave. (between W. 5th & 6th Streets)

Bronx

PS 83 at 1846 Radcliff Avenue (Between Morris Park Avenue & Rhinelander Avenue) 

Queens

Baisley Pond Park at 155 St and Baisley Blvd. in South Jamaica

Flushing in the parking lot at the Kissena Park Velodrome near Booth Memorial Avenue

Staten Island

Great Kills – Gateway National Park at Hylan Blvd & Buffalo Street

Westchester County

Westchester County Center at 198 Central Avenue in White Plains

Yonkers Raceway – 810 Yonkers Avenue

Con Ed has instructed customers to only use dry ice in well-ventilated areas, and to keep it away from children and pets.
