Silverstein was hit on the corner of Schenectady and Empire Boulevard and was taken in critical condition to Kings County Hospital Center.
Silverstein has been a resident of the neighborhood for many years and has family living in Manhattan.
The hospital’s chaplain Rabbi Avrohom Leider asked the public to pray on his behalf for a speedy and full recovery. The name to have in mind is Yosef ben Sarah Gitta.
