Nicole Lonigro: A Fighter on the Frontline

Nicole LonigroWhen they say “look for the helpers”, you do not have to look very far for Nicole Lonigro. She was born to help. Whether as one of the first employees at Bungalow Bar in Rockaway Beach or simply being there for her friends and family. She always puts her needs last. This is to let you know how proud we are of her as she fights for all of us.
Up until COVID-19’s strike on NYC, Nicole worked in a breast imaging center for Mount Sinai South Nassau Hospital as an ultrasound technician, but when called, she answered.  Nicole was asked to join the X-ray department in the Emergency Room, mostly assisting with chest X-rays for incoming COVID patients. Nicole has been working tirelessly, 7 days a week, overnights, 16+ hour shifts, without a complaint. On top of that, Nicole has reached out to friends and family asking if anyone had a loved one at Mt. Sinai so that on her breaks she can visit and comfort them, that’s the epitome of how the selflessness of Nicole.
To know Nicole is to love her. We are happy to also announce that Nicole and her fiancé, Kevin, who is also a “Frontliner” working for the DSNY will be getting married at IGC Hospitality’s The Rockaway Hotel in January 2021. We are proud that she is on our team, that she is in our corner, and she needs to know we have her back too.  So, we tip our hats to you, Nicole, we thank you, and we wish you all the happiness in the world.
