Leaving his sleigh behind and hitching a ride with New York Fire Department Engine Co. 214, Ladder Co. 111 in Bedford Stuyvesant, Santa Claus visited Interfaith Medical Center‘s Winter Wonderland to deliver Frozen dolls, talking Iron Men, toy cars and board games to 500 preschoolers and kindergarteners, ages 3 to 5 years old.
