There are several other PD offices in New York - Bronx Defenders, Legal Aid Society, Neighborhood Harlem Defender Services of Harlem (although they very rarely hire right out of law school), New York County Defenders, Appellate Advocates - apply to all of them. And Legal Aid Society has several offices in Brooklyn.
You could also try to arrange for a fellowship to work at one of those offices for a year.
If you're dinged from a screener can you not regularly apply to the agency? IDK the answer curious to what people think on this
