Lt. Joseph Giuseppie Petrosino honored at NYC Police Museum Suzannah given an NYPD pin with his badge no!
http://www.nycpolicemuseum.org/ Please come visit this gem of a museum and moving exhibition honoring Lt. Giuseppe Joseph Petrosino a true American NYPD hero who was the first NYPD hero to lose his life in the line of duty. After visiting the historic building that was once an active precinct you can walk across to the other side of Lower Manhattan and visit the NYPD Memorial where you can see his name honored with so many courageous souls that have lost their lives in the line of duty.
My theory is if he had lived he would have been our first Italian American NYPD Commish!

Cooper Square Committee having a rally for affordable housing and they are true NYC heroes -- amazing work and achievements
Sunday, November 15th - 1PM
Delancey St & Suffolk St, Manhattan (Lower East Side)
By Subway: F to Delancey St; J to Essex St
1,850 homes were demolished in 1967 as part of the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area - with the promise that new affordable housing would be built on these enormous tracts of land in the heart of the Lower East Side. After thousands were displaced, the affordable housing was never built.
42 YEARS HAVE PASSED, AND WE'RE STILL WAITING FOR THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING!
On the site where thousands once lived in a vibrant community - there are five enormous open-air parking lots. These sites could be used for 2,000 units of affordable housing for low-income New Yorkers and community facilities for the neighborhood, while the construction of the site and affordable commercial spaces built in them could provide much needed living-wage jobs.
Please join us for a rally to demand justice for the Lower East Side. 42 years is more than enough! Affordable housing NOW!
For more info, contact the Cooper Square Committee:

|Parachute Performance Festival|
What: The first annual literary and performance festival in Coney Island
Where: New York City Aquarium, West 8th Street.
When: Saturday and Sunday, September 12th and 13th at 6:30pm
Coney Island has always hosted a magnificent array of performance: a naked Walt Whitman read Shakespeare to the Atlantic Ocean; Cary Grant walked on stilts at Steeplechase Park; Woody Guthrie strummed his guitar on Mermaid Avenue; the Bread and Puppet Theatre was in residence in the 1970s; and Coney Island USA has been a theatrical fixture for nearly thirty years.
The Parachute Performance Festival continues this tradition. This free poetry workshop will feature a wide array of established and up-and-coming Brooklyn-based poets and writers. Highlights include poet Patricia Spears Jones, John Ventimiglia from the Sopranos reading Henry Miller's words on Coney Island, Eileen Myles (named by BUST magazine as "the rock star of modern poetry") and the former Brooklyn Poet Laureate, Dennis Nurkse.

Why not attempt to make some money on advertisements on my blogs?
I just won't put anyone "Bloomberg Newzzz" because for me it is "high art" -- I am painting with words and I don't want cheesy ads next to my work. I prefer not to have it on any of my blogs but I want to see if I will actually make money from adsense and there is only one way to find out.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

"Children's Magical is hosting Make Music New York in the Garden on June 21st, the Summer Solstice. There is a great line-up of free, acoustic, family friendly bands that will be playing from 11 AM-8:30 PM. We need more volunteers to be there for 3 shifts: 11-2, 2-5:30, 5:30-8:30/9 (make sure we are closed at dark). It should be tons of fun. Contact Kate at katetemplewest@http://www.facebook.com/l/;gmail.com if you would like to volunteer, or message me on facebook. Make Music New York will also be providing volunteers to keep the garden clean and safe, but it would be good to have as many volunteers as possible. Probably you will just be hanging out and enjoying most of the time."

My Dad told me there was a newspaper strike and in those days Sunday papers had the funnies, the cartoons, since the papers were on strike he would read the children the funny papers. My Dad says he was an outstanding person... He would run to all the fires!!!!!!!!! He rushed to see what was going on. The economic times were terrible, my Dad reminisced.

Mike Bloomberg's streets of NY, see link from NY1 water main break 2 years ago but problems keep arising
Watch my two youtubes on Bloomberg's streets of new york and just this block which you can see on NY1 and the next block which you see in my 2 youtubes seem to be busting open again and again...why is that?
Also giving every perk imaginable and unimaginable to developers who lay down knew infrastructure but connected it to old delipidated infrastructure over supersize so high with heavy trucks and equipment and construction rattling old pipes it is no surprise we have had so many water main breaks, man hole explosions gas leaks etc.
That was why I wanted DEP, DOB and Con Ed to name 3 alone to tell the mayor slow down.
In an ideal world you would make the developers slow down and put infrastructure improvements first but Bloomberg's reckless tsunami of rapid development put speed, supersizng and greed first and the good news for greedy developers is many infrastructure and construction accidents displaced more people which makes room for their greed they refer to as "progress".
See my youtubes on infrastructure -- there are many and my longest one quotes my letter published in AM NY "Destroying 'old' New York" and than William Yardley's in The New York Times that came out after mine but both were before the infrastructure break by Grand Central that did resemble a terror attack, a possibility mentioned in Yardley's piece.
Marlene is a sweet soul but she just gets by and is in need of a home and support systems to help her cope. I bought her dinner and I had a large babeland bag I gave her because she found some clean clothes which she was in need of to change...Say a prayer for Marlene.

PLEASE DO THIS FREE GOOD DEED -
Hi, all you . This is pretty simple... Please ask ten friends to ask ten others today!
is having trouble getting enough people to click on their web site daily to
meet their quota of getting free food donated every day to abused and neglected animals. It takes
less than a minute (How about 20 seconds) to go to their site and click on the purple box 'fund food
for animals' for free. This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the
number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising.
Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know.
PLEASE TELL 10 FRIENDS!!!
Bluestockings Bookstore, come visit, a cool place to hang out & many free events + my no third term MIke Bloomberg poster!
Please note the NYPD and the MTA ask that you do not wear your wings but hold them for your own safety. Thank you.
