  • This is just an example of a time when things were done for the love of it, not for the commercial value of it. We are sadly lacking this anywhere in our culture anymore...and greatly suffering for it. If "profit" is put ahead of everything we humans are capable of, we are indeed in a sorry state. — Bobbie on Archive of Contemporary Music hanging by a vinyl thread

  • Talented and great voice, I just hope she works with the right teacher(s) to learn not to drop the final consonants and in turn the pitch from singing the correct interval. Too many young singers blow their voices out from not having proper technique. — G on Kids These Days: Leyla Blue

  • From Tribeca Trib: "Tribeca's Extraordinary Record Archive" Posted Feb. 28, 2013 " 'I am against engaging in commerce of any sort. We don’t try to market anything. We don’t put ads on our website. We don’t have a cafe. We don’t sell tote bags.' He paused. 'A gift shop would probably make it easier to survive.' "The archives survives with the help of two foundations, its board of directors and landlord, the building’s co-op. " 'We pay one-third of the market rate,' George says. 'They’re incredibly generous.' "Even so, it’s a struggle. He says the archives have lost a lot of donors in the last few years, mostly people who used to give $50 to $100. " 'It’s hard to get enough money to pay the rent every month.' " http://www.tribecatrib.com/content/tribecas-extraordinary-record-archive — James on The Archive of Contemporary Music is closing

  • NY Post: "‘Fortress-like’ Tribeca townhouse plan blasted as a ‘disaster and an affront’" The city Landmarks Preservation Commission panned a proposal to turn 11 Hubert St. —  a former freight terminal — into a 17,000-square-foot abode with LPC members blasting its facade as “fortress like” and “almost Darth Vader-ish.” A plan to clad one side of the building in granite was deemed “very mask like,” by LPC member Jeanne Lutfy speaking at a meeting last week. “I hate to say this, but I sort of had this feeling like ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ — that mask Anthony Hopkins is wearing,” Lutfy said. https://nypost.com/2019/12/07/fortress-like-tribeca-townhouse-plan-blasted-as-a-disaster-and-an-affront/ — James on In the News: New plans for 11 Hubert

  • Sadly, Margaret Chin nor any elected has been able to help enough to confirm for residents at Gateway to ensure any type of lasting affordability. BPC has lost more affordable housing in the last 6 years than ANYWHERE else in Manhattan. Sad to watch families and people get pushed out who helped pioneer this area. — Gateway Resident on In the News: The Palm on the block

  • No, Nadler didn't then and hasn't since, nor have any of the others involved. Gov't handouts are no substitute for years of life. The results from the EPA's classified air sampling remain inaccessible to those affected. As important, they are inaccessible to the researchers and doctors who might use it to better treat the thousands more who will die from 9/11 exposure-related conditions, and the thousands who have died. He and Schumer have held high office throughout. Their constituents are more affected than any. Pataki, Giuliani, Bloomberg, et al. also get their share of responsibility. — B on In the News: Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall

  • Congressman Nadler did everything possible to get George Bush’s EPA to conduct scientifically valid sampling of downtown buildings as was required by Federal regulations in existence at the time. He fought, along side residents, area workers, community organizations, and labor representatives, for a proper cleanup of all affected buildings. Had he, and we, been able to secure a timely and proper cleanup, health effects resulting from long-term chronic exposures to WTC contaminants could have been avoided. To that end, he did all that was possible. Had it not been for his continuing efforts neither residents, school children, or those who worked in the area would be eligible for the federally sponsored WTC Health Program or the Victim’s Compensation Fund. Without his efforts, those programs would have been open only Toto Responders. — J on In the News: Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall

  • Agree 100 percent. Displaced residents such as I were allowed one visit on Sept. 15 to 41 River Terr. (next door to Stuyvesant), which was in the frozen zone. We had about 20 min. to retrieve clothes, toss rotting food, and the like. Climbed 30-plus flight of stairs to find all apartment doors propped open. Some unidentified gov't authority had placed mechanical air-sniffing devices in every apartment. The feds classified the results and declared the air safe. "Thanks" to Jerry Nadler, Chuck Schumer, Geo. Pataki, and Mayors Giuliani and Bloomberg for doing nothing to bring the truth forward on this. — B on In the News: Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall
