**** While Macy's Celebrates Freedom They Take It Away from Veterans And Seniors ****


NBC NEW YORK ON MACY'S




There is really nothing I can say about the treatment we get from Macy's having this event in our park every year. This year they really screwed us.

Knowing how the last two years with us being locked up like animals for Macy's, this year I decided to be pro active. It took weeks, but I got permission from the 108th police department to have a dinner served to our veterans and seniors as well as tenants who stayed in town, in the vacant lot across the street. It was all set. LIC Landing Coffeed, the restaurant in the park agreed to give us the same food as Macy's. Urban Market was donating the paper goods and the rest, we were going to buy for the tenants. We thought to ourselves, this year we will have fun finally.

How wrong we were. Macy's who was unaware that we had a vacant property across the street from our building, was told by the police department…

TENANTS TO MARCH AGAINST DONALD TRUMP JULY 12

Image
The following came from New York Communities for Change. We highly agree, Trump is after the poor. Plain and simple.Please sign petition.


Did you know Donald Trump doesn’t trust poor people to make economic policy? That’s exactly what he revealed at a rally last week where he said he doesn’t “want a poor person” in his cabinet making economic decisions.


Trump is using this as an excuse to allow his corporate cabinet to make policy decisions that line the pockets of the wealthy. While he claims only rich people can make good economic policy, his proposed $7 billion cuts to federal housing programs will leave hundreds of thousands of people who rely on them vulnerable.


This isn't a "sound" economic decision — and we’re not going to take it. On July 12, tenants will march in Washington DC for one of the biggest housing marches in the nation led by low-income communities against Trump's housing budget cuts. Sign up here to RSVP for the march and get the latest details …

New York, NY -- Global Strays, a 501(c)3 charity founded by young New Yorkers Elizabeth Shafiroff and Lindsey Spielfogel, which focuses on improving the lives of dogs and cats in developing nations held its inaugural fundraiser in New York City.


The evening was introduced by Emcee Rita Cosby who presented the idea and goals of the Charity as well as its co-founders Elizabeth Shafiroff and Lindsey Spielfogel. Global Strays co-founder Ms. Shafiroff, daughter of noted New York philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, who sits on the organization’s board, says that a recent trip to Nicaragua left her “horrified with the treatment of animals.” That horror compelled her to make a difference. She teamed up with Ms. Spielfogel and created a nonprofit devoted to providing grants to animal welfare organizations in developing nations.






Young professionals with a passion for doing good came together to support this worthy cause. Among the event’s approx…

New York -- June 20, 2017 Pop icon Vanilla Ice, a.k.a. Rob VanWinkle, goes to Florida’s Treasure Coast to tackle his next house renovation and flip during the new season of DIY Network’s popular series, The Vanilla Ice Project. Premiering Saturday, July 15, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, the 13-episode arc will follow Vanilla Ice as he launches his most colossal and lavish renovation to date—the transformation of a dilapidated 7,000-square-foot home into a contemporary oceanfront estate that features a rocket ship play space, an indoor hibachi grill room and a custom pool.


The new season features Vanilla Ice and his team of “construction ninjas” as they face time and budget constraints while restoring a sprawling but decaying property. Each episode features the team as they strip the home down to its bones and transform it into a modern, Polynesian-style oceanfront retreat. When Vanilla Ice is finished, the astonishing overhaul is sure to wow visitors for years to come.

KAT GRAHAM TALKS ABOUT 'ALL EYEZ ON ME' TO E!

All Eyez On Me



E! NEWS-- Kat Graham had quite the whirlwind weekend...


In addition to her new film, All Eyez on Me, hitting theaters on Friday, Graham, who plays a young Jada Pinkett Smith in the Tupac Shakur biopic, also turned up at the 2017 iHeartRadio Much Music Awards in Toronto and talked to E! News about Pinkett Smith's less-than-stellar reaction to the movie on Twitter.


Graham confessed, "When I first got the role, I reached out to [Pinkett Smith] a year and a half ago...the point of reaching out to her, as well as the other producers on the film, was to insure the integrity of the story and the character."


The Swiss-born actress added, "I even spoke to her last week and she had nothing but support."


The day the film came out, which would have been the rapper's 46th birthday, Pinkett Smith took to Twitter to say that seeing her relationship with Shakur on screen was "deeply hurtful."


Graham said of the comments, "I have a lot of love f…

A spirited audience of thousands went back to campus with stripped-down collegians who offered a sexy lacrosse scrimmage, a Pavlovian psychology experiment, a pumped-up pep rally and a fierce feminist studies class at Broadway Bares: Strip U, this year’s edition of the annual highly choreographed, highly produced striptease spectacular.


Produced by and benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Broadway Bares: Strip U raised $1,568,114 in two performances on June 18, 2017, at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom.


Stripathon, the online fundraiser led by the show’s cast and crew, raised a jaw-dropping and record-breaking $686,135 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, marking the second year in a row and only second time in Broadway Bares history Stripathon was the single largest contributor to the grand total.


This year’s Broadway Bares stripped away the fears of freshmen and saluted seniors as a journey across the Strip U campus took us to a seduct…
