This summer the “SEXUALITY AND SHADOWS“ exhibit will premiere at PTown’s one and only ArT LoVe GaLLerY (445 Commercial Street).

NEW YORK CITY RESIDENTS SHOULD BE ASHAMED BY NOT VOTING

Image
  I DID NOT VOTE I am sorry. Less than 90 thousand residents of New York City voted in the primaries. This is why our country is so messed up. With over 8 million people living in NYC, I am just shocked with all the problems this country is facing that such a low number of people voted. Everyone will complain about this and that.

Many of the candidates had no experience at all, but many of them won because their people voted.  I think it is a disgrace in this day and age when you can vote absentee and not even leave your home, to not vote. I am very sad that some good candidates who have worked very hard for the community way before they ran for any office lost, because people did not vote. Then everyone will complain about this and that and it is you who caused all of the
