There are health benefits to the Bed-Stuy community when healthy produce/ foods are available fromRead More community gardens, natural/ organic food stores and delivery of fresh produce from farmer's markets. There is also health benefits to the Bed-Stuy community by the intervention of health education which will encourage people to seek and participate in their own health and healing. I always incorporate health teaching throughout my clinical practice and, my health/lecture program teaches people how to make healthy food choices and, to identify and avoid the unhealthy foods that are harmful to the bodily organs.

Ermmmm....sorry but "to say that racism is a consciously institutionalized aspect of ourRead More society" is exactly true.

Problems cannot be addressed if they are not fully acknowledged...racism is a consciouslyRead More institutionalized aspect of our society. Do you think the fact that Black and Brown people were more likely to be sold subprime loans than White people with similar financial resumes was an accident? Generally, people of color know that racism is an institutionalized part of our society because we are the ones dealing with the effects ---- we don't have the luxury of denial.

I think it was Baldwin who said: So long as you keep thinking you are white,i will be forced to keepRead More thinking I am black. Nuff said...

The wholesale buying club is fantastic with affordable prices if you "split" shares.

A few weeks ago I heard Donnie McClurkin say on his radio show, "the best way to ensure yourRead More legacy is to prepare your successor." I am in total agreement. I believe that if our current longtime government representatives prepared and groomed their succesors they would leave more of an impact.

Al Vann is a clown. And, contrary to the above sentence that claims Kevin Powell is a 'leader', heRead More also a clown and Kevin Powell lives at 186 Johnson Street in Fort Greene so Powell CANNOT run for Bed-Stuy's City Councilmanic seat because he doesn't live in Bed-Stuy. Also Kevin Powell doesn't have any discernible track record that I'm aware of as concerns assisting Bed-Stuy--at all. Anybody know of anything Kevin Powell ever did for Bed-Stuy? Anybody ever see Kevin Powell attend a public meeting in Bed-Stuy? Neither have I.

Before a torch can be passed on, shouldn't we be more concern as to "whom" we are passingRead More on our torches to? Let's face it, with all that is going on with youths in Bed-Stuy,..gangs, drugs, alchohol,shootings, teenage pregnacies, and school drop out rates at an all time high, the truth of the matter is that the young are not ready to hand the responsibilities. When I ride mass transit everyday, I am constantly reminded that the rude and out of control teenagers that I have observe makes me want to hold on to the torch a little longer until I see that the young are truly ready for responsibilities. Would you leave an inexperienced teenager/young adult with responsibilites that they are not trained for or even has a clue as to how about to handle everyday responsibilities?

I can't wait for Bike Share to come to our neighborhood! As a member of Transportation AlternativesRead More Brooklyn Volunteer Comittee, I'm so excited to see this great new transportation option coming to our community. I attended the community planning workshop last week for Crown Heights/Prospect Heights, which DOT hosted at Medgar Evers College. I hope lots of neighbors can join us for the upcoming workshop for Bike Share planning in our neighborhood. It's a fun workshop to attend - you get to use stickers to help DOT decide where Bike Share docking stations will be!

well now, one can find also Alice's Arbor at 549 Classon avenue. They've opened a few weeks ago andRead More the food is great. So is their bar.

I checked their website: Weekly compost drop-off: every Saturday, from 9am to 4pm.Read More http://462halsey.com/
Shatia Jackson January 24, 2012 at 07:08 pm
we ask that anyone who wants to drop off, just leave it at the gate and we will take care of theRead More rest! That way, even if we arent at the site, you can drop off at your leisure
Khris August 5, 2012 at 02:34 am
I don't think they're accepting any compost for the month of August (2012) while they re-work theirRead More composing set-up. Fyi...

Food, hair weaves, and kung fu!
Claudette Brady July 17, 2011 at 09:45 am
Actually I should have said, I made NO association with food or weaves.

while it is true that people are supposed to pick up after their dog, actually after any dog theyRead More walk, even if not theirs. most responsible people do that, they also don't allow their dogs to pee on parked motorcycles or cars and try to steer them away from peoples doorways. a not picked up poop is not a reason to poison the dog!!! it's not the dogs fault it wasn't taught any manners. poisoning dogs is also illegal and charged as animal abuse. on the other hand I met a lot of people who verbally attacked me for allowing the dogs I was with to pee on the sidewalk (the curb side) opposite their houses, they threaten to call the police (go right ahead! Im not doing anything illegal) and yell racial slurrs. that's not cool. also wait before commenting untill you're sure the person doesn't intend to pick up, dont start yelling before the dog's even done pooping!
DMT July 10, 2011 at 04:30 pm
and about peeing and curbing: some of us are just dog walkers hired by people who didn't teach theirRead More dogs to walk over to the curb and do their business there! those kinds of dogs will just stop all of a sudden and start peeing or pooping and will not budge when pulled! we really can't do much about that, sorry. I personally would happily use someones water supply to hose the pee off but when instead of working on a solution someone starts yelling and calling me names I'll just walk away. I've walked dogs who were taught to go into the tree/flower beds !!! it takes a while to retrain the dog and is virtually impossible when the owner continues to allow such behavior

There is no reason not to pick up after your dog.Read More https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=3907054316599

We really love New People, in response to your Chinese takeout gripe. They're unabashedly anotherRead More hole in the wall, but they do it extremely well taste-wise and every time I come in, I see the same lovely woman behind the counter who seems to keep her chin up regardless of the show her more regrettable customers might be putting on : ) And it's super cheap. Anyway, it's on the north side of Fulton just to the west of Throop across from that Asian fruit stand/bodega that is also very good.
John June 6, 2011 at 01:51 am
Just FYI since they recently opened, the food at the bar next door to Dahlia's is SICK. It's calledRead More Voodou...or Voudou. Or something. Awesome staff, shockingly great food, reasonable drinks and some real inventiveness with the special mixed stuff.
Kevin June 14, 2011 at 05:02 pm
I'm a little late but I agree that this is a wonderful article. I live in BedSty, and quite franklyRead More I'm a little jealous of many options available in Ft Green / Clinton Hill. I can't wait for the day when I will be able to leave my brownstone on Monroe and walk down the block to a nice spot (hopefully a takeover of the location now being occupied by Kennedy Fried Chicken and a liquor store.
