Residents react to Broadway shootout 
Christian and Joanna Espinal got quite a shock when they answered the phone last Thursday afternoon. 
The owners of a 24-hour parking lot at 4388 Broadway, the Espinals were called by their horrified on-duty attendant, who phoned to tell them of a shootout at the site between New York Police Department (NYPD) officers and a suspect who ran into the lot. 
Police Officer Justin Vartanian of the 34th Precinct was wounded, while the suspect, who has since been identified as Luis Leizado, was shot and killed during the skirmish, the NYPD said. “He was scared,” Christian said of his employee. “He just locked himself in the office. I was shocked when he was telling me. This all happened right in front of him.” Pointing to the area where gunfire was exchanged, Christian remarked that it was fortunate there were not more people on the lot at the time.

In Time Of Silver Rain

In time of silver rain
The earth puts forth new life again,
Green grasses grow
And flowers lift their heads,
And over all the plain
The wonder spreads

Of Life,

Of Life,

Of life!

In time of silver rain
The butterflies lift silken wings
To catch a rainbow cry,
And trees put forth new leaves to sing
In joy beneath the sky
As down the roadway
Passing boys and girls
Go singing, too,  In time of silver rain When spring  And life  Are new.

05/10/19: Tales of Washington Heights: Los 90s/The 1990s

The 90’s was a wild era in the history of Uptown in general and Washington Heights in particular. At that time Washington Heights was the epicenter of the wholesale and retail drug trade for the region. Folks came from all over the city and beyond to purchase narcotics. From dime bags of haze to multiple kilos of cocaine, crack and heroin, Washington Heights was the Home Depot of drugs. Millions of dollars and untold gargantuan quantities of drugs flowed throughout the neighborhood daily. The era scarred everyone who lived through it.

Enter Gabriel Lopez. Mr. Lopez wrote, directed, produced and stars in Tales of Washington Heights: Los 90s/The 1990s. The much buzzed about web-series is based on real events and situations that came out of the madness of that era. The first episode airs on YouTube on May 10, 2019. Get familiar familia.

Inwood food pantry partnership formed

Just above Moon River, there is a mission.

An unassuming string of storefront shops, including Moon River Wine and Liquors, the New Wave Beauty Salon and a multiservice insurance agency, lines West 207th Street. Just above the colorful awnings is the Centro Evangelistico Pentecostes del Movimiento Misionero Mundial (MMM). The center is an outpost of an international faith-based organization, which runs a food pantry at the 207th Street location.

The non-profit provides food to about 500 people each week.

And now, local property owners are partnering to assist the MMM Food Pantry in its operations.

Gunfight in the Heights 
A police officer was shot – and a suspect killed – during an exchange of gunfire on the streets of Washington Heights on Thurs., Apr. 19th. ‎Though Officer Justin Vartanian has already been released from the hospital, the scene uptown on Thursday afternoon was one of chaos as gunfire broke out in broad daylight. 
According to NYPD officials, officers from the 34th Precinct responded to a 911 call of shots fired near 187th Street and Wadsworth Avenue at around 4:30 p.m. Upon arrival at that location, the officers observed and approached a male who matched a description given in the 911 call, Police Commissioner James O’Neill said. 
The suspect, who was reported to be carrying a handgun, then ran to a parking lot on the corner of Broadway, with an officer in pursuit, O’Neill said.  The suspect and Vartanian took position behind parked cars in the lot and began exchanging gunfire. “The suspect then fired three rounds at the police officer who was struck in the right armpit. The wounded officer fires back one time,” O’Neill said. The officer’s partner drove his unmarked police car into the parking lot and exchanged gunfire with the suspect, he said. 
The suspect was struck one time in the chest, and was transported to New York-Presbyterian Hospital where he was pronounced deceased just after 5 p.m., O’Neill said. Vartanian, a five-year veteran of the force, was brought to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital where he was listed in stable condition and has since been released.

Uptown Barbershop Trending Topic: Infidelity

By @led_black

Before we get into this, it is a must I provide a little context. My barbershop is the quintessential Dominican barbershop. Tons of people, music blaring, barbers dancing as they perform their duties. In short, a hive of activity; in many ways it is a place where a party is taking place and they just happen to cut hair. This is the kind of barbershop where you may find yourself being served little plastic cups of sweet espresso while you wait for your cut, as a whole host of street peddlers enter and exit the establishment to hawk bootleg DVD’s, clothes, sunglasses, watches. Maybe even furniture. Another thing that takes place at my barbershop and others like it is conversation. Straight up, loud, unfiltered, non-politically correct, sometimes anachronistic, man talk.

The topic on this particular outing was infidelity. For the most part, the general consensus among the barbers and the clientele was that women by nature will eventually cheat on their mates, so in order to mitigate the hurt from that inevitable occurrence, it was better to cheat before she does. In other words, pre-emptive cheating; cheat before getting cheated on. That way when the fateful day came, and everyone here was sure it would come; one could at least keep their head held high with the knowledge that they had their fair share of trysts, two-timing, affairs and adventures.

In my humble opinion, pre-emptive cheating like pre-emptive war is a recipe for a disaster but I was not going to voice my opinion and try to convert the convinced. Besides, it was much more fun to listen to the conversation, then to be shouted down for my ignorance. Anyway, there was an almost religious-like certainty to the whole thing. One dude even cited Eve as evidence that women were inherently deceitful and therefore untrustworthy. My man went back to Genesis to try to justify his argument. To me, it was quite comical the lengths that these men went to rationalize their philandering ways.

Breaking down the Budget

Liberty or liability?

The elimination of cash bail, particularly as used for misdemeanors and non-violent offenses, has long been a principal initiative of criminal justice reform advocates who argue that it unfairly impacts low-income residents.

And when the latest New York State budget was approved on March 31, many hailed the provisions that effectively did away with cash bail for minor offenses.

Speaking to reporters at a media roundtable on April 12, Alphonso David, Chief Counsel to Governor Andrew Cuomo, agreed that the measures reflected a change in course, one that would keep people out of the jail pipeline for minor offenses. “Because of those reforms, 90 percent of the people who are charged with non-violent offenses will remain out of jail,” said David. “We effectively ended cash bail for all misdemeanors and non-violent felonies.” The end of cash bail will take effect starting in January 2020.

Another criminal justice reform included a speedy trial provision, which reduces the length of pre-trial detention.

Hispanic Federation Gala raises over $2 million

Not a note.

Without a single syllable sung, Marc Anthony still brought the house down.

He was cited for his philanthropic work with the Maestro Cares foundation, his artistic and musical contributions, and his profound commitment to rebuilding Puerto Rico after Hurricane María.

And even with his Premio Orgullo (Pride Award) in hand at the American Museum of Natural History, and an attendant standing ovation, a humbled Marc Anthony said he was just glad to spend time with his idol – Lin-Manuel Miranda, who served as the Gala Chair for the 2019 Annual Spring Gala of the Hispanic Federation (HF). In addition, Anthony announced a $100,000 donation – part of the over $2 million dollars raised to support the work of the nation’s largest Latino nonprofit membership organization.

An accurate count matters

The clock is ticking on Census 2020.

As we prepare for this essential count of the nation’s population, we must ensure that no policy gets in the way of the most accurate results possible.

A recent ruling by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York agreed, blocking the inclusion of a proposed citizenship question in the Census 2020 forms.

The District Court understood that given the vitriolic conversation about immigration these days, and the state of massive fear and concerns caused by immigration policies that some consider inhumane, the inclusion of a citizenship question in Census 2020 would lead to a severe undercount. 
Immigrant populations, documented and/or not, would be less inclined to participate if they feel their safety and privacy are at risk.

As a consequence, state and cities with large immigrant populations – such as New York – stand to lose millions of dollars in federal funding destined for essential social service programs, for those who need it the most. The scarcity would create social chaos and also foment conflict between racial, ethnic and religious groups, at a delicate moment in history when such tensions are already on the rise.

The U.S. Department of Commerce, the federal agency in charge of Census 2020, has now appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) to overrule the mandate of the lower court and restitute the proposed citizenship question.

‪Ketamine: From Party Drug to Prescription Medicine‬

Ketamine’s ignominious start was as a psychedelic party drug with the street name of Special K.

Its future is as a promising intervention for treatment-resistant depression. Just this month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved esketamine, a form of ketamine, for the treatment of depression. It is the first truly new antidepressant medication to enter the market in the United States in almost forty years.

This arrival, however, is not without controversy. Especially in the wake of the opioid crisis, many experts express concerns about whether the party drug can be used legally without leading to abuse and addiction. 
Others argue that esketamine has the potential to help individuals whose depression is debilitating and unresponsive to other treatments. Here are five things to know about this drug that is all the rage these days.

UMA CARTA PARA WHIN - marquem o @whinderssonnunes ou a @luisasonza pra que essa mensagem o alcance. - Não precisa seguir o ig/ só precisa urgentemente fazer com que ele leia.

Oi meu amigo, oi meu irmão, oi ser humano lindo que não conheço pessoalmente, mas que tenho a maior consideração.
 A intimidade não é forçada, pois você sempre nos deu essa liberdade, por isso te chamo de amigo, te chamo de irmão, e em todas as horas os melhores se farão presente, seja na tua glória, seja no teu vazio de agora.
Não estou aqui por pena, não estou aqui pelo ibope, muito menos pelo seu reconhecimento, até porque não tem como né rsrs Você reconhecer algo por alguém que não conhece.
Então deixa que só eu faço isso, afinal você abriu as portas pra deixar te conhecer, até nesse momento só teu, tu se expande.
 Sabe whin mesmo que não veja com os olhos da alma, tu tá rodeado de gente que te ama, que ora por ti e que se preocupa muito com teu bem estar.
Eu sou uma dessas pessoas, que desde que soube o que se passa contigo, pensa em ti toda hora, ora por ti e se preocupa como se fosse alguém que está aqui do meu lado.
Faço essa carta, ouvindo o louvor espirito santo da Thyna Ramos e esse louvor fala exatamente o que tu precisa nesse momento, ouça.
A PALAVRA DELE DIZ QUE TU É MAIS  QUE VENCEDOR. 
Eu sei bem amigo a angústia que é não entender o porquê disso, o porquê que alcançou tanto, pra no final não significar nada, eu sei o que é querer sorrir de verdade, e o vazio da alma não permitir, eu sei bem o que é ter medo, o que é não faltar mais nada e ao mesmo tempo tudo. O que é não se sentir merecedor,  o porquê que está aqui, pra quê vim, porque existo... São tantos os questionamentos, as dúvidas, e sempre ali derrepente as forças te faltam...e os pensamentos de não querer mais existir, de acabar com tudo. 
Num instante que será infinito pra todos que te amam.
... aaaa como eu queria te colocar numa caixinha, te guardar de tudo isso, reservar pra ti os melhores sentimentos, as melhores sensações, os doces e mais ternos momentos que tu já viveu...Eu já ri teu riso, agora eu choro teu silêncio, saiba que se pensa em partir, me levará contigo. 
Continua nos comentários....

I Am A Dominican York

By @led_black

I am a Dominican York. According to the Urban Dictionary, a Dominican York is either a Dominican immigrant living and working in New York City or an American-born person of Dominican descent who was raised in NYC.

Originally the term was used derisively to refer to the drug dealers and criminals that were deported back to the Dominican Republic after being incarcerated in the states. Dominican New Yorkers have been slowly adopting the term over the years, sans the negative connotations.

I am a Dominican York. That term succinctly defines my existence. I was born in the U.S., but was raised in the Dominican Republic from when I was three months old until the age of five. Inside my little apartment in Washington Heights, it was the Dominican Republic; Mami ruled, Merengue played and mangu eaten, but outside of it, New York City and its accoutrements; Hip-Hop, graffiti and pizza beckoned.

I am a Dominican York. My parents on the other hand, even though they have lived here since the early 70′s, are Dominican. My mom has only a few words in her English language repertoire and while my dad has a more extensive vocabulary, the words he knows are usually curses and only uttered when he is inebriated. I still recall with horror the one incident that encapsulated our different and divergent worldviews.

Caravan of Care

They have seen people die.

Young children in the care of Catholic Charities, one of various service providers for the unaccompanied minors and separated children in New York City, have experienced stressful – and often painful – situations.

Luz Tavarez, the Director of Government and Community Relations for Catholic Charities, said that many of the children have mental health issues due to the trauma of their separation and violence they’ve witnessed in their home countries. “A lot have PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). They’ve experienced trauma,” said Tavarez. “Many of these children have witnessed people die.” In light of current projections, Catholic Charities will likely provide care for 8,000 unaccompanied children in 2019 – a high water mark.

Tavarez is ready to learn more.

She will take part in a fact-finding team the organization is leading to determine why Central American refugees continue to come to the United States.
