Dogs help teach New York City students lessons about animal welfare | NY Daily News

BY Lisa L. Colangelo Some cuddly canines are helping teach New York City school students serious lessons about animal welfare.

Crossing Broadway: 7 Questions For Robert W. Snyder

BY Led Black (@Led_Black) Far too many people still view Washington Heights through the prism of the recent past. Crime, drugs, and rampant lawlessness―all of which scarred the neighborhood in the late ’80s and early ’90s―are the first things that come to mind. In fact, Washington Heights has emerged phoenix-like from the ashes of the […]

Bringing a Little Color to a Passage at the 191st Street Station | NY Times

By SANDRA E. GARCIA The tunnel that connects Broadway to the 191st Street subway station was a little creepy. And the rats didn’t help.

Even when he arrived, traveling over thousands of miles aloft in the air, and holding fast to his mother, he was, in fact, not yet here. His mother Rosanna […]

By WILLY STALEY On a recent Saturday afternoon, Eugene Kang sat in the middle of Terminal Skateshop, telling a story about a problem customer, a neighborhood barber who came in looking to buy a board.

Inwood NYC in 1881 | My Inwood

By Cole Thompson “With the usual brilliant consistency of nomenclature of places, the plot is called Inwood, probably because it is neither in nor near any wood of any sort and never could have been, and when the name of Inmarsh would have been infinitely more appropriate if not picturesque.” In 1881, Inwood, of all […]

The Light At The End of the Tunnel

BY Led Black (@Led_Black) Art has a way of transforming things. Old things. Things that are long overdue, practically begging, for transformation. Things such as Tunnel Street.
