9 Links to Kick Around
(The latest footwear offerings from Park Delicatessen, above)
Some offerings turned up by Google Alerts, readers, and other sources, all of which are worth clicking:
- A nice write-up of the extremely important work that SOS Crown Heights is doing to stop violence in our community on the NYT blog CityRoom.
- The Journal covers the unveiling of P-Tech (formerly Paul Robeson High School), in which the DOE will partner with IBM to offer a six-year program to high school students that will lead to an associate's degree in computer science and a fast-track to an IBM job.
- The show "To Gather" opens at Five Myles Gallery on Saturday (they also were the subjects of a good recent article from Patch). From their website:
- On Sunday (August 7), Heart of Brooklyn presents a Free Summer Sunday, with no-cost admission to all six of their partner institutions (The Brooklyn Museum, the Children's Museum, the Prospect Park Zoo, the Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Public Library, and Prospect Park - and yes, admission is always free to the last two).
- NY1 sent cameras to cover the opening of the Crown Heights Gold exhibit, where the Brooklyn Historical Society will be hosting an Artist Talk on Thursday, August 11.
- Chabad.info has a fascinating article and interview documenting the role of the Crown Heights Jewish community in supporting their brethren as they were persecuted by the Soviet Union.
- The FP Reading Series returns on Monday, August 15 with "Missed Connections."
- Even further down the line, the Washington Avenue - Prospect Heights Association hosts Wash Ave Rocks, featuring food, fashion, and family-friendly events, on Saturday, August 20th.
- And finally, one that I meant to post ages ago, an in-depth look at Steve the Tree Branch Breaker that's definitely worth a read (thanks to MikeF for the tip).
