MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. DAY!

***A bit of History about MLK in New York City!***

*September 20,1958*
During a book tour for Stride Toward Freedom- The memoir about the year-long Montgomery Bus Boycott at Blumstein’s Department Store on 125 St in Harlem MLK was stabbed with a penknife by a deranged woman- Izola Ware Curry. He was rushed to Harlem Hospital where he underwent surgery. He was released on October 3.

#September 12, 1962
Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a speech at the Park Sheraton Hotel to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the issuance of Abraham Lincoln’s Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation.
He laid out his vision for the future of civil rights, saying the only way to move forward “is to make its declaration of freedom real, to reach back to the origins of our nation when our message of equality electrified an unfree world and reaffirm democracy by deeds as bold and daring as the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation.

#June 12,1963
24 Hours after Medger Evans was assassinated Dr. King delivered the commencement address at CCNY’s Lewisohn Stadium.
King held the audience as he always did, his soaring, poetic, prophetic rhetoric leading to hope for a time
“when all of God’s children … will be able to join hands all over this nation and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual

‘Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty, we are free at last!’

It was a precursor to the iconic words that were to ring out to 250,000 people at the Lincoln Memorial two months later: “I have a dream… ”

#August 28, 1963
The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom
2 New Yorkers A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin played essential roles by joining forces with MLK. King’s “I Have a Dream” has resonated ever since.

#December 15,1964
Martin Luther King is named an Honorary New Yorker. Mayor Wagner honors Dr. King with the City of NY Medallion of Honor. On December 11, 1964 King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a speech at the Park Sheraton Hotel to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the issuance of Abraham Lincoln’s Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation.
MLK delivered several sermons at Riverside Church- On this day he urged immediate withdrawal from Vietnam.

#February 23, 1968
King’s last address in New York City
He paid tribute to W.E. DuBois on his 100th Birthday.
He said Dr. Dubois has left us but he has not died- The spirit of freedom is not buried in the grave of the valiant.

There are several MLK “namesakes” in New York including
MLK High School near Lincoln Center
125 St became MLK Blvd.
A bust of MLK stands outside Esplanade
Gardens in Harlem.
It features words from “I have a dream…

New York State has celebrated MLK Day since its inception in 1986.

The Bronx Provides Inspiration And Community For Painter Daniel Hauben 01/31/2021

The Bronx Provides Inspiration And Community For Painter Daniel Hauben

Recently had a great Zoom conversation with Daniel Hauben about his current passion - surrealism.

Some of you may remember seeing his work of the #ArthurAve Market in my virtual tour of Belmont in The Bronx with New York Adventure Club.

Stay tuned for more on my most recent conversation with Danny!

The Bronx Provides Inspiration And Community For Painter Daniel Hauben Daniel Hauben grew up at the intersection of Boston and Eastchester Road in an apartment complex known as the Hillside Homes. “In the mid-’60s there was [the] beginning of changes in the neighborhood and gang action and my mother discovered syringes on the roof,” he recalls. “It was time to ...

Here's to 2021 - a New Year with better things to come!

12/28/2020

Check out my latest - a virtual visit to Arthur Avenue. Doing this virtually has given me an opportunity to expand on the history of the neighborhood and the people who have made it so special.

What's so special about New York City's neighborhood of Belmont, you ask? From over 30 mom & pop shops serving everything from tantalizing cheeses and sausages to warm bread and freshly-filled cannoli — to being home to a world-premiere zoo, botanical garden, and university — this Italian community is steeped in history, not to mention some of the best food in the Big Apple. But how did this Bronx neighborhood go from a rural enclave to a lively hub for food, arts, and culture? It's time to take a virtual trip to the "old neighborhood" and understand why it has a special place in the hearts of hundreds of thousands of Italian-Americans in the metropolitan area.

Join New York Adventure Club and licensed NYC tour guide Susan Mills Birnbaum on Wednesday, January 6 @ 1pm ET as we explore the Bronx neighborhood of Belmont — often referred to as Arthur Ave, this close-knit neighborhood dating back centuries has been home to dozens of eateries that showcase the authentic tastes of Italy, earning it the reputation of the "Real" Little Italy of New York City.
