Locals Organizing “Thanksgiving for Sandy Survivors”

Posted on: November 14th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

With the region still reeling in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Thanksgiving assumes an even greater importance. Here at home, many in the neighborhood are still without proper utilities, and might not have the ability to celebrate the holiday.

But a group of locals aim to change that with a FREE feast for those most affected by the storm. Catering company Jessica Alfreds Homemade and others are behind the effort, which is planned for November 22 at St. Mark’s in the Bowery.

Organizers are currently crowdsourcing cash and food donations to help make the vision a reality.

DATE: THANKSGIVING DAY- THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22
TIME: 1 PM TIL 4 PM (OR UNTIL WE RUN OUT OF FOOD)
LOCATION: ST. MARK’S CHURCH IN THE BOWERY (10TH STREET BETWEEN 2ND AND 3RD)

An eight-minute video surfaced online this week showing three teens being arrested by a gaggle of 7th Precinct officers on East Broadway. The boys are seen getting cuffed while pressed up against parked cars outside Seward Park. Iglesia Cristiana Primitiva church is visible in the background. What’s rather disturbing is the plainclothes cop who, for […]

100 Montaditos on Ludlow Street is Officially Kaput

For 100 Montaditos, it’s one culture, zero ways to do it. At least on on the battered upper section of Ludlow Street. When it came to the Lower East Side iteration, the Spanish-based fast casual chain was an epic fail and a perfect example of how evading the host community can hurt in the long run. […]

The current lessee of the city-owned parcels comprising 235-247 Cherry Street – formerly the Pathmark Pharmacy – is now suing the Housing […]
