Citi Bike expands to Inwood, Washington Heights

Get ready to ride.

Bicycle enthusiasts living uptown have new reason to celebrate, as Citi Bike has expanded its bike share service into Inwood and Washington Heights for the first time.

The expansion will bring 36 new Citi Bike stations into Northern Manhattan, increasing the bike share service’s coverage area across the entire island of Manhattan.

Operated by Lyft, Citi Bike now has 20,000 bikes in its New York City fleet, making it the largest bike share system in the world outside of China.

On April 7, the city’s Department of Transportation (DOT) joined City Council Transportation Chair Ydanis Rodríguez, bike share advocates and community-based organizations at an Inwood event to celebrate the expansion.

Rodríguez hailed the arrival of bike share services as a transportation alternative in typically underserved communities.

City updates “two-case rule” on public school closures

New York City has changed a rule that required public schools to close after two unrelated cases of Covid-19 were confirmed at the same time, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced.

The so-called “two-case rule” forced an entire public school building to close for up to 10 days if two unrelated cases were verified by the Department of Education (DOE) Situation Room.

After announcing earlier in the week that he would alter the much-maligned rule, de Blasio revealed the updated protocol at a press conference on April 8.

Under the new rules, schools will have a 10-day closure if four or more cases are detected within a week, spread across different classrooms and traced to a known exposure in the school.

Two or more cases in a week will trigger increased testing at the school, de Blasio said, with the number of students and staff randomly tested doubling from 20 percent to 40 percent.

If there is one confirmed case in a classroom, all students in that class will switch to remote learning.

It was, in his words, “weird.”

A newly minted – and reluctant – celebrity was honored in Washington Heights this week for his role in helping New Yorkers secure hard-to-get appointments for COVID-19 vaccines.

Huge Ma is a software engineer who created TurboVax, a Twitter bot and accompanying website that aggregates real-time data on available vaccine appointments at city- and state-operated sites.

Ma’s system tweets out info on available slots and posts them to the website in real-time, allowing people a better chance at quickly grabbing an appointment.

The streamlined process has been a hit with New Yorkers, who were eager for an alternative to the plethora of government-run vax websites, which could be arduous to navigate and sometimes malfunctioned.

On April 6, mayoral candidate Andrew Yang and Congressman Ritchie Torres organized a press conference outside of the Armory in Washington Heights, which has served as a vaccine hub since January, to thank Ma for his public service, which they said has “saved lives.”

State budget deal reached

State legislators and Governor Andrew Cuomo have reached a budget deal.

The $212 billion budget agreement, announced late in the day on Tues., April 6 by Cuomo, State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, is designed to boost the state’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic while providing rent relief, child care assistance, small business aid, green economy investments and funding for broadband internet access.

Other budget highlights include: a tax hike on the state’s millionaires, a $2.1 billion fund for undocumented immigrants and other workers who have been excluded from COVID-19 assistance and a record $29.5 billion in school funding.

“New York was ambushed early and hit hardest by COVID, devastating our economy and requiring urgent and unprecedented emergency spending to manage the pandemic,” Cuomo said in a statement. “Thanks to the state’s strong fiscal management and relentless pursuit to secure the federal support that the pandemic demanded, we not only balanced our budget, we are also making historic investments to reimagine, rebuild and renew New York in the aftermath of the worst health and economic crisis in a century.”

The budget features a $311 billion infrastructure plan — the most expensive in New York’s history — which will create thousands of jobs across the state, Cuomo said.

Power Prose

Play + poetry = power.

Inwood resident Donnie Welch’s new TV show, Let’s Write About, premieres April 10th on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN). With a pinch of Mr. Rogers and a dash of Bill Nye, the show is aimed at young children of all abilities.

Each episode’s theme is designed to inspire writing and poetry.

Welch filmed The Let’s Write About Food episode in his mint-green kitchen. Children learn to make dough, discover fractions, acquire problem solving skills, and use food as a subject for poems. Songs and movement are peppered throughout the 28-minute show.

“Rhythm helps us understand poetry,” Welch said. “It’s such an important aspect of writing poetry and verse.”

Scenes are visually described. Sign language interpreter Miriam Lerner narrates the dialogue. Visual and audio descriptions not only make the show more accessible, it also reinforces learning for children still developing reading and vocabulary skills.

NY legalizes adult ma*****na use

Adult-use cannabis in New York State has been made legal.

Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation on Wed., Mar. 31st.

The bill signing comes after Cuomo, State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie announced on March 28 that an agreement had been reached on the legislation.

Effective immediately, New Yorkers 21 and older can smoke or consume ma*****na and related products.
The legislation will allow people with medical conditions to access medical ma*****na and permit home cultivation of cannabis for patients.

Penalties have been eliminated for possession by adults of less than 3 ounces of ma*****na. Greater quantities can be possessed inside the home if stored in a secure place, away from children.

In addition, the bill creates automatic expungement of criminal records or resentencing for anyone with a previous ma*****na conviction that would now be legal under the law.

Stacks and Racks

It is a literary largesse, monumentally.

When Tom Burgess passed away in June 2020 due to Covid-19, the Word Up Community Bookshop volunteer left the nonprofit’s founder with a posthumous gift.

“Tom had a one-bedroom apartment in Inwood that was stocked floor-to-ceiling with books and records. He also had four separate storage units filled with the same,” said Word Up founder Veronica Liu, who estimated the collection of titles to number in the “tens of thousands.”

“These were items he collected throughout his life and left all of it to me. I couldn’t believe it,” she said.

Risk Forward

We might have imagined that with the vaccine rollout out, this topsy turvy world would feel more settled, but that is not how life goes. The pandemic has been a storm of uncertainty. We have spent more than a year wondering, worrying, waiting, wanting. And it continues: Is it really okay to meet in person? Mask or no mask? Why are cases in Europe on the rise again? Will the vaccine protect against the new variants? And so it goes…

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Victoria Labalme, consultant, coach, Hall of Fame keynote speaker, and author of the book Risk Forward. The opening page begins, “Some people in life know exactly what they want to achieve. This is a book for the rest of us.” For all of us figuring out what the post-pandemic world will be, this wise and creative book takes us on a journey that is sure to bolster our mental health and enhance our abilities to thrive in these particularly uncertain times.

We might have imagined that with the vaccine rollout out, this topsy turvy world would feel more settled, but that is not how life goes. The pandemic has been a storm of uncertainty.

Laughter expands the soul of Americans to a planetary scale! (Double smile: an April Fool's gift to America from Ukraine) Divide the bagel in half and you will see that there are two smiles in each bagel. A smile is a kiss of the soul! Laughter is the daily glow of the mind! April 1 - World Day of Humor and Laughter. In Australia, this day begins literally with laughter - the laugh of the mocking bird kookaburra. In England and Germany it is "Fools' Day", in Israel - "Fools' Competition" (card players), in Spain - "Fools' Day", in France - "Fish Day", in Japan - "Puppet Day", in Scotland - " Day of the cuckoo ", ... In India, members of laughter clubs organize processions, chant "Ho ho, ha ha ha," dance and clap their hands, stop to laugh, and move on. April Fools' Day is a day of jokes all over China. In America, April 1 is the day of practical jokes and laughter. For example, on April 1, 1835, in one of the most popular publications, a message appeared about the invention of a powerful new telescope, with which you can carefully study the inhabitants of the moon. According to the publication, sleepwalkers looked like winged monkeys. Not a single reader doubted this invention. In Germany, the tradition of celebrating April 1 dates back to the 17th century. The tradition was called "Send to April". Children were sent to the pharmacy with errands like "go get pigeon milk" or "get us some mosquito fat." In Russia, they are not sent to "April", but to the ass! The evil lady shouts to the peasant: I wanted to send you, but I see that you are already there! ... In the East, they say: "He who does not have a wife can go to war to find her, who has several wives, he constantly lives in the war." Three wives are three father-in-law! As one Pakistani journalist commented, “She used to be the mistress of my heart, and now she is the owner of my wallet. Imagine that there are three such housewives! " ... The "Encyclopedia of World Humor" can be published in America (for the military). With examples of African wisdom: * With persistence, you can dig a well with a needle. * The smaller the lizard, the more it hopes to become a crocodile. Humor is like healing acupuncture for the mind. Three minutes of laughter equals fifteen minutes of gymnastics. Humor is a medicine with an unlimited shelf life. Unfortunately, now the inhabitants of the whole earth suffer from a common disease - psycho-addiction, from which there is no vaccination yet. The planet, like a drug addict, "got on the needle." Psychologists recommend laughing in moments of depression, laughing artificially, and a miracle happens. As a result of vibrations, each cell of the body is filled with light, cosmic energy. Laughter expands the soul! Humor strengthens our immune system and helps fight COVID-19 and other diseases. A cheerful mood is a vaccine against depression, a disinfection of the soul. Laughter gives birth to hormones of happiness! Mikhail Aroshenko, laughing therapist, editor of the "Gorilka +" magazine, Dnipro, Ukraine, [email protected] * Attached photo: Euphoria from the taste of "double smile" and dandelion wine. I propose a business project: to release bagels with the inscription: "Find two smiles in me and eat with a friend!" ** Colleagues! If you post this note, please send me the posting page by email to: [email protected] *** Aroshenko Mikhail Mikhailovich, 49052, Ukraine, Dnipro, st.

So nice to see MT coverage regarding the loss of Inwood's Bird Man James Cataldi, the opening of the temporary Inwood Branch of NYPL with Cheramie Mondesire quoted, and the review of the collage show at Kiro Kirin in this week's ManhattanTimes! The cover titled "Sweet Streets" with the nice shot of an Ice Cream truck at the 190th Street station head was also very nice to see for this spring-like warm-up!

Hello to my neighbors. As we slog through the slush and approach the one-year anniversary of the lock-down, I’m planning a photo installation on the fence at Seaman Ave. & Beak St. I’m using Polaroid photos of greenery and flowers printed onto large pieces of canvas, in hopes of providing encouragement for us all. The photos will go up this Saturday/6th around mid-morning, weather permitting, for several hours. Please come take a look!
