New York City and particularly Manhattan have lost a lot of residents, let alone tourists. We kind of forget how much we rely on tourists until they are no

Habari Gani Family,
This has been a year unlike any other. And, as we all continue to make adjustments, so too have we had to reimagine our annual fundraising event: Artful Autumn for Autism Awareness. Last year, we held a live art auction at Jadite Gallery in New York's Hell's Kitchen, and many of you joined us for an evening filled with art, music, wine and hors d'oeuvres, as everyone mingled and partook in our successful silent auction. This year, due to the ongoing pandemic, we unfortunately will not be able to meet in person, but we are pleased to announce that we will be taking our auction online, in this year's: Artful Autumn for Autism Awareness: 2020 Virtual Auction!

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of George H. Brins, of the Bronx, on November 3, 2020 at the age of 84. George was born on February 22, 1936 in the Bronx to Mary Brins (nee) Butler and George Brins. He graduated from Cardinal Hayes High School in 1954. George was inducted into the US Army in 1959 where he served his country proudly during the Korean War as an Ordinance Supply Specialist. He was a lifetime member and past commander of the Samuel H. Young American Legion Post 620 in the Bronx. George recently retired after a long career in the textile business and worked the past 24 years at Associated Textile Mills in Rye Brook. He will be remembered for his love and commitment to his family and friends, and his volunteer service to his community in which he lived. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and collecting coins and stamps. He was an avid Yankee and Eagles fan. He was a permanent fixture at the legion post on a daily basis. His greatest pleasure was spending time with his family in upstate NY. He is survived by his sister Deborah Pacella (nee) Brins; his nephews Vincent (Cheryl) Pacella, Stephen Pacella, and Paul Pacella. He is also survived by his grandnephews Anthony (Kaitlin) Pacella and Joseph Pacella, grandniece Lorraine Bleiwas, and great grandniece Rosemary Pacella. He was predeceased by his parents Mary and George Brins and brother in law Vincent J. Pacella. He will be missed by all who knew him. May he rest in peace. Friends are invited to join the family in a celebration of his life on Thursday, November 12, from 4 – 8 pm, at the Michael J. Higgins Funeral Home, 321 South Main Street, New City, NY, 10956. A service will be held on Friday, November 13, beginning at 10 am, at the funeral home followed by interment at Rose Hill Memorial Park, 101 Mill Street, Putnam Valley, NY, 10579. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Samuel H. Young American Legion Post, 1530 Hutchison River Parkway, Bronx, NY, 10461. As a reminder, all Covid-19 guidelines must be followed, and facial masks or coverings will be required at all times.
We are working with the City to remove trash bags from the sidewalk. Help us find a good candidate in the Bronx to participate in the citywide pilot
In the Bronx Times Reporter for Oct 2 - 8 , 2008 Frank Vernuccio has reached back to the JUNE 1992 issue of Commentary for a quote from George Weigal. That's a 28-year-old stale and moldy quote. Vernuccio goes on to aver that "Catholic nominees for appointed office have been harassed for their religion." Yet Roman Catholic and former Vice President Joseph Biden is campaigning for election as president of the US -- and has been and is being denied Holy Communion by the US Catholic Bishops. And Nancy Pelosi, another Roman Catholic, is the Speaker of the House of Representatives and next in line after Pence for the U S Presidency. And there's the late Antonin Scalia of the US Supreme Court, a member of the fascist Opus Dei.

Kings of the Bronx is such a sexist event. What about the Queens and other genders of the Bronx. I see only males are awarded. Is there one for the Queens of the Bronx where you have great female leaders in healthcare and other organizations? Maybe you should call it Leaders of the Bronx Aa
Your interview with Honorable D. Kaplan was very insightful. It is important to know how the courts operate. And to have such a qualified and thoughtful Judge to run the administration is amazing. Yes, I am biased I wan President of Tilden when Deborah was a member....seemed like yesterday. Best Wishes Bobby
Your Name and number counts.
