The weather is superb. The best place to enjoy a World Cup match, we’re told, is in a 121-degree sauna. Not for the great visuals — it can be a touch foggy — “but when your team is playing bad and you’re stressed, your body is still happy,” said Rustam Zaripov, the owner of the Russian Baths of Brooklyn in Brighton Beach. The bath house was just one of the recommendations in The Times’s guide to watching the World Cup in New York City, which found interesting bars, restaurants and gathering places where you can watch matches with expatriates, immigrants and fans from all 32 countries. For yesterday’s opening match between Russia and Saudi Arabia, we stopped by the baths, where running commentary … [Read more...] about New York Today: Soccer in the Sauna

Levine May 24, 2018 Good morning on this cloudless Thursday. “Unsheltered,” an investigative series published this week in The New York Times, looks at the city’s affordable housing crisis and how the system created to protect tenants broke down. “The Vanishing Affordable Apartment” explores how landlords have exploited loopholes and a lack of accountability in the overburdened housing system to force out rent-regulated residents.

NEW YORK — Public School 39, also known as the Henry Bristow School, sits on the corner of Sixth Avenue and Eighth Street in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn. The distinctive brick building, with its classic mansard roof, opened in 1877, making it the oldest public school in New York. It’s where Rockies relief pitcher Adam Ottavino attended elementary school. His mother, Eve, has taught at PS 39 for 25 years, and currently teaches in the same classroom where her son learned how to multiply and divide in the fourth grade. “Every year, I make Adam come in and talk to my kids about working hard and dreaming big,” Eve said. “This is a really old school, and it was built for much shorter people. Adam’s 6-foot-5, so he barely fits in the doorways. He has to duck everywhere. But once he was a little kid in this school, just like these kids, so I tell them that anything can happen.” Plenty is happening for Ottavino. At age 32, in his … [Read more...] about Adam Ottavino in a New York state of mind as he returned to the city, and family roots, that shaped him.
Joe Torrillo never had aspirations to be a firefighter. He went to school for engineering and wanted to be an architect. After being convinced to take the firefighter exam test by his friends, Torrillo took the test, and admits he did it as a joke. “I took the test on a whim,” said Torrillo, who spoke during the final installment of the Juneau Glacier Valley Rotary Club’s Pillars of America series at Centennial Hall Wednesday. “I was the only one of my friends who passed. I just wanted to get appointed and then resign the next day so I could bring it up when I went golfing with my friends.” But, Torrillo did not leave. In fact, he took a job at the New York City Fire Department in 1981 when he was 25. Torrillo worked through the ranks and eventually he became a lieutenant. After an apartment fire on New Year’s Eve 1996 caused a major injury to his hand, Torrillo was assigned office duty. Torrillo treated that as a new opportunity and took on a … [Read more...] about Former New York City firefighter tries to ‘Re-Unite’ the US
