ByStefanos Chen Oct. 5, 2018 A few years ago, the gateways to the courtyard of Peter Bracichowicz’s co-op in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, were empty.

Here is what they told us. Frances Perkins was a sociologist and labor activist in New York, and was the first woman to serve in a presidential cabinet. Credit Anthony Camerano/Associated Press Supported by ByGinia Bellafante July 26, 2018 In an effort to correct the civic record left in public art, New York City officials announced in June that we would soon be seeing more statues of women on our streets and in our parks. Right now there are very few — a bronze of Gertrude Stein in Bryant Park, a sculpture of Eleanor Roosevelt in Riverside Park. About a mile north of her you can find Joan of Arc riding a horse, but really, what is Joan of Arc — who fought for many things, not one of them rent control — doing on the Upper West Side of … [Read more...] about More Women Deserve Statues in New York.

Chen July 4, 2018 When Mayor Bill de Blasio proposed earlier this month to change the way students are admitted to the city’s most elite public high schools, he was surrounded by dozens of enthusiastic students, union leaders and elected officials, amid signs proclaiming “All Kids Deserve a Chance.” Noticeably absent were representatives from one group that would be heavily affected by the change: Asian-Americans, whose children dominate those schools. “This cliché of, ‘If you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu’ really felt like it rang true,” said Congresswoman Grace Meng, a Queens Democrat and graduate of one of the schools, Stuyvesant High School, who was not invited to the event. “I don’t think with any other community if … [Read more...] about ‘A Huge Blind Spot’: Why New York Asians Feel Overlooked

A few facades seem to have faces — with windows as eyes, drapes for brows and a terrace or two smiling below.
