    Bay Ridge has fantastic public schools. That is the reason why so many people want to live here, pay high rents and will live in illegal apartments. Parents want  their children to get the best education.    Of course Marty Golden  has been pushing vouchers (also called scholarships) and  charter schools for years.   My […]

    Bay Ridge Unity Task Force = It’s Really the Bay Ridge Breakfast Club!

      The Bay Ridge Community Task Force was established in 2000. Newspapers credit former District Attorney, Charles Hynes for initiating the task force. There is very little information about the Bay Ridge Task Force online – no website, FB page, etc.  While the group was started with good intentions to encourage unity across different religions and cultural backgrounds,  it […]

    Looking at Candidate Khader El-Yateem – Bay Ridge

       Pictures, speeches and press releases can hide the truth.   Khader El-Yateem keeps talking about he united people through the Bay Ridge Breakfast Club, oh I mean Unity Task Force.  Years ago, the Bay Ridge Unity Task Force did events in the community to encourage people to come together. The Task Force stopped doing the events […]

    Two New Preschools for Bay Ridge

    Nicole Malliotakis Doesn’t Know Her Own Story so She Can’t Comprehend Anyone Else’s Either.

        In the Crain’s article, writer Rosa Goldensohn pressed Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis for details on her father’s immigration process to America. Malliotakis said, “I can ask him, I never really asked him the specific details about how he came here,” she said. While we were growing up, we didn’t need to ask our families for their immigration story, […]

    El-Yateem Points Out that MTA Flyers were not Translated into Different Languages…..Neither is His Church’s Website

    When I first heard of Khader El-Yateem, I went to his church website to see who he was. The church’s out-of-date website has announcements about events from November 2016 and Easter 2016. The only thing translated to Arabic on the site was the word Welcome.   El-Yateem’s church  has a survey online, but if  you were […]
