Esan was certainly not the first. Off the top of my head, the Bangkok and Mamasan's predate Esan and I think there might be one or two more.
Sean, working people use food stamps.
Sorry, City, but this endorsement is a smack in the face to all the voters who chose Lovely Warren. Liberals (and I am one) are often considered intellectual elitists--this is elitism at its finest. Who are you to decide that their votes don't count?
If the community schools would also offer social services to people in the neighborhood, it would be a huge step toward adopting Geoffrey Canada's visionary Harlem project in every one of New York State's Big Five school districts. Unless we can help children at the very beginning--read in utero -- there are no schools that can make a dent in the mess we have gotten ourselves into.
What I see is a fairly good-looking apartment complex being built on an almost nasty site across from the Gleason Works. How is that a bad thing? That the George Eastman House would prefer to have ownership of the site, but has clearly been unwilling to deal honestly with the folks who own it, well, huh, too bad. Right now, if you are visiting the GEH grounds, the view is "impacted" by the unsightly lot on University.
Yikes! So if 90 percent of the country is in favor of background checks for gun and ammo purchases at conventions and on the Internet, which ARE NOT checked currently, meaning crazy people can purchase such weapons and show a up at a movie theater and kill people that could be my friends and family and that's democracy???
I love it when, in the middle of a city schools discussion, someone ALWAYS says that the problem is parenting. Of course that's a problem. But unless you have a solution for that, the schools still need to deal with poorly parented students. That's where the discussion has to start.
I am continually sorry that Manny Rivera's Children's Zone never went anywhere. That would be where the magic would happen.
