The Floating Kitchen - My brother-in-law, Thomas Perone, runs a company in Brooklyn he's spent the last few years building up from nothing. In the storm last week, he lost his kitchen and everything in it, when Red Hook was flooded. His business was totally wiped out. Since then, he's been using borrowed supplies, neighbors' kitchens, and donated food to send out tray after tray of hot food to shelters, clean-up crews, and families in the Rockaways, Gerritsen Beach, Staten Island (all over the island), Coney Island, Red Hook, Howard Beach, and Belle Harbor. He's been cooking non-stop. Even though he basically lost his business, he's been sending out food all week to help others. It's pretty inspiring. Neighbors, friends and relatives have been chipping in to buy the food that he's cooking and the basic kitchen supplies he's using. The guy's been hammering out tons of trays.

Pasted below is the letter GBC sent to the NYSDEC Bureau of Wildlife and our local elected officials re: the plan to eradicate the Mute Swans. If not you're not aware of this plan, you can read about on the link below. The deadline to comment on this plan is today. Whom it may concern: I am writing as a representative of Gerritsen Beach Cares, Inc. and the community of Gerritsen Beach. We are aware of a NYS Department of Environmental Conservation plan to exterminate all of the Mute Swans in New York State and as an organization and community we are universally opposed to this plan. We are a waterfront community of approximately 10,000, with the majority of residents having lived here our entire lives (as did our parents and grandparents), so we have much more exposure to, and experience with, Mute Swans than the average citizen of New York State. We believe this experience qualifies us to make observations about the NYS DEC extermination plan and comment on the reasons for the plan that have been publi . ...

PLEASE SHARE!! THE SECRET SANDY CLAUS PROJECT IS CELEBRATING ITS FIRST BIRTHDAY TODAY!! HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!!! READ BELOW: One year ago today, someone had what seemed like a crazy idea at the time. The idea was to collect as many toys as possible, dress up like Santa and hand deliver those toys to the homes of as many children affected by Hurricane Sandy as possible. On December 9th, 2012, I posted a call for toy donations as well as for families with children to sign up for deliveries leading up to Christmas. An idea that began 1 year ago today has transformed into a journey that has led to thousands of families receiving help over the course of the past year thanks to the generosity of so many people; people who donated toys, their money or volunteered their precious time. Even people who were far away or even people in your own backyard who have lost everything as well joined in to help the project. We now are embarking on an even bigger sleigh ride together. and we NEED YOUR HELP. The story of the ...

Despite the weather we had an excellent turnout for the Gerritsen Beach relief effort. Citiquiet, Champion and The Home Depot donated windows and installation to numberous homes still devastated by the effects of Hurricane Sandy, 13 months ago. It is rewarding to help those who suddenly ended ended up on the downside of advantage however where is FEMA and the insurance companies? It still looks like a war zone in this neighborhood and there is no reason for that 13 months later.

The Wall Street Journal editorialized that the Biggert-Waters legislation should not be reversed, or even delayed. This will make flood insurance premiums for anyone living near water to skyrocket. 10 to 20 thousand a year for flood insurance is not a laughing matter.

Tell that to the people in Broad Channel, Breezy Point, Far Rockaway, Coney Island, Hamilton Beach, Gerritsen Beach, Canarsie, Nassau County and Staten Island. That's only New York! We're the wealthiest one percent? Pigs...

The day after the election. Anthony was ecstatic because he won Marine Park and Gerritsen beach by a good margine. 15k voters in Carnarsiewere given free Subway sandwiches to vote democrat. Allen Maisel is a nice guy, 25 years with the Board of Ed" he gave up the Assemblyman job, 3 days a week for $90k a year. Council makes a bit more for 20 hours. The Democrats in Brooklyn have long been under investigations for various crimes (ex sen Kruger is doing 8 years for bribery). Millions of dollars have been funneled through Bergen FIELD Complex over the years. A non profit is setup there (rented?) in which they get money for Senior activities etc. all paid employees. When their were support the troops rally's etc they'd use Marine Park, why when you have millions invested in Bergen Beach. Simple answer, most people don't know we're it is. That is why they need to keep it their private little secret. $5 a vote. The real winner was the Subway owner, I'd bet 25¢ to 50¢ was given to a dem who arranged the deal. ...

With my sis Elizabeth Leath and the Brooklyn girls - seeing devastated Red Hook and Rockaway, friends from HS and past lives who just needed the offer of help, clean laundry and hugs. Elizabeth Corney Suhr and James Suhr who allowed me to help them clean out their basement and their treasures, and Wendy McLaughlin who came by in a state of absolute shock and anger of what happened to her mom's home.

What Happened to Working-Class New York? As images of wealth abound, the struggles of ordinary workers have become invisible. Joshua Freeman April 16, 2013 | This article appeared in the May 6, 2013 edition of The Nation. Hurricane Sandy pushed into view echelons of working-class New Yorkers normally hidden behind workplace walls or in obscure neighborhoods, or made invisible by familiarity and indifference. There, suddenly center stage, was the old, heavily Catholic, white working class. Some of the most devastated parts of the city, like Breezy Point and Gerritsen Beach, seemed frozen in time, neighborhoods of Irish- and Italian-American policemen, firefighters, blue-collar workers and politicians, still reflecting a New York dominated by European immigrants and their children. As on 9/11, heroic rescue efforts by the Fire Department exposed how white and male it has remained, even as the city’s population has become ever more diverse. Newer immigrants, too, were thrust into the spotlight, like Phil . ...

I've been going over alot of things, mentally, lately. It's not a bad idea, really, to do a bit of a review of certain aspects of one's life. Being, in my opinion, a bit "long in the tooth" as compared to others (much younger folk, of course :) ), there are quite a few memories to scroll through. Of course, a huge folder is under the main heading of MUSIC. And it's come to my attention that I have been a fortunate son, indeed. When I first started to discover music, way back when, I wasn't actually a musician---just a kid that liked the idea of being a musician. This started when I saw my first inspiration, my cousin, Charles Johnson (or "cousin Charlie" as he was called, to differentiate from my other muse, Uncle Charlie...), playing those great Gretsch drums with his band at some party at his house, back when we all lived in Gerritsen Beach, Bklyn.

Tomorrow is the first day of school in Gotham, so I took DD for a mother-daughter lunch at Applebee's in Sheepshead Bay to end the summer on a high note. We had a great time joking and talking about her seeing all her school friends. Then we stopped at a location at the end of Gerritsen Beach where they're filming a cop movie. [Those photos will appear on my Crime Fictionista blog. ] After that bit of excitement we drove over to the Gerristen Beach Library to see if renovations had been completed after the destruction dealt by Hurricane Sandy. It's scheduled to reopen this fall. PTL. It's one of my fav places.

Honestly, if you want to impress me, help someone who can't help themselves. The most fulfilling thing I've ever done was the work I did at Gerritsen Beach. I've never felt more satisfied with myself as a human being knowing I gave my time and skills to a community without any expectation of compensation or reward. It was not charity, the church gave me something I never thought I could have again, which was goodness in my heart.
