LEE LORCH, 1915-2014 Lee Lorch, a mathematics professor who was renowned for his involvement in a wide range of anti-racism and other progressive movements for decades, died of natural causes on February 28 in Toronto, at the age of 98. A widely-circulated New York Times obituary presents much of Lee Lorch's life story. Born on Sept. 20, 1915 at in Manhattan to Adolph Lorch and Florence Mayer Lorch, he was a graduate of Townsend Harris High School. He attended Cornell University and the University of Cincinnati, where he earned a doctorate in mathematics. During World War Two, he served in the Pacific with the U.S. Army Air Corps, and returned home to teach math at City College in New York. Like millions of veterans, he could not find a place to live, until he and his wife Grace and daughter Alice moved into the huge Stuyvesant Town development on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, along with 25,000 other people. There, the Lorches entered into a lifelong struggle against racism. African-Americans were not ...
Yesterday's somewhat enigmatic post clarified: standing in the middle of Stuyvesant Town, while a 20-something real estate agent tells me that we are really in Gramercy Park, and that the 2 BR we just saw is really the 3 BR that was advertised because you can make a windowless box in the living room into a 3rd BR.
Lee Lorch Just Passed Away Who was he? A soft-spoken professor of mathematics who with his wife Gloria led a campaign to desegregate Stuyvesant Town on eastside Manhattan in 1946, an early instance of biracial action in the postwar Civil Rights Era. He was a leader in organizing a committee to end discrimination in the housing development, which eventually totaled 1,800 tenants. Some 3,500 residents (all White people) petitioned the mayor of New York City and the City Council to support anti-discrimination legislation. At one point the couple invited a Black family to live in their apartment with them. Professor Lorch was fired from several college teaching jobs until he was forced to go to Canada to find work. Altho the Supreme Court refused to review the case, ultimately the owner of the development, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, was forced to begin admitting Black families. Ms. Lorch made headlines by comforting one of the Little Rock 9 students when she walked thru jeering crowds to ...

I played a game of pickup soccer today and dominated because everyone on the pitch was smaller and weaker than I am, ran a 4.8 40 on the 3rd time out of 5 and now I'm stuck mostly hoofing the trip from Stuyvesant Town to Sheepshead Bay because its 4 in the morning suddenly. I put a ton of mileage on today and I'm only getting older. You'd think I'd know better by now, but clearly I'm just never, ever going to learn. Oh well, go Yankees.
Fun Fact for all our "Black Squirrel Fans" The "Black Squirrel" is actually a variant of the Eastern Gray Squirrel. It is thought that the black variant developed its dark coat to better absorb heat in colder climates. Although considered rare in many areas, it is the dominant variety in most of Ontario, Quebec, certain areas of the Northeastern United States, and as far south as Maryland and Virginia. Black squirrels, appearing to be identical to the red squirrels in the area, are also fairly common in the midwestern United States, particularly in some communities in southwestern Iowa, such as Council Bluffs, Manilla, and Missouri Valley. Black squirrels may also be found in Marysville, Kansas, Omaha, Nebraska and within the confines of Stuyvesant Town in New York City. In the United Kingdom, a colony of black squirrels has existed around the town of Letchworth Garden City for many years. They have also been seen in the Fox Lake area in Illinois and Northern Ohio.

The scarest Halloween ever -- happened last night in Stuyvesant Town/ Peter Cooper Village when Hurricane Sandy touched down on East 20th Street. The elderly neighbors were already terrified by media and government warnings -- and before you knew it -- the East River made its way -- nearly to First Avenue from Avenue C and the FDR Drive. The surfers had to restrain themselves from jumping in the intense tide. My main concern was protection my daughters -- Grace and Kristin. But, with no heat, no hot water, and no electricity -- it has been challenging. With pitch black stairwells and hallways, our home of 20,000 people became a living nightmare. I got stuck the elevator and had force my way out as the power failed. It felt like the Titanic movie! The Real Moms of Studyvesant Town -- me and my two best friends -- Annemarie Lawson and Heli David -- in my building organized a Hurricane Sandy Party. It was a good way to keep on eye on the teenagers and provide a service to the building. The pot luck dishes w ...

When I was 12 years old, in 1979, I was growing up on the lower east side of Manhattan; an area that is referred to today as the East Village, but when I was that age it was called Alphabet City. My friends and I would often go to the rooftops of our apartment complex, Stuyvesant Town, and look out at our world around us. To the north was the Empire State Building, and to our south were the Twin Towers. My whole world back then existed between these two landmarks. They were touchstones for us, as sure as the North Star. I still have dreams where I am on that rooftop with Billy, Peter, and Mike. In 2001, I was in Vermillion, while my ex-wife was completing her master's degree, when I got a phone call from my brother telling me to turn on the news. And there was the horrific sight of Tower 1, with that grotesque plume of smoke drifting to the east. No more than two minutes after I started watching, Tower 2 was struck, and our whole world changed. I watched as the Towers collapsed, in utter and total ...
