A Taste of Brooklyn, New York

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT BROOKLYN?

  1. Brooklyn is the most populous of New York City's five boroughs, with nearly 2.6 million residents, and the second-largest in area. Since 1896, Brooklyn has had the same boundaries as Kings County, which is now the most populous county in New York State and the second-most densely populated county in the United States, after New York County (Manhattan).

  2. Brooklyn was an independent city until its consolidation with New York City in 1898, and continues to maintain a distinct culture, independent art scene, and unique architectural heritage. Many Brooklyn neighborhoods are ethnic enclaves where particular ethnic groups and cultures predominate.

  3. Brooklyn's job market is driven by three main factors: the performance of the national and city economy, population flows and the borough's position as a convenient back office for New York's businesses. Forty-four percent of Brooklyn's employed population, or 410,000 people, work in the borough; more than half of the borough's residents work outside its boundaries. As a result, economic conditions in Manhattan are important to the borough's jobseekers.

  4. Brooklyn contains dozens of distinct neighborhoods, representing many of the major ethnic groups found within the New York City area. The borough is home to a large African-American community. Bedford Stuyvesant is home to one of the most famous African-American communities in the city, along with Brownsville and East New York. "Bed-Stuy" is a hub for African-American culture, often referenced in hip hop and African-American arts. Brooklyn's African-American and Caribbean communities are spread throughout much of Brooklyn.

  5. Brooklyn has played a major role in various aspects of American culture including literature, cinema and theater. It has the world-renowned Brooklyn Academy of Music and the second largest public art collection in the United States, housed in the Brooklyn Museum. In the late 1980s Brooklyn achieved a new cultural prominence with the films of Spike Lee, whose She's Gotta Have It and Do The Right Thing were shot there.

  6. Brooklyn has a storied sports history. It has been home to many famous sports figures such as Vince Lombardi, Mike Tyson, Joe Torre, and Vitas Gerulaitis. Basketball legend Michael Jordan was born in Brooklyn but grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina.

  7. During this “Brooklyn era,” baseball’s rules evolved into the modern game: the first fastball, first changeup, first batting average, first triple play, first pro baseball player, first enclosed ballpark, first scorecard, first known African-American team, first black championship game, first road trip, first gambling scandal, and first eight pennant winners were all in or from Brooklyn.

  8. The median income for households in Brooklyn was $32,135, and the median income for a family was $36,188. Males had a median income of $34,317, which was higher than females, whose median income was $30,516.

Amida Care


New York, NY (June 15, 2017)—On June 14, not-for-profit New York community health plan Amida Care and Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation presented a community fitness class, a “Live Your Life” wellness event.

With the goal of inspiring fitness and healthy living in Brooklyn, this event featured a variety of exercise and fitness techniques designed to give Brooklyn residents a basis for healthy exercise. The event was supported in part by Brooklyn Council Member Robert E. Cornegy, Jr.

“Amida Care’s ‘Live Your Life’ program grew out of direct member feedback that health care needs to be about more than visiting the doctor and taking pills. These events are designed to meet the social, physical, and emotional needs of our members and build important life skills. We thank Council Member Cornegy for his support in bringing this interactive, healthy, and fun initiative to the Brooklyn community,” said Doug Wirth, President and CEO of Amida Care.

“We are continuing to address policy and systems that make a formidable impact on the health of New York City's residents. Amida Care's citywide events are poised to help even more New Yorkers remain healthy. I believe Amida Care's Live Your Life this week in the 36th Council District is a great way to bring the community together around important health prevention measures,” said Council Member Robert E. Cornegy, Jr.

Amida Care holds monthly Live Your Life wellness events throughout the five boroughs of New York City, where members and their guests learn about ways to get and stay physically, mentally, and spiritually healthy. In addition to dance and fitness classes, the events cover such topics as art therapy, healthy cooking, meditation, aromatherapy, and more.

Help us open a Brooklyn, NY Non-Kill Animal Rescue Center (Please inform all animal lovers you know)


We at www.xclusivity.org are primarily a music corporation but we are also big animal lovers as well! We receive emails everyday from hundreds of animal rescuers in Brooklyn, NY telling us we have to move quick and rescue animals before they are put to sleep. Our heart breaks every time we read this and many times we did rescue animals but obviously there is only so much we can do alone and that same fact applies to everyone. There is not enough room in peoples homes to take in hundreds or thousands of animals and even though we want to it is not realistic. Because of this fact, animal rescuers spend their time trying to find other people to take these poor helpless animals in and most of the time there is a time deadline, meaning these animals will be put to sleep in these kill shelters if someone does not rescue these animals soon. This has been an ongoing problem for decades and millions of animals have been put to sleep for no reason. They are happy and healthy animals and just need a place to call home.

We have the solution and we need your support. We need a Brooklyn, NY Non-Kill Animal Rescue Center. How we plan to fund this project is we are planning a concert this summer which will feature a great Billy Joel Tribute Band. We have not booked the date yet but we are considering renting out Keyspan Park the home of The Brooklyn Cyclones. We will book the date when we have enough sponsors lined up to make this project a success. The number of sponsors we need is 1,000. We are planning to raise $250,000 which will cover all of our expenses for the concert and leave us with a great start of capital to open our Brooklyn, NY Non-Kill Animal Rescue Center.

Below is the cost of sponsorship for this event and the benefits you will receive as a sponsor:

Sponsorship Package includes:
*2 Tickets to the Billy Joel Tribute Band Concert

*Advertisement of your business or family name as a Sponsor in 2,500 Program Booklets for our expected 2,500 guests.

Cost of Sponsorship: $250

Keep in mind we are at the beginning stages of this project and we are just networking to find sponsors, no money is due at this point. Xclusivity.org is not a Non-For-Profit corporation and before any money is exchanged Xclusivity.org is planning to open a division of it's company as a Non-For-Profit corporation to complete this project once all the sponsors are lined up. Also no date has been set at Keyspan Park for this event, we are only mentioning Keyspan Park as a venue we are planning to use in the near future once all of the sponsors are lined up.

If you have any questions or would like us to reserve your company or family name as a sponsor for this event, feel free to call us anytime at 347-942-6071 or email us at info@xclusivity.org to discuss this needed and important project further.
