A Taste of New York, New York

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT NEW YORK?
  1. New York is the most populous city in the United States, and the center of the New York metropolitan area, which is one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world. The city's 2009 estimated population approached 8.4 million.

  2. Many districts and landmarks in the city have become well known to outsiders. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Times Square, iconified as "The Crossroads of the World", is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theater district, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry.

  3. New York's nonwhite population was 36,620 in 1890. In the 1920s, New York City was a prime destination for African Americans during the Great Migration from the American South. By 1916, New York City was home to the largest urban African diaspora in North America. The Harlem Renaissance flourished during the era of Prohibition, coincident with a larger economic boom that saw the skyline develop with the construction of competing skyscrapers. Today New York has the largest African American community of any city in the country.

  4. New York City is composed of five boroughs. (Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island and the Bronx) Queens County: Pop. 2,306,712 is geographically the largest borough and the most ethnically diverse county in the United States, and may overtake Brooklyn as the city's most populous borough due to its growth. Historically a collection of small towns and villages founded by the Dutch, today the borough is predominantly residential and middle class. Queens County is the only large county in the United States where the median income among African Americans, approximately $52,000 a year, is higher than that of White Americans.

  5. Numerous major American cultural movements began in the city, such as the Harlem Renaissance, which established the African-American literary canon in the United States. The city was a center of jazz in the 1940s, abstract expressionism in the 1950s and the birthplace of hip hop in the 1970s. The city prominently excels in its spheres of art, cuisine, dance, music, opera, theater, independent film, fashion, museums, and literature.

  6. The city also has a major ethnic press, with 270 newspapers and magazines published in more than 40 languages. El Diario La Prensa is New York's largest Spanish-language daily and the oldest in the nation. The New York Amsterdam News, published in Harlem, is a prominent African American newspaper. The Village Voice is the largest alternative newspaper.

  7. Organized crime has long been associated with New York City, beginning with the Forty Thieves and the Roach Guards in the Five Points in the 1820s. The 20th century saw a rise in the Mafia dominated by the Five Families and they still are the largest and most powerful criminal organization in the city. Gangs including the Black Spades also grew in the late 20th century. As early as 1850, New York City recorded more than 200 gang wars fought largely by youth gangs. The most prominent gangs in New York City today are the Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings, and MS-13.

  8. The New York Public Library, which has the largest collection of any public library system in the country, serves Manhattan, The Bronx, and Staten Island. Queens is served by the Queens Borough Public Library, which is the nation's second largest public library system, and Brooklyn Public Library serves Brooklyn. The New York Public Library has several research libraries, including the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.

  9. The area averages 234 days with at least some sunshine annually, and averages 58% of possible sunshine annually. Winters are cold and damp, and prevailing wind patterns that blow offshore minimize the moderating effects of the Atlantic Ocean. The average temperature in January, the area's coldest month, is 32.1 °F. However temperatures in winter could for a few days be as low as 10 °F and as high as 50 °F . Spring and autumn are unpredictable, and can range from chilly to warm, although they are usually pleasantly mild with low humidity. Summers are typically hot and humid with a July average of 76.5 °F.

A Tribute To My Mentors, A Life Well Spent Is A Life Well Lived!

 Phil Andrews

Mentors come from a variety of sectors in society. We are only as great as the impact we have on others, and the impact they have upon our lives. Our lives are always impacted by these two sides of these coins! A life well spent can not only be looked at by how we look at ourselves, but it must encompass how others look upon our lives.

During my early years my father Frank Andrews told me if you live life with a closed fist, nothing can come into our lives, as the lesson he was trying to relay was to be successful you have to give in order to receive in life.

My Aunt Frances Virginia Young taught me that living a life which embraced the principles of honesty, integrity, commitment, and compassion a person could make a difference not only in my life, but in the lives of others.

James D. Rice * deceased (Former President of 100 Black Men of Long Island, Inc.) stated in an article “Wherever our interest are at stake we must be at the table”. This statement implies we must be awake, present, and aware in all segments of society to be alerted to threats where are interest are at stake on a daily basis in life.

Ron Busby, Sr. CEO & President of the US Black Chambers, Inc. is setting an extraordinary example for local chapters nationwide to emulate the five pillars which were developed to foster chamber development and business growth in the African American community. The five pillars of the USBC are Advocacy, Access to Capital, Contracting, Entrepreneur Training, and Chamber Development.

Ed Monroe* deceased Tuskegee Airman whispered in my ear that “We all have a little Tuskegee in Us” and always was a patient leader who was never condescending, but ever so gently nudging me to be great!

Col. Claude Dixon* deceased always stated “I never found a man that I could not like” and made a conversation around argyle socks.

Silas Jenkins* Tuskegee Airman out of Lansing, Michigan took me to the Interfaith Nutrition Network known as the INN and said I needed to be involved in helping the less fortunate in our community, and as of today I am on my second term as a Board Member at the Inn.

Retired Brigadier George A. Jones* deceased often quoted “Heavy is the Head the wears the crown” as leadership is a tremendous responsibility for those that partake in its splendor must proceed with extreme prudence, guidance, and wisdom. He also stated “As I am, you also will be, come on and follow me.” It beholds anyone in a leadership position to respect others that have come before them to set an example of leadership for those that follow their lead if they are to be worthy of following.

At every stage of our lives a mentor can help us to navigate challenges to help us get to the next level in life. Mentoring is the gift that keeps giving! Never forget the bridge that crossed you over!

“Our natural gifts and callings will only take us so far in life, but we we learn to align our callings with others who possess the necessary skills to help advance our life our life in the right direction.” Phil Andrews, President Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc.

Make your life a masterpiece! “Make your life a masterpiece; imagine no limitations on what you can be, have or do.”

Small Business Owners, Professionals, Entrepreneurs, Leaders, and Women Business Owners looking to Unlock their dreams in 2017 are recommended to attend the 2017 Unlock Your Dreams Conference. Inquire online today by clicking on link here: 2017 Unlock Your Dreams Conference.

Phil Andrews has been featured in Black Enterprise as a BE Modern Man as Mr. Economic Empowerment! He has also appeared on WABC Here and Now.

Phil Andrews is the President of theLong Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. and Past President of the 100 Black Men of Long Island. Mr. Andrews is also the President of the Black Public Relations Society-New York an affiliate chapter of the National Black Public Relations Society.

“I was born & raised in the heart of Harlem, on 126th street between Lenox and 7th Ave where my family has lived for nearly 100 years in our Brownstone.” states Mama’s Foundation’s Founder, VyHigginsen. “My mother was a great cook and cooked for everyone that lived in our Brownstone. Our tenants were from all works of life: From the deep South to the exotic Caribbean. Everybody loved the variety and taste of her recipes! We would sometimes prepare the meals together, flavoring the dishes with spices and sauces that added zest and zip to meat, to salad, to vegetables, and dips. The foods would "Sing" with flavor, unique smells, and tastes, the flavor of Harlem. A flavor my partners and I agree must be tasted and experienced around the world and thus become ‘Mama’s One Sauce’ for all foods.”

NY City Council Funds Amida Care’s Consumer Workforce Initiative

- Funding for New Program Helps Create Jobs for People with HIV in Peer Health Outreach -

New York, NY (October 6, 2016) – The New York City Council has allocated $200,000 under the End the Epidemic budget to fund Amida Care’s Consumer Workforce Initiative program. Amida Care, New York’s largest Medicaid special needs health plan (SNP) for people with chronic conditions such as HIV/AIDS, is launching the new initiative to create living-wage jobs for graduates of peer workforce training programs.

HIV peer workforce education trains people living with HIV to use their life experience for jobs in health navigation and outreach. The Consumer Workforce Initiative will create employment opportunities for people living with HIV, train them to reach others who are at risk of becoming infected, connect newly diagnosed people to care, and help more people become virally suppressed.

“A peer workforce offers a unique opportunity to connect with those who need it most, like many Amida Care members I work with every day, particularly those who are homeless, young men of color having sex with men (MSM), and transgender women,” said Stephane Howze, Vice President and Ombudsperson of Amida Care. “Amida Care’s Consumer Workforce Initiative creates an essential pathway to living-wage jobs and helps the most vulnerable New Yorkers receive equitable health care and treatment.”

“Programs that train people living with HIV for health care jobs get us closer to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic. But it’s not enough to teach workers skills, they need real job opportunities,” said Doug Wirth, President and CEO of Amida Care. “Amida Care thanks the City Council for allocating the funds to help make the Consumer Workforce Initiative a reality. It will make a difference in the lives of thousands of New Yorkers and create a healthier city for us all.”

Amida Care especially thanks Council Members who have championed this program, including New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito; Finance Committee Chair Julissa Ferreras-Copeland; and members of the LGBT Caucus: Corey Johnson, who also serves as Chair of the Health Committee, Daniel Dromm, Ritchie Torres, James Van Bramer, Rosie Mendez, James Vacca, and Carlos Menchaca.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Blueprint to End the AIDS Epidemic in New York State by 2020 singles out employment as a critical factor to maintaining health and provides extensive recommendations on how job creation can help minimize new HIV infections. By creating living-wage jobs, programs like this can have a tremendous positive effect on health and ultimately help to prevent new HIV infections.

The new funding will give licensed primary care providers money to cover 50 percent of first-year salary costs for hiring graduates of peer workforce education training programs by organizations such as Housing Works, ASCNYC, and CAI (Cicatelli Associates). The providers include Acacia Network, Housing Works, Harlem United, Brightpoint Health, SUNY Downstate, VIP Services, and Morris Heights Community Health Center, and there are two additional grant opportunities for licensed primary care providers. The funds would also provide support to ensure that providers are able to fully integrate peers into the workforce as well as to collect and analyze data on the impact of peer services on the health system.

Amida Care has experienced success in piloting programs with City Council funding, such as the Mobile Engagement Teams outreach program, which was later successfully integrated into Amida Care’s health plan. The Mobile Engagement Teams initiative re-engaged nearly 1,000 HIV-positive individuals who were at risk of dropping out of care or failed to refill lifesaving medications, many of whom were not virally suppressed nor in good health.

Combating Teen Homelessness In NYC With Technology Top IT Experts Team Up to Educate Teens in Foster Care

Combating Teen Homelessness In NYC


May 31, 2016, New York, NY - The statistics are alarming. Eighty percent of homeless people in NYC were formerly in the foster care system. When a foster-care youth reaches the age of 18 and has not been adopted, they "age out" of the system and are essentially abandoned and completely unprepared to be on their own. Almost universally, they have minimal education, very high dropout rates, absolutely no parental or adult guidance, no life skills, no qualifications, and no living arrangements.

That's why the Techie Youth Foundation's Founder and President - Eric David Benari, is on a mission. He's teamed up with other experts in the field to provide free IT education to any youth of employable age in the foster-care system to help combat homelessness.

Combating Teen Homelessness In NYC


" It is never the kids' fault they are in the foster-care system. Most of them enter the system due to severe parental abuse or extreme neglect. Kids who don't enter the Techie Youth program and age-out of care are likely to become incarcerated within 18-24 months. Many will become homeless, and nearly half of all females will become pregnant within one year. Any of the students who participate in the program could within a very short time be earning much more than what is required to live adequately,” says Benari.

After five months of classes, the Techie Youth Foundation is proud to announce they recently celebrated their first graduating class at the Microsoft Store on 5th Avenue.

Amida Care and ASCNYC Members Celebrate Graduation From Workforce Initiative Network Program in Peer Education and Health Outreach

Amida Care


New York, NY (March 30, 2016) – Members of the latest class of Amida Care’s Workforce Initiative Network and the AIDS Service Center of New York City’s Peer Training Institute’s collaborative program gathered at the AIDS Service Center of New York City in midtown on March 21 to celebrate their graduation from the program. Amida Care—New York’s largest special needs health plan (SNP) for people with chronic conditions such as HIV/AIDS—launched the Workforce Initiative Network (WIN) program in collaboration with Housing Works and the AIDS Service Center of New York City to empower people living with HIV/AIDS to position themselves as successful job candidates, and ultimately take ownership of their health as well as to inspire others to make healthy choices. Fifteen graduates, including nine Amida Care members, completed the latest WIN training program.

“Being perinatally diagnosed as HIV-positive, adopted, and transgender, I could not find acceptance around me,” said Monique Mackey, a graduate of the WIN program and an Amida Care member. “Today I can say that I am a better person because of this program, and I can pursue my life’s mission to help others until they’re able to help themselves.”

http://www.amidacareny.org/

The six-week class, which is offered four times a year, is designed to help Amida Care members develop marketable skills that they can use to get a job. Members of the WIN program are trained to use their life experience for jobs in health navigation and outreach. These trained peer educators deliver community education and health coaching to hundreds of New Yorkers every year, helping those who are HIV-positive engage in treatment, those who have not been tested and do not yet know their status get tested for HIV, or those who may be at greater risk of becoming infected learn about prevention tools like pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).

Amida Care


“I’m fiercely proud of and often awed by our graduates,” said Sharen Duke, Executive Director of the AIDS Service Center of New York City. “By working with Amida Care to develop knowledge and create a health force through programs like this, we will end the AIDS epidemic in New York State.”

“I’m beyond proud of our graduates,” said Halli Olsen, Manager of Outreach Programs at Amida Care. “Through our program with the AIDS Center of New York City, every graduate has expressed above all how much they’ve grown personally, and that is beautiful.”

Employment is one of the most important social determinants of health, because without a job—and the financial security and health insurance that comes with it—access and attention to health care is severely limited. Governor Cuomo’s Blueprint to End the AIDS Epidemic in New York State by 2020 singles out employment as a critical factor to maintaining health and provides extensive recommendations on how job creation can help minimize new HIV infections. By fostering openness and encouraging dialogue around HIV prevention and treatment while creating living-wage jobs, programs like this could have a tremendous positive effect on health and ultimately help to prevent new HIV infections.

  3. America's Holistic Doctor -  Category: Holistic -  The U.S. ranks dead last in preventable deaths among the 19 leading industrialized nations! We're clearly off target in our approach to healthcare. Over 70 million Americans live with chronic pain back pain and headaches top the list. Back pain is the leading cause of adult disability in America, costing more than cancer and heart disease combined. In 2008, the New York Times declared: Despite spending $86 billion in 2005 on spine treatments, impaired function is increasing and we're losing the battle against back pain. The biggest surge in spending has been for narcotic pain relievers. Newsweek stated that prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death, killing twice as many Americans as AIDS or suicide, and more than accidents or diabetes. This doesn?t even include outpatient care, malpractice, improper use of drugs or over-the-counter medications. My Strategy: Resolve your health conditions and other life problems from a holistic mindset and approach. Holistic means caring for the person as a whole (whole mind, whole body and whole spirit) instead of just as an accumulation of symptoms. I've dedicated my life to bringing holistic care to my patients and a holistic message to the world in order to solve pain and health issues and contribute to the solution of larger global concerns.   - 51 East 26th Street, Ste 412 New York, New York (559) 490-9550  - (visit website)
