The Second Avenue Subway: E 96th, 86th & 72nd Street Stations Resume On New Years Day Grand Opening
By Ryan Ngala

Digital Reporter, STN New York
[Upper East Side, New York] Finally The Wait Is Over, As The Highly Anticipated Second Avenue Subway Will Open On 3 New Stations, Many People Doubt That It Will Never Happen, But As Many People Except To One Day Come True, But In Reality I Will Believe It When I See It Come To Pass, As The Stations Will Resume To Be Opening At Noon. 
After Years Of Building In The Underground Railroad On The Upper East Side Of Second Avenue, Train Workers and Construction workers have worked their way around the clock, as they build the ultimate subway station that will one day run on the New York City Transit System in twenty seventeen of the month in January. 
The First Phase Of The Project Completes The Final Steps Of Building The East 96th Street, 86th Street And 72nd Street Stations with an all new Glass Design Featuring Not Only Escalators But Also Subway Elevators For Each Individual Subway Station, As The New York City Police And The State Of New York Officers Are Beefing And Tighten Up Station Entrance For The Opening Of The New Three Stations 72nd, 86th & 96th Street Lines. 
It’s the largest expansion in the system in 50 years, expanding more than thirty blocks and costing roughly $4.6 Billion Dollars, that had been rejected so many times over the years, It has first been proposed in 1920, then it has been delayed in the 1930’s, 1940’s & 1970’s that the skepticism are remained high long after the second ave subway project construction restarted In 2007. 
The MTA Announces The Introduction Of The New Second Avenue Subway, Starting With The Q Line Service Beginning At The 96th Street Subway Station as New Yorkers and tourists gets excited to be into the subway station to get a front row seat, On Monday, January 9th, 2017 late night service will begin from 10PM through 6AM, shortly going from between Coney Island – 57th Street – 7 Avenue uptown to downtown on second avenue, and for the early morning rush at 6AM – 10PM service from 96th Street – 2 Avenue. 
As I walk up my way to 63rd Street & 2nd Avenue I saw the glass design as it came about very much perfect and ready to go as the billboard calling the Q Line Service quote “Second Avenue Subway: Upper East Side to Coney Island A one-seat ride” end quote and showing it on the subway map as an example of where the Q line would travel to and from as it reach to it’s destination. 
Many businesses from second avenue would have there hands full with customers, as for many who get off from the second avenue subway station, from not only restaurants but also in supermarkets too as for many who will be posting it on Social Media as they follow the Second Avenue Subway Social Media Page On Twitter.com/2ndAvenueSubway, Using the hashtag #SecondAvenueSubway, #FirstRide & #MyRide, this will become the greatest second avenue subway station, not only for New York City but also in New York State.

My Father,
He Is Dead,
Make sure he is rest in peace in heaven.
 
 
For all the great things that he has done,
I never knew in my life,
That he’d be gone forever.
 
 
He was a hard worker,
He was always a leader,
How much my mother really misses him.
 
 
He was the greatest dad I ever had,
And now I’m really sad,
We have lost him.
 
 
He will always keep us in touch,
I’ll always love him,
Deep inside my heart.

My mother raised me,
To become a loving & caring son,
To take care of my lovely siblings,
And the rest of my day is done.

My mother raised us,
To do better in school,
Not to stare into space,
Acting like a fool.

My mother raised me,
To become a healthy teen,
She makes food for the children,
And asks us all to read.

My mother raised me,
To become a humble and nice man,
If they say something mean to me,
I can just keep my mouth shut instead.

My mother raised us,
To become successful leaders,
How did your mother raise you?

[New York] Let The Games Begin!!!, Today was a gorgeous and sunny day when the Harlem Children’s Zone hosted the Summer Games located at 216 Fort Washington Avenue and West 168th street, this event took place on Friday July the twenty sixth of twentieth thirteen.
 

 

Some HCZ staff and students arrived on a school bus, while others walked; all of them went upstairs to the third floor to be seated as the HCZ Summer Games were about to start at 10:00am and ending at 4:00pm on the dot. Many of the main events were shown on a large projector screen including the fifty-five meter dash, the shot put, the two-hundred meter dash, the 4×200 meter relay, and the long jump.

 

The 55 meter dash was for eleven – fifteen year olds who ran so fast at the New Balance Track and Field Center at The Armory; the crowd gave the runners a round of applause. The shot put contest was for the CSO site group and 19 year olds who Threw the heavy ball and had to spin themselves around in circles just to see how to throw it so far and so high. When The shot put athletes were finished it was on to the next event, which was the 200 meter dash for 13 – 15 year old students; and they were running so fast around the track which was splendid indeed. Next it was the long jump for the 11 – 14 and 16 – 18 year old students who ran and jumped as far as possible in the sand. The audience watched it all, and all the while many refreshments were served to each HCZ site, including Learn To Earn, Truce Media, Truce Fitness, Employment and Technology Center, College Success Office, A Cut Above and Promise Academy One.

 

After all that, the HCZ students and staff from each site group stood for the national anthem, then on to the next event which was the 55 meter dash for the fastest staff member, both men and women.Each runner had to race at his or her own pace to see who could reach the finish line, Each and every last runner had a turn to compete.


Finally comes the best events of the Games: the 11-12, 13-15, & 16-18 year olds competed in the 4×200 meter relay; four students from each site group ran in this event at his or her own pace, From what I saw, the students who won the 4×200 meter relay ran the fastest of all. Just to see who reached the finish line, the winners who earned the Bronze, Gold and Silver medal, were from A Cut Above, Truce Fitness and Promise Academy One.

[Riverbank State Park, New York] Figure Skating in Harlem (FSH) kicks off its 16th annual ice show at Riverbank State Park in Harlem on (Sat. March 23rd and Sun. March 24th at both 7 and 3pm); many people had waited in line with their tickets in their hands just to get in. It was a long line; as I got there the show was about to start. Things were running smoothly. Some ticket holders started to go upstairs to the upper balcony while some people wanted seats in the middle of the lower area; when everyone was settled the ice show began.

The host of the show was none other than Tamara Tunie of NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU.” She started things off by introducing the Harlem Ice Beginner 3 Synchronized Skating Team; they skated to three Whitney Houston songs, “My Love Is Your Love,”  “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” and “How will I know?.” The team danced and skated so swiftly that they wowed the crowd with a stunning performance; “La Conga Blicoti” by Josephine Baker. The event was an outstanding Sunday skating performance featuring FSH students, Kaylia Allen, Nya Davis, Kortney DeBride, Ava Grace Gardner, Isis Glover, Andrea Heredia, Zoe Littles-Ward, Narju Nawar, Eden Pichardo, Ashley Prentice and Jalynn Satterthwaite. Nina Simone’s “Feelin’ Good” was performed by FSH students Tanay Davis, Taharie Murga, Thalyia Thompson, and Zenzile Tonge; the quartet of performers skated with all their strength as they spun and twirled until the very end.

Other FSH students skated to the songs of many great women artists and songs including:

“Fantasy” By Mariah Carey

“I Got Rhythm” By Lena Horne

“New Attitude” By Patti LaBelle

“Unpretty” By TLC

“Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” By Selena

“Sweet Dreams” By Beyoncé

“No One” By Alicia Keys

“Respect” By Aretha Franklin

“Strong Enough” By Cher

“Colette Shows Him the Ropes / Infernal Galop” By Michael Giacchino & Jacques Offenbach

“Family Affair” By Mary J. Blige

“Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” By Lauryn Hill

“Step by Step” By Whitney Houston

“Brave” By Idina Menzel

“Palladio” By Escala and

“Midnight Train to Georgia” By Gladys Knight and The Pips.

Three FSH soloists then prepared to skate on the ice and strut their stuff; Sharendalle Murga was up first skating to Idina Menzel’s “Brave.” Executing her spins and going around in circles, skating so magnificently, her performance ended in even more memorable moves on the ice. Second was Jiordan Ali who danced to Leontyne Price’s “Summertime;”  her skating was actually quite amazing and  the crowd applauded for her so she continued to skate even harder; the more she skated, the better her skating became. Last but not least, there was the one and only Florence Ngala (my sister) who skated to Adele’s “Hometown Glory;” her performance was choreographed by Ali Blank. On hand to see Florence’s skating routine during FSH’s Saturday prorgram were Abel, Wendy, Auntie Doreen and Tina (Mom); her amazing performance was recorded on Auntie Doreen’s iPad by her sister Wendy. It was a marvelous performance as ever and the entire crowd gave Florence a standing ovation which was even louder than ever before. Because it was Florence’s last performance as an FSH student, her family and fans gave her an enthusiastic send off.  It had been 11 years since she started skating at the age of six.

When Florence’s solo performance was over, Sharon Cohen, FSH founder and director, stepped into the ice rink and said a couple of words before the start of the skating finale. She asked the crowd “Are you guys having a good time?” The crowd went wild as the audience yelled “Yeah!!!”

I was shouting and screaming even more than the audience did.

Sharon then said “It really takes a village to run a fantastic organization.”  She and Bernice had dreamt about an ice skating program in Harlem for years before FSH  became a reality.  Sharon then introduced the FSH staff members who made the performance possible by pushing the FSH students to be successful both on and off the ice.

Three FSH students who will be leaving the program–Florence, Sharendalle and Jiordan received flowers; along with Bria Culpepper and Kayla Stewart also received flowers because they will be going to college soon. At that point Florence cried heartfelt tears of joy. Then all five FSH students stepped into the ice rink for a final bow.

The finale Performance was performed by all the FSH students who were introduced by  Tamara Tunie, the FSH students skated to both Alicia Keys’ “Girl On Fire” and Beyoncé’s “Run The World.”

The Harlem Ice Open Juvenile Synchronized Skating Team (Jiordan Ali and Sharendalle Murga were up along with Kolby Couch, Tanay Davis, Eliyah Mckayle, Taharie Murga, Florence Ngala, Zjana Ray, Nikaila  Saunders, Kayla Stewart, Thaylia Thompson, Zenzile Tonge and Sandra Williams) skated to “Girl On Fire.” The two team captains skated so swiftly with spins and twirls to the audience’s delight; the crowd cheered with excitement. Next all of the FSH students skated to the right and left of the ice rink to Beyoncé’s “Run the world.”  When the entire group of skaters entered during the ice rink the crowd went wild, screaming from the top of their lungs.

The FSH students from the youngest to oldest were the stars of the event. As their performance came to an end, the crowd gave them a loud round of applause and a standing ovation for their outstanding skating performance at the heart of Riverbank State Park.

The sickening, rubber-necking front page story on the New York Post.

Imagine how this man’s family feels.

By Ryan Ngala

 

[Times Square, New York] Since the day after the incident on Monday evening, the suspect no one has been arrested. Police are investigating the tragedy and are asking the question, ‘Who would do something like this?’ But as the police officers are continuing to pursue this case determined to track down the subway murderer who pushed the victim on to the tracks.

Police last night were questioning one suspect thought to have pushed the 58-year-old Queens father to his death, officials said. The incident was broadcast over the news and throughout the media; it also appeared on the front page of the New York Post. A suspect was identified and taken into custody on Tuesday after investigators recovered security video that showed a man fitting the description of the suspect; he had been working with street vendors near Rockefeller Center, said NYPD spokesman Paul Browne.

When the accident occurred on Monday afternoon, witnesses told investigators they had seen the suspect talking to himself before he approached the victim, Ki-Suck Han at the Times Square station. The two got into an altercation, and the suspect pushed Han into the train’s path.

Was anyone brave enough to save Han before he died on the tracks? Unfortunately there were no heroes who came forward to save him in the 22 seconds before the train struck. The NY Post published a photo of the victim on its front page. Han was depicted with his head turned toward the train, his arms were reaching up, but he was unable to climb off the tracks in time.

Freelance photographer R. Umar Abbasi, who was waiting to catch a train, was interviewed on NBC’s “Today” show on Wednesday. He told reporters that he wasn’t trying to take a photo of  the victim, but that he was trying to alert the motorman of the approaching train by flashing his camera. “It took me a second to figure out what was happening … I saw the lights in the distance. My mind was to alert the train,” Abbasi said. “The people who were standing close to him … they could have moved and grabbed him and pulled him up. No one made an effort,” he added.

Soon after the incident, several other news media networks chimed in on the controversy. Many readers questioned why the photograph had been taken and published as the front cover of the New York Post newspaper.

“I’m sorry. Somebody’s on the tracks. That’s not going to help,” said Al Roker on NBC’s “Today” show as the photo was displayed.

Larry King reached out to followers on Twitter to ask this question: 

“Did the @nypost go too far?

CNN’s Soledad O’Brien tweeted: “I think it’s terribly disturbing — imagine if that were your father or brother.”

The NY Post declined to share the photo with the Associated Press for distribution. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Tuesday that he believed that “in this case, it appeared to be a psychiatric problem”, and he said of Han, “if I understand it, tried to break up a fight or something and paid for it with his life.”

As the case developed and the police tracked down the Times Square subway murderer, it was revealed that he was a homeless drifter. He was arrested and charged this morning for allegedly tossing the victim onto the tracks where he was fatally crushed by the Q train. The perpetrator is Naeem Davis; he is in his thirties, and he confessed yesterday that he did push Ki-Suk Han. He told police that he “stayed and watched” as the train hit Han, but he had showed no remorse for what he did, another source said.

[Bronx, NY] In a residential apartment building section of the Bronx, on a far-away, isolated, warehouse-lined street, located at 865 East 135th Street and Walnut Avenue, in a very quiet space just above the third floor, where the sound of the music was buzzing, signaling that something cool was taking place, there was a very special event going down at the True Sound Lounge last Saturday evening.

The exclusive event at True Sound Lounge was hosted by Getti Visions, Go Le Gare’s Studio 73, and True Sound Lounge. Many beautiful people were invited to a special fashion show event, many photographers were taking pictures of a big whiteboard which presented the logos of the different sponsoring companies: Kastle Designs and Treasure Chest, Getti Visions, Robibero Winery, DJ Madic, GoLe Gare’s Studio 73 and Juici Creations.

As the fashion show was about to start, many more people continued to come and they had to rush to take their seats. The hosts,George and Getti, said a few words before the show began; soon, as many as twelve models started to strut their stuff, rocking the DpiperTwins clothing line as they hit the runway looking so fabulous and stunning as ever. Danielle and Chantelle, the Dpiper twins were present and they did their “thang.”

When the fashion show ended, the many photographers at the event started to take pictures of the 12 models who had walked the runway; the models, including the Dpiper twins, struck provocative poses and smiled for the camera.

I thought the runway was pretty awesome with all the sparkling lights that change colors perpetually. Anyway I liked the show and the setting very much. Soon many ladies and gents started to dance and enjoy themselves. There were also singing performances and a DJ Madic cranking up the music. All in all this event was something very special that everybody could enjoy.
