The New York City Subway Terror Explosion:

The Ones Who Are Effected

By Ryan Ngala

Midtown, Manhattan (WSTN) – The transit commuters were having a hectic day during a subway explosion that injured many people at Times Square between 7th and 8th Avenues in connection with the transit hub connected to the Port Authority Bus Terminal as trains are still bypassing that is still in effect for the subway lines of (A) (C) (E) (1) (2) (3) and (7), calling this as a terror attack in New York City history.

This has been the second time and several many months, New York City the scene of a terror attack, but this time the target commuters in the nation’s busiest subway system, but New Yorkers nowadays are seem to be used to it, that bomb went off in the subway walkway in 8th Avenue’s Port Authority Bus Terminal as it was strapped to a terror suspect.

Many people suffered minor injuries bringing it to a total of five, while the man is still in police custody for planning a pipe bomb underneath the underground subway transit system as it detonated at about 7:20 a.m. in the passageway Monday morning between subway lines that runs a full city block under 42nd Street between seventh and eighth avenues.

The suspect who planned the attack was twenty seventh year old Ahkayed Ullah

who attached himself with the bomb and has suffered minor injuries and was later taken into the hospital, a former livery driver from Bangladesh who lives in Brooklyn, is in critical condition at Bellevue Hospital tonight, many people where hurt in this blast, as chaos erupted underground subway service is restored through Times Square and Port Authority now backup and running as the passageway is still an active crime scene and remains closed.

From the suspect, to the investigation to your commute route,

what do we know as confirmed sources tells STN New York and STN News that he was a student, and we don’t know what kind of a livery cab driver he was either, as he had that job but he isn’t the type that will make a pipe bomb maker, the pipe bomb that he confessed to the police today as he was building, carrying, and detonating here at the Port Authority causes no life threatening injuries but police said it was not for a lack of crime.

Anti Terror police scrambled to the Port Authority Bus Terminal this morning a muscular show of force and deathness as K-9 units sweep nearby buildings just to make sure that the threat was over, after a man detonated a pipe bomb underground,

“I just heard a big sound like there was smoke coming from the station, I came out of there” – Said Christina Bathea as a eyewitness to the scene,

James Ramirez eyewitness the scene as it hear what happened he said,

“The door was open up as people planned to start rushing out the police was all behind them as they say ‘Everybody out of the building, Everybody out of the building’ so I just got to the other side of the building and got out away from the scene on 8th Ave as fast as I could got away from the crowded people as fast as I could, I didn’t know what else was going to happen”.

According to the Port Authority CCTV footage, Police said 27 year old Ahkayed Ullah was walking the tunnel that connects 7th avenue and 8th avenue alongside 42nd street when he detonated a homemade bomb that he built,

“This male was wearing a improvised low tech explosive device, that was attached to his body, he intentionally detonated that device“ – said NYC Police Commissioner James O’ Neill,

“The device is based on a pipe bomb, it was a fixture with a combination of velcro and zip ties“ said NYPD Deputy Commissioner John Miller,

But the bomb it self didn’t start off very well as it seriously injured the man who police said built it, carried it and detonated it to 27 year old Ahkayed Ullah, the other four now total up to five others sustained minor injuries, but luckily no one was killed, but sources said he told police he was a supporter of ISIS and was radicalized watching videos produced by the group online.

“We are the statue of liberty, in our harbor and that makes us an international target“ – said Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo,

“We have prevented a significant number of plots, a significant number of attacks, but this is a fact of life for whether if you are in New York or London or Paris, the question is Will it happened here? And the answer is and will be it can happened anywhere” – John Miller added.

The police said Ullah is the ultimate lone wolf, They said he talked about his plans with nobody at all, he went online, first watch videos and then follow instructions on how to make a pipe bomb unfortunately for commuters here today he wasn’t very good at it.

The mayor also made a statement in the Subway Station Terror Attack

stating “The terrorists will not win. We are going to keep being New Yorkers”.


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.
