NYC Health + Hospitals, New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services Commissioner Jackie Bray, and community stakeholders celebrated the groundbreaking of a new flood protection system at NYC Health + Hospitals / Metropolitan in East Harlem.

The Metropolitan Hospital Flood Wall Resiliency Project was initiated by NYC Health + Hospitals and NYCEDC to address flooding vulnerabilities on the hospital campus. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funded the $120 million project, which includes the construction of a perimeter flood wall and an upgraded storm water pumping system. Both will help better protect the hospital and surrounding area from significant flooding caused by heavy rain and storm surge. The hospital will now be able to withstand a 500-year flood, according to FEMA. The flood wall varies in height from 8 feet to 12 feet and includes new entrance openings with resilient floodgates of up to 35 feet in width.

“The climate crisis is here, and we must ensure that New York City is ready for more frequent and more extreme weather events, especially at critical infrastructure sites, like our hospitals,” said New York City Mayor Eric Adams. “This flood resiliency project shows federal, state, and city government partnership at its best — getting stuff done to protect New Yorkers. This flood wall will ensure the health care heroes at NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan can continue fully serving their patients and helping them get better…

“America First does not mean America alone. It means strengthening and modernizing our alliances, which is why we support Finland and Sweden applying to join NATO to ensure the safety of their nations. This move by Finland and Sweden – two nations that have committed to paying 2% of their GDP towards the alliance – is a direct result of strategic errors by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“NATO is a collective defense organization, and the unacceptable invasion of Ukraine by Russia reveals exactly why other European countries are pursuing these measures.

“President Putin’s actions are not weakening the alliance but strengthening the alliance. Putin needs to recognize that further aggression in Ukraine will only damage Russia to a much greater extent.”

Lt. Gen (Ret.) Keith Kellogg

Street Renaming Petition To Honor Mario D’Agostino
The Bronx Daily | Bronx.com

Mario D’Agostino, who passed away June 14, 2020, was a true leader in his community in the Bronx and left his mark on the neighborhood and everyone, who had the pleasure of knowing him. 

Mario was an honorable man, who changed people’s lives with his beautiful mind, strong work ethic, positive outlook on life and investing in his favorite part of New York City, the Bronx.

Editorial

You should know that in one of his first public appearances, after having resigned as Governor for New York State, Andrew Cuomo will be visiting the South Bronx. His visit to the Bronx is to meet with Members of “The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, which I preside over.

As you know, last summer Governor Cuomo resigned, when he was accused and practically abandoned by all his friends, politicians, and community groups, whom he had helped in the past. These so-called friends, and groups that were all too happy to kiss his ring, joined the “cancel culture” environment, that plaques us all, without due process, they washed their hands with a dismissive attitude, sending the message “Crucify him, crucify him”.

Several courts and judges have dismissed the allegations of “sexual harassment” against Governor Cuomo. With this episode behind him, Governor Cuomo has begun to visit and make public appearances by visiting different faith-based organizations and community groups.

It is very important for you to know that Governor Cuomo’s first public visit was to “God’s Battalion of Prayer Temple” in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Sunday March 06, 2022. His next planned visit is to the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” in the South Bronx.

You should also know that in a recent poll, Governor Cuomo, without being a candidate nor having announced his political aspirations, has polled with just four (4) points behind Governor Kathy Hochul.

As you know, Governor Hochul was a friend and she was handpicked by Cuomo to be his Lieutenant Governor. However, she was among one of the first to throw him under the bus, in the midst of the allegations, launched against him.

I imagine that those four (4) points will evaporate very soon and Governor Hochul will have to consider asking Governor Cuomo for his support, if she wishes to be officially elected by the people to the governorship.

As President of the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, I am looking forward to hosting Governor Cuomo on Thursday, March 17, 2022. We welcome him to the South…
