Editorial

You should know, that through the years, I have received a lot of media attention for standing firm on my Christian faith – especially for my opposition to gay marriage and abortion – but in spite of what you might have read in a recent news article, my record, especially during my years serving as a member of the NYS Senate proves that I have been one of New York’s most effective and proficient Democratic legislators, but that record has been routinely ignored.

You should know that during my years of service as NYS Senator, having served 15 years, from 2002 – 2017, through my efforts many pieces of legislation were passed and signed into law.  I have an outstanding record of having worked hard with my colleagues to get my bills out of their respective committees and on to the Senate Floor for a vote. The evidence of my bills, a total of sixteen, can be seen proudly decorating the walls of my Office as well as other bills which I have been instrumental as co-sponsor.

It is important for you to know that on August 06, 2014 my bill number S.6732-A was signed into law. It was sponsored in the NYS State Assembly by Assemblyman Marcos Crespo. This bill protects New Yorkers from immigration assistance fraud. This was one of many victories for the Diaz Team.

As you know that when your political party is in the minority, as the Democrats were then, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to get any legislation passed. However, in my fifteen years as a New York State Senator, being in the minority additionally with my conservative values, Christian faith and traditional philosophies, I managed to introduce many pieces of legislations. I repeat, sixteen of my bills were signed into law, making me one of the most, if not THE most, effective Democratic Senator having served in the New York State Senate.

In 2005, I introduced bill number S.2234-A, which was signed into law and became Chapter 526. This law increases state penalties for dog attacks…

With New York’s indoor dining plans officially postponed indefinitely, it looks like diners will have to dine out this summer – or at least for the foreseeable future. With many restauranteurs in Brooklyn struggling to stay afloat amid COVID-19, many of them are having to adapt their services of take-out or outdoor dining to attract new clients. While there have been measures implemented to reduce restaurant delivery fees, many restauranteurs are looking forward to welcoming dinners again. With American anxiety about dining out significantly higher amid restaurants reopening, many are seeking an uncomplicated guide to the undiscovered foodie scene in Brooklyn – outdoor dining and pickups included.

Estuary, Brooklyn Heights

Opened in 2019, the waterfront restaurant boasts Michelin star chef, Danny Brown heading up the kitchen. Estuary currently sits 48 people outdoors, making it appropriate for Phase 2 of the federal reopening plan. More importantly, the eatery offers a mainly seafood angled menu, with fresh Branzino and lobster rolls on the menu. So whether you are after a quick bite to eat or a three course outdoor dining experience with a view of the Manhatten skyline, Estuary is at the top of the list. The restaurant’s website also indicates that it has remained open for takeout and delivery throughout the pandemic.

Look By Plant Love House, Prospect Heights

The international food scene is undoubtedly alive, well and thriving in Brooklyn. One of the more recent success stories has been Look By Plant Love House, a Thai noodle spot in Prospect Heights. Known for its popular Guay Tiao Num To (Thai boat noodle soup) and Papaya salad, it offers backyard eating along with takeout options. The restaurant’s unique and uncommon menu items have even made it on…
