Mayor Bill de Blasio today released the following statement on the return of indoor swimming pools:

“As New York City continues its gradual reopening and economic recovery, we are proud to announce we are ready to reopen indoor pools. Swimming pools are a community anchor, an exercise center, and an oasis in their neighborhoods—both literally and figuratively. New Yorkers have worked hard to fight back COVID-19. As transmission rates remain low, we’re proud to offer more ways to slowly return to business as usual.”

Indoor pools will be allowed to reopen on September 30, 2020, subject to strict occupancy limits at 33 percent of capacity. Standard Department of Health and Mental Hygiene inspections will continue to promote compliance with all New York State regulations. New Yorkers who see crowding or other unsafe conditions in indoor swimming pools are urged to report to 311.

Editorial

You should know that “Everything Has Its End” is a (Salsa) tune, made famous and sung by the late, great, Puerto Rican salsa singer Héctor Juan Pérez Martínez, better known as Héctor Lavoe. This song hints at the fact that all things, good or bad, do not last forever. Everything has its end!

My beloved reader, I have taken this famous tune, not only because its fantastic lyrics, but because it is true to life, that everything has its finality.  So, I chose its theme to inform you of my official decision.  

After an in-depth analysis of my life as a public servant for many years, I perused through those years and my trajectory of accomplishments on behalf of serving my community and they are as follows:

1. When the Bronx was burning and everything was in ruins, abandoned, when hopelessness seemed to be the norm, and the Bronx was compared to post WW2 Germany, I remained and decided to make a difference. Here is a list of some of those projects that helped in the revitalization of the Bronx.

a) The Rev. Ruben Diaz Plaza Housing Complex located at the corner of 163rd Street and James Polite.

b) Rev. Ruben Diaz Apartments located on Westchester Avenue, between Intervale Ave. and Kelly street.

c) The first transportation program for the frail elderly and people with disabilities: The South Bronx Senior Transportation Network, located at 910 E. 172nd Street.

d) Three (3) Centers serving various vital programs for the elderly: Casa Boricua, located at 172nd Street, corner of Southern Boulevard, The Millbrook and Betances Senior Citizen Centers, both located on St. Ann’s Avenue.

e) The creation of the Home Attendant program, The Christian Community In Action, Inc. This program provided 1,300 jobs. It employed a large immigrant population from the Dominican and Honduran communities. This was at a time, when they were not well received in New York.  This program served more than 1,400 disabled and frail elderly people. This program also employed 28 people in administrative positions.

f) The Christian Community Ambulette Transportation Program. Located at 910 E. 172nd Street, Bronx. This program served the sick and disabled transporting them to…

Standing alongside fellow Brooklynite Jerry Seinfeld, U.S. Senator Charles Schumer pushed a plan, today, to save the many stages of New York. Schumer explained how the stages of New York—from comedy, to music & more—are in real peril amid COVID-19.

These stages have no revenue right now and their live venues are in trouble. Schumer said New York City CANNOT lose live venues, because that is what makes New York “New York”. Schumer pushed to provide federal relief for New York’s live events via the Save Our Stages Act. Schumer explained that the legislation would create a $10 billion Small Business Administration program (SBA) to provide grants of up to $12 million to eligible live venue operators, producers, promoters, or talent representatives to help cover six months of operating expenses and offset the economic impact of COVID-19. Schumer also said New York would see the lion’s share of this federal pot of funds given it is such a central part of the economy, and so he will fight to get it done.

“They say “All the world’s a stage,” but New York City’s are the spotlight, and we have to save them,” said U.S. Senator Charles Schumer. “Independent venues, like Gotham Comedy Club, performance pubs, concert halls and more are the beating heart of New York City’s cultural life and a driving force of the larger New York economy. These local businesses were among the first to shut down at the start of the pandemic, are struggling to stay afloat, and will be among the last to reopen.”

Schumer explained, 90% of independent venues report that they will have to close permanently without federal funding, according to a survey of National Independent Venue Association members. Schumer said that the bipartisan Save Our Stages Act is crucial to saving independent venues, like concert halls, theaters, and other places of entertainment, including Gotham Comedy Club and other clubs across the city—from jazz, to performance pubs and more.

“That’s why it’s so important to provide dedicated…
