Join photographer Mark Steinmetz as he discusses his new book Carnival, published by Stanley/Barker publishing house.
From 1982-2001 the American photographer Mark Steinmetz traveled to country fairs, urban street fairs, and small circuses across the United States, to make photographs of the families, teens and carnies that contain all the warmth and frenetic energy of a day at the carnival.
“People from all walks of life go to the fair seeking something to transport them from the everyday. Amid the excitement and sounds of the rides and games, I could slip by largely unnoticed and capture gestures and faces.” says Mark Steinmetz.
This free event will take place on Monday, December 02, 2019, at 07:00 p.m.
Mark Steinmetz is an Athens, Georgia-based photographer whose work captures black-and-white images of Southern Americana as seen in urban, rural and suburban landscapes.

You should know that this Thursday, October 24th, 2019 at 05:00 p.m., in the New York City Council Chamber, I will be celebrating Taiwanese Heritage Day with more than 200 leaders and members of New York’s Taiwanese community and the community at large.
It is important for you to know that this is not the first time I am hosting an event to celebrate the rich culture and diversity of one of New York’s immigrant communities.
When I was in the New York State Senate, the first thing I did was to organize and sponsor the very first Dominican Heritage Day, Garifuna Heritage Day, Bangladeshi Heritage Day, and Taiwanese Heritage Day in the New York State Senate.
My dear reader, you should know that no other Senator had taken this initiative before I arrived in the Senate Chamber to welcome immigrant communities such as New York’s Dominican, Garifuna, Bangladeshi and Taiwanese communities to address the New York State Senate in their own languages, and to celebrate their cultures.
You should also know that I held these very special events annually.
Ladies and gentlemen, I am truly honored and blessed to have been able to open the Senate chamber doors to welcome these immigrant communities into the halls of government.
As I did last year in the New York City Council Chambers, my fellow Council Members and I look forward to welcoming members of New York’s Taiwanese community again this coming Thursday. The delegation will include Ambassador Lily L. W. Hsu from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York and Mr. Justin Yu, Chair of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of New York to celebrate Taiwan’s culture with me at City Hall.
I am Councilmember Rev. Rubén Díaz, Sr. and this is what you should know.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. has issued a new report outlining a set of recommendations aimed at reforming the New York State Lottery to minimize its adverse effects on low-income communities.
The report, titled “Re-Orienting the Lottery: A Better Lotto for the Poor,” provides four recommendations that aim to prevent the lottery from further disadvantaging the poor and to instead help these communities see the most benefit from the state’s lottery system.
“The lottery has grown exponentially since its establishment and the state regulations overseeing that sector must be adapted to how it exists today. We can’t turn a blind eye to state lotteries targeting low-income and minority communities, and the systems should be changed to help limit the harm that vulnerable people experience because of them,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr.
The full report can be read here.
Recommendations discussed in the report include changing the allocation of lottery funds to further support students living in or near poverty, banning check cashers from selling lottery games, requiring the state to collect information about check cashers’ sales of lottery games and educating the public about the benefits of engaging with the traditional banking system.
Nationally, lower income individuals are more likely to play the lottery than higher income individuals, with some statistics finding that 28 percent of individuals earning under $30,000 per year play…

“I am pleased to learn that the New York Yankees, Nike and Major League Baseball were receptive to public pressure to do the right thing, and have heeded the concerns of our business community in the area surrounding Yankee Stadium. The news that these three entities have reversed their policy that would have prevented these longtime mom-and-pop stores from selling official Yankee merchandise is a welcome one.
“As one of the richest sports franchises in the world, it was incumbent on the Yankees to do what was right and protect this small business community that almost exclusively caters to their fan base. Inaction on this issue would have certainly reaped huge profits for the Yankees, Nike and Major League Baseball. However, it would have most definitely crippled our local economy that the New York Yankees promised to enhance, as part of the deal that built their new stadium with significant taxpayer funds.
“I want to thank Cary Goodman, the Executive Director at the 161 Street BID, for bringing this to our attention, as well as the New York Yankees for doing their due diligence and addressing this alarming issue that would have had a huge negative impact on The Bronx. I would also like to thank City Council Member Vanessa Gibson for her efforts on behalf of local businesses.
