This is the Community Arts project done by Mike Ferrigno, Alex Hajjar, Amanda Strano, and Joseph Valerio, we hope you enjoy! It is a quick documentary on the wonderful Christmas lights of Dyker Heights in Brooklyn and describes their history, impact, and art form.

It looks like the Kiwis know a good thing when they taste it.

In the above pre-Thanksgiving video, the Daily News pays a visit to neighborhood live poultry market La Pera Brothers, as workers prepare for turkey day shoppers. We had covered manager Carlo Formisano’s plan to begin carrying organic boids back in May.

The above video, posted on YouTube by repmichaelgrimm, shows Congressman Grimm spending the day with a Staten Island fire company. He had also recently spent the day as a UPS deliveryman.

The Brooklyn Politics points out that Grimm, a Republican, has received criticism from Democrats for what they are calling badly timed photo ops.

The above video, which was uploaded to Youtube by CongressmanNadler, shows Nadler on Fox News defending legislation that will cut private lending institutions out of the federal student loan process, as well as offer amnesty to students after a certain number of  20 years, rather than 25.

The law, which was to begin in 2014, will instead take effect next year, according to a press release from President Obama.

What’s your opinion on for-profit student loans?

How about tax-payer funded amnesty for debtors?

U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler represents New York’s 8th Congressional District, which includes Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Hell’s Kitchen, Chelsea, SoHo, Greenwich Village, TriBeCa, the Financial District and Battery Park City. In Brooklyn, the 8th District includes parts of Borough Park, Red Hook, Sunset Park, Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Gravesend, Dyker Heights, Bath Beach and Seagate.

The above video, which can be found on Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s YouTube channel, shows him introducing a bill to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act or DOMA, which was signed into law by President Clinton during the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” 90′s.

Nadler is joined by the bill’s sponsors, which include Reps. Barney Frank, Tammy Baldwin, Jared Polis, David Cicilline, and John Conyers. They would like to repeal DOMA, a 1996 law “that discriminates against lawfully married gay and lesbian couples.”

The above video, posted on Rep. Michael Grimm’s YouTube channel, includes his speech on the Veterans Dog Therapy Training Act.

The Staten Island Advance reported last week that Grimm’s legislation, which would help both disabled veterans as well as those suffering from post traumatic stress, passed the House of Representatives.

The bill would allow veterans suffering from PTSD to train the dogs, which will then be used by disabled veterans in order to help them with everyday tasks, such as shopping and crossing the street.

From silive:

“This type of program, that allows veterans to help veterans, could have a tremendous impact in New York,” said Grimm (R-Staten Island/Brooklyn). “Ideally, I’d like to see [it] established at the Brooklyn VA Hospital, which provides care for many of the veterans in my district.”

It looks like the Occupy Wall Street protesters won’t be getting kicked out after all.

The above video, posted on YouTube by karinmoveon, captures cheers as the crowd learns that Brookfield Properties, the company that maintains Zuccotti Park, called off the cleaning that would have prompted police to clear a section of the park.

Unfortunately, all the exuberance following the announcement led to some clashes between demonstrators and police.

Are you for OWS, against it, or maybe somewhere in between? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section.

After protesters brought in a cleaning crew yesterday to prevent an eviction by Mayor Bloomberg, Rep. Jerrold Nadler released the following to the press:

 

Nadler to Mayor Bloomberg: Protecting 1st Amendment Rights of Occupy Wall Street and Safeguarding Community Needs Are Not Mutually Exclusive

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), representative of Lower Manhattan and the Ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, responded to news that, on Friday, Mayor Bloomberg plans to evict Occupy Wall Street activists from their base at Zuccotti Park in Manhattan.

 He issued the following statement:

“I am very concerned by Mayor Bloomberg’s plan to remove Occupy Wall Street activists (OWS) from Zuccotti Park tomorrow morning. I believe that protecting the rights of OWS and the needs of the Lower Manhattan community are not mutually exclusive. This situation can and must be resolved in a manner that addresses the concerns of local businesses and residents without violating either the First Amendment or New York’s long tradition of respecting public protest. It would be unfortunate, precisely because it is unnecessary, if this matter were not resolved in an amicable manner. Continue Reading »

Do you consider the anti-corporate sentiment of the Occupy Wall Street protests, as well as growing discontent about the widening gap between rich and poor to be a form of class warfare?

In the above video, posted on YouTube by Rep. Jerrold Nadler spins the label back around at Congressional Republicans during an appearance on MSNBC, accusing them of “tax warfare” against the middle and working class.
