3 Explosion rocks East Harlem Two buildings collapse, killing 8 and injuring 58 Story by Erik Cuello large gas explosion destroyed A two East Harlem apartment buildings early Wed., Mar. 12 th, killing eight and injuring nearly 60 others. Among those killed were Carmen Tanco, 67; Griselda Camacho, 44; George Amadeo, 44; Andreas Panagopoulos, 43; Mayumi Nakamura, 34; Alexis (Jordy) Salas, 22; Rosaura Barrios Vásquez, 44; and her daughter Rosaura Hernández, 21. The five-alarm fire occurred at 1644 and 1646 Park Avenue at 9:31 a.m. The five-story buildings held six and nine residential units, respectively. At the ground level of 1644 Park Avenue stood Spanish Christian Church Inc., a small, 60-member Evangelical church that has existed for nearly 80 years. Absolute Pianos was on the ground floor at 1646 Park Avenue. Elizabeth Matthews, a spokesperson for Con Edison, said that a resident of a nearby building reported a gas leak at 9:13 a.m. At 9:15 a.m., Con Edison sent a crew to investigate the report, arriving at 9:41 a.m., just after the explosion. Firefighters were on the scene at 9:33 a.m., and by early afternoon, there were over 250 firefighters at the site. Reports on Tue., Mar. 18 th from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) state that there was a leak in the 8-inch cast iron gas main adjacent to 1646 Park Avenue. The leak, found in the 125-year-old pipe near the site of the explosion, failed a pressure test. The NTSB declined to confirm at press time that the leak was the definite cause of the explosion. Fire Department Commissioner Sal Cassano said that definitive information regarding the source of the blast would take some time. Right now, they can t get anywhere near where the source of ignition was, he stated. Once we get through the debris and rubble we will get down to that basement and see where we think it was ignited. Over 250 firefighters responded to the site. Photo: E. Pagan Photo: QPHOTONYC The explosion leveled two city buildings. Photo: R. Kilmer First responders. Photo: QPHOTONYC Cassano added that first responders narrowly avoided being caught by the explosion. If we were here five minutes early, he said, we may have had some fatalities among firefighters. This past Sun., Mar. 16 th, a memorial service was held at the Bethel Gospel Assembly on East 120 th Street. Members of this congregation are one with those in the community who have been Mayor Bill de Blasio at the scene. Photo: QPHOTONYC suffering, said Mayor Bill de Blasio, who attended with First Lady Chirlane McCray. You can feel the support here. He commended the church for opening its doors shortly after the blast. The Mayor acknowledged the first responders, including firefighters, police, and emergency medical technicians. He also cited the civilians who rushed to the aid of their neighbors directly after the blast. Oscar Hernández, 15, was pulled out of the rubble by passersby who worked with police just before the buildings went up in flames. Hernandez remains in critical but stable condition at a nearby hospital. His mother and older sister died in the collapse. It made us proud and humble thinking about those men and women who felt the explosion, who ran into the fire, ran into the danger because they knew they night be able to save one more life, said the mayor. They got there without hesitation in the middle of the crisis and pulled Oscar out alive. The timing of his rescuers, who did not hesitate, said Mayor de Blasio, was the difference between life and death. They did not walk, they ran, he said.

5 Story, photos and video by Sherry Mazzocchi Ready. Set. Code. After 36 nearly non-stop hours of coding, developer Hannah Oppenheimer is one step closer to making a long-held dream come true. Oppenheimer and her team won the top prize this past weekend in New York-Presbyterian s first ever hackathon. The top prizes went to apps that gave patients more social interaction and information. Aurelia Boyer, the hospital s Chief Information Officer, said the hackathon s purpose was twofold. The hospital is starting to give patients Windows-based tablets. We re looking for new, innovative ideas on how to engage with our patients, she said. The second reason is that we want to open up to young developers the idea of working in health care. Boyer and a team of judges from Google, ZocDoc, Oscar and Blueprint Health picked the top three winners. The $50,000 first prize went to the team led by Oppenheimer, a programmer at the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Her app allows patients to search for other patients with similar health care issues or similar interests and communicate via a closed Google Hangout. The hospital could also use Hacking for health The $50,000 first place prize went to the team led by Hannah Oppenheimer. Hangouts to deliver information to patients such as a question-and-answer session to new mothers. Oppenheimer got the idea when she worked at a camp for children with life-threatening diseases. One child, with cystic fibrosis, could never be in the presence of others with the same disease because of a lethal risk of cross-infection. Oppenheimer told the judges that studies indicate that interactions with other children both inside and outside of the hospital improves a child s quality of life and decreases hospital time. This event was one way that we could make that idea into a reality, she said. Stanislav Bogdanov and John Kinney were the two masterminds behind Intemed, which won the $25,000 second prize. A lot of people in hospitals are just bored because they have no one talk to, said Kinney. Their app allows people to connect with their family, friends and even other patients through a variety of social media including text messaging, Facebook and video chats. The social media is integrated right into the app, making it easy for patients who ve never used it. Intermed s app featured larger buttons and bigger text for people with visual impairments. But developer Peter Newhook took accessibility a giant step further. His web-based app, Healthcare.love, reads screen text aloud. A lot of our design doesn t take accessibility into account until later, and when it s bolted on, it feels artificial, he said. Users speak questions like Can I take aspirin? and the app checks the patient s medications and responds out loud whether or not the drug would conflict with other prescriptions. The app also navigates to different pages with voice commands. Newhook also incorporated a face recognition feature that allowed users to navigate without clicking or touching the screen. If you treat accessibility as a first-class feature, you come up with a different user experience, he said. Two brothers, Shahriar and Fam Sikder, took home the $15,000 third prize. Their app allows patients to message physicians, schedule and check-in for appointments. Family members can also logon and keep tabs on their loved ones. Patients can rack up bonus points by keeping appointments and taking quizzes. It incentivizes health care, Fahm Sikder told the judges.

Uptown artist, Felipe Galindo, was voted the winner of NoMAA s Uptown Arts Stroll poster contest. While facing some stiff competition, Felipe s design captured the essence of the arts Uptown with a piece of work that was jovial, exuberant and nuanced. Much love also goes to NoMAA and everyone that came out for a wonderful evening at the beloved Shabazz Center. Humorist Christina Bebeau penned another incredibly witty piece about the neighborhood, the GW Bridge and the Palisades. If you have not read her stuff, prepare yourself for a left-of-center and quirky writer that will make you burst out laughing at the oddest, seemingly unfunny and inappropriate things. You have been warned. Superstar young chef and entrepreneur, Eddie Huang, took a cultural and culinary trip Uptown in the latest episode of the popular web-series Fresh Off the Boat. Eddie stops by El Malecon, El Tina as well as a bunch of local spots alongside the Bronx s own, and a star in his own right, Loopy. The tax deadline is almost upon us.

6 The Price of a Poverty Stigma By Letitia James New York City Public Advocate There s simply nothing more important than the health of our children and families. Recently, I was joined by a consortium of over 120 of the city s leading food advocacy, health, and parent organizations to announce a plan that will provide universal free lunch for all New York City public school students. Today, over 75% of city public school students are eligible for free or reducedprice school lunch an estimated 780,000 students and many students from families just above the income threshold but still struggling. Unfortunately, in part because of the poverty stigma associated with school lunch and understandable fears of undocumented families filling out the significant required paperwork to qualify an estimated 250,000 income eligible city students do not participate in the school lunch program. That s a quarter million children who are allowed to access free or reduced price lunch but don t do so largely because of the poverty stigma. The problem gets worse as children get older and societal pressures increase: 81% of elementary school students eat school lunch, but that number drops to 61% by middle school, and 38% in high school. We know that universal school lunch works because we already have it in select low-income schools in New York City. We simply want to expand that accessibility. Boston, Dallas, and Chicago already have similar free lunch policies, as do New York State cities like Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Hempstead, and Poughkeepsie. The simple fact is that every child must be guaranteed access to healthy food during the school day. We know that when children are hungry, they are less likely to be attentive in class, and they are less likely to get the most out of their education. We have spoken with Mayor de Blasio and New York City Department of Education (DOE) Chancellor Carmen Fariña to secure funding for universal free lunch. In my opinion, the simplest option is a direct allocation in the Mayor s proposed budget. The federal government pays the bulk of the costs associated with school lunch in New York City. For the school year, the federal government paid $298,121, 850 for schools meals and the city made up the difference of $37,564,748. If we provide every child with a free lunch in the City of New York it will only cost an additional $20 million. We will spend just $20 more per student each year. This increase will amount to less than 1/10 th of a percent of the entire DOE budget, which is nearly $25 billion. Universal free lunch doesn t require legislative action or approval from Albany. Let s work with the mayor, who can institute universal free lunch with a stroke of his pen, and help erase the stigma associated with poverty or immigration status for thousands of New York City children. The health of our children and families depends on it. Op/Ed Public Advocate Letitia James El precio del estigma de la pobreza Por Letitia James Defensora Pública de la ciudad de Nueva York Simplemente, no hay nada más importante que la salud de nuestros hijos y familias. Hace poco, conté con la participación de un consorcio de más de 120 organizaciones de padres, salud y defensa de líderes de la alimentación de la ciudad para anunciar un plan que ofrecerá almuerzo gratis universal a todos los estudiantes de escuelas públicas de la Ciudad de Nueva York. Actualmente, más del 75% de los estudiantes de escuelas públicas de la ciudad cumplen con los requisitos para recibir un almuerzo escolar gratis o a precio reducido aproximadamente, 780,000 alumnos así como muchos estudiantes de familias que se encuentran justo por encima del umbral de ingresos, pero atravesando serias dificultades. Lamentablemente, en parte debido al estigma de la pobreza asociado con el almuerzo escolar y a miedos entendibles de familias indocumentadas al tener que completar los trámites requeridos para calificar, se calcula que 250,000 estudiantes de la ciudad elegibles por su nivel de ingresos no participan en el programa de almuerzo escolar. Eso se traduce en un cuarto de millón de niños que pueden acceder al almuerzo gratis o a precio reducido, pero que no lo hacen debido al estigma de la pobreza. El problema empeora a medida que los niños crecen y las presiones sociales aumentan: el 81% de los estudiantes de escuelas de enseñanza primaria comen el almuerzo escolar, pero esa cifra desciende al 61% en la escuela media y al 38% en la escuela superior. Sabemos que el almuerzo escolar universal funciona, porque ya está implementado en escuelas seleccionadas de bajos ingresos en la Ciudad de Nueva York. Simplemente queremos ampliar esa accesibilidad. Boston, Dallas y Chicago ya cuentan con políticas similares de almuerzos gratis, al igual que las ciudades del estado de Nueva York, como Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Hempstead y Poughkeepsie. Lo cierto es que a cada niño se le debe garantizar acceso a una comida saludable durante la jornada escolar. Sabemos que cuando los niños tienen hambre, tienen menos probabilidades de prestar atención en clase y de aprovechar al máximo su educación. Hemos hablado con el Alcalde de Blasio y la Canciller Carmen Fariña, al frente del Departamento de Educación de la Ciudad de Nueva York (DOE), para garantizar la financiación del almuerzo gratis universal. En mi opinión, la opción más simple es una asignación directa en el presupuesto propuesto del Alcalde. El gobierno federal paga la mayor parte de los costos asociados con el almuerzo escolar en la Ciudad de Nueva York. En el año escolar , el gobierno federal pagó $298,121,850 para comidas escolares, y la ciudad compensó la diferencia de $37,564,748. Si le ofrecemos a cada niño almuerzo gratis en la Ciudad de Nueva York, solamente costará un adicional de $20 millones. Gastaremos tan solo $20 más por estudiante cada año. Este aumento ascenderá a menos de un décimo del uno por ciento de todo el presupuesto del DOE, que es de casi $25 billones. El almuerzo gratis universal no requiere de acción legislativa o aprobación de Albany. Trabajemos con el Alcalde, quien puede instaurar el almuerzo gratis universal de un plumazo, y ayudemos a eliminar el estigma asociado con la pobreza o la condición de inmigrante en miles de niños de la Ciudad de Nueva York. La salud de nuestros niños y familias depende de eso. FOUNDERS/ PUBLISHERS Luis A.

7 A dream deferred? Advocates vow renewed fight Story and photos by Robin Elisabeth Kilmer Despite the abundance of four-leaf clover, it was no happy holiday for thousands of undocumented students this past St. Patrick s Day. On Mon., Mar. 17 th, the New York State Senate voted down passage of the Dream Act. The Act would allow undocumented immigrant students to apply for state tuition assistance, expand access to the State s 529 College Savings Program, and create a private scholarship fund available to undocumented students. Had it passed, New York would have been only the fifth U.S. state to offer financial aid to undocumented students. The measure had already passed last month in the Democratic-controlled State Assembly. Two Republican Senators, Senator Phil Boyle of Long Island and Senator Kemp Hannon of Nassau County, were absent for Monday s vote. But all Republican Senators present voted against the measure, as did two Democrats Simcha Felder of Brooklyn and Ted O Brien of Rochester. With 32 votes required, the final Senate vote of on Monday represented a narrow margin of defeat along partisan lines and a stinging setback for advocates. It hit particularly close to home for many in Northern Manhattan and the Bronx who had hoped to see the Dream Act become a reality. There s no way to show the depth of disappointment we have, said Razeem Zaman, campaign organizer of the New York State Youth Leadership Conference (NYSYLC), a youth immigrant advocacy organization which has sought passage of the Dream Act for the past four years. Once again, the doors to higher education have been barred. I am deeply disappointed in my colleagues who do not view the empowerment of young people as good public policy, said State Senator Adriano Espaillat, himself an immigrant from the Dominican Republic. But those opposed to the measure have argued that the focus should be on expanding resources for documented students and their families. Many legal families are struggling with the high cost of college education, said Republican Senator Mark J. Grisanti of Buffalo. Co-Senate Leader Jeff Klein brought the vote to the floor. I am deeply disappointed, said State Senator Adriano Espaillat. It was the Bronx s Senator Jeffrey Klein, co-leader of the Senate and head of the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC), who brought the controversial vote on Monday night. You re either standing up for these students to get their shot, or standing in the way, said Sen. Klein in his remarks on the floor. I don t know why they voted so soon, said Washington Heights resident and Lehman College student Cesar Andrade. [He] should have waited. Andrade gave voice to the concerns of those who felt that the vote had been rushed before its passage was secured. Gov. Andrew Cuomo too has come under fire for not more actively supporting the bill, despite calling it a priority. He could have done more, that s for sure, said Andrade. Sen. Klein spokesperson Anna Durrett insisted that the frustration was shared. Sen. Klein and his colleagues in the IDC have long supported the Dream Act because they believe every high school graduate should have access to an affordable college education, she wrote in a statement. While our members are disappointed with the outcome, we believe this was an important vote to have. She noted that Monday s vote made clear who supported the bill and who did not. We now know where everyone in the Senate stands on Dream Act, including two Senate Democrats who effectively blocked the Dream Act from passing. The New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) has long pressured the New York Legislature to pass the New York State Dream Act since the federal Dream Act failed in Congress in Those who voted no on the New York State Dream Act have shut the door on opportunity for our State s youth, said NYIC Executive Director Steven Choi. They have squandered an important investment in young people who can boost New York s economy, support our communities, and serve as our State s future leaders. But advocates say they will not be deterred. When it comes to education, it s not a handout, it s an investment, argued Andrade, who will graduate from Lehman this year, and hopes to further his education and work within the medical field. Zaman too believes that the Dream Act Advocates for the New York State Dream Act insist they will fight on. Photo: J. Reznick could still be revived through an allocation in the budget by Gov. Cuomo. This can still get done next week, she said. Choi agreed that the issue was not over. march 19, 2014 Manhattan Times In the coming weeks, we will ramp up the pressure and demand action, he said. Let us be clear: We will not stand idly by while our elected officials in Albany play political football with the lives of immigrant youth.
