Episode #867: Remember Brunch?
First Broadcast: 7/20/20
This week, we mourned what we thought was the late Odessa Diner--unaware that only two days after our recording, the news of that restaurant's demise would be reported as extremely premature. It wasn't long before we started remembering Gray's Papaya, Papaya King, St. Mark's Comics, The Batcave, Village Comics, the Sunshine Cinema, the Pioneer Theater, and other fallen New York establishments. After that, we jumped to talking about a recent anti-gun violence march across the Brooklyn Bridge, which was apparently "hijacked" by a pro-police demonstration by the one of the local police unions--which is probably not the best way to participate in the ongoing nationwide discussion about defunding the police. More to come, eventually!
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
