FACTS ABOUT NEW YORK

1.New York is the most populous city in the United States, and the center of the New York metropolitan area, which is one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world. The city's 2009 estimated population approached 8.4 million.

2.Many districts and landmarks in the city have become well known to outsiders. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Times Square, iconified as "The Crossroads of the World", is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theater district, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry.

3.New York's nonwhite population was 36,620 in 1890. In the 1920s, New York City was a prime destination for African Americans during the Great Migration from the American South. By 1916, New York City was home to the largest urban African diaspora in North America. The Harlem Renaissance flourished during the era of Prohibition, coincident with a larger economic boom that saw the skyline develop with the construction of competing skyscrapers. Today New York has the largest African American community of any city in the country. 

4.New York City is composed of five boroughs. (Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island and the Bronx) Queens County: Pop. 2,306,712 is geographically the largest borough and the most ethnically diverse county in the United States, and may overtake Brooklyn as the city's most populous borough due to its growth. Historically a collection of small towns and villages founded by the Dutch, today the borough is predominantly residential and middle class. Queens County is the only large county in the United States where the median income among African Americans, approximately $52,000 a year, is higher than that of White Americans. 

5.Numerous major American cultural movements began in the city, such as the Harlem Renaissance, which established the African-American literary canon in the United States. The city was a center of jazz in the 1940s, abstract expressionism in the 1950s and the birthplace of hip hop in the 1970s. The city prominently excels in its spheres of art, cuisine, dance, music, opera, theater, independent film, fashion, museums, and literature. 

 

 

6.The city also has a major ethnic press, with 270 newspapers and magazines published in more than 40 languages. El Diario La Prensa is New York's largest Spanish-language daily and the oldest in the nation. The New York Amsterdam News, published in Harlem, is a prominent African American newspaper. The Village Voice is the largest alternative newspaper.

7.Organized crime has long been associated with New York City, beginning with the Forty Thieves and the Roach Guards in the Five Points in the 1820s. The 20th century saw a rise in the Mafia dominated by the Five Families and they still are the largest and most powerful criminal organization in the city. Gangs including the Black Spades also grew in the late 20th century. As early as 1850, New York City recorded more than 200 gang wars fought largely by youth gangs. The most prominent gangs in New York City today are the Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings, and MS-13.

 

8.The New York Public Library, which has the largest collection of any public library system in the country, serves Manhattan, The Bronx, and Staten Island. Queens is served by the Queens Borough Public Library, which is the nation's second largest public library system, and Brooklyn Public Library serves Brooklyn. The New York Public Library has several research libraries, including the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.

 

9.The area averages 234 days with at least some sunshine annually, and averages 58% of possible sunshine annually. Winters are cold and damp, and prevailing wind patterns that blow offshore minimize the moderating effects of the Atlantic Ocean. The average temperature in January, the area's coldest month, is 32.1 °F. However temperatures in winter could for a few days be as low as 10 °F and as high as 50 °F . Spring and autumn are unpredictable, and can range from chilly to warm, although they are usually pleasantly mild with low humidity. Summers are typically hot and humid with a July average of 76.5 °F.

What’s Happening?

Combating Teen Homelessness In NYC With Technology Top IT

Experts Team Up to Educate Teens in Foster Care

DEC, 2016, New York, NY - The statistics are alarming. Eighty percent of homeless people in NYC were formerly in the foster care system. When a foster-care youth reaches the age of 18 and has not been adopted, they "age out" of the system and are essentially abandoned and completely unprepared to be on their own. Almost universally, they have minimal education, very high dropout rates, absolutely no parental or adult guidance, no life skills, no qualifications, and no living arrangements.

 

That's why the Techie Youth Foundation's Founder and President - Eric David Benari, is on a mission. He's teamed up with other experts in the field to provide free IT education to any youth of employable age in the foster-care system to help combat homelessness. 

 

" It is never the kids' fault they are in the foster-care system. Most of them enter the system due to severe parental abuse or extreme neglect. Kids who don't enter the Techie Youth program and age-out of care are likely to become incarcerated within 18-24 months. Many will become homeless, and nearly half of all females will become pregnant within one year. Any of the students who participate in the program could within a very short time be earning much more than what is required to live adequately,” says Benari.

After five months of classes, the Techie Youth Foundation is proud to announce they recently celebrated their first graduating class at the Microsoft Store on 5th Avenue. About Eric David Benari:

David Benari, PMP, is the Founder & President of Techie Youth. He is an IT business expert and master-technologist who has founded and/or built the infrastructure for a large portfolio of ventures, spanning sectors of social networks, e-commerce, B2B, open-source, online advertising (while in a senior-role at Yahoo!) and others. Benari has been invited to speak at numerous conferences and universities, including NYU and MIT, and is a published writer for Forbes and MIT CIO Corner, to name a few. Benari is also the Chairman/Coordinator/Organizer of the world's largest community of data base technology professionals.

Amida Care and ASCNYC Members Celebrate Graduation From Workforce

Initiative Network Program in Peer Education and Health Outreach.

Members of the latest class of Amida Care’s Workforce Initiative Network and the AIDS Service Center of New York City’s Peer Training Institute’s collaborative program gathered at the AIDS Service Center of New York City in midtown on March 21 to celebrate their graduation from the program. Amida Care—New York’s largest special needs health plan (SNP) for people with chronic conditions such as HIV/AIDS—launched the Workforce Initiative Network (WIN) program in collaboration with Housing Works and the AIDS Service Center of New York City to empower people living with HIV/AIDS to position themselves as successful jobcandidates, and ultimately take ownership of their health as well as to inspire others to make healthy choices. Fifteen graduates, including nine Amida Care members, completed the latest WIN training program.

“Being perinatally diagnosed as HIV-positive, adopted, and transgender, I could not find acceptance around me,” said Monique Mackey, a graduate of the WIN program and an Amida Care member. “Today I can say that I am a better person because of this program, and I can pursue my life’s mission to help others until they’re able to help themselves.” 

The six-week class, which is offered four times a year, is designed to help Amida Care members develop marketable skills that they can use to get a job. Members of the WIN program are trained to use their life experience for jobs in health navigation and outreach. These trained peer educators deliver community education and health coaching to hundreds of New Yorkers every year, helping those who are HIV-positive engage in treatment, those who have not been tested and do not yet know their status get tested for HIV, or those who may be at greater risk of becoming infected learn about prevention tools like pre-exposure prophylaxis.

Weeksville Hunterfly Road Historic Houses

Though only rediscovered in 1968, Weeksville, a thriving village of free African-Americans, was established in 1838 as an independent community in the heart of Brooklyn.

10 Best Tours to Honor Black History Month in New York City

 

To get a deeper understanding of African-American heritage in New York, take a walking, bus or house tour where you'll see first-hand the incredible impact of the community on the city.

 

New York City has a rich heritage of African-American culture that dates back almost 400 years to 1626 when the first slaves were brought here. Since then, contributions from famous and everyday heroes have helped to create the vibrant African-American community that exists today. From the Harlem Renaissance in the early 20th century that spawned incredible art (Romare Bearden), literature (Langston Hughes) and music (Louis Armstrong), to the 19th century free African-American community in Weeksville, Brooklyn, and the Civil Rights movements of the 1960s, New York’s neighborhoods are teeming with stories, and we’ve pulled together a list of 10 tours that cover the gamut of African-American history in New York from music and food to art and culture.

 

New York City Slavery & Underground Railroad Tour

African-American history is hidden across the city, and this walking tour from Inside Out opens visitors’ eyes to the fight for freedom that took place across the city. From a Colonial burial ground with 419 Africans and African descendants interred that is now a National Historic Landmark to important sights along the Underground Railroad like a coffee shop that was once home to David Ruggles, who helped hundreds escape from slavery, the two-hour tour touches on the slaves that history often overlooks and the true story of New Yorkers who risked everything to help them. Along the way, you’ll hear heroic tales and visit the former locations of homes and churches where seemingly small deeds had a huge impact on history.

 

DETAILS: Saturdays 2pm to 4pm; $31.50 (get tickets!), advance purchase only; Lower Manhattan (meeting place provided after purchasing)

Walker just to name a few. From the founding of Harlem as a Dutch outpost in the 1600s to the changing landscape we see today, this is a great introduction to the neighborhood.

The house is preserved with uniquely decorated rooms that were designed by his wife Lucille. Just wait until you see the all-blue kitchen! You’ll also visit the handsome study where Louis met with famous guests, listened to music from his library, and recorded interviews.

NYC Cultural Sites

African Burial Ground Museum

The only preserved African burial site in an American urban area from the 17th and 18th centuries, this National Historic Landmark was used as a cemetery for nearly 100 years. Today it honors the memories of an estimated 15,000 enslaved and free Africans interred in the burial ground. The original site encompassed most of the park space in front of City Hall. The remains of more than 400 people were recovered during 1991 federal building construction in the vicinity of Broadway and Reade Street. A thoughtful and engaging monument by Rodney Leon completes the site. The museum includes four exhibit areas, a 40-person theatre and a store located on the first floor of the Ted Weiss Federal Building. A FREE walking tour of the historic area begins at 26 Wall Street and ends at the African Burial Grounds.

Studio Museum in Harlem

 Founded in 1968 by a diverse group of artists, community activists and philanthropists, the Studio Museum in Harlem has become a magnet for local, national and international artists of African descent and for work inspired and influenced by black culture. This cultural gem was originally located at 2055 Fifth Avenue. In 1979, the New York Bank for Savings donated the current building for larger space. In 1985, the museum expanded to an adjacent lot to host a number of outdoor events. Over time, generous support has enabled the museum to add gallery space, and a theater to accommodate larger temporary exhibitions and a permanent collection that includes nearly 2000 paintings, sculptures, watercolors, drawings, pastels, prints, photographs, mixed-media works and installations dating from the nineteenth century to the present. Featured artists in its celebrated collection include Romare Bearden, Robert Colescott, Jacob Lawrence, Norman Lewis, Chris Ofili, Betye Saar, Lorna Simpson, Hale Woodruff and James VanDerZee. This eponymous venue is a frequent host of galas, special community events and fundraisers. Further evidence of the museum’s commitment to art education is its semi-annual Studio Magazine. The diverse, well appointed gift shop is a must visit for savvy art collectors.

Harlem

Harlem, stretching from 110th Street to about 151st Street, began its a special calling to African-Americans when T. Thomas Fortune’s New York Age newspaper began publicizing local attractions to them. That quickly triggered White Flight from 1900-1910. At the same time, African-Americans were being driven out of their neighborhoods, in what is now called Penn Station and Lincoln Center.

African-Americans followed the newspaper ads to cheaper rents in Harlem. Real estate interests who overbuilt, were unable to find sufficient white tenants. Economic necessity made them sell properties to the Afro-American Realty Company in 1910.

The Afro-American Realty Company, headed by Phillip A Payton and Charles Anderson, both protégés of Booker T. Washington, put his words into action. Payton and Anderson felt that the only way African Americans could make it in America and New York, is if the “race got a bank book.” Harold Cruse notes in the Crisis of the Negro Intellectual, “The operations for the Afro-American Realty Company spearheaded the growth of Black Harlem by either leasing or buying apartment dwellings that could not be rented to Negroes”. As the Afro-American Realty Company bought up sections of Harlem, whites fled, and a wave of Blacks from the South and the Caribbean came to the area, tripling New York’s black population. In fact, Manhattan borough in New York City became the largest black populace city in the United States by 1920.

This population increase, combined with access to patrons of all colors who supported entertainment, arts and literature, fueled the Harlem Renaissance. That is how Harlem became home to the largest number of the black intellectuals and artists in American history from the 1920s-50s.

It is home to two of the oldest Black churches in America, Mother AME Zion Church and Abyssinian Baptist Church. Marcus Garvey paraded the ideals of Black Nationalism down Lenox Avenue. New York Amsterdam News chronicled the gradual integration of Black life into mainstream life from the 20th to the 21st century. Harlem nightclubs and ballrooms are where Duke Ellington, Dizzie Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Chick Webb, Fletcher Henderson and most Jazz artists reached the height of their powers.

In the 1930s, millionaire Madame C.J. Walker opened hair salons and Joe Louis celebrated some of his most famous victories here. The mysterious Father Divine headquartered his religious empire in Harlem that helped feed thousands during the Great Depression. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his most famous Stop the Vietnam War speech at Riverside Church in Harlem. In fact, Harlem was a hotbed for supporters of the modern Civil Rights Movement, at Abyssinian Baptist and Canaan Baptist churches in particular. Sidney Poitier, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee slept at the Harlem YMCA while refining their craft at its theatre. Adam Clayton Powell Jr. and Malcolm X led Black empowerment rallies on Lenox Avenue.

During that period, Malcolm X came to the forefront of America’s consciousness. He energized the Harlem Mosque for the Nation of Islam, and became the mouthpiece of a new intellectual Black Nationalist Movement. After separating from the Nation of Islam in 1964, Malcolm chose Harlem as the launching ground for his new movement, the Organization for African American Unity before his death in 1965.

Malcolm-X

Malcolm X

scholarly pursuits, no other building holds a richer archive of Black history than Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. In such times, jazz musicians and composers such as Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and many others were well patronized, allowing them to put jazz in finishing school as a major art form in the cultural center of America. Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Zora Neale Hurston kept it real while cultivating minds across America.'

Harlem went through a long period of depression after the riots of April 1968, when most of Black America blew up in the outrage of Dr. King’s assassination. With fewer business loans to rebuild, Harlem took it on the chin. Just to get something built for temporary jobs, many politicians were happy to get federal and state grants to build poor people warehouses (“Projects”) in Harlem. Many of housing projects where built over historic sites without placing a historic marker.'

That was the last straw for Harlem’s Black middleclass who migrated to the suburbs or elsewhere in droves. The delicate balance of an economically healthy Harlem fell so far, that you couldn’t find a bookstore here for two decades.

Credit is due to Magic Johnson, Mother AME Zion Church and Abyssinian Baptist Church for keeping the faith baby. In the 200s, their hard work gathered the resources to both build and attract redevelopment of 125th Street and Lenox Avenue. Then the Apollo Theater attracted enough patronage and funding to renovate. Today, you see white performers coming to the Apollo Theater for a kind of “Hipness Blessing” and people of all stripes shopping on 125th Street. Fear not protectors of black culture, you will never forget that you are in our Harlem.
