THIS SUNDAY: 6th Annual Memorial Ride & Walk

This item was brought to my attention by a lady named Leah. This upcoming Sunday, March 13, the folks behind will be conducting their 6th Annual Memorial Ride & Walk. Follows is a very general outline of their proposed schedule:

Queens: 12:00 p.m., northwest corner of Juniper Park, Juniper Blvd. N. & Lutheran Ave
Bronx: 1:15 p.m, E. Fordham Rd & Webster Ave (4 to Fordham Rd, B, D to Grand Concourse or MetroNorth to Fordham Road)
Staten Island: 1:30 p.m., Everything Goes Book Cafe, 208 Bay St between Victory and Hannah
Brooklyn: 1:40 p.m., Linton Park (1 block north of 2/3/4/5 to Van Siclen)
Manhattan: 3:00 p.m., Pelham Fritz Rec Center, Marcus Garvey Park, Mount Morris Park West (just west of 5th) at 122nd St
Convergence: 5:00 p.m., Brooklyn Borough Hall

I have been told a starting point in Greenpoint has been added: 1:00 p.m., on the steps of St Anthony’s, Greenpoint Avenue & Milton St (1/2 block from Greenpoint G stop). The rain/snow date for this event is March 20th. You can view updated information regarding this multi-borough event by checking out Ghost Bikes’s web site.

Closing on a related note, I would like to remind everyone that one of our own, Emilie Gossiaux, was seriously injured by a hit and run driver October of last year. You can read more about this amazing young woman, her recovery and tender a donation towards her (copious) medical expenses by clicking here.

Quicklink: YRU On My Train?

Props go out to Subway Art Blog for spotting this gem. He writes:

What could possibly drive two aspiring actresses to start interviewing strangers in the subway? Sheer curiosity.

Why Are You on My Train? is a video blog by Alli Goldberg and Jen Jamula. Both of them moved to New York to pursue their acting careers after graduating from Yale’s theater department, but found themselves doing something they never expected. “Our blog was partly born out of riding the subway to and from auditions and a) wondering who the people were around us and b) wanting to engage,” explained Jen…

In the meantime here’s a choice morsel:

Thank you for covering feral cats (and domestic cats), as well as doing posts about TNR workshops.  I’m writing to see if you’d consider doing a post for National Feral Cat Day (on very short notice – it’s 10/16!) to raise awareness about feral cats and what people can do to help.

Every neighborhood in NYC has feral cats and most people innocently feed them, not knowing you can do anything else to help out these feline underdogs. But they can – through Trap-Neuter-Return! Our website with general information is here. And the workshops, including one on 10/16, are listed here.

We’re always willing to provide feral cat content at any time, National Feral Cat Day or not, so please keep us in mind!

Duly blogged!
