Kingston Penitentiary


I drove through Kingston last week, and I passed Canada's super-maximum federal penitentiary, which is located there. The architecture of the old stone prison is so reminiscent of an old British fortress, which I think it once was. I snapped a...

The Dieing Shame of Bushwick!!

It is so sad,and dam shameful that the neighborhood that I grew up in has become.Only thing is that the two sides of the problems with the Bushwick/Ridgewood,neighborhood is the lack of respect for the community, the Pct police officers who turned their backs on the community,because the political parties in the first place didn't even have the cojones to get involved.And the other side of the second problem is how all the Churches,Catholic,Baptist,Methodist main ones of the community.They closed their doors to the people who need to know that they are not going to be the first to abandon their needs. I grew up in Bushwick,we moved in to the neighborhood in 1962 from the Williamsburg area,because the neighborhood was starting to get crappie,so my parents decided to make the move to Bushwick,where I went to P.S.106 and then to P.S.75 on Grove Street and then to Halsey J.H.S.296.l went to St. Martins Catholic Church,when we lived on Central Ave & Jefferson.After J.F.K.was killed,we packed up and moved.But,before the move,my pops took us all together to our new place of residence.The place had been in a major fire from the basement clearly up to the third floors.But the first thing my mom did was to meet the neighbors, the butcher, the bakers,the grocery store owner,all the important places of the barrio you know.So getting back to the point of the neighborhood,that I lived.The last time I was there was in 2008.I was put in a situation where my parents needed my help in finding a new home for them,their problem was that the government and the scumlord was forcing senior citizens out by raising the rent 100% to 110% of what they were paying. There was a time that the people who lived there cared,of how their block looked.We had block parties during the holidays,social events ect.But now it seems like a person can not take a dump without someone suing you for things that you can not control.I went to the Catholic Church of St.Barbara which was one of the most beautifullest church anywhere in New York City and I saw the most disgusting,disrespectful act ever and I was so sad and really pissed off that someone dare paint graffiti tag on the walls of the church.And now there is an iron fence around the whole church.WTF is wrong with you people.?
