Celebrate Car Free Earth Day in New York City

Celebrate Car Free Earth Day in New York City

New York City is definitely a walking town, but that doesn't mean the traffic isn't brutal. In fact, traffic congestion is so bad that the City is proposing a congestion tax, that would charge drivers traveling in highly congested areas during the times of day when traffic is at its heaviest. To off set this and to encourage walking and public transportation, NYC will hold the third annual Car Free Earth Day event on Saturday April 21, 2018, the day before Earth Day. From Times Square to Union Square, Broadway will be closed to cars and only available to pedestrians and cyclists.

Queens Girls Dream Big with 'Rad Girl Revolution'

Queens Girls Dream Big with 'Rad Girl Revolution'

In the 1980s, Ozone Park, Queens, native Cyndi Lauper swept Billboard charts with her hit single, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” And she’s right—they do. However, they also want to be taken seriously, especially when it comes to their career aspirations. With this notion at the forefront of their minds, two Forest Hills moms, Sharita Manickam and Jen Bruno, hope to challenge gender stereotypes with their in-development hardcover children’s book, Rad Girl Revolution. Rad stands for Rise Above Doubt and Reach Any Dream; and their motivational book will feature 30 inspiring storybook-style photos of real little girls in occupations that are generally male-dominated, or assumed to be, such as Scientist, Judge, Artist, Astronaut, Doctor, and more. A diverse group of girls are featured in the book, with a majority of them from Queens.
