Monday Bulletin: Morninghenge, MLK Events, School Mental Health, Hot Milkman


You’ve heard of Manhattanhenge, where the setting sun lines up with the street grid four times a year. Now check out “Morninghenge”, when the rising sun lines up with the street grid in the other direction. Richard Hayden coined that phrase after taking this shot on 72nd Street.

January 20, 2020 Weather: Sunny, with a high of 32 degrees.

Notices:
“The art and politics of clay” and other local events are on our calendar!

Find a service opportunity for MLK Day. Or support the march by the Manhattan Country Day School.

A entrance to Riverside Park is now closed: “The 59th St. entrance to Riverside Park South will be closed for approximately 4 months for reconstruction of the riprap and waterfront curb north of entrance. The area was damaged from Sandy in 2012 & FEMA has funded the repairs. There is an alternative pedestrian walkway along the bike path.”

Local leader George Zeppenfeldt-Cestero, a member of Community Board 7 and the president of National Association of Hispanic Healthcare Executives (NAHHE),Β  has died. “George was a visionary man dedicated to NAHHE’s mission for more than 20 years and until the very end,” the NAHHE wrote.

News:
Local state Senator Brad Hoylman is pushing a bill to give more state resources to schools for mental health. “His bill requires schools to adopt new policies on support, intervention and suicide prevention, according to WCBS 880’s Steve Burns. There’s also a special emphasis on addressing the needs of higher risk groups.”

There’s a “hot milkman” delivering milk to people throughout the city, including on the Upper West Side, according to the Post. “‘He’s such a hunk,’ longtime customer Lia Shire, of the Upper West Side, tells The Post. ‘I have not bought milk or eggs from a grocery since I started with him,’ adds the married mom, who says she’s referred smitten friends.”

      Today is a day set aside to remember and honor late civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
      MLK Day is commemorated on the third Monday in January each year.
      Today’s official holiday is four days after King’s actual birthday on Jan. 15. … King was killed by an assassin on April 4, 1968 in Memphis.
      We are celebrating the life and achievements of Martin Luther King Jr., an influential American civil rights leader. He is most well-known for his campaigns to end racial segregation on public transport and for racial equality in the United States.
      God bless him and may he rest in peace knowingly his achievements and legacy will go on forever.
      Peace be with you.

      I must object to the sexual objectification of the “hot milkman.” What difference does it make that he is a hunk? Why can’t we focus on the milk itself or the poor cows that produce it?
      It is so difficult to be a hot male in our society.
      (Note: this is satire).

        Click the green link in the paragraph about the “hot milkman” above. I don’t think he’s all that hot, but that’s why they make different flavors of ice cream. πŸ™‚
