In January 1898 the independent City of Brooklyn merged with the City of New York, and Kings County became the Borough of Brooklyn, at which time the building became Brooklyn Borough Hall." ~Wikipedia 📸: @NYCLovesNYC

A great shot of last Sunday's protests walking through West 13th Street, in Manhattan! We all want justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many other names. Nothing can just "Go back to normal"....as we've said and so many did too: "Normal was NOT working". Together we are stronger and together we can change. Photo Credit: @4theinsta
I believe you've all been seeing on TV, reading, following on Social Media (or hopefully even being part of) this amazing moment in our history.

Let's start our Saturday morning with a big smile, spreading the love for our beautiful New York City and reading some of Einstein's wise words: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.

Flushing Meadows-Corona Park just got a new gift from the Cuban-American Contemporary artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada (@Gerada_Art)!

It's also a homage to all of those doctors, nurses and everyone on the frontline fighting to save lives! Thank you! 📸@GreenPointInnovations
“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass.” ~ Maya Angelou *** "Fearless Girl is a bronze sculpture by Kristen Visbal. It depicts a girl four foot high, promoting female empowerment. It is located across from the New York Stock Exchange in the Financial District of Manhattan in New York City. A plaque with footprints was placed on the original site of Fearless Girl." ~ Wikipedia Photo Credit: @GothamLove
People are saying, and I've wrongly and inaccurately phrased it as well a few times: "Soon we'll be back to (the new) normal".... but when we think, we CAN'T EVER go back to anything. There is no "BACK". There can be a new normal, ok...but we can only move FORWARD. Humanity was living their lives like a crazy ungoverned truck that was seconds from crashing, but Mother Earth saved us and made us stop. Use this as a lesson. Don't blind your eyes...

We published earlier this week some amazing pictures taken by the talented NY-based photographer Jeremy Cohen! And we can't stop having fun with them!

This time, you'll see New Yorkers practicing boxing, making out (wuhu!), jumping rope, painting, even flying a kite and a full band playing to a neighbor! Which one is your favorite?
