Twenty NYC fire companies, including three in The Bronx, have been saved from proposed cuts citywide.
Mayor Bloomberg's budget proposal for 2012 included these fire companies, which were slated for closing.
Among these saved companies is our very own ladder #53 company right here on City Island.
Summer is in full swing, but its not too late to transform your back-yard, or front patio into a botanical paradise. In fact, the ladies garden club of City Island has improved our look by planting new flowers along CI avenue.
All my friends and neighbors are amazed at these beautiful containers this year - I'm so proud to say that they were created with love and a little elbow grease by volunteers.. Please, send your tax deductible donations to:

C-SPAN HAS launched a StudentCam website, asking students in grades 6-12 to:
“Select any provision of the U.S. Constitution and create a video illustrating why it’s important to you.”
Please help us spread the word by forwarding the site to any student, teacher, or parent who you think may be interested. It is an enriching learning experience for all of the students involved and once again there will be 75 cash prizes awarded, up to $50,000, for the winning students and faculty.

The 2011 Fish Parade took place on Saturday June 25th, 2011. The parade route and locations was the same as in past years and US Congressman Jose Serrano, D-NY http://serrano.house.gov was kind enough to lead this neighborhood spectacular. News 12 http://www.news12.com and Bronxnet http://www.bronxnet.org were both on hand to video document these festivities.
