The whole Autisticana crew went on excursion to Fire Island. Originally we planned on going to Ocean Beach but missed the ferry so we went to Kismet. Some of us almost missed the boat because we got on the wrong ferry terminal boat but the correct time. The crew on the ferry was nice enough to save us time but made in time to catch the ferry to Fire Island. We landed at Kismet, Fire Island. The whole group took a wagon and went for a walk to Kismet Beach. When we got to the beach, some of us went to the water and others relaxed to enjoyed the view. Afterwards, we went for a walk around Kismet and walked through the town and the most interesting houses on the island. We saw signs and souvenirs as items for decoration. I saw some wagons and bicycles in the front yard since cars weren’t allow to go through Fire Island. Afterwards we went for dinner at a deli and we had ice cream, chicken tenders with fries, and a large pretzel. Finally we went saw the most interesting sunset and took the Ferry back to Bay Shore.
On my end I started off with riding on a wagon halfway before having all of the bags on the wagon. I went to the beach and had a blast by getting hit by the giant waves while I tried to avoid getting hit by the riptides. At one point I almost touched a jellyfish with a minor sting, during which I was hypnotized because it was a close call. While I went for a walk with the group, I found out that every wagon and bikes with baskets had a license plate so they know the name of the vehicle. It would be cool if they can customize the plate or get an old license plate for an souvenir so they can put on a vehicle. There’s also a wagon depot by the dock which every wagon should have a license plate to know the color and customize their plates from New York, Florida or whatever customized plate for an ocean-theme related name.
I loved walking around the beach and standing by the waves while feeling the sand being pulled in by the water. We also got to sit on our towels and talk about how interesting Kismet Beach was. At first I was nervous by the ferry because I kept thinking my stuff was going to fall off the boat but I got through it both to the island and back. I also enjoyed seeing an interesting fence rumored to belong to a “psycho killer” and eating at the deli with each other. I enjoyed a delicious dinner of fries and sparkling lemonade mixed with blackberry seltzer and seeing a beautiful sunset on the way back to Bay Shore.
The Matildas were able to overcome Canada in the last round of the group stages after surviving group stage B. The Matildas must find a way to advance to the Quarterfinals. Sam Kerr, Australia’s Captain, on the other hand, is happy to be back in place but will play as a sub to avoid repeat injuries if she gets on the pitch or if any adjustments are necessary. The game is sold out, with an audience of 75,874 breaking another record. The game was held at Stadium Australia in Sydney, New South Wales.
The match began with Denmark gaining the most of the advantage in the opening 20 minutes, before Australia seized possession of the ball but had few near chances. Mary Fowler maintained the ball after defending Denmark’s attempt, which she held on to in the 29th minute. Additionally, Fowler dispatched a long ball to Caitlin Foord by sprinting it, giving the Matilda’s a 1-0 lead and igniting the joy of the enthusiastic Australian fans. Emily van Egmond had a wonderful run in the 34th minute to set up Caitlin Foord, but she was unable to score another goal.Australia received a few beautiful passes from each player in the 42nd minute but couldn’t close the scoring opportunity. However, the match was really enjoyable for the Aussie fans that watched it. During the remaining 25 minutes before halftime, the Australians had assumed control.
The Matilda’s continued to be focused on winning and moving on to the quarterfinals as the second half got underway. At the 54th minute, the Matildas had a number of passes from the players, but traffic came in the way, and the Danish goaltender Lene Christensen was able to stop it in a straight line. Denmark began to take possession of the ball in the 55th minute, but Mackenzie Arnold had other ideas to keep Denmark from leveling the match. The Aussies had continued to push themselves to keep the match on track by moving up.At the 58th minute, van Egmond gave it to Caitilin Foord, who almost scored Australia’s second goal, but the Danish defenders refused to give Australia the lead, despite the fact that they played effectively for the most part. Katrina Gorry made a beautiful pass to Mary Fowler and then gave it to Caitlin Foord in the 64th minute but had a right away to gain a near position of obtaining their second goal of the match. Emily van Egmond had stopped the ball but Lene Christensen the Danish Goalkeeper was able to stop before it went in again. In the 68th minute, Australia received a free kick from Steph Caitiley to Cooney-Cross and awarded another corner kick. Sam Kerr was getting set to warm up as the crowd applauded for her as she prepared to play in the World Cup for the first time.
Caitlin Foord had possession of the ball during the 70th minute and enacted it to Kyra Cooney-Cross, who subsequently passed it to Caitlin Foord, who additionally passed it to Mary Fowler, who quickly stopped the ball and handed it back to Mary Fowler in the penalty box square, who provided a brief pass to Emily van Egmond, and finally delivered it to Hayley Raso, who scored an additional goal for Australia. Hayley Raso did an airplane lift as she scored for Australia which they knew the team could take a victory into the Quarterfinals. Even their teammates were thrilled during the celebration of another score that increased the advantage to 2-0. Both teams collided in the 75th minute, although Australia was prepared to unleash subs in the interim. After the last play, Hayley Raso and Emily van Egmond were sent off, allowing Sam Kerr and Cortnee Vine to come on as substitutes. Sam Kerr, Australia’s Captain, returned after a warm greeting from all of the supporters chanting her name, and she couldn’t be happier that she was finally allowed to compete in her host nation event. In the 85th minute, Denmark eventually regained possession of the ball and threw it to the left. The captain, Sam Kerr, had her first opportunity to score in the 87th minute, but she missed the target by kicking the ball above the goal post. The fans were pleased with Sam Kerr’s first genuine chance with the ball. Denmark was playing more aggressively in the 89th minute, but they kicked the ball volleyed, allowing MacKenzie to make a simple save for Australia. At the 91st minute, the Matildas produced superb passes from each play, but Cooney-Cross almost gave Australia a third goal, which barely missed the top goal post. The crowd was highly encouraging and enthusiastic when Tameka Yallop replaced Foord in the 95th and final minute just because Foord was the star player who helped the Matilda’s take the 1-0 lead during the first half of the match. The anticipation was electrifying at Stadium Australia in Sydney, where a sold-out crowd of 75,874 awaited the last and final play. When the final whistle blows, the Matildas have won the Round of 16 and will face either France or Morocco in the Quarterfinals, as everyone in the stadium is excited for their home country, despite the fact that the Matildas had an outstanding sensation about their performance against Denmark. Some of the most supportive fans also brought in their Sam Kerr sign to show the love of the match and the team itself.
In the Quarterfinals, Australia will face either France or Morocco, demonstrating to their supporters that Australia can potentially be one of the finest teams in the world in their own nation for hosting this year’s World Cup.
Having Sam Kerr back at the Matildas was a terrific sensation for all of the supporters, especially since she had been absent for the majority of the competition. It was great to watch her take part in the Women’s World Cup after recovering from a calf injury. Hopefully, she’ll get some rest so she’ll be ready for all of her home supporters. The Matildas were brilliant throughout the competition, especially after Kerr was benched in the Group Stages, which they won despite her absence. The love of soccer has shown some great characteristics on each individual player on the Australian Team to see what they are made of and their own unique style of play, which Coach Tony Gustavsson was delighted with, although they never surrendered their style of play regardless of whether they were the host nation of the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Even though on the bench, she remained a team player and assisted her colleagues in doing what they do best. Sam Kerr was an exceptional role model both on and off the field, indicating her genuine character and determination to never give up hope in spite of which player takes command of the squad, and it was all worth smiles.
When my twin brother Ryan and I were born prematurely both of us were 3 lbs and over two months early. I was diagnosed with moderate Cerebral Palsy (CP) at birth. Which means I have a brain hemorrhage in a very rare spot. My Cerebral Palsy affects my entire right side. When I was 22 years old I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). POTS means my heart rate goes very high and if I stand up or change positions too fast I pass out and my blood pressure goes very low. My Cerebral Palsy makes my POTS even more challenging. When I was 24 years old I was diagnosed with Epilepsy. Epilepsy (seizures) my Epilepsy spot is right next to my brain hemorrhage. Which makes my Epilepsy even more challenging. On top of me having Cerebral Palsy and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. I have to carry my emergency seizure medicine and wear my Apple Watch at all times. My medical team at (St. Charles Hospital) is amazing. They go above and beyond for me. I don’t know where I would be with them. At every stage of my life, I learn and accept that my life is harder than typical people’s before all of my diagnoses. But that doesn’t stop me. Even with all of my diagnoses I’m still not letting them hold me back from what I do with my life.
2Education/Molly: All of my schooling was very challenging but I did it. Thank God that Individualized Education (IEP) was so detailed and grew with me. From Elementary school to College, I had to work twice as hard as my peers because of all of my learning disabilities as well as my diagnoses. Resource room teachers from Elementary school to High school were great at realizing that I was having trouble and trying to find a solution. I would always ask the teacher if I was having trouble or if they could tell me facial expressions. As I entered Junior school and High school the material got because I was in Regents level classes. Which meant more homework and tests. My stress levels increased. But they were almost therapists to me because they would try to find a solution. If that didn’t work they would have a meeting with my teacher. Between myself, my resource room teacher, and my class teacher we would usually find a solution or have extra accommodation for that class. By Senior year my IEP was the size of a textbook with all of my accommodations. Once I entered College for my Bachelor’s Degree I had to find a College that had a great disability program. If they didn’t have that program I wouldn’t succeed. If I had a problem with a teacher, even after I asked the teacher. They would tell the teacher and help to find a solution. I even had a guidance counselor (Leighann) that was my lifeline. I would email her every day, and I would have a weekly meeting with her. If I didn’t have I didn’t her wouldn’t have been successful. When I got my Master’s Degree my College also had a great disability program and my teachers would email me, to see if I was having any problems with the material. From Elementary school to graduating with my Master’s Degree I went to a lot of tutoring and extra help sessions to better understand the material. Since graduating with my Master’s Degree it’s been very difficult for me to find a job with all of my diagnoses. I’m currently trying to get a job with the government in healthcare administration and leadership, that’s what my degrees are. When I was in College I was suicidal from all of the homework, tests, and stress. My therapist told me to bond with my rescue dog, Molly, which helped a ton. Without bonding with her. There’s no doubt in my mind, Coach Steve, Coach Bob, Chloe, Charmaine, Leighann, and my medical team’s minds that I wouldn’t be alive today. During this time I joined Rolling Thunder Special Needs Program Para-Athletics without the head Coaches Steve and Bob, Chloe and Charmaine watched out to see if I was displaying any suicidal signs during practice, road races, and track meets I joined this Track and Field Team help me feel included without any judgment because everyone understands what I was through. They listened to me and did everything I needed to still be alive. Even when Molly passed during the Coronavirus-19 Pandemic, everyone was there for them checking in on me to see if I was okay and not displaying any suicidal signs. Without all of these people and Molly, I would’ve committed suicide. That’s another of the many reasons why I’m so appreciative of these people because they didn’t have but they wanted to.
3Obstacles To Challenges /Training For Summer Paralympics Paris 2024/Field Hockey:
I’ve had many obstacles in my life. My medical team, Physical Therapists, and Occupational Therapists have been there the whole time. They have helped me turn everyday life activities that were insanely hard for me that turned into challenges because It’s very hard for me to use my right limbs, right fingers, and right toes even though I was stubborn and didn’t want to do them. But I had to be able to function in activities of daily life and be a successful functional person in society. I had to be successful to meet every goal the way they wanted which was “the correct way” or I failed the goal and had to keep working on the goal. I tried to find a shortcut for every goal but it didn’t work whatsoever. Even though all of these goals were hard to meet, I am a successful functional person in society. Thanks to their great work and for handling my stubbornness.
As for my training for The Summer Paralympic Games in Paris 2024 for Track and Field. My Track and Field Team is (Rolling Thunder Special Needs Program Para-Athletics) which is for disabled athletes, most of my teammates have Autism. The head coaches are Steve and Bob. There have been so many obstacles because of all of my diagnoses. Trying to figure out a way that I could successfully run without falling, passing out, or having a seizure. At every practice, I wear my helmet to help in case of emergency. But I didn’t give up and my coaches and pacers on my team didn’t either. Trying to successfully finish practice has also been an obstacle to my safety. I have to have modified practice, wear my helmet, have extra water breaks, and have to wear cooling towels when it’s hot out in case I have an emergency. Even use Quench Gum and Jelly Belly Sport Beans before and during every practice, road races, and track meet. To help me not have an emergency. All of my coaches and my pacers know my faces when I display those symptoms that I’m about to pass out or have a seizure. Another obstacle that turned into a challenge was running road
races successfully and not falling, passing out, or having a seizure. When I run road races I have my two pacers (Chloe and Charmaine) with me. One pacer is in front of me watching it to see if there’s a curb, a pothole, or if the road is uneven. My other pacer is next to me. I have to wear my leg brace, water hydration backpack, and helmet. In case anything happens to me. As well, in case I have a seizure they were taught how to give me my emergency seizure medication. That was difficult to solve, especially for my safety. My two pacers are amazing for keeping me safe. Even during the road race, they will not tell me what mile we’re at. They will only look at my Apple Watch which displays my heart rate. They’re constantly looking at my face to see if I’m about to pass out or have a seizure. Because they know my faces when I display those symptoms.
In terms of throwing the Shot Put and Discus that was a challenge trying to figure out how I would hold them and successfully throw them. My coaches and I figured out a way that works for me. As of writing, I’m on the Long Island Track and Field Team and the New York State Track and Field Team which I was surprised about. But it’s all because of my hard work. Of course, all my coaches go the extra mile. But didn’t any of these challenges stop me from quitting the team. I’m indebted to all of my coaches for them not giving up on me. I didn’t stop because it was an obstacle for me. All of these obstacles have helped me compete in track meets, most of them I’m competing against typical athletes.
Specifically, Training for The Summer Paralympic Games in Paris 2024 for Track and Field has been a challenge because I have to put in a ton of more work at practice, during the Road Races, and I have extra workouts that my other teammates don’t have. I have to a Paralympic Standards for the Cerebral Palsy (CP) category to be considered to compete in The Summer Paralympic Games in Paris 2024. Those Paralympic Standards for 100 meters, 200 meters, and Shot Put are very challenging, especially having moderate Cerebral Palsy (CP) because of the modifications I had to figure out and master to try to meet those Paralympic Standards as of this moment I’m writing this am I very close of meeting those Paralympic Standards. Each of my coaches, my pacers, and my personal I’m so thankful for to have them in my life. I’m currently 0.10 seconds off of the CP Paralympic standard for the 100 meters dash. I’m currently 15 seconds off of the CP Paralympic standard for the 200 meters dash. I’m 1.22 meters off of the CP Paralympic standard for the Shot Put. I’m currently 9 meters off the CP Paralympic standard for Discus. Running my last 5K (3.1 miles) road race I got a Personal Record by over 4 minutes.
I also have a personal trainer (Ryan) from (Whit Fit/Oompf Fit-Club) helping to increase my strength on both sides of my body. Helping me enhance my sprinting form. He has done the same thing with my Shot Put and Discus form. Having me practice these skills during every session. These sessions aren’t easy at all. But my favorite exercise is pulling the sled. As I’m writing this, the most weight I pulled on the sled is 315 lbs. My best pulling the sled while sprinting is 220 lbs. As of me writing this. Pulling the sled makes me so happy and my trainer knows it. But it’s super challenging especially since my Cerebral Palsy right side doesn’t work as well as my non-affected side in every exercise. Especially my Cerebral Palsy fingers because it’s hard to hold the grips on all of the machines that I have use special grips that I can hold on to while doing strength exercises. I have no control of my right fingers and my right toes due to my Cerebral Palsy right side while also using machines hard to use. My trainer has to do twice the amount of work trying to modify everything because of my Cerebral Palsy but he’s willing to do it for me to achieve my goals. Which he doesn’t have to do. Again he goes the extra mile which I’m thankful for.
I also play Field Hockey for (Long Island Field Hockey on their Field Hockey 4 All Team). That’s been an obstacle as well trying to figure out how to hold the Field Hockey stick with only my left arm because I can’t grip the Field Hockey stick with my right arm. Figuring out how to hold the stick, hit the ball, and run at the same time was a challenge to master. I’m grateful to my head coaches (Danielle and Mallory) for helping me to figure out how to play the game safely. I also have to wear my leg brace, my helmet, and a sports sling on my right arm since I can’t hold the stick, during practices and tournaments. I also made the National Disabled Program Field Hockey Team. I was shocked that I made the team. But I didn’t give up and neither did they.
Having relationships with everyone that I wrote about in these blogs have been there in the happy times in my life as well the dark times of life. They were all listening to me, and were willing to find a solution, all at the time being so supportive it’s not even funny. I know that no one of the people had to do that but they were happy to do it. I will have a relationship with them. I have no doubt they will do anything for me and that’s why they will have a special part in my heart. There’s no way I’ll ever be able to repay them. I’m so thankful and blessed beyond belief to have all of them in my life and will have a relationship with them for the rest of my life.
With 13 turns, the NASCAR Truck Series race in Mid Ohio, which is based after the O’Reilly Auto Parts 150, is expected to be challenging for all truck drivers. The first turn is the one immediately after the checkered line, therefore it requires driving all the way to The Keyhole at turn 2 before continuing on to turns 4 and 5, which are collectively referred to as the Beach. You don’t want to get stranded at the beach given that to the hefty turns and the hotspot for cautions, so avoid doing accordingly. The Esses are near to the Alternate S/F Line at turns 6 through 9, while Thunder Bay is at turns 10 and 11. The last two turns are the final two turns. Lastly for the final 2 turns is the Carousel which is the biggest risk for drivers to take the victory lap.
The race started off with a rain delay due to heavy downpours and the team had to wait for a while the race decided to line up the drivers to go around the lap just to test out the race track but it was too slippery to start the race. It took 20 minutes to drive around the track the official has the flag waved the green flag to start the race which was already a caution from Jake Garcia the #35. After the 1st caution at the 8th lap Tanney Gray the #15 was stuck in the mud. Short afterwards, Tanner Gray got into the beach at turn 4 but managed to drive through the dirt sand which didn’t have to release the caution flag. At the 15th Lap Carson Hocevar the #42 truck pushed Colby Howard the #9 truck into the mud at turn 5. More truck drivers has been getting caught at the beach and others had issues getting out of the mud. Zane Smith pushed Taylor Gray the 17 truck into the grass. In the meantime, Spencer Boyd the #12 truck blocked Conner Jones the #66 and got into the dirt which released the 4th caution with 2 laps to go and Ben Rhodes the #99 Truck and won the 1st stage.
When the 2nd Stage began, there was already a multi truck ruckus after the 2nd turn which the race continued while others drove to the grass. Eventually, Matt Crafton #88 pushed Lawless Alan the #45 truck at the Keyhole. Ben Rhodes and Ty Majeski and Zane Smith took over the Top 3 during most of the 2nd Stage. Corey Hiem decided to pass through Zane Smith with 5 laps to go. Hallie Deegan and Wayne Self were losing control and Self pushed Will Rodgers the #02 truck into the grass. Before the final lap, Hiem and Rhodes drove in the same speed and turned next to each others truck until Hiem gained speed to get extra boast to 2nd. Ty Majeski stayed in the lead and won the 2nd Stage. While battling for 6th Place, there was Steward Friesen #52, Tyler Ankrum #16, Matt DiBenedetto #25, and Rajah Caruth #24 which Friesen won the battle of the blue trucks.
At Stage 3, Daniel Dye #43 truck already got stuck in the dirt at turn 1. Ty Majeski pushed Ben Rhodes at turn 5 at the Beach but luckily neither of them were stuck and quickly went back into the race. Ty Majeski just had some tire problems after getting back on the race track. Moments later Jack Wood was stuck in the bit and demanded a forced caution and Rodgers was also stuck in the mud. After one back from the last caution, Brett Holmes #32 was stuck at the dirt on turn 1 and had trouble getting out which it’s the 6th accident and released the 8th caution. With 15 Laps left to go, Hiem and Smith took the front row to get the lead until Tanner Gray landed at the beach but survived to leave the dirt. Will Rodgers and Austin Wayne Self were stuck at the dirt at the Carousel for the 7th Accident. Within 10 Laps to go, there always another accident at the 1st turn and also debris on the race track which at first Taylor Gray #17 started traffic and caused a multi crash. Which means it’s the 8th accident for 10th caution. By the time there’s 5 laps to go, Corey Hiem was tight to Christian Eckes, Zane Smith, Matt Crafton and Tyler Ankrum in the Top 5 Drivers. Corey Heim stayed in the lead and Zane Smith stay a second behind during the final 3 laps and Corey Hiem has won the O’Reilly Auto Parts 150. Corey Hiem has got his 2nd win of the Season since Martinsville on the 14 of April. It was also Corey Hiem’s Birthday Weekend Victory which it worked out perfectly for his unforgettable performance for the win.
This past week, the crew at Autisticana visited Spencer’s at the Smithtown Mall. The store is very interesting because it has shirts and clothing based on popular movies, anime, and musicians. It also has paraphernalia relating to weed, occultism, and magic, sex toys, and candy. They even sell manga and cookbooks. We all took pictures relating to our interests there.
In 1947, Spencer’s started off in Easton, PA, as a mail-order catalog with tons of novelty merch by Max Adler and his brother Harry, the namesake being the former’s middle name Spencer. In 1963, three years after Harry left, Spencer evolved into a brick-and-mortar retail store with its first location in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, at the city’s mall. Since then, Spencer has grown to 650 locations in the US, and Canada within malls, especially on Long Island, such as Hicksville Broadway.
In 2001, Spencer’s Gifts launched its e-commerce website, allowing customers to shop for its products online. The website has become important to the company’s sales and marketing strategy.
Today, Spencer’s operates over 600 stores in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, offering a wide range of products, including clothing, accessories, home decor, and novelty items. The company is known for its edgy and irreverent products and is known for catering to a younger, more alternative demographic.
Despite competing with other retailers in the same space, Spencer’s has continued to grow and expand its business. With a focus on innovation, creativity, and customer engagement, the company has stayed relevant and popular with its target audience.
Spencer’s has been a must for the newest trends, tees, body jewelry, home décor and more that celebrate our slogan “life is a party”and we are making it fun. Known for being a pioneer in sexual wellness, call us what you want, but we are here for all communities to celebrate. We are committed to our guests’ uniqueness and their desire for rebellious, buzzworthy products that represent a unique lifestyle while offering an escape from the ordinary.
Spencer’s had opened in 2003 under new management, raising the bar and continuing its untraditional retail journey. The stores have changed, but when they set out on the path of becoming an industry leader in a subtle shift from Spencer Gifts to Spencer’s, this will always be true to the roots of their love for the pride of the effort they put.
They have done a new and better look, but never forgot the history because some of the trends are as old as time. Spencer’s, which continues to lead the market with one of the oldest continually operating stores in North America and nearly 670 locations throughout the United States and Canada, proudly enshrines the brand as cultural staples. Giving back is a key obligation of Spencer’s, and we have been increasing the commitment over the last few years.
Since 2020, the whole partnership with the ACLU has generated nearly a million dollars to help protect civil rights for individuals. Additionally, since 2008 our associates have been fierce advocates, joining in on the battle against cancer by fundraising on behalf of three organizations focused on fighting youth cancer through the non-profit Boobies Make Me Smile. They’ve raised more than 10,5 million dollars to support the Young Survival Consortium, Stupid Cancer and Fxck Cancer that are working on prevention, education and help for young people with cancer and showing the reality of helping young women that could possibly have breast cancer and knowing the facts of the support they need when their going through tough times.
Everyone takes on Spencer’s:
Scott likes that Spencer’s has cool stuff, especially sex products.
Danielle didn’t care for Spencer’s Costumes
Jackson loved Spencer’s having been at that location and Hicksville’s multiple times. He loved taking the Stepbrothers photo with Scott:

Japan, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Spain, Denmark.
The viewership overseas, our goal is to increase viewership around the world to see our genius ideas of our brilliant minds which we want to expand viewership around the globe outside of the United States which it’s based on Long Island. During our first 2 years we had top 10 viewership from the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Australia, China, Ecuador, India, South Africa, Germany, Pakinstain
I think in some countries that get resources and most international cities are very friendly that they can use transportation from anywhere since they most don’t drive a car like most of Europe has a great resource of walking places and town centre’s because it was the oldest landmarks of buildings in the world where everything is close which sadly most of the western countries had some access.
The resources have extended media attention in recent years Since DLA is a non-diagnosis specific benefit, having an autism diagnosis does not guarantee eligibility; however, many kids on the autism spectrum do. Additionally, there is no means testing involved, so your income and savings are not taken into consideration.
Some countries has great Support services while others doesn’t have the best system because it depends of the government and legislatives of each country.

The Battle of the Bridge, is occasionally referred to as the Sydney Derby. It is based on a local Australian Football League (AFL) derby game between two Sydney-based clubs. The Sydney Swans and the Greater Western Sydney Giants are the two teams in Sydney, New South Wales. Since 2012, both of these teams have played against one another. Additionally, the Brett Kirk Medal is awarded at the conclusion of every match during the course of the regular season.
Despite the fact that it was the Sydney Derby on a dreary Saturday afternoon with a few passing rains, it was also Toby Bedford’s debut for the GWS Giants, for whom he had previously played for the Melbourne Demons. It was another welcoming moment for the Giants, who were pleased to add additional talent as the young players were ready to make a move and join the elite group of players. It was also Adam Kingsley’s first Sydney Derby as the GWS Giants’ head coach, while John Longmire has been the senior coach of the Sydney Swans since 2011 and has witnessed every Battle of the Bridge Derby since the GWS Giants began playing in the Australian Premiership Football League, which has been 10 years of the battle, which will now be 11 during the 2023 Season as upon the chapter of the two Sydney Rival Teams. It was the 25th meeting of the Sydney Derby, which meant there would be some exciting and exhilarating moments for both teams as they contended for the best team of the competition.
When the Sydney Derby’s first quarter began, both teams engaged in some pushing, contacting, and ruffing before beginning the clearance. Toby Greene threw the ball inside the 50-metre line to Toby Bedford, who scored his first goal for the Giants, putting them ahead early. On his GWS debut, Toby Bedford scores the game’s first goal, which comes from a turnover. The Swans earned a rushed behind, and Toby Greene scored to retake the lead. To prevent any risk, Tom Papley got himself a behind and kicked it in the ground. Peter Ladhams sneaks inside the 50-yard line and booted to score, much to the delight of Swans fans.Jesse Hogan blasted a goal from within the 30-meter box, that in the end caused the Giants to for a rushed behind. When Callan Ward kicked the footy to Greene, it bounced in the goal square but was blocked by the Swans defense, so Greene passed it to Brent Daniels, who actually passed it to Harry Perryman, who finished the job with a goal. Will Hayward also scores for Swans, reducing the deficit to 11 points, with Luke Parker assisting.

While Luke Parker had the ball following an immediate clearance advantage and kicked the ball into the center square, Will Hayward caught the ball and did not include apprehensive of dropping it for an easy catch for a huge grab. Both teams continued to push and battle, and Hayward ultimately scored a goal for the Swans, making the game even more exciting.

Toby Greene, on the other hand, received the ball and dropped it to Hayward, who fumbled to the Swans, which Matt Flynn defended, allowing the Giants to have the ball to Conilgo and Bedford, who gave an insignificant flip to Grenne, who did a dive and finally scored. James Peatling scored on a behind to send the match to halftime despite the Giants throughout the process of taking the lead 9.7 (57) to 7.5 (47).
As soon as the third quarter began, the Swans took control and Franklin kicked the ball to get the score. Franklin followed by passing the ball to Hayward at a Centering Kick, which Errol Gulden caught by the goal square and gave the Swans a commanding lead for the very first time in the remainder of the game. The Swans maintained their lead with a behind from Franklin, another goal from Hayward, and a rushed behind from Issac Heaney. The Giants ultimately achieved something miraculous when Callum Brown kicked it in the Centre Square with a long range pass to Callaghan and dropped the footy to Conligio with the spin inside the 50 metre and launched it and bounced it all the way to the goal square to count it out as a goal, leaving the Giants lost for words. The Swans attempted another goal, which was prevented by the defense, so Gulden sprinted beyond the 50-metre line to kick it back to Logan McDonald, who saved it on his knees and was able to jump up and score for the Swans. McDonald was able to score another goal, and Franklin quickly followed a behind. While the Giants had alternative strategies, Cadman kicked it to Himmelberg, who plucked it and saved to take the mark before enacting to Hogan, who succeeded to save the footy at the goal square after his second catch, allowing the Giants to get an infinite goal. While Coniglio cleared it to Hogan, he took an instantaneous drop and handed it to Brent Daniels, who was able to score from the 50-metre line.

The Swans start the final quarter strongly, scoring two goals, one of which was a centre bounce. When Josh Kelly snatched the ball, he carried it out of the center square and kicked it to Harry Himmelberg into the metre circle, where he scored from a 40-metre range but had enough space for a simple goal. The Giants possessed plenty of time to catch up to the Swans since the game was still underway in the Final Quarter. When Heeney had the ball, he passed it to Paley, who kicked it to Marc Sheather, who almost seized the ball but somehow went high in the air, so Harry Rawston almost intercepted the footy, but Chad Warner kicked the ball for a screamer goal out of nowhere. The Swans remained dominant for the majority of the second half of the Sydney Derby, pushing the Giants to find a staggery in order to get closer in addition to win. Rowston swiftly passed it to Coniglio inside the centre square and kicked it to O’ Halloran, but it was quickly intercepted by Toby Greene, who kept the ball in the ground until the whistle sounded. Bedford had the opportunity, but it was too early to call it, but they tried it again with the clearance, and Hogan kicked a low ball by rolling it towards Jake Riccardi, but threw it to Toby Greene, who kicked it into the goal like a soccer ball, providing the Giants some hope. Toby Greene scores his third goal of the match, cutting the deficit to 17 points. He played a part to eight goals and all three of his inside 50s have resulted in goals. Coniglio dropped the ball from the defense and allowed it roll in the direction of Harry Perryman who kicked the goal and slide which he was able to accomplish before the two defensemen slip to dive which the Swans had failed to capitalize on in time. Tom Greene booted long enough for Toby Greene outside the 50 metre line, who let the ball float through the goal zone until Brent Daniels tried to receive it at the skip bounce but was unable to get the ball in time, resulting in a behind. There has been some teamwork in every passing move of the Giants that gives to footy from Callum Brown and Jack Buckley for the steal which somehow pass it to Brent Daniels but converts it to Josh Kelly and gives an immediate pass to James Peatling which shifts it to Tom Green and pass it to Harry Rowston but kicks it and dropped in the 25 metre which Toby Greene held it and stop the play. Harry Himmelberg eventually received the ball on the following play, but he booted it on to the right side of the goal to escape the traffic with a behind. The Giants were behind 95-105 with seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, but there was still time for a comeback. When Haynes took the back pocket to stop the ball, he ultimately kicked it from long distance to Harry Perryman, and Nick Blankey tried to defend it, but Perryman ran but dropped it, so Toby Bedford and Toby Greene collaborated up to have the ball, and Greene kicked it back to Perryman, who landed inside the 50 metre line. He took the kick at the 50-metre line and sailed it ahead for the Giants to receive the winning opportunity, which he converted with his second goal of the quarter, bringing his game total to three. This increases the lead to four points. The game was last led by GWS in the first few minutes of the third quarter. With only 5 minutes remaining, the Swans are seeking assistance in order to secure their victory by maintaining their lead. Parker booted a long distance to Lance Franklin but failed to convert it, then Will Hayward performed a rapid roll to Corey Warner, who kicked to the goal line but McDonald was unable to receive it in time, resulting in a behind. The Giants conducted an excellent job guarding the Swans, prevented them from getting the game-winning goal with several passes from the line of defense while maintaining the game competitive.

The Hudson Valley is experiencing gentrification as wealthy New Yorkers invest in local real estate and use Airbnb to experience the upstate lifestyle. This is leading to neighborhood conflicts and affordability issues. Efforts are underway to combat gentrification, including using land banks and community land trusts to move low- and middle-income residents from renting to homeowning. A 2017 study found that community land trusts help reduce gentrification’s effects by slowing displacement and keeping neighborhoods affordable. Several Hudson Valley cities are exploring using land trusts to combat gentrification. The media’s coverage of the region has also played a part in this phenomenon, with the New York Times promoting the business efforts of transplants and encouraging pioneers to take advantage of urban decay. The quest for radical community, whether driven by religion, politics, or art, has often been depicted as requiring a literal journey from the city to the countryside. Adrian Shirk’s book Heaven is a Place on Earth: Searching for an American Utopia explores the history of intentional communities in rural America, such as the Bruderhof community and Gate Hill Cooperative. However, Shirk’s search for a more communal life unintentionally illuminates rural gentrification, the migration of affluent urbanites and suburbanites to the country, which is often under-recognized. Shirk’s desire to not work as much and be around like-minded people led her to seek a more communal lifestyle. n Adrian Shirk’s book, she notes that rural living is not her first choice. While she dreams of moving upstate, her ideal commune does not require a view of nature but a cooperatively owned apartment building in an outer borough. However, Shirk admits that this scenario would lead to gentrification, so instead, she moves upstate where it is more affordable and doesn’t count as gentrification.
The article discusses how gentrification is not just limited to cities but can also happen in rural areas. The author notes that the protagonist of the article, who moved upstate, is hesitant to acknowledge that her migration could contribute to gentrification. She fails to see the divide between high-end businesses and more traditional local spots when she is upstate. The article discusses the issue of gentrification in Newburgh, New York, and how it affects long-time residents and small business owners. Many are concerned about being priced out of the area as development continues and property values rise. This has led to tensions and anger in the community. Still, some are working towards solutions by inviting housing activists and neighbors to discuss including local people in the city’s success. There is also a recognition that it will take the entire community to work together to address the issue and prevent displacement. Similar challenges are being faced in other communities, including Rochester and Buffalo. Other communities, including Rochester, Buffalo, and Hudson, are also facing the issue, where property values are rising rapidly. Ward 2 Councilwoman Ramona Monteverde emphasizes the need for housing activists and small business owners to work together to prevent displacement and fight for laws and policies that benefit the local community. She plans to hold community meetings to discuss possible solutions to the problem. The article details a three-part series of dialogues and conversations called “Gentrification is Colonialism,” hosted by the Forge Project, a Native-led arts and decolonial education initiative based in Ancram. The series aims to explore the historical roots of gentrification in the displacement and genocide of Indigenous people, particularly in the Hudson River Valley, and to offer ways to counter its effects. Each panel, moderated by a local artist or organizer, will feature local activists and an Indigenous activist, architect, artist, or scholar in dialogue. The series is free and open to the public, and pre-registration is appreciated. The first panel, “Anti-Institutions and Indigenous Liberation,” will explore Indigenous models of refusal, resistance, and organizing with art and gentrification.
Before the middle of the 20th century, Albany’s downtown neighborhoods were predominantly white, with large populations of Italian, Irish, and German immigrants. These areas, including the South End, Arbor Hill, and West Hill, were initially redlined in the 1930s as risky for investment by banks and realtors. At this time, these neighborhoods had few Black residents, while the majority of residents were foreign-born European immigrants. However, with the second wave of the Great Migration in the 1950s, the Black population grew rapidly every decade, reaching 16% in 1980. While the descendants of European immigrants were able to assimilate and buy homes or rent apartments anywhere in the city, this was not the case for Black residents, who were locked out of many neighborhoods due to discriminatory practices and policies. The neighborhoods in Albany, New York, were redlined in the past, leading to distinct borders that particularly affected Black residents, with socioeconomic differences stuck in certain parts of the city. Black residents knew not to cross certain borders and experienced police harassment when walking through white neighborhoods. Moving to the suburbs, the neighborhoods in Albany, New York, were redlined in the past, leading to distinct borders that particularly affected Black residents, with socioeconomic differences stuck in certain parts of the city. Black residents knew not to cross certain borders and experienced police harassment when walking through white neighborhoods. Moving to the suburbs. Albany’s Black population faced racist roadblocks that limited their access to suburbs like Colonie. These roadblocks included exorbitantly high rents or harassment from white neighbors. Black residents often worked low-paying jobs that didn’t allow them the capital needed for homeownership, leading many families to stay in the South End for decades.
As the Black population grew, white flight caused the suburbs’ populations to boom while Albany’s population decreased. The suburbs offered little incentive for Black residents to leave Albany due to their overwhelmingly white demographics, and many who did move faced racism. Albany’s Black population growth coincided with white flight to the suburbs, causing a significant drop in the city’s overall population. The demographic shift in neighborhoods like West Hill was also partially influenced by public initiatives, such as school integration and public housing projects. The construction of Bleecker Terrace Apartments in the 1980s, which was public housing, co-integrated West Hill in a way it had not been integrated before, causing some white residents to be displeased. Before this development, West Hill was a predominantly white, working-class neighborhood.
Between 1950 and 1980, Albany’s population decreased while suburbs like Colonie, Guilderland, and Bethlehem saw significant population increases. Colonie, in particular, became a popular destination for those looking to escape the city. However, because the suburbs were so predominantly white, there was often little incentive for Black residents to move there. For those who did, racism and harassment were common. Jasmine Higgins’ great-grandfather, a prominent Albany attorney, had his house in the predominantly white Buckingham Lake neighborhood burn down in a racially motivated incident. Jim Bouldin, one of the first Black families to move to Colonie in 1976, experienced racism and harassment from white neighbors and ultimately moved back to Albany, where he bought a brownstone in Arbor Hill. The South Mall project in Albany, now known as the Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza, displaced around 7,000 residents in 1963, including an estimated 1,000 Black residents. The displacement had unequal ramifications for Black and White residents, with displaced white residents fleeing to the suburbs while many Black residents remained in inner-city neighborhoods. The government’s response to the displacement was to build three public housing projects, one placed near an industrial zone, which tends to lower residents’ quality of life and physical health and exacerbate segregation.

During the construction of the South Mall in Albany, the city’s Democratic machine controlled governance and citizens’ lives. The machine saturated the city with jobs, tax breaks, and support for loyalists who tended to be white and Catholic. When white residents fled to the suburbs, they sold their houses to landlords who then housed Black tenants in buildings that were in terrible conditions, prompting civil rights groups to demand the city to crack down on slumlords. A series by journalist William Kennedy in the Times Union exposed these conditions, but some critics blamed residents for their living situations, leading the paper’s editorial board to mollify them by stating that they did not mean to sympathize with those who chose to live in filth.

Central New York
In the past few years, the downtown core has improved significantly, which can be partially attributed to the construction of student housing projects, resulting in a few thousand students in the middle of downtown. There are also some good breweries, bars, restaurants, and stores that are not overrun by college students. Utica is a city in New York dubbed the “second-chance city” and the “city with a warm heart” due to its openness and support for refugees. However, integrating refugees into the community has proven challenging, as many are employed in low-wage, night-shift jobs with limited opportunities for advancement. While the city is optimistic about the return of manufacturing jobs to the area, it’s unlikely that refugees will be able to take advantage of these new positions due to their lack of formal education. Otisco Street, located in the Salt District of the Near Westside, was once a dilapidated, lifeless street with broken windows and graffiti. However, a group, including Syracuse University, The Gifford Foundation, and Home HeadQuarters, worked together to create the Near Westside Initiative to revitalize the area. Today, Otisco Street is home to a diverse group of individuals, including a family, artists, architects, educators, and social workers dedicated to changing the neighborhood from the inside out. Despite the challenges, these settlers were drawn to the area by the opportunity to make a positive impact and affordable homes, some costing only $1.
As part of Syracuse’s ambitious $800 million plan, the affordable housing complexes underneath Interstate 81 will be transformed with a new neighborhood where low-income people can live next to those who pay the average rent in the city. It will also mark the end of the oldest public housing in the state, an assortment of gated-off condominiums built with institutional brick that were constructed in 1938 just south of Syracuse. City planners are anticipated to request the first $50 million from the federal government in the form of grants to review the ideas. They are looking for doctors who can walk up the hill to work to live in the same neighborhoods as those who take the bus to minimum-wage jobs in nursing homes and retail establishments. Depressing blocks of apartment buildings in Syracuse’s most severe neighborhoodswould be replaced by modern, colorful townhomes and multi-story structures with high-end appliances along tree-lined, walkable walkways. There would be no more enclosed courtyard parking lots attracting behavior that is antisocial Parks on every unit, a grocery store, communal gardens, better educational institutions, and more opportunities for employment can be all on the agenda. They hope that the people who ride the bus to work at nursing homes and retail stores will be able to live in the same houses as doctors who can walk up the hill to work. They want doctors who can walk up the hill to work and live in the same neighborhoods as those who ride the bus to laborers employment opportunities such asnursing homes and retail shops.
They are ready to hand a plan to the state and federal government at the same time there is political will to lift a neighborhood suffering from every ill of concentrated poverty. They expect there will be millions of state and federal dollars available as part of the I-81 rebuild and federal spending on infrastructure. The government erected a highway overpass through the Black area known as the “15th Ward” in the 1950s and 1960s, tearing it apart. Now that the highway has outlived its useful life, the government officials have pledged to rebuild it in a way that makes amends for previous mistakes. Blueprint 15 is a non-profit entrusted with reinventing the area. The nonprofit was established by the city of Syracuse, the Syracuse Housing Authority, and the Allyn Foundation, which is fighting poverty using revenues from the sale of Welch Allyn. They are prepared to present a strategy to the state and federal governments at the same time that there is political will to lift a neighborhood suffering from every ill associated with concentrated poverty. In Syracuse, planners have spent ten years anticipating directives from the top down. However, the 4,000 people who reside there are quite concerned about the reconstruction. The housing authority has promised, and the federal government requires, to ensure it will provide a new apartment to each person who currently resides there. Some residents are pleased with the adjustment. Others have apprehension of getting evicted from their residences and lacking companions they rely on. “I know it will be different, entirely different, and I apologize. “I’m sad,” Alice Daigle, who has lived in Pioneer Homes for 40 years, said. Residents pushed for themselves and city planners around the country to ensure the project has been finished with dignity. The structures of being, according to Walsh, “have failed the citizens every occasion the city of Syracuse has had to pursue a substantial development opportunity that incorporates older, affordable housing.” So, history is not on our side. They are correct to be skeptical until we demonstrate that we can accomplish it in a different way.
Rochester (Port Charles)
These days, urban regeneration is a major subject. Most people would characterize it as an increase in rent costs, the influx of upscale eateries and nutritional food shops, an increase in young professionals or “hipsters,” as well as the destruction of older homes and structural features to make room for opulent condominiums. In actuality, it happens when individuals with higher incomes start coming into low-income communities and drive away the existing residents because of the greater cost of living the wealthier newcomers bring. A affluent white population may frequently do this by evicting impoverished black and brown communities from the neighborhoods in which they have long resided. It has happened in several well-known places, including Portland, Oregon, and Los Angeles, California. This has been taking place in Rochester, New York, gradually but certainly.
With the growth of new structures in inner city East Ave, Center City, and other formerly low-income districts, this has been slowly but surely occurring in Rochester, New York. The development of gentrification will be mapped out and investigated using open source data and arcGIS, demonstrating the expulsion of low-income and minority groups from their areas. Redlining, a tactic banks adopted in the middle of the 20th century to control where people of color might live, has origins in gentrification. They were forced to live in “declining and degrading” communities, while loans to “nicer” places were denied. Moreover, small company loans were typically not available in these areas, which prevented individuals of color from enjoying financial stability. The map on the left depicts this. Each neighborhood received a grade, ranging from “Excellent” to “Hazardous,” ranging from A to D. The red and yellow regions on this map demonstrate how generally speaking, central city was “dangerous” and “certainly decreasing.” Given the lack of dedicated resources to “declining” neighborhoods and employers’ preference for locations in nicer neighborhoods, it’s only natural that these neighborhoods have continued to decline. Despite being outlawed in the 1960s, redlining still has a significant impact today. The proportion of each Rochester neighborhood’s population who lived in poverty in 2014 is depicted on the right-hand map, with darker red denoting a greater percentage and the deepest green denoting 0%.
The red and yellow areas from the redlining map are mostly located in the same regions as the darker red sections. By comparing these maps, these data demonstrate that minority populations typically reside in these even impoverished locations. Gentrification has increased in Rochester in recent years, commencing with the construction of high-end residences. New building is being built all throughout the city, and East Avenue’s inner-city section has recently undergone a comprehensive renovation. As an illustration, the old Rochester Subway entrance is being covered by the Nathaniel luxury apartment building, transforming the historic monument into a parking lot. Even though this process has already started, many people in Rochester are actively trying to stop it. Gentrification isn’t always a terrible phenomenon, and its displacing effects may be stopped through creative solutions, wise public
In order to connect its downtown to some of its at-risk communities, Rochester has started planning to fill the northeastern section of its Inner Loop freeway and rehabilitate approximately 1.5 miles of land. The expressway was constructed, according to a spokeswoman for the city of Rochester, “to divert white people who come downtown away from Black people.” The Inner Loop freeway inside the city’s north is being rebuilt in an effort to restore equality to the areas that, according to local authorities, were mistreated when the highway was built three generations ago. The remaining Loop might be filled in during a ten-year period. Although the project’s strategy has been approved, dispute still exists over what lies beyond the Central Boulevard that will be built in its place. Policy, and community pride. How can a society assist its members regardless of their financial level rather than favoring the wealthier ones? A pricey cereal bar restaurant can appear hip and fashionable, but a neighborhood community center can foster relationships among residents while costing next to nothing to use. The city of Rochester has to look into these patterns, aggressively develop policies to help the communities who are being uprooted, and make sure that all areas are open to people of all races and socioeconomic backgrounds. Its obvious that the phase-one project that reconstructed three-eights of a mile of the loop from behind the Strong National Museum of Play to just shy of University Avenue is not the same as Inner Loop North. Less direct neighborhood connections and more room for mixed-use development along Union Street were features of the three-eighths-mile project. The Inner Loop’s first phase served as a “proof of concept” project, demonstrating how elevating an urban roadway might create the possibility of linking communities. Phase two will aim to finish the final mile and a half of the road. This project’s size is four times greater than Inner Loop East’s. Parks, homes with green spaces, and other projects beneficial to local business are being explored. The additional neighbors who will live closer to the project’s transformation, which it would be satisfied for the major changes. The Expressway extensions have been reclassified as a contributing factor in the deterioration of neglected urban communities. Constructed to convey trade when they first appeared, they are today seen as discriminatory public works from a time when officials did not take their influence into consideration, much more like redlining. Residents of Rochester, however, are concerned that gentrification will follow this attempt to make things right as the Inner Loop is filled in. The city of Rochester has to look into these patterns, proactively develop policies to help the communities who are being uprooted, and make sure that all areas are friendly to people from all racial backgrounds, socioeconomic levels, and walks of life.
Residents of Buffalo and community-based groups have been raising awareness of gentrification’s detrimental effects on communities of color, low-income families, and working-class families, who make up the bulk of the city, for nearly a decade now. The city of Buffalo’s official response when the warning was initially raised was “not yet.” Alarmists were those who raised worry. Since then, in one of the most segregated and impoverished mid-sized towns in the nation, Buffalo—where more than a quarter of the population is impoverished, gentrification and displacement have become the norm. Over the recent years, rents have been steadily rising, and evictions, according to media reports, had also increased dramatically. Many tenants are being evicted by landlords in Erie County, notably in Buffalo, than in any other part of the state, including the boroughs of New York City. More than 55% of East Side tenants, as according Henry Louis Taylor’s research at the University at Buffalo, spend 30% or more of their income on housing, with more than a third paying 50% or more alone on rent. These figures and the uprooting of communities of color as well as those with lower incomes have become far too typical in America. Yet the City of Buffalo still lacks a comprehensive development strategy that would foster a just, equal, and inclusive city, based on efficient anti-displacement techniques and legislative action that gives Buffalo residents priority over property speculators and out-of-town investors. A Buffalo Tenant Bill of Rights was created by organizations in collaboration with those whose lives were directly impacted in order to redress the disparity in power between renters and landlords.
On Allen Street, Buffalo went ahead and altered the name of a neighborhood to reflect the name of its great quarterback Josh Allen as it destroyed the AFC East and advanced to the AFC Championship Game. “Welcome to Josh Allentown Buffalo’s Wonderful Historic Neighborhood,” said a sign near the intersection of Allen Street and Main Street. From Elmwood Avenue to west of Mariner Street, Allen Street has been COMPLETELY CLOSED to traffic. Traffic is being diverted along College Street to Maryland Street through a sign-posted diversion. Please adhere to the 30 mph city speed limit. The new 24″ watermain and new copper pipes are now connected to all water services for buildings on Allen Street. To take in the sights and sounds were Allen and Elmwood. Of course, this is one of the neighborhood’s busiest junctions. Living in Allentown has provided an opportunity for me to live a car-free life. It was a walkable city in their definition is regarded as a walker’s paradise due to the near proximity of shops, companies, hospitals, and other necessities. Indeed, there seem to be stores, bars, restaurants, art galleries, included a bicycle shop, Rick Cycle, the oldest in the city having opened its doors in 1898. Within a short stroll are the Theater of Youth, housed in the former Allendale Theater, the magnificently inspiring Symphony Circle, one of many Buffalo circles created by Frederick Law Olmsted, the site of the renowned Kleinhans Music Hall (home to the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra), and the venerable First Presbyterian Church. A short stroll or bike ride will take you to Downtown Buffalo and The Elmwood Village, along with everything they have to offer. Additionally, the UB School of Medicine and the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. The land’s initial owner, James Falley Allen, is the origin of the name Allentown. It’s believed that the neighborhood’s principal street, Allen Street, was formerly a cow trail. The city quickly expanded northward when Allen sold the land, taking up the streets that are today part of Allentown. Three urban parks can be found in Allentown: Days Park, which was created in 1887 and is named after Thomas Day, who donated the land to the city in 1854; Arlington Park, where Frederick Law Olmsted resided while creating Buffalo’s extensive park system; and Sisti Park, which is the smallest of the three and is located at the intersection of North, Franklin, and Linwood. It is named for Anthony (Tony) Sisti, a boxer and artist who was raised and educated in Greenwich Village and kept a studio nearby. Many people attribute Sisti’s role in making the arts synonymous with the area. He also helped create the Allentown Art Festival, and the Buffalo AKG Art Museum has some of his pieces on display. I
The city’s area code, 716, serves as a shorthand for a place that is rich in culture, sports, and positive attitude. Buffalo’s residents are also strongly linked to one another; it’s a running joke that, as opposed to the usual “six degrees of separation,” there are sometimes only one or two degrees separating us here. There are several linkages between the people in the profiles that follow and what they do in the community.
Buffalo, New York’s second-largest city, boasts a diversified population of more than a quarter-million people, including longtime Buffalonians, returned ex-pats, refugees, university students who stayed beyond graduation, and others searching for a comfortable — and inexpensive — metropolitan location to call home. The drive for change in East Buffalo is not new; nonetheless, the city is aiming to “accelerate development and job creation in Buffalo,” according to Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown. Leaders hope to accomplish this by constructing more housing, yet some claim that such an approach isn’t the best solution. “We do not require more housing; we need to fix up the houses we already have,” one Buffalo resident adds, going on to state, “fix up the neighborhood; fix the streets; clean up the neighborhood.” Everyone understands that we require more than one food shop.” According to Mayor Byron Brown, the city is expecting dozens of development projects in 2022, with a total expenditure of $9 billion in private and public funding since 2012. The majority of the money is sent toward Eastern and Western parts of Buffalo.
New York State used to have settlers from Europe like England, Ireland, Scotland and the Netherlands that used to take over the colonists of Upstate New York and make these major towns into a historic landscape but the didn’t last when the late 20th century took down business and collapse of industry businesses in the 1970s and had more people leaving the cities because it was getting rundown. By the 21st Century, Some of ht most Iconic regions of New York had some major renovation to make more people come back to those Iconic cities and make a greener New York and take down the outdated buildings and added brand new apartments and shops for high quality lifestyle. It also wanted to keep the historic houses but rather renovate the inside and keep the outside for people who love the memory of historic houses.
New York State used to have settlers from Europe such as England, Ireland, Scotland, and the Netherlands who made an effort to take over the colonists of the upstate region of New York and turn these major towns into a historic landscape. New York’s history began approximately 10,000 B.C., when the first people arrived. By 1100 A.D., two major cultures had emerged as the Iroquoian and Algonquian evolved. The Italian Giovanni da Verrazzano led the European discovery of New York in 1524, followed by the Dutch’s initial land claim in 1609. The area was once home of the origin of the Native Americans until the European Settlers took over the area. The colony was vital in the fur trade as part of New Netherland and subsequently became an agricultural resource because to the patroon system. In the 1600s, England christened the colony New York after the Duke of York and Albany, port city in the 18th century major trading port in the Thirteen Colonies. Shipping has been crucial to Albany’s growth and success ever since it established a trade station in 1614. While European people and goods were imported, the main exports were furs, particularly beaver fur, timber, and agricultural products. Albany became a city under the Dongan Charter, which also designated it as the sole market town in the upper Hudson River Valley. The port’s initial structure was made up of hurriedly constructed docks that were devastated each winter by ice, erosion, floods, and tidal action. In 1766, the primary set of three docks owned by the city was built; the southern and northern docks were eventually developed into wharves. The Port of Albany-Rensselaer, occasionally referred to as the Port of Albany, is a seaport of entry in the United States having facilities at both Albany and Rensselaer, both in New York, on each side of the Hudson River. Since the 17th century, both cities have had private and public port facilities, and after the Albany Basin and Erie Canal were constructed using public funds in 1825 shipping increased. Jesuit missionaries described salty saline springs on the southern end of what is now known as Onondaga Lake in honor of the illustrious tribe and was called as “Salt Lake” in their reports. The Iroquois began trading with French fur traders in the New York region. English and Dutch colonists both exchanged, and the English officially claimed the region from their headquarters in upstate New York at Albany. The extremely decentralized Iroquois split up into two tribes that backed the American-born patriots and groupings and bands that supported the British during the American Revolutionary War. Following the American Revolutionary War, various treaties with Native American tribes, and land sales by these groups, settlers moved into central and western New York from the eastern parts of the state and New England. Commercial salt production was made possible thanks to the state of New York’s later designation of this region as the Onondaga Salt Springs Reservation. From the late 1700s to the early 1900s, such production occurred. In the 19th century, brine was created from wells that tapped into halite (common salt) layers in the Salina shale in Tully, New York, 15 miles south of the city. The “salty springs” along the Onondaga Lake shoreline get their salt from the north-flowing brine from Tully. This region was known as “The Salt City” because of the industry’s explosive growth in the 18th and 19th centuries. Following the American Revolution, the Iroquois were compelled to cede their territory to Rochester after Britain was defeated. Four significant Iroquois tribes were driven out of New York after embracing the British. They received a sizable land grant on the Grand River in Canada as payment for their loyalty to the British throne. A wave of English-Puritan immigrants from New England who were eager for new agricultural land created Rochester soon after the American Revolution. For more than a century, they dominated Rochester’s cultural landscape. The Paleo-Indians, who were nomadic and lived in the area before the 17th century, were replaced by the Neutral, Erie, and Iroquois peoples. The French started looking into the area around the beginning of the 17th century. A tiny settlement was built at the headwaters of Buffalo Creek in the 18th century when Iroquois territory surrounding it was donated as part of the Holland territory Purchase. The area was sparsely inhabited and residence to the agricultural Erie people in the south and the Wenrohronon (Wenro) of the Neutral Nation in the north during French discovery of the area in 1620. Tobacco and hemp were grown by the Neutral for commerce with the Iroquois, who exchanged furs for European goods with the French.
It didn’t last when the late 20th century took down business and the demise of industry businesses in the 1970s and had more people leaving the cities because it was getting rundown. By the twenty-first century, some of New York’s most recognizable regions had undergone significant improvements in order to entice more people to return to those legendary cities and create a more environmentally friendly New York by demolishing outdated structures and introducing brand new apartments and shops for a high-quality lifestyle. People would like to see certain modifications that would allow New York to continue to preserve its historical attractions while simultaneously renovating the surrounding area in order to make the historic landmarks, which might involve those in New York State University cities, look vibrant and something novel. Regardless of your age or objectives, it’s worthwhile spending time in New York’s college towns because these cities are surrounded by stunning countryside and have vibrant main streets. From the Hudson Valley and the vast regions of North Country, the appeal of New York State is evident in every corner and crevice. Many of the state’s college towns are teeming with eateries, shops, and cultural institutions but are only a short drive from the natural environment. Here are the top five charming towns in the state. Students who wish to experience the moment of strolling through the historical housing complex will find themselves through a transitional time.They develop lifelong friendships and get important knowledge that will prepare them for their future careers.
Today I’ll be talking about why I think animation actually counts as another fantastic form of art
First of all, animation has become such a big part of not just in the art community and industry but also in the film industry because animators and filmmakers (for example Disney, Pixar, etc) work put so many details in them and work so hard on them since nothing blows up overnight and everything takes time and they deserve to get paid as much as everyone else.
As someone who grew up watching lots of animated movies/shows/specials in my childhood and teens till currently now in my adulthood, has an artistic eye, and is now kinda an artist since I had and still have an appreciation for that stuff gave me so much inspiration over the years. However, I do have mixed opinions about the whole current live-action and remake thing which I will probably talk about at another time if you want my intake on them or even talk about/rank them let me know in the comments or my socials.
Another thing I love about it is not just the details and creativity but that it takes you to a different place/scenery to explore a world you want to see outside of your world for a while. and gets your mind off of (your reality) for a long time however how long it is. After watching I wondered how they made it and the process so I looked up. I found out that they stretch out their ideas on regular/illustration paper, then draw them out, color, blend, then test them out on the computer, work it on there, show it to other artists/others, and put it together which is pretty amazing if you ask me. I think anyone can do it or be artistic without being born naturally.
After doing all of the illustrations I did for David’s book not sure if you remember my posts/blogs about it which will also be out soon along with my own and everyone else’s who did a book I had to do so many steps and took so much time than I expected to be but I’m glad I took my time since it worked out well in the end. If you want to be a good artist/instructor/animator/filmmaker or whatever you need to practice as many times as you need to, take your time, find your style, and take other’s feedback/criticism. If you don’t you’ll never get the hang of it.
I hope this video helps explain animation and how it works if you are curious and interested
If you enjoyed this and learned something great and important let me know in the comments or in my socials have a great day.
