Adult Animated Video: ‘Twillerama’ festival is a dirty hit

“I didn’t expect to literally walk into some of my all time favorites in the independent animation scene,” said Drew Wolke of Bushwick. “And at the same time, I’m catching new works from unknown artists who are promising, yet original and unexpected.”

All of this, with an adult-oriented theme and animated hosts.

Fight not over for Brooklyn senior residents

Residents at a Park Slope senior home are able to remain a while longer thanks to the extension of a previously-issued temporary restraining order (TRO). Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Wayne Saitta issued the extension from the bench last week, giving some hope to the residents that they will be — albeit temporarily — cared for in the Park Slope facility they call home.


Gun control group marches across Brooklyn Bridge

Some carried photos of loved ones cut down by a bullet. Others held signs imploring Congress to act. And nearly all shouted out "Not one more," a tear-stained rallying cry embraced by those who believe the U.S. needs tougher gun control laws.

More than 1,000 demonstrators — including nearly 100 from Newtown, Connecticut, the site of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting rampage — marched across the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday, demanding that action be taken to stem the recent wave of mass shootings across the U.S.


Clarke says military style rules are hair-raising

If a person is patriotic enough to want to serve in the U.S. military, does it matter how their hair looks?

U.S. Rep. Yvette D. Clarke says it shouldn’t be a factor.

Clarke (D-Brownsville-Crown Heights) has requested that the Pentagon suspend enforcement of regulations that prohibit many hairstyles worn by African-American women until a review ordered by Secretary of Defense Charles Hagel has been completed.

Transit Museum celebrates subway system’s 110th birthday

The Transit Museum in Downtown Brooklyn celebrated the 110th birthday of the New York City subway system on Saturday with music, food, kid-friendly workshops, a special cake and a ride on a vintage-1932 subway train.

The museum is located within the former Court Street station of the long-defunct Court Street Shuttle, on Schermerhorn Street between Court Street and Boerum Place. Guests enter through what was once one of that station’s entrances and walk down a flight of stairs past a “token booth” that’s now purely decorative.


SUNY announces agreement with developer Fortis to replace LICH with condos

Moving one step closer to a real estate deal which would close a historic hospital in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, the State University of New York (SUNY) announced late on Sunday an "agreement in principle" with Fortis Property Group for the purchase of Long Island College Hospital's (LICH) 20-building complex.


Brooklyn judge rejects effort to toss out LICH scores

State Supreme Court Justice Johnny Lee Baynes on Friday rejected the motion brought by advocates for Long Island College Hospital (LICH) to toss out several “questionable” scores for proposals to buy the historic Cobble Hill hospital.

Brooklyn community groups and doctors wanted Justice Baynes to reject six out of 18 of the rankings. Attorney Jim Walden (Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher) had argued that those rankings did not follow the rules of the state’s RFP, which called for proposals offering to operate LICH as a hospital to get more points than those not including a hospital.
