Gracie Mansion hosted a performance of scenes from MCC Theater’s new production Charm, about an etiquette school for transgender youth in Chicago, followed by a panel discussion with cast members and LGBTQ community leaders


NEW YORK–– First Lady Chirlane McCray and Gabrielle Fialkoff, Senior Advisor and Director of the Mayor’s Office of Strategic Partnerships, announced today a partnership between the Gracie Mansion Conservancy and MCC Theater during its 2017/18 season to increase access to arts and culture to at-risk youth. Gracie Mansion hosted the launch event on Wednesday, September 20th, featuring a performance of selected scenes from the Off-Broadway production ofCharm, followed by a youth-focused panel discussion.


This partnership will provide 75 youths from across the City with tickets to attend productions in MCC’s 2017-18 season, along with pre- and post-show workshops with actors, designers, and other members of MCC’s creative team. This opportunity to participate in an entire season (rather than a “one-off” theatrical experience) will help young people access and understand the multitude of stories that can be told through theater, provide a safe space to discuss their life experiences, and foster exploration of career paths within one of the City’s touchstone industries, which contributes upwards of $12 billion to the economy of New York City and supports 87,000 jobs.


“I always say if I couldn’t write poetry, or dance or express myself through the arts as a teenager, I don’t know where I’d be. Art is therapeutic and healing – and it belongs to everyone. The Gracie Mansion Conservancy is proud to partner with MCC Theater in its commitment to bring the arts to our city’s most vulnerable youth and uplift voices that are far too often underrepresented in theater,” said First Lady Chirlane McCray, who leads the NYC Unity Project.

Haitian American authors scheduled for Independent Book-Music-Short-film & Fashion Festival Launch in Atlanta, Georgia


Yamila F. Coby - New York

Book Title: "Let It All Out"

I was born in Cite Soleil, Haiti on November 6, 1992 but I was raised in the capital Port-au-Prince. My mother died when I was just six years old, I was raised by her sisters, my grandmother and my father. I am the only child of my mother. However, I have two little sisters on my father’s side.

I started writing when I was near eight years old. I was mostly writing scripts and poems. I was always excited, and I became very passionate about what I do. It was either the entertainment industry or childhood education. When I was ten I use to have lots of kids from the neighborhood that did not go to school in my backyard. I showed them what I had learned, taught them to read and write, etc. (read more here)

Book Title "Silent War for LOve"


This book is about a young lady who has been raped, sodomized, forced into prostitution, adultery; treated poorly by family members, and friends of family members.

Yellow Taxi Drivers Can Now Lease on Commission:
The TLC’s Fair Share Pilot Announces First Participant

Yellow taxi drivers that lease cabs participating in the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission’s (TLC) Fair Share Pilot can now work on commission, rather than beginning a shift by paying a full lease payment.

New York City Taxi Group is the first garage to join TLC’s pilot and offer this popular leasing arrangement, and is doing so using the latest technology.  The app Lacus Driver lets drivers lease on commission, check their earnings, find an available taxi, and get on the road in a tap.

“Yellow taxi drivers now have more options, they don’t have to start their day ‘in the hole.’  Drivers will pay for the lease as they earn instead of regardless of whether or not they earn,” said TLC Commissioner and Chair Meera Joshi.  “And we are very excited that an innovative garage is providing this opportunity for yellow taxi drivers.”

New York City Taxi Group, a Brooklyn-based fleet that manages over 260 medallions, has begun to offer fair share commission leases to drivers.  The maximum commission charged is 35%.  Through the app, drivers receive the following benefits: (read more)
