Juan Ma Morales leads the band as vocalist and plays guitar as well as the Puerto Rican cuatro. They have performed in numerous venues including Harlem Meers in Central Park, Sounds of Brazil (SOB), and Subros, among others.
The performance will take place at the Queens Library in Ridgewood, 20-12 Madison Street on Saturday, September 29th at 3 pm. Admission is free.
Available transportation options to this location include taking the M train to Forest Avenue, or the B13, B20, Q39, or Q58 buses.
The DEP says it will shut off water service to buildings on Stanhope Street between Onderdonk and Seneca Wednesday, September 12th from 8am until 4pm. They advise that building owners shut off the water main service to their buildings to prevent sediment in drinking water. They are putting a twenty inch water main along Stanhope at that time. They say that the work could get done sooner than 8-hours, but give them 8-hours to complete the job.
This home is a large brick two-family duplex townhouse located on a historic block in Ridgewood.
The house’s location is a commuter’s dream as it’s near shopping, schools and transportation. There are 6 large rooms over 6 large rooms over 4 rooms with a full basement. There’s also a patio in the backyard.
According to Coldwell Banker Kueber Realty, the house will be delivered vacant on title.
The Health Department is spray pesticide in parts of Queens and Brooklyn, including LIC, tonight between 8:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. on Wednesday.
The spray is to reduce mosquito activity and the risk of West Nile virus. This is the eighth time this season the city has conducted adulticide treatment, as it’s called.
The city is using very low concentrations of Anvil 10+10, which has low risks for people and pets. But some people who are sensitive to spray ingredients may experience eye or throat irritation, the city warns.
To stay safe during the spray, health officials advise staying indoors when possible and leaving the air conditioner on.
After the spray, you can, but are not required to, wash outdoor toys or equipment with soap and water, and wash fruits and vegetables with water.
