The article quotes longtime resident Frank Galeano, who recalls a community filled with "so many abandoned buildings that he and his friends used them as 'clubhouses,' running extension cords from nearby streetlights" in the 1960s. This vision runs in stark contrast to the Red Hook of today, where a "proudly self-selecting group" drawn to its cobblestone streets, waterfront views, and "off-the-grid ambience" will pay upwards of $1 million for the few houses that come onto the market.

Supporting the Staten Island Youth Justice Center at "Inside/Outside Legislative Theatre" Performance

On June 4th, a group of the Red Hook Youth Court members and staff went to see the "Theater of the Oppressed NYC" performance at the New School. Before attending this event, the youth court members had no idea that anything like this went on!

The performances last night were put on by members of the Staten Island Youth Justice Center (part of the Center for Court Innovation Family). These two plays dealt with real life issues such as getting stopped for not paying your bus fare, arriving late to school and getting sent to the principal's office because of the "zero tolerance policy," getting into fights at school, not knowing one's rights, and being racially …

Thank You AmeriCorps Members

Last Friday we held a graduation for our AmeriCorps members, the last class of the New York Juvenile Justice Corps. Over the past year, the members have served throughout the Center for Court Innovation's New York City projects at various positions within our courts and community programs. They served as a bridge to the communities we work in, and provided valuable support to our projects and various initiatives. The members will be missed and we wish them the best in all their future endeavors.
