Yankees' Cory Lidle Plane Crash on 72nd Street in Manhattan, NYC



NEW YORK — A small plane with New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle aboard crashed into a 50-story condominium tower Wednesday on Manhattan's Upper East Side, killing two people, authorities said.
There was no immediate confirmation Lidle was among the dead, and earlier reports indicated four had died. A law enforcement official in Washington, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Associated Press that Lidle was on the plane. And Federal Aviation Administration records showed the single-engine plane was registered to the athlete, National Transportation Safety Board spokeswoman Deborah Hersman told reporters.

An instructor and a student pilot were on the plane when it struck the tower at 524 E. 72nd St., New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. "The metal parts are basically in the street. The engine was on one of the floors," he said.

"The initial indication is that there is a terrible accident," Homeland Security Department spokesman Russ Knocke said, and Bloomberg said there was "nothing to suggest that anything remotely like terrorism was involved in this." Nevertheless, fighter jets were scrambled over U.S. cities as a precaution, the Pentagon said.

The crash at the Belaire overlooking the East River struck fear in a city devastated by the attacks of Sept. 11 five years ago. Sirens echoed across the neighborhood as emergency workers and ambulances rushed in with stretchers. Broken glass and debris were strewn around the neighborhood.

Brown Jr., Tuskegee Airman and past President of Bronx Community College; Preston King Jr., CPA, and marathon runner; and Abdul El Amin, runner of two Ultra Marathons and trainer. They convened a committee of runners, coaches, educators, civic & business leaders to create a racing and cultural event for the enrichment of the Harlem community.



The 1990’s brought another, major cultural and economic revitalization spurred by the formation of the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, New York City housing Development programs and investment by visionary entrepreneurs. Today, The Harlem Renaissance 5-Mile Classic is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with a mission to generate college scholarship funds for Harlem youth by celebrating the aspirations of the Renaissance of the past and the joy of revival currently spreading throughout this world-famous community. The race event brings light to the contributions made by Harlem residents in the fields of art, civics, history, literature and the sciences. The hope is to provide participants and spectators alike with a glimpse of Harlem's energy, diverse architectural structures, great cultural institutions, historic sites, and world renowned churches.

Raising Scholarship Funds for youth of the Harlem Community is the stated Mission of HR5MCO. For this reason, this race event has earned the support of national corporations, as well as local businesses, elected officials and other non-profit organizations.

ReelSolidTV Episode 09

The Tenth Annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade was held on Sunday, June 11th. 2006 along its route on Fifth Avenue in New York City, starting at 44th Street and ending at 86th Street, with more than 80,000 people marching.

Officials estimate that more than Two Million people were present at Fifth Avenue. This fact has made the National Puerto Rican Day Parade the largest outdoors cultural event in the nation.



The Parade is shown on New York Metropolitan area Spanish television stations and via satellite, throughout the world,making it a truly international event. The Parade up Fifth Avenue, while certainly the most visible aspect of the celebration of the culture and heritage of the Puerto Rican People, is not the only event associated with The National Puerto Rican Day Parade, Inc.'s activities. More than 10,000 people each year attend a variety of award ceremonies, banquets and cultural events.

In 1997, the Board of Directors of the parade adopted a resolution that dedicates each year's parade to the achievements of those Puerto Ricans who were the architects of the Puerto Rico of today.... thereby educating Puerto Ricans in the United States about their history, recognizing the heroes of Puerto Rico, and promoting their self esteem.

Based in Spanish Harlem, KR3TS fulfills a need in the community to provide a positive alternative to social and street pressures by providing dance classes and support programs in a non-discriminating atmosphere. KR3TS also carries out its mission through its core-performance group that fosters pre-professional dancers.



KR3TS Dance Company caters to children, young adults of lower to middle income families in Latino communities of New York City primarily. The company also opens its doors to any other community. Their goal is to provide an outlet to develop skills and abilities that will enhance their lifestyles.

They learn to express their talents through dance, and are encouraged to set goals, strive for what they believe in, to improve their self-esteem, cooperation, and integration as part of a group, and to dream. They are secure with the knowledge that no matter what level of skill, they can achieve their goals through dedication, determination and hard work.

No matter what the obstacles, they must...

Keep Rising To The Top!!

The program offers a year round ongoing curriculum, for both males and females, ranging from 5 to 34 years of age, and has students from varied ethnic backgrounds.

Offered are private classes, workshops, performers, management for artists and dancers, coaching, artist development - height, size, age, race doesn't matter - this is a family, anyone can do it!! Practice is based in Spanish Harlem.

They are exposed to varied dance styles such as ballet, modern, jazz, hip-hop, salsa, merengue, and African dance. Participation in field trips to area performances, guest teachers and opportunities to showcase their talent at local arts and civic centers are just part of the fuel that keeps the KR3TS students improving and striving to be the best they can be.

They have been featured on the METRO Channel "Studio Y". They are also proud to have choreographed and performed to the title song of the film Blazin (featuring Angie Martinez, Phat Joe..) at the movie's premiere in New York City.
