Tai Chi is an internal form of martial art that is practiced for health and self-defense. Incorporating breathing with slow and fluid movements, the exercise connects the internal focus of the mind with the external control of the body.  Practicing Tai Chi ultimately leads to Improved Circulation, Better Balance, Greater Flexibility, Increased Energy and Reduced Tension.

Joseph Panico has been practicing martial arts for more than 15 years.  He began his Tai Chi training in 1997 at Red Dragon Kung Fu Center under Sifu Rafael Gomez and has been studying Tai Chi and Qigong extensively with Sifu Joseph Laracuenta since 2002. “Our goal is to live a long and healthy life.  By focusing on ourselves we get to improve the quality of our life.  And by expressing that quality outward we get to improve the lives of others.”Joseph has also won numerous awards at the US Open Martial Arts Championship in Queens, NY, has performed Tai Chi at Citi Field, and has appeared as a guest on the Project Independence Radio Show 88.1FM WCWP.

Neighborhoods of the Empire City: Harlem: Many Cities in One
presented by Ron Brown

The Dutch founded Nieuw Haarlem (New Harlem) in 1637 as a country estate for the Dutch and later English elite. The Morris-Jumel Mansion of 1765 captures this age. With the opening of Central Park and the building of the first elevated trains, Harlem became a city of Protestant and Jewish upper- middle-class white professionals living in stately brownstones. Churches and synagogues transformed Lenox Avenue into the Champs-Élysées of New York. By the early 1900s Harlem became a well-to-do African American neighborhood and mass migration from the rural south transformed the city into the African American Mecca. The modern Civil Rights Movement and Harlem Renaissance put Black Harlem on the world map. Today Harlem is again reinventing itself as a white, upwardly mobile city within a city. 

Dr. Ronald Brown is an authority on the religious history of New York City. He has published three books on the subject; A Religious History of Flushing, Queens (2007), Into the Soul of African American Harlem (2008), How New York Became the Empire City (2009).
