Tonight on Green Talk Live & More, the Chefs will be discussing updates on the rebound of resilience of the Rockaway Peninsula post-Sandy. Special guest, Ofelia Mangen Sypher from the Rockaway Conservancy will be joining the Chefs to discuss these key issues. Make sure you tune in!
Our online broadcast will feature recognition of some of those we lost. Rev. Marshall Hadden, former Pastor of Holy Trimnity Church in Roosevelt, Long Island, Ms. Minnie Washington, Long time member of the St. John Baptist Church, and the New Hope Baptist in Rockaway Beach, and Ms. Annie Mae Bailey, of the St. John Baptist Church, in Rockaway Beach, NY residing for many years in Inwood Long Island. Join us as we recognize these important figures who left us much too soon. Life is but a memory when we look out at those who passed this way.
Actors Zach Grenier and Marin Ireland, who will performing in Rockaway on Dec. 6, is our guest on this week's podcast with host Mark Healey.
Grenier, who has appeared in The Good Wife, Deadwood and Fight Club and Ireland, whose credits include Homeland, The Divide and Mildred Pierce.will be appearing in "Theater of War" an event which presents dramatic readings from Sophocles’ Ajax at Fort Tilden. Hosted by the Rockaway Theatre Company at the RTC’s Post Theater, the performance is part of Theater of War’s Soldiers and Citizens Tour.
The Rockaway production is also supported by Queens Borough President Melinda Katz.
Ajax recounts the tragedy of the suicide of a great, respected warrior. It is translated, directed and facilitated by Bryan Doerries. TOW notes the work “read(s) like textbook descriptions of wounded warriors, struggling under the weight of psychological and physical injuries to maintain their dignity, identity, and honor.”
This week, New York State Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder is "Riding The Wave" to discuss the “Community Impact Study of Proposed Uses of the Rockaway Beach Branch Right of Way.” Wow, that was a mouthful.

On this week's Riding The Wave, Jack Freidman, Executive Director of The Queens Chamber of Commerce, will join us to discuss the upcoming Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 21. The newly formed Rockaway Beach Merchant Association will be throwing the party, which will run from noon to 5 p.m. at Beach 94th Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard.
We'll also discuss the QCC's support of the Queens Way project, which by it's very nature, directly opposes the efforts for the complete restoration of the Rockaway Beach Rail Line.
On this week’s podcast, Azi Paybarah from CapitalNewYork.com was unable to join the show because of breaking news. Paybarah, who has covered politics for The New York Observer, WNYC-AM, The New York Sun and the New York Press, will be on a future show to give another journalist’s point of view on the peninsula’s issues – the ferry, Sandy, being ignored — and how our elected officials are viewed, city and statewide.
