This blog is ending but go to a independent new one below

As we have mentioned we have been running out of memory. What started experimenting and a blog class has grown up. We recommend a new blog with the same staff which will be more fun and have more liberties. It will still have Brooklyn College news and events but more independent and expand to other colleges in Brooklyn. Clubs, fraternities and sororities will have a folder about them. It will be like the Village Voice with pop culture, something to do on the weekend and humor. Not good bye but to be continued. Send in a story, or video and say hello at

Past President of the Board for Hillel profiled

Lew Fidler has served in the City Council for nearly 12 years, and currently serves as the Assistant Majority Leader and Chairman of the Committee on Youth Services. Councilman Fidler has been the author of numerous pieces of legislation, which have expanded our City’s recycling ability, provided anti-bullying education in public schools, and brought common sense to our City. He predicted the mortgage foreclosure crisis years before its occurrence and at his insistence the City Council was prepared with a foreclosure prevention program for City residents. He has also been the staunchest advocate for runaway and homeless youth, a vulnerable group that would otherwise have no natural constituency to speak for them.
