For the 4th straight year, the annual Never Forget Heroes Classic baseball game between the New York Police Department Finest (NYPD) and the Fire Department of New York Bravest (FDNY).

The game between the NYPD and FDNY is held each year in memory of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice after responding to the World Trade Center area on Sept. 11, 2001.

Tickets, priced at $15 (plus applicable taxes and fees), are on sale now and can be purchased by online NYBoulders.com. As in the past, the Widows and Children’s Fund and the Stephen Siller Foundation will also benefit from the game.

“We are honored and privileged to host this game once again,” said Boulders’ President Shawn Reilly. “The Boulders’ organization is very supportive of the Police and Fire departments – as well as all first responders, and our ability to play host to this important event is just one way in which we can show our support to those individuals.”

“New York Finest (NYPD) is delighted to return to Clover Stadium for our annual Heroes Baseball Classic against FDNY,” said Jose Vasquez, President of the New York Finest Baseball Club. “We really appreciate the support and hospitality that the NY Boulders give us in hosting this event.”

FDNY Finest Team President and Head Coach Scott Miller echoed those sentiments. “FDNY Baseball is excited to return to Clover Stadium to play the NYPD for what is now the fourth consecutive year (wow)!  We always look forward to this game because it usually marks the end of our summer season and what better way to close out the summer then a stadium game in front of our family, friends and fans. Can’t wait!”

“Every artist’s journey begins with a source of inspiration. My creative ventures in art and photography began at age 9 when my Dad gave me my first camera.

The photography on these walls is the result of that “gift” that I was given and a new opportunity to “see” things in a variety of new and exciting ways.

Model trains were in my life from age 2 while living in our families Brooklyn apartment, before moving to Haverstraw, NY in 1964…”

”It is my hope that by viewing my photographs, you may travel along with me to places you’ve never been, experiencing the power, romance and majesty of trains and ultimately, the Lure of the Rails…”

Juneteenth Is Our Country’s Second Independence Day

Published

on

On the evening of January 1, 1863, enslaved and free African Americans gathered in churches and private homes all across the country awaiting news that the Emancipation Proclamation had taken effect. At the stroke of midnight, prayers were answered and all enslaved people in Confederate States were declared legally free. Union soldiers, many of whom were black, marched onto plantations and across cities in the south reading small copies of the Emancipation Proclamation spreading the news of freedom in Confederate States. The Thirteenth Amendment ended slavery throughout the United States.

But not everyone in Confederate territory would immediately be free. Even though the Emancipation Proclamation was made effective in 1863, it could not be implemented in places still under Confederate control. As a result, in the westernmost Confederate state of Texas, enslaved people would not be free until much later. Freedom finally came on June 19, 1865, when some 2,000 Union troops arrived in Galveston Bay, Texas. The army announced that the more than 250,000 enslaved black people in the state, were free by executive decree. 

Juneteenth is our country’s second independence day. This occasion has been celebrated by African American communities for over 150 years. Yet some Americans are not aware of this monumental event. On June 17, 2021 a bill was signed making Juneteenth the 11th American federal holiday. Juneteenth is celebrated every year on June 19th.
