Rev Norm Eddy has been quoted by Howard Brandstein as important in teaching the ins and out of tenant owned housing. We're starting this page to bring his work, together with that of the Rev Dr. Margaret Ruth Eddy - aka - his life partner - Peg, to LIGHT. Many stories of their impact in East Harlem and it seems even on the Lower East Side are to follow. We invite you to like this page and get to know more about firsts in housing rehabilitation, creative responses to police brutality, community gardens, drug addiction/rehabilitation, inner city credit unions and more.

“We The People” is an ongoing project by local artist Tine Kindermann, which she began after the 2016 election. Tine painted portraits of immigrants, Native Americans and people who were enslaved based on vintage photographs, using kraft paper rescued from outside the Satmar Shmura Matzo factory in Williamsburg, BK, an immigrant business.

“The ability to open more neural pathways appears almost limitless, and is an entry point into lively old age. Neuroscience has revealed the abounding potential for growth throughout the lifespan and the importance of change, creativity and the arts to activate the plasticity of the nervous system. The somatic experiences of the first generation of pioneers were hard to explain; now we can attribute their transformation to the neural plasticity stimulated by the conscious, mindful, somatic movement exploration.”
*Dr. Martha Eddy, Mindful Movement
