“No kid should have to feel alone.” That’s the thought that drove Peggy Morales, chair of Manhattan Community Board 11 ’s Public Safety & Transportation Committee, to spearhead the interview with two Manhattan teens on the topic of bullying that will air on MNN this Sunday.
Since the '90s, "Project Art Show Series" has covered NY's art scene with "wit and whimsy," and even though most episodes are still from the '90s, they retain a glow from that summery time, when independent artists could actually make a living here. Much of the work presented is as 'fringe' as the show itself--awkward, silly pieces that mix well with the odd editing and comic segments.
It’s now been 12 weeks since MNN began a complete overhaul of its equipment and technology at 59th Street, a renovation that’s poised to usher the public access station’s producers and programming into the 21st Century.
We're in the final stages of a complete overhaul of MNN's 59th Street studios, but we have by no means forgotten our dedication to bringing Manhattan residents programming that's relevant and important to their lives. So for today's Clip of the Week, we bring you MNN's stellar coverage of Council Speaker Christine Quinn's 2013 State of the City Address earlier this month.
MNN 59th Street is reopening on Friday, February 22, for Tape Drop Off, Edit and Field Services. Field hours are Mon-Fri, noon-8pm. Non Linear Ediing is open Mon-Fri, noon-10p. Non Linear Editing reservations can be made at 212-757-2670 ext 361. Tape Library is open M-Fri noon-8p and Saturday 10a-4pm. Due to construction, please note that wheelchair accessibility at 59th Street may be limited. Be sure to call ahead at 212-757-2670 x301 to get an up-to-date status report on all services at MNN's 59th Street facility.
