Hi it’s La’Saen.
Emily and I have been given a new task, which is to create a youth council for DTE. A youth council would give young people in Red Hook (and other places in Brooklyn where DTE programs) a chance to inform us what we can do to help them in any way- offering new programming, services, or even providing space for their own projects.
I’m hoping that this youth council will help me develop my skills in planning events, and that it will help DTE respond better to the needs of the young people in its community.
This Saturday, January 31st.
Screening, food, and more, at Rocky Sullivan’s.
Chat with the cast and crew (and if you are cast and crew make sure you’re there!) about this unique TV pilot and the pre-professional training program that created it.

Scott Turner of Rocky Sullivan’s post-inaugural address on Only The Blog Knows Brooklyn reminded us of some things from an old New York Magazine article about the “de-gentrification” of Red Hook.
According to a pre-inauguration piece in the Chicago Tribune:
The 48-mower contingent will include one topped with a 5-foot replica of the Washington Monument, another with a well-endowed mannequin wearing a T-shirt declaring “D.C. or bust,” and another called “Obama the self-starter.” It features two hands emerging from the mower and grabbing the starter rope.
Read the blog to see why that bizarre quote might make you feel a little brighter about the future.
Head over to the website to (electronically) meet our newest intern, Emily.
While you’re there check out the new pages for BIHS and (a long overdue update for) Red Hook High, and get a first peak at this year’s Red Hook Waterfront Arts Festival.
