Here is another fun event for anyone in the area. A celebration honoring Howard Thompson of WPIX-TV (AKA-"Help Me Howard") will be held today at 12:30 P.M. at the Sue Ginsburg Senior Center here in the Bronx. More Kudos’ to Councilman Vacca with a great event in honor of Black History Month. It should be fun. If I can swing by and take some photos I will. More information can be found below.
