The canvas is painted in a naïve and primitive style. The canvas is painted in a naïve and primitive style. When Pat Singer decided to study art in 1975, a renowned art teacher was very impressed with her work and suggested she not take lessons, but rather rely on her own natural talent. Today, over 40 years later, she is referred to as a "naïve painter," a "primitive painter" or an "Outsider Artist."As in the tradition of Grandma Moses, Pat Singer is not concerned with perspective or anatomical preciseness as much as showing the warmth and excitement of everyday life. Her signature mark is to place herself in the painting as the artist painting that particular scene that the viewer is looking at. The American flag is also in every one of the paintings. She especially loves to paint New York City's buildings and people. Her work has appeared on the walls of TV and movie screens - including Seinfeld and Anger Management. Macy's featured her painting on the inside cover of New York Magazine to promote their July 4th fireworks celebration. She's had her work sold in NYC's most famous locations, including...

  • Parkchester: A Bronx Tale of Race and Ethnicity

    The eight-decade story of a New York neighborhood In 1940, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company opened a planned community in the East Bronx, New York. A model of what the neighborhood would become was first displayed to an excited public at the 1939 World’s Fair. Parkchester was celebrated as a “city within a city,” offering many of the attractions and comforts of suburbia, but without the transportation issues that plagued commuters who trekked into New York City every day. This new neighborhood initially constituted a desirable alternative to inner city neighborhoods for white ethnic groups with the means to leave their Depression-era homes. In this bucolic environment within Gotham, the Irish and Italian Catholics, white Protestants and Jews lived together rather harmoniously. In Parkchester, Jeffrey S. Gurock explains how and why a “get along” spirit prevailed in Parkchester and marked a turning point in ethnic relations in the city.Gurock is also attuned to, and documents fully, the egregious side to the neighborhood’s early history. Until the late 1960s, Parkchester was off-limits to African Americans and Latinos. He is also sensitive to the processes of integration that took place once the community was opened to all and explains why transition was made wit...

  • Carried Along: Coming of Age in the Sixties

    The 60s!Extremists have told their stories but who speaks for the rest of us? Could a citizen be an activist without being a radical in that polarized decade? Hank deCillia was. Born in the Bronx near the end of WWII, Hank grew up in a sheltered community. He recalls his early fears during the Cold War and his awakening to political activism in college at the beginning of the 1960s. He never led a march or threw a bomb. Still in his quiet way as a businessman, family man and homeowner, he stood up for what he believed.He recalls that, like most of his contemporaries, he lived between the extremes of the era, carried along by events. He tells his story with wry humor and keen insight. Many readers will remember the music, films and headlines that shaped his life and theirs. Younger readers will see a more balanced view of the time than they may have encountered in their history books.A great voice: accessible, charming, humble, funny, bewildered at times. It’s a charming read in addition to a moving one—not to mention a really excellent walk through history. ~~Leigh Gallagher, Author and Assistant Managing Editor, Fortune MagazineFor those who were there and those who wish they had been, CARRIED ALONG is a proverbial moving sidewalk through the most pivotal era in recent histo...
