The death of a legendary journalist

Spin Cycle: Fact it, they don’t make them like they used to. Comments (1)
Page 1: The Brooklyn Paper and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them. And The Brooklyn Paper and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generation. Because we want our readers — and all readers in this nation — to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them. Keep hustlin’ Brooklyn. Read more…
