The newest Tremont Tribune hit streets yesterday and is online now. Inside:
A series of shootings in Crotona on November 16 left a 19-year-old dead and two others wounded, and launched a community effort to find ways to combat the violence (an effort which will head downtown later today, when the students at the Mary Mitchell Family and Youth Center, who witnessed some of the shootings, will stage a skit on the steps of City Hall to ask Mayor Bloomberg to come visit their neighborhood).
The mother of the slain 19-year-old remembers her son.
A local mosque is stepping up and reaching out to the community, jarred into action by recent violence in their neighborhood.
Gil Teitel, 71, speaks about his legendary store, Teitel Brothers, the Arthur Avenue institution entering its 95th year.
Aida Haddock, president of the 48th Precinct Community Council, offers her take on crime and community.
Plus: A police officer convicted of perjury, photos from Thanksgiving and Albanian Independence Day in Belmont, and, as always, our listing of community announcements and events.
Take a look.
