PS22 Chorus kids always like to employ good grammar, but even better is when they employ the GREAT Andy Grammer to sing along with them!! Check out this performance of Andy’s theme song to FIVE FEET APART that moved him to tears….
The Webby Award-winning PS22 Chorus was formed in the year 2000. We are an ever-changing group of 5th graders from a public elementary school in Staten Island, New York. PS22 is NOT a “school for the arts,” and the chorus is not a magnet program. PS22 Chorus just features ordinary children achieving extraordinary accomplishments — musically and otherwise.

In coffee shops all over the world, the same set of design elements keep popping up. What is happening? This week, Quartz News looks at the global look that’s part Starbucks, part Silicon Valley, and very “Brooklyn.” If you’re in cities like Mumbai, São Paulo, Seoul, Paris, London, Kuala Lumpur, Lagos—anywhere, really—you might notice something: coffee shops are starting to look the same. Distinctive design elements—Edison bulbs, reclaimed wood, potted plants, exposed brick—are popping up in coffee shops everywhere. It isn’t just the design of these spaces that are becoming increasingly uniform. The expectation of enjoying beautiful, artfully-decorated, high-quality coffee has spread to places as far-flung as Auckland, New Zealand, and Atyrau, Kazakhstan. (To understand this, just follow #latteart on Instagram.) While it’s debatable where this look originated, it has come to be associated with one place: Brooklyn, New York.

Perched on the edge of both Sapsucker Woods and its 10-acre pond, these feeders attract both forest species like chickadees and woodpeckers as well as some species that prefer open environments near water like Red-winged Blackbirds.
