James P. Molinaro

Molinaro will be holding his first autism advocacy event on Thursday, October 21st at 7:00 p.m. in the Petrides School Auditorium, where more than 1,000 Staten Island family members, friends and caregivers of those living with autism will unveil an "Autism Bill of Rights" and call on government to do more to help the autism community. "Grease" actress and autism advocate Didi Conn will be guest speaker. For more information, call 718-816-2133 or visit www.StatenIslandUSA.com.

B.P. Molinaro Calls for the Continuation of School Bus Services on Staten Island Click here for more information on this issue

Borough President James P. Molinaro strongly urged that school bus service for 7th and 8th graders be continued on Staten Island.

"While this is an issue that affects numerous parts of our City, nowhere is it making more of an impact than here on Staten Island," Molinaro said. "Sixty-five percent of the 4,600 children who lost bus service in the entire City are Staten Island residents. Now take that astronomical
number and add in the fact that we are the most underserved Borough in terms of public transportation, and have an extreme problem with the lack of sidewalks in many neighborhoods, and you have a tragedy waiting to happen."

9/11 Memorial Blood Donor Drive Surpasses Goal
Click here to read the press release
For the eighth straight year, Borough President James P. Molinaro held a blood drive across the Borough to honor the memory of Staten Islanders killed on 9/11. The goal was to collect 274 pints - one for each victim, including Stephen Knapp, who was killed in the 1993 bombing of the Twin Towers.
"I'm very proud that on the ninth anniversary of 9/11, Staten Islanders came out in record numbers to give the 'gift of life' as a way of paying tribute to our lost loved ones," said Molinaro.
The Borough President thanked the 488 Staten Islanders who gave "the gift of life" at his annual September 11th Blood Donor Drive, far exceeding the goal of 274 pints.

Noble Maritime Collection Unveils New Exhibit Click here for www.noblemaritime.org
The Noble Maritime Collection has unveiled a new exhibit - artifacts from the site's original tenants, Sailor's Snug Harbor. The site had been built as a home for retired sailors in 1833 and housed thousands of men until the 1960s when they moved base to Sea Level, North Carolina. A great number of artifacts, including model ships, art, documents, and navigation equipment, also made the move. Today, through a collaboration with the Sailor's Snug Harbor Trust, the Noble Maritime Collection has become stewards of a large portion of that collection, bringing these priceless pieces of Snug Harbor's and Staten Island's history home.

The museum is open Thursday through Sunday, 1pm to 5pm. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students, seniors, and educators. Museum members and children under 10 are free.

For more information call 718.447.6490 or go to www.noblemaritime.org
