Tilden update- NYC open restaurants

NYC’s Open Restaurant Program is an effort to implement a citywide multi-phase program to expand outdoor seating options for restaurants and bars to promote open space, enhance social distancing, and help them rebound in these difficult economic times.

NYC’s approach prioritizes geographic equity and allows us to reach the areas most impacted by COVID-19.

Please do share with any restaurant owners you know.

Passing of John “Butch” Purcell

It is with deep sadness we are writing to let you know that John ” Butch” Purcell passed away very suddenly Monday night at home.   Butch was with his wife Mary.  Their son John is now with Mary as they both grieve this sudden, tragic loss.

Butch was 74. He was a good, decent man with a beautiful soul. His loss is felt by us all.  A service is being planned. The family requests no flowers but will be deciding on a place for donations. 

Some stories about Butch’s life

Playground Dedication on September 2019

Town and Village – Playground number 9 named after “Butch” Purcell

Town and Village- In the Name of Butch

His name is John Purcell. To his legion of friends he is simply known as “Butch.” He has been a resident of Stuyvesant Town for over five decades. ……

…..Butch has spent his adult life helping young people. He has devoted much of his time keeping kids away from drugs and other self-destructive behaviors. When he has encountered those who have already gone down that poisoned path, he has shown them an off ramp….

At a time when smart and unselfish leadership in our nation and community is in short supply, we look for persons who lead not for personal profit or power but to do good. John Butch Purcell did very good.

Debate watch this week!
