Greetings Community,

I’m excited to let you know about a new business venture we are embarking on.  Over the last several years, many of you have contacted me either looking to purchase/rent property or to inform me that you have property available.  We’re pleased that we have been able to assist some of you in  finding your new homes etc.   

As a result of this unexpected twist in our day to day operations, we have teamed up with Real Estate Agent Kevin Ryan-Young of Bond New York Properties (http://www.bondnewyork.com).

So, if you or someone you know is looking to rent/purchase a new home or have property you would like to sell or rent, please contact me and together with Kevin Ryan-Young we will get you into the perfect home and/or find you the perfect buyer.  I look forward to hearing from you and visiting properties together. 

We guarantee you a professional and pleasant experience, so give me a call or drop me a line and be certain to pass this a long to your friends and associates. 

In the meantime here is a link to an exclusive property at 110th and Manhattan Ave.

Coincidents is the final opera by renowned composer, improviser, and violinist/violist Leroy Jenkins. Through song, documentary footage, interviews, and video art, the opera explores whether two people from radically different worlds — Jenkins, a son of the Great Migration who grew up in the hustle of Chicago, and Griffin, who grew up in Wales during the German air raids of WWII — could possibly be related.

Jenkins and Griffin use the lens of personal biographic details to look at universal issues of human identity and the great diasporas of history and the present day, the assumption or infliction of a new identity as a necessary adaptation to place, and the search for sustaining connections — to our ancestors and to each other.

Coincidents, A New Opera
Music: Leroy Jenkins

Libretto & Video: Mary Griffin
Graphics, Video & Video Design: Hisao Ihara
