PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) – It was quite easy for Edward Garcia and Jeannie Wong to choose the name of their game-themed store.

“The Queen and the Tower is of course chess,” Garcia said. “And we’re at Queen Village in Philadelphia, so that felt right.”

The couple opened Queen & Rook Keep on South 2nd Street in Queen Village just five months ago. And, already, they’re building a solid fan base because they have something that no other place in Philadelphia has.

“We’re happy to have the largest selection of board games in Philly. More than Target, more than Walmart,” said Garcia who estimates the store has around 1,000 games for different ages and interests.

“Almost any type of board game or card game, we have it here,” Wong said.

Believe it or not, the store is the result of a pandemic hub. The original Queen and Rook is actually a cafe that opened in 2019.

“We have a full restaurant, a full bar and over 13 hundred games that people can play,” Garcia said.

But when the pandemic hit, the restaurant had to take a break. After relying on delivery for a few weeks, Garcia and Wong began to see that there was increased demand for the board games they were selling in their cafe. It was then that they had the idea to open a stand-alone retail store.

“We found a two-door space (from the cafe) that had been empty for over a year,” Garcia said.

The two quickly expanded their retail and horizons as a small business owned by two people of color.

This leads to diverse thinking, even about the smallest items they carry.

“This is the second year in a row that we’ve been lucky enough to get Dreidel dice,” Wong said of the popular item.

The owners say they have a wide range of games that customers say they can’t find anywhere else. Other buyers may look for standard games that can be found in many places, but they prefer to do their business locally.

“We have a lot of people saying I know I can find this at Target or on Amazon, but I’d rather get it from someone around the corner,” Garcia said, adding that his store is usually around 10. % of large retailers. price and, in many cases, is often cheaper than large retailers.

Often times buyers can try out games if Wong and Garcia have an open version of them at the cafe (where they need gloves to play board games and sanitize each game after use).

Wong and Garcia share the love by wearing games created by women and local minorities. They hope their store full of games will help more families enjoy the holidays.

“When you think of board games, you think of friends, family and the good times,” Garcia said.

VALLEY VILLAGE, LOS ANGELES (KABC) – Residents of Valley Village say neighborhood street lights are not being fixed quickly enough, leaving many in the dark and worried about their safety.

“It’s so dark. It is so dangerous! said Angie Fernández, who has lived in the Valley Village neighborhood for 25 years.

She says that for some reason the street lights don’t work anymore.

“I’m walking my dog ​​and you can’t see anything,” she said.

Eyewitness News visited the neighborhood at night and found the streetlights extinguished, such as on Magnolia Boulevard between Laurel Canyon and Whitsett Avenue.

Residents say the problems started about four or five weeks ago.

“There was a power surge and the lights went out and they never came back on,” said Deborah Lovett, a resident. She said she wanted to go for a walk after dinner, but now she doesn’t feel safe.

“It’s scary and people can come out of the bushes or trees. With the homeless situation around, it’s also very scary,” Lovett said.

Residents say that in recent weeks they have seen an increase in crime. They claim that it is so dark that cars on the streets are constantly broken into.

Suzanne Pagano said she had lived in the neighborhood for four years and had never encountered any problems until recently when her car was broken into and damaged.

“Now they’re starting to break in and smash all the windows,” she said.

Eyewitness News has contacted the Department of Public Works. The department said this is an issue it faces across town as light poles are vandalized.

“Although any power system is vulnerable to copper wire theft, over the past four years the city has experienced a threefold increase in theft and vandalism related to copper wire with its streetlights. In response, the Bureau of Street Lighting is toughening up access points, working more closely with the LAPD on theft cases and using new technologies such as sensors and battery-powered solar lights to prevent streetlights from breaking. turn off, ”said a statement from Miguel Sangalang of the Bureau of Street Lighting.

Unfortunately, solving the problem will not be so easy. Officials say there are problems all over the city and there are workforce issues because of the pandemic.

Getting to all the repairs will probably take months.

Shorewood officials have approved several parking changes for the village, including reducing minimum off-street parking requirements in new multi-family developments.

On November 15, the village council voted 5-2 to approve an ordinance to reduce the required off-street parking from 1.75 spaces per unit to one in multi-family developments.

The changes respond to requests from developers for parking exceptions in two proposed four-story apartment buildings – the proposed redevelopment of the former North Shore Bank office building at 4414 N. Oakland Ave, and a project of 42 units backed by Milwaukee Bucks guard Pat Connaughton at 2418 and 2428 E. Capitol Drive.

The Capitol Drive project proposes to lease 20% of its units to low-income tenants. The village’s effort to reduce off-street parking benefits its residents. affordable housing program.

The Eyrie, a four-story, 43-unit apartment building, would replace a former North Shore bank at 4414 N. Oakland Ave., Shorewood.

According to an agenda of the village council of November 15:

Parking revisions reduce the costs associated with the development of off-street parking, which promotes a higher value of affordable housing over parking. Examining whether on-street parking can devalue a neighborhood, village assessor Bill Gaber looked at sales data and found no supporting evidence.

Reducing parking mandates is a national trend that has met with opposition of some Shorewood residents during public comments at meetings.

TORONTO – Toronto Police released security camera footage of a wanted suspect in a fire that damaged a pedestrian bridge in Liberty Village on Friday night.

The fire broke out under the King-Liberty pedestrian / cycle bridge just before 8 p.m.

When the crews arrived, they faced a “major fire,” Toronto Deputy Fire Chief Jim Jessop told CP24.

“There was a lot of combustible material, and a number of rooms in this under-bridge encampment and our crews did a fantastic thing washing it out as quickly as possible,” he said.

Videos posted online show strong flames and smoke at the scene. Jessop said no one was injured in the blaze.

The bridge was closed while authorities inspect the damage to the fire.

“City engineers are assessing the damage to the bridge as a result of the fire, and we will have more to say once this assessment is complete,” a City of Toronto spokesperson said in a statement.

The bridge opened in April this year, providing pedestrians and cyclists with a direct route from Liberty Village to King Street West.

Toronto police believe a man deliberately started the fire.

“We have a man who approached this bridge. There was combustible material underneath. I think it may have been the belongings of some of the people who frequently visit this area. set it on fire, ”said Const. David Hopkinson said.

“As part of that, we turned this over to the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office. This is obviously an arson attack. We have a security camera video of our suspect, and we would love it. help from the public in trying to find him. “

The police do not know the motive for the fire.

“There may have been homeless people who stayed or sought refuge in this area. If maybe one of them had slept, it could have been so tragic,” Hopkinson said.

“Someone over there knows this guy. We have to find him. It’s very dangerous to set on fire.”

The man is described as having a slim build and dark hair. Police said he was wearing a long black jacket, black pants and a dark backpack.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them at 416-808-1400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

A community wellness and recreation center could become a reality in Powell’s Village Green.

The site was the location recommended in a report presented to Powell City Council earlier this year by Integrated Wellness Partners, an Akron-based company commissioned by the city to conduct a feasibility study for such a facility.

Village Green, which is south of the police station and town offices, includes a park accessible from Liberty Street via Hall Road.

The study is a first step in addressing a community need that the city has seen expressed in its regular community feedback program and represented more formally in the overall 2015 plan, according to City Manager Andrew White.

White called the study a “very preliminary” step in the process, but it shows that such a facility “has very real potential within our community.”

The study, which cost $ 30,000, recommended a 30,000-35,000 square foot facility that would include traditional recreation center space, as well as office and retail space for medical programs and services. and related to well-being.

Such an expanded public-private partnership, offering a range of programs, could be considered a “type of next-generation community recreation center,” said Jim Ellis, executive vice president and general manager of Integrated Wellness Partners. This week.

“It’s not quite the traditional recreation center, but offers a range of medical and wellness services and programs,” Ellis said of these facilities. “I like to say that it is a set of services and experiences organized for the improvement of the well-being of individuals and organizations.

The Continental Village Council met in ordinary session in the Council Chamber on November 9, 2021 under the chairmanship of Mayor Miller. Members present were Bartley, Varner, Armey, Streicher and Sullivan. Also in attendance were Financial Officer Darby, Administrator Prowant and Lawyer Welch. Knipp was absent. Visitor: None. The meeting opened with an oath of allegiance.

The Board considered and adopted a motion approving the minutes of the previous regular meeting, invoices as presented, receipts since the last meeting and a purchase order from yesterday and today of over 3,000 $ for Gerding Ditching for crack sealing for $ 6,102. Management reports presented, approved by signature.

FORMER COMPANY

Third reading of ordinances: The Council approved the third readings of the Water Ordinance 734-2021 and the Sewer Ordinance 735-2021.

Well rehabilitation: Moody’s attempted to remove the abandoned pump that had been abandoned in the well years ago, but the attachment broke within 100 feet of the top. He is now deeper in the well and will only have to stay there. They took the pump back to their shop for repair and found that some replacement parts would cost more than a new pump. The mayor approved the purchase of $ 5,604 for a new emergency pump, motor and cables so the well can be back online as soon as possible. They hope to have it installed by Monday, November 15. Otherwise, the well cleaning went very well.

Update of the water tower: Since the village has Well 6 and one of the high-service pumps offline, the filling of the new water tower has been delayed to avoid putting too much pressure on the system. The driveway is paved and the security fence will be installed soon along with the spray foam insulation inside the tower.

Cleaning the Clearwell: Liquid Engineering is there to clean the clearwell. A new PVC pipe will be installed to supply the chlorine to a different location in the system, as approved by the EPA.

Park benches: Four new park benches arrived this week and will soon be assembled and installed in the Main Street business district.

Paving: The paving of the subdivision is finished. Sealing the street to the sidewalk was not approved in the bid, so the mayor approved this for $ 1,275.

Police Impala: Mayor Miller has been in contact with H&K Motors to put the Impala on their land for sale. The Council has also proposed a listing on govdeals.com.

NEW COMPANY

Building permit: NOTHING

Election day: Mayor Miller congratulated the four council members for retaining their seats after the election. He also thanked the voters of the Village for their approval of the renewal of the withdrawals.

Sandblasting quote: A quote for the sandblasting of the green sand filter tanks has been reviewed and approved by council. This will extend the life of the tanks by about 10 years. The quote is $ 7,600 per tank and they hope to do two more this year.

Property lease: The village has received a letter regarding the railway property it is leasing. Darby called and found that the original lease was signed in 1980 for the village to lease the abandoned railroad in the southwest quadrant of the village for $ 25 / year. Norfolk & Southern would like to draft a new lease with the Village for $ 100 / year with an annual increase of 3% each year. After some research by Admin. Wishing to know why the village rented it in the first place, the council sees no advantage in renting it any longer. The board proposed that Welch write a letter to break the lease on the renewal date.

Leak adjustments: The Village has received quite a few requests on water / sewer bills for adjustments due to leaks that were found and repaired during this last billing period. A Sugar Street resident had a major leak and requested a one-time reduction to a normal recommended bill of $ 168. Board approved

A resident on Rice Street asked to reduce the sewer portion of the bill because the leaking water was not going through the sewer, to a recommended amount of $ 311. The Council approved the recommendation.

A resident of Trailer Court had two high bills, he paid the first one but now the bill is quite high. The trailer has since been sold and she advised the new owner to check the toilet for leaking toilets. Prowant recommended a one-time reduction to a normal bill of $ 280. Miller asked him to follow up with the new owners to make sure repairs are made. The Board approved the request.

Due to all the rains that the village received, the excess water in the small pond was pumped into the large pond by garbage pumps. The village hired Van Ham Dairy to use its big pump to move the water faster.

The next meeting will take place on Tuesday 23 November 2021 in the Council Chamber.

Having no further business, Council decided to adjourn the meeting.

Finance officer

Local studio Lehrer Architects has built a community of brightly colored cottages on a narrow strip in Los Angeles for the city’s homeless residents.


The Whitsett West Tiny Home Village occupies an oddly shaped expanse of land in North Hollywood, measuring a quarter of a mile long and only 20 feet (six meters) wide in places.

The Whitsett West Tiny Home Village occupies an oddly shaped site off of LA’s Highway 170

The community has 150 beds in 77 units, as well as hygiene trailers, storage, offices and common areas.

The necessary infrastructure such as electricity, storm sewers, sewers, water, ADA accessibility and drainage are also integrated.

Pink sided units at Whitsett West Tiny Home Village
The village has 77 accommodation units that can accommodate up to 150 inhabitants

This is the fourth collaboration of this nature in seven months between Lehrer Architects and the city of Los Angeles, leading to the creation of transitional housing on abandoned urban land, including the village of Alexandra Park.

“After completing three successful Tiny Home Villages, each in a very different urban setting, working on this site has been particularly satisfying,” said Nerin Kadribegovic, partner of Lehrer Architects.

“The quirkiness of its shape and location forced us to use every tool in our design palette to ensure that this forgotten piece of land brings dignity and joy to its future residents.”

Colorful communal tables and seats
The site has common areas for eating and socializing

The lockable micro-houses, which can accommodate one or two people, are manufactured by Pallet shelter and delivered to the job site flat and unassembled.

The 2.4 meter by 2.4 meter structures are white in color, but have been decorated by Lehrer Architects in bright colors to create a more pleasant living space.

They are arranged in rows facing the common outdoor areas which are also colored in blue, green and yellow.

“A deep joy of these projects is the necessity and intensity of their visual presence,” said Michael B Lehrer, founder of Lehrer Architects. “Every tool in our visual palette has been used starting with perspective, procession and color.”

Rows of painted housing
Bright colors have been chosen to create a more desirable living space

An eight-foot sound barrier blocks out noise from the adjacent freeway and provides residents with privacy.

Like the studio’s previous tiny villages, Whitsett West is intended as temporary accommodation for LA’s homeless population, which is estimated to be has more than 40,000 people.

The village also integrates hygiene trailers, storage, offices and other necessary infrastructure.

The city has built eight such villages so far in the past year and is currently planning to build eight more on dilapidated or left-behind land.

Other projects created to relocate homeless people in Los Angeles include an apartment complex built from shipping containers and a crisp white housing development.
