It's a movement of peace for the world to recognize that at the end of the day, we are all special, we are all important. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream, that dream woke up the world, now the world needs to open up it's eyes. We need to be proud to stand alone, be strong enough to stand apart, but be smart enough to stand together and that time is RIGHT NOW!.
Social media is aiding to every issue that this world is experiencing from racism, to terrorism, sexual discrimination, etc... It's time that we have a symbol, a positive movement that brings together everyone, a voice that stands for one cause, a symbol that represents one world, we need One Love. "One Love L's Up"

With a desire to replicate the taste of home, King of Falafel and Shawarma was born. On April 18, 2002, on the corner of Broadway and 30th St in Astoria we made our home. With support and love from the community we were able to serve our authentic street fare to not only Astorians but people all over the world. In 2010 we expanded our location to include the NW corner of 53rd St and Park in Midtown Manhattan. Voted as the #1 street vendor in New York City is no small feat. Everything we make is from scratch, using the best ingredients and flavor combinations. Not far from our food truck on 31st St and Broadway is our first permanent home. We look forward to sharing foods we have grown up with and new interpretations of Palestinian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
Voted as the #1 street … [Continue reading...]

Early Friday morning, when Ann Shumard’s radio delivered the news that B.B. King had died the night before, the senior curator of photographs at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery swung into action.
“I dropped everything, got on the computer and said, ‘Can we get an in memoriam label up?'” she recalls.
Call it breaking-news museum curation.
Messages were already pinging between curators, graphic designers and other museum staff: Do we have a portrait of the late great bluesman? Can we acknowledge his passing?
Shumard of course knew that a fine black-and-white photographic portrait already was on display in a … [Continue reading...]
