General Worth Monument

Worth Square
Our neighborhood is chock full of history. As you walk through the area, there are historical buildings, monuments, and lots of new history as well.

Ever wonder what the obelisk by the office is on the island between 24 and 25th street, at the cross section of Broadway and Fifth Avenue? (Picture above with 2-lovely tourists)

It’s part of the General William Jenkins Worth monument. General Worth is the reason for his namesake cities of Fort Worth, Texas, Lake Worth, Texas, Worth, Illinois, Worth County, Georgia, the Lake Worth Lagoon in Florida, the city of Lake Worth, Florida and our very own Worth Street in Manhattan.

The native New Yorker passed on May 17, 1849 in Texas and was taken to the little island, named Worth Square for burial.

Read the New York Times article on the internment of General Worth in Worth Square. Published November 26, 1857.

Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

From May 2 through May 9, bring non-perishable food items to your local USPS to help families in need in your community for the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

On May 9th, Campbell Soup Company and The United States Postal Service are partnering once again with the National Association of Letter Carriers to sponsor Stamp Out HungerTM, the “nation’s largest single-day food drive”. Your participation in this cause is instrumental to its success.

Types of accepted items: canned meats, canned fish, canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal, and rice. Please do not include items in glass or expired items.

Items will be delivered to local food banks or pantries.

If you can’t make it to your post office during the week, Feeding America is accepting donations online, along with a cool calculator that shows how your donation makes an impact.

Food Bank of NY mentions what a great impact this drive had in New York City last year: “In 2008, food drives held in Brooklyn and Queens helped raise food for more than 25,000 free meals.” As you already know we are a big fan of the Food Bank of NY!

Here’s a copy of the flyer we received in the office.
