Health Department Launches New Anti-Smoking Media Campaign Targeting Male Smokers

The Health Department today launched a new media campaign to encourage men to quit smoking. In 2017 in New York City, men were nearly twice as likely to smoke as women, and their rates have not declined since 2010. More than one in six men smoke cigarettes (17.5 percent). Quitting smoking lowers the risk of developing heart disease, stroke, cancers, lung disease and other illnesses. The campaign will run on TV, on social media, in newspapers, in the subway, and on the Staten Island Ferry. Today through Thursday, October 18, New Yorkers who want help to quit smoking can apply for free nicotinic patches and lozenges by going online at or calling 1-866-NY-QUITS.

2018 年10月3日– 衛生局今天推出了一個新的媒體宣傳活動,鼓勵男士戒煙。在2017年紐約市,男性吸煙的可能性接近是女性的兩倍,而這個比率自2010以來都沒有下降過。 有超過六分之一的男性吸煙(17.5%)。戒煙可降低罹患心臟病、中風、癌症、肺病和其他疾病的風險。宣傳活動會在電視、社交媒體、報紙、地鐵和 Staten Island渡輪上播出。從今天起至10月18日星期四,希望戒煙的紐約市民可以透過造訪nysmokefree.com或致電1-866-NY- QUITS,索取免費的尼古丁貼片和含片。

Hester Street Fair is going all out in October with four first-time-ever Saturday Markets:  Octoberfest, Made In NYC Marketplace, Harvest Day and a  Halloween Party. Two first-time Special Sunday Festivals:  CBD Only, an extra special Food Baby Festival and returning for its third year, the Casual Art Fair.

Grab a drink, enjoy the sounds from the DJ, and join us for an evening of Taiwanese street snacks (小吃) , book signing, music, and fun, in celebration of Ed Lin’s latest mystery, 99 Ways to Die, set in a Taipei Night Market during Double Ninth Festival.

The Museum will open for free all day for self-guided visitors or guided tours. Hourly tours with expert docents will tell the story of our home, the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue, and its 20-year, $20 million restoration. Completed in 2007, the meticulous restoration reversed decades of neglect and decay, uncovering fascinating history and raising preservation questions along the way.

Kyo Pang founded Kopitiam three years ago as a homage to the coffee and tea parlors of Malaysia, where she grew up. A typical Malaysian kopitiam is a ramshackle hangout where people drop in to read the morning paper, grab breakfast, catch up on neighborhood gossip and do all the other things that classically accompany a cup of tea or coffee. Something of that spirit pervades Kopitiam, too.
