Noel Pointer Court Makes Its Debut

Noel Pointer Court is Not Your Typical Low-Moderate Housing Complex

Today was the ribbon-cutting and grand opening ceremony for Noel Pointer Court, a newly-constructed residential building with 23 affordable apartments developed by Bridge Street Development Corporation (BSDC).

As you can see from the photos, this is not your typical low-to-moderate income housing. Kudos to BSDC!

The building, named in honor of the late Brooklyn-born jazz violinist Noel Pointer, is located at 790 Lafayette Avenue between Throop and Marcus Garvey Avenues in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant.

Low-and moderate-income tenants for the eight 1-bedroom and fifteen 2-bedroom apartments were selected via a public lottery process conducted in partnership with the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

More than 4,000 applications were received.

Tom Joyner Offers Rachel Jeantel Full College Scholarship

Ebony magazine reported that radio personality Tom Joyner, also known as "The Fly Jock," has offered Rachel Jeantel, a full scholarship to any Historically Black College or University she chooses.

The website Joyner founded, BlackAmericaWeb.com, confirmed the news.

Rachel Jeantel is the friend of Trayvon Martin who spoke to him shortly before he was murdered.

Jeantel spoke to Joyner on his radio show Tuesday morning. He said to her: "If you want to graduate from high school and go to an HBCU, even if it's not in Florida but especially Florida, like Florida Memorial, Edward Waters or FAMU, if you want to do that, I want to help you do that. I will help you get tutors to get you out of high school, tutors to help you pass the SAT and I will give you a full ride scholarship to any HBCU you'd like."

Tonight, July 16, Tom Joyner heads to CNN to talk with evening talk show host Piers Morgan.
