Downtown Calling

In the late 1970s, the “greatest city in the world” was teetering on the edge of total chaos. A failed economy, crime and en mass housing corruption gave way to a city in crisis. Yet out of the economic and social strife that held the “Big Apple” hostage, a family of homegrown cultures that would forever change the world began to emerge. Downtown Calling not only documents, in detail, the evolution of New York City’s fertile music and art subculture during this period, but how its collective output continues to play a prominent, driving role in the international fashion, art and music industries today.

Brooklyn's Finest

In the course of one chaotic week, the lives of three conflicted New York City police officers are dramatically transformed by their involvement in a massive drug operation in Brooklyns Finest, a searing new crime drama from acclaimed director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day).

Burned out veteran Eddie Dugan (Golden Globe®-winner Richard Gere) is just one week away from his pension and a fishing cabin in Connecticut. Narcotics officer Sal Procida (Oscar® nominee Ethan Hawke) has discovered theres no line he wont cross to provide a better life for his long-suffering wife and seven children. And Clarence Tango Butler (Oscar® nominee Don Cheadle) has been undercover so long his loyalties have started to shift from his fellow police officers to his prison buddy Caz (Wesley Snipes), one of Brooklyns most infamous drug dealers. With personal and work pressures bearing down on them, each man faces daily tests of judgment and honor in one of the worlds most difficult jobs.

When NYPDs Operation Clean Up targets the notoriously drug-ridden BK housing project, all three officers find themselves swept away by the violence and corruption of Brooklyns gritty 65th Precinct and its most treacherous criminals. During seven fateful days, Eddie, Sal and Tango find themselves hurtling inextricably toward the same fatal crime scene and a shattering collision with destiny.

The film captures the volatile and deadly world of one of New Yorks most dangerous precincts through the eyes of the men and women pledged to protect and serve, as they face the wrenching choices that make them Brooklyns Finest.

Icon A5

The Icon A5. An amphibious light sport aircraft that you can park in the garage thanks to its folding wings. The carbon-fiber airframe on this little two-seater is lighter than aluminum and stronger too! Which you’ll appreciate when you plow through a flock of geese. The 100 hp engine tops out at around 120 mph and will haul you and a passenger up to 10,000 feet and as far as 350 miles on one tank. When you’re ready to land, you can put her down on solid ground or water. All that’s left to do is fold it up and tow it home.
