Local Media Help Local Charities

Posted: Updated:

Fox 29's Chris O'Connell was among 10 local media personalities invited to play in on the new Team Vick Field in Hunting Park on Saturday.

The new field is home to the Hunting Park Aztecs football teams. NRG Energy of Princeton, NJ hosted a media game and donated a total of $20,000 to the player's favorite charities.

The company donated $1,000 to "The Friends of Alexander Deihl" foundation which raises money for families of chronically ill children.

The company also helped fund the $1.4 million state of the art field renovation. For years, the Aztecs were unable to play games on their old field because of unsafe conditions.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
