On Oct. 1, Urban ID Media in association with the Brooklyn Borough President’s Office and Our Times Press kicked off the inaugural Brooklyn’s Best Honors.  Hosted by City Councilmember Robert E. Cornegy, the festive affair took place at Brooklyn Burger & Brew Co. in Bedford Stuyvesant.  

“It’s an honor to present these awards to individuals, whom I personally know and to my new friend Marie Yolaine Eusebe who is doing great work beyond Brooklyn,” said Cornegy, who presented honorees with citations.  Honorees also received proclamations from Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.

“It is a privilege to be acknowledged by Brooklyn Best Honors.  This award truly encourages me and inspires me to do more,” said Eusebe, whose Brooklyn-based nonprofit company, Community2Community, continues to provide aid and assistance to Haiti.
