    AUSTIN — Community gardens and urban farms might have an easier time getting the water they need after the city changed its fire hydrant policy. The mid-summer changes reduce some of the barriers that have prevented many urban growers from using city water for much of the season. The previous rules, introduced in the winter, made it so community gardens were required to pay hundreds of dollars for the equipment and installation necessary to apply for a permit to tap into the hydrants. They came with headaches for gardeners: Even after a community garden in Humboldt Park did all that, they heard nothing from the city for weeks and relied on a neighbor’s water to care for their plots.

    A convicted sex offender who has been arrested more than 100 times — including three busts this year for which he was released pending trial — was finally held on bail Wednesday at his Manhattan Criminal Court arraignment for randomly knocking an elderly woman into a fire hydrant. Judge Paul McDonnell called Rashid Brimmage, 31, “a career criminal” and ordered him held on $50,000 cash or $100,000 insurance company bond. The judge, lawyers and defendant all appeared by Skype for the virtual arraignment due to the coronavirus pandemic. Brimmage, who faces one count of second-degree assault, appeared on a monitor that wasn’t visible from the gallery. Assistant District Attorney Courtney Razner said Brimmage shoved 92-year-old Geraldine to the ground as he passed her on the sidewalk on Third Avenue and East 16th Street at about 3:30 p.m. on Friday. She suffered a laceration to her head. “He’s a violent predicate...
    Despite the fact that he has reportedly been arrested between 60-100 times, thanks to bail reform, a registered sex offender was out free walking on Third Avenue in the Gramercy Park area of New York City last Friday, when he decided to shove a 92-year-old woman down, causing her to hit her head on a fire hydrant. The attack was caught on surveillance video. As the suspect, whom CBS New York identified as 31-year-old Rashid Brimmage, walked away, he looked back at the woman but did nothing to help her. The woman, whom NBC New York identified only as “Geraldine,” said, “When they helped me up, I said ‘what happened’ because I didn’t even know what happened. It was completely out of the blue.” She wound up at Mount Sinai Beth Israel hospital. “I can’t believe that someone would do this,” she told CBS New York. After watching the video,...
