Even though the work was an obvious part of the building presence, NY1 and Adam owner of Bridge Cafe failed to mention it. O well, happy to see it in the news anyways.

Last night i collaborated with several others actors to perform in a home made haunted house (as part of the Novogratz family halloween celebration). Special thanks Tim Haskell (director if Nightmare NYC) for getting me the gig and the Novogratz family for their hospitality! It was to much fun!
"Laid back and unassuming in demeanor, Mackenzie Younger is a quiet storm. Beneath his chill exterior lies a hotbed of artistic know-how. Keeping with his calm demeanor, Young does not feel the need to annotate his artwork with a boisterous speaking voice and an arsenal of grand hand gestures. Simply put, his work does all the talking."

"I have open office hours for students, which I invite you all to partake in … you will see announcements and I hope you will accept my invitation. I’ve met over a hundred students now … which brings me to the close of my convocation address, and the story of one of those students. His name is Mr. Mackenzie Younger, class of 2012. Some of our faculty and staff members are certain to still remember his smile, youthful swagger, and intense passion for the environment. Mackenzie came to visit me at office hours in his senior year; I had met him as a sophomore on Benefit Street. He was wearing a bright, tacky green sports coat in which only he could look cool — and carrying a camera. That story I will save for another day … As a senior, Mackenzie had grown into a strong believer in the importance of art as a way to ground healthy communities and a healthy earth. Improving neighborhoods, growing plants, making art — Mackenzie saw them all as one and the same thing. I was delighted to see on our.risd.edu, RISD’s blog that is now five years young, … about how just a few weeks ago Mackenzie and other NY artists presented Hip Hop Postmortem at Brooklyn Fire Proof. Mackenzie exemplifies the kind of ingenuity and sturdiness and passion for the creative life that was nourished by our ocean. He sat on our Beach, yes we have a beach, and let the waves surround him. And now he is making waves on his own."
