This site features my pictures and videos of Vincent D'Onofrio in New York City beginning with my first meeting with him at Joe's Pub on July 22, 2010. Vincent is currently filming the final eight episodes for Season 10 of "Law and Order:Criminal Intent" in NYC. He also has several films due to be released this year and will be directing his next film "Johnny and Me" later this year. Feel free to leave comments and to follow along. Enjoy!

Alberto Acevedo's Team for the 3K Walk for Autism Awareness on June 2, 2012
We're participating in the Central Park Challenge once again this Saturday, June 2, 2012 for YAI/NIPD. So far we've raised $571.00 as a team for autism awareness and to benefit programs for children and adults with autism offered by YAI. As you know, my younger brother Alberto was diagnosed with autism at age 2, back when little was known about autism and few programs or services were available. Forty years down the road, a lot has changed. Alberto attends the Brooklyn Day Services Program run by YAI/NIPD and has become a prolific and talented artist and photographer. Looking back, it's hard to believe that my parents were once advised to have my brother institutionalized right after he was diagnosed. Good thing they were smart enough, not to mention stubborn enough, not to heed this wrongheaded advice.
Please help support our walk team for this year's CPC by visiting our page at http://support.yai.org/site/TR/Events/CPC2012?px=1001881&pg=personal&fr_id=1130 to make a donation. Thanks to my friends and family members who have already sponsored us. Any amount is appreciated and will help us meet our goal of $1000.00.
For more information about YAI/NIPD programs and services, including the YAI Autism Center, day habilitation, recreational, residential and medical services, respite, the YAI Art Gallery, early intervention, parental support and education workshops and sibling support, go to www.yai.org.
