Tribal Networking

It's Better to Give Than Receive, But What Goes around Comes Around!™

To forge a virtually cost-free partnership steeped in the spirit of fraternity (or sorority as the case may be) that goes beyond matters of immediate concern. This spirit is best served by fostering a climate characterized by Gotham's mantra. Said another way we are all non-salaried, non-commissioned sales people for each other! Thus, we seek to create a family/tribal environment stimulating mutual growth: business, social, creative, intellectual, artistic, charitable or otherwise. Our endeavors should enrich each participant through altruistic acts undertaken with a genuine concern for the welfare of our fellow networkers and the world.

We bring together service-oriented professionals in complementary fields to share not only contacts, but also ideas and resources. Learn more

We traveled last weekend to the Berkshires to stay with old friends. It was our first visit in two years. So we had a lot of catching up to do. One of our friends' tongue in cheek "House Rules" is "Gossiping is encouraged, during your entire stay". Well, lots has happened in that 2 year interval and boy did we gossip. I must admit I love to gossip and have been accused of lacking a filter and being unable to keep a secret. Nonetheless, my fiddling (my college nickname w...

          Last night we were invited to a sneak preview of Night Lights, Wave Hill's newest art/music/light show at the aquatic garden, met the artist and saw the projections: his cool interpretation of the glorious Wave Hill gardens onto the multi-colored structures. Looking forward to returning on a night soon (opening 4/24 thru 5/24). Details and tix see Well worth going to Riverdale!

                  (I posted this message on Fredslist last night but it really belong on the Gotham Wall as well so please indulge me) I - and all of Gotham - lost a very dear and good friend Thursday, April 9. Jack Friedman, executive director of the Queens Chamber of Commerce, passed away earlier today just days short of his 56th birthday, this Sunday when many will gather in his memory to celebrate his life of giving. Jack's funeral takes place, Sunday, April 12, 12:30 p.m. At Parkside Memorial Chapels 98-60 Queens Boulevard, Rego Park 11374 (Updated from Fredlist post) Jack's brother in-law, Steve Denkberg shared that Shiva will commence after the funeral on Sunday at Jack's house (email me if you need the address) until 9:00 p.m. It will continue on Monday through Thursday 2:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., and conclude on Friday 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (also updated since my Fredslist post) Since I received inquiries in and out of Gotham, Steve advised that people can contribute in Jack's memory to The American Diabetes Association and/ or The National Kidney Foundation. (end updates) Jack and I have known each other some three decades. His most distinguishing feature -- and I am sure more than a few others will attest to this -- putting family, friends, colleagues and the public before himself. Before he joined the chamber he took a job that I had turned down at the recommendation of the previous job holder. Jack took the gig and tamed the elected (at least for as long as he worked there). I personally recruited Jack to serve as a trustee of my (Northeast Queens) Jewish Community Council knowing he could be the president who could succeed our common friend Jeff Gurdus (also of blessed memory); Jack performed admirably. Jack was the field general of my lone race for public office (that I try not to recall); its lack of success was not on him. We both rebounded the following year each gaining election to NYC's premier Community School Board serving district 26 in 1989. I called it doing time; it was several night meetings a week. For some reason Jack chose to endure it until legislature abolished the boards and impose mayoral control. I thought I took the smarter route serving one term. Jack stayed on and colleagues made him President and he got locked up in that no-pay all give position for five years until until they shut down the school boards. Of course no respite for this guy, he helped the BBYO that our daughter were active in and Bellerose Jewish Center exists today because of his smarts and ability to make sound deals. Lately we served together on The board of a senior agency, SNAP, where this year we recruited two new Gotham members - Susan Cohen and Mindy Stern - to join us on the board. Jack introduced me to Tom Grech who is now a member of Gotham Green. I brought Jack a few years back to Gotham Towers. He joined our tribe and has been an invaluable connector for so many of us. Gotham enjoys a nice partnership with the chamber. When I attended a chamber committee meeting it was rare that we did not meet after in his office to chat on not just chamber matters but politics -- Jack was perhaps the penultimate political junkie, family and music -- his was into Springsteen and Southside Johnny the way I love Poco and John Fogerty; we attended a Bruce show at the Meadowlands of course, and a few summer back The Good Rat. We never coined a name like the Travelin' Wilburys for our drives long or short but I know I'll miss the chats. And through all that he was a good dad and husband. Jack, we miss you friend.
