An incident reported to me: Standing at the corner of Seventh Avenue and 53rd Street waiting for the light. A man in front is standing off the curb -- in a bike lane. A tandem bike going north on the Avenue (the wrong way) screeches as it glances the pedestrian. The bike stops for an instant, words are exchanged and the bike darts on its way. The pedestrian is momentarily stunned, then recovers and screams after the cyclists, irately yelling; "Watch where you're going you idi...

The other evening, we visited the Museum of Jewish Heritage A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in Battery Park to see the new exhibition on the capture and trial of Adolf Eichmann. The Museum is a special place in a special part of the City. On our way to the exhibition, I found myself before the display describing the plight of the SS St. Louis. In 1939, Nine hundred German Jews departed Hamburg for Havana. While en route, their entry permits to Cuba were revoked and they we...

How do you put 70 people of diverse backgrounds and interests in a room at the Friar's Club for an hour and a half lunch and keep it in the family? Well, that's exactly what Nancy Schess (and all those who attended) did yesterday at a triple meeting of the New York Women's Group, The Bandit Group and the New York Health and Aging Resources Group. It was Gotham at its best. Old business and new business. Old friends and new friends. A great end to the year. And much to look ...

Recent events in Paris bring me back to September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. For several years, beginning in the late 1990's, we visited Paris with friends for a long weekend in December to celebrate Flo and our friend’s birthdays. In those early years, I found Parisians to be less-than-welcoming to Americans. The cause -- whether it was the language barrier or that they didn't care for tourists -- was unclear; however, it always seemed best not to be easily identifie...

The Downtown Marriott in Chicago has a nice bar in the lobby. A great big screen with six different TV screens dominates one side. Six different sporting events on one screen. The bar is a real gathering place. We were sitting at the bar. I am not sure whether we said something or the man sitting next to Flo started the conversation. It's easy to start a conversation at a bar in a hotel. It didn't take long before we learned that the man was visiting Chicago from New J...

Although I am a Mets fan, I routed for the Yankees on Monday night. On Tuesday, I heard the last sportscasts of how the Yankees did and it won't be until next season that I'll have to wait to hear about the Bronx Bombers before hearing the sportscasters talk about my Mets. So here we are with the wild card teams decided and the playoffs are underway with the boys from Queens representing Gotham City. “Let's go Mets!” C'mon Yankee fans, it's not so hard to say and we welcom...

The sign read “No Parking - Friday Midnight - Monday 6am”. She parked on Thursday evening and found a ticket on her windshield on Friday morning. The ticket was issued at 12:06 a.m. on Friday. We all know what Midnight means....or do we? That moment between one day and the next. Lawyers tend to try to avoid confusion -- opting for “11:59 p.m.” or “12:01 a.m.” So, was she right to park and leave the car that Thursday evening?...

I was walking up the aisle from my front row seat at intermission of “Shows for Days” at the Newhouse Theater at Lincoln Center; “Ben, your shirt is open.” (Actually, I was wearing a T shirt under an open shirt.) I looked around and when I focused on Gothamite Richard Fromewick seated several rows up the aisle, I replied that I was thankful that I had a T shirt on at all. I am glad that Rick hadn’t texted me during the first act (saying that he had spotted me) because ea...

It’s not every day that a new species of frog is discovered -- especially in New York City. And it’s not everyone who is related to the person who discovers a new species. So we’re proud of Jeremy and “Rana Kauffeldi”. (There’s some really great coverage -- and cute pictures -- on this discovery. Just google new NYC frog.) Jeremy discovered the new species of frog by accident, in the sense that he wasn't looking for the frog when he heard a frog call and realized that i...
