Sometimes you have to let go of old things to make room for the new. It can be good to shake things up, change the order of things, take a new path.   I've been listening to Gary Vaynerchuk for at least 8 years, he's a business guy, makes a ton of video and runs a multi million dollar media company. He was inspring for the first 7 and a half, now he distracts me, so I'm letting him go. He still is a great guy, I just don't need him anymore.     It amazes me how much time I c...

Gotham is abundant with wonderful, meaningful opportunities. Yesterday, the Gotham Book Club® hosted Tom Rinaldi, author of The Red Bandanna. Its the story of Welles Remy Crowther, son of our very own Jefferson Crowther and wife, Alison. They were both in attendance. I can't recommend this book more highly, especially the audio version, which is read by Tom, the author. It is a story of how Clark Kent became Superman. It is a story of Miracles. Coincidences. Hope.   In addi...

So I went to the Twitter Trending topics page and the first three topics I saw were:   1. Kyle Schwarber -  had absolutely NO idea who that was, but World Series fans will know that he is an outfielder* that has just been added to the Cubs roster for the games. *originally I called him a pitcher, FK told me he is not.   2. Pablo Picasso - definitely knew who he was. It's his birthday, so the Twitter family was loving him.     3. Colin Powell - Yes, I know who he is too. Tren...

Sometimes I am able recognize the privilege of being connected to something longstanding and wonderful. Now we all have an opportunity to participate in saving a small monument. I am fortunate to call Robin Hirsch a trusted friend. Born in London during the blitz, he ended up opening a cafe in Greenwich Village in 1977. (For more of his fascinating story : his book) Cornelia Street Cafe has provided excellent food upstairs, but more importantly, the performance space downsta...

Two stories of hope in the news and they both center on community. It takes a village. In Tenino, WA a family went on vacation and while they were away their home and truck were vandalized with racial slurs and spray paint. The neighbors cleaned everything up before they got back so that their small children wouldn't see it. The full story and video is HERE.   In Natick, MA similar story. Family went on vacation, while they were gone their rainbow peace flag, put up after the...

...UP! After 12 years in Chelsea, I am downsizing physically and fiscally, so that my business can expand creatively. It continues to amaze me in how tiny a footprint I can run my life.  I am made for Manhattan living and working. My current office is 10x17, my new office is 7x7. My new neighborhood is Madison and 29th, other than the magnificent Shake Shack at 23rd in glorious Madison Square Park, and, of course, Eataly, what other wonders does my new world have? How do yo...

I am rerunning my blog from 11/18/15 because it seems so timely and I had forgotten about  Antoine Leiris. I hope he is staying the course. He is an inspiration. Amid all the anger, the sadness, the hostility, the revenge minded and retaliatory rhetoric, this story from The Independent stands above and beyond. I can't do any better this week: The husband of a woman killed in the Paris attacks has written a touching message to the “love of my life” and promised to raise ...

I have found this to be true for me lately, but not in such a "material" way. As Corey's pal, Robert Zimmerman sings, "Keep your eyes wide, the chance won't come again." We are surrounded by treasures, take time to look around and breathe in all that you see.   From the Huff Post: A blue and white vase that was for years used as a doorstop by a family in Birmingham, central England, turned out to be a rare 18th century Chinese artifact — which sold at auction on Friday for a...

No matter what is going on in your life, a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art will make it better. Its like taking a vacation in your own back yard. Recently voted the BEST museum in the world, finally beating out its chief competitor, the Louvre. There is something for everyone, paintings, photography, arms & armour, Greek sculpture, and the largest collection of Egyptian art in the world. Check out the Temple of Dendur, made famous by "When Harry Met Sally." Current...

So I thought I'd see what was "trending" on Google, so I could write a really up-to-date blog post. Here's what I found. 1. Hamilton Chicago - Tickets are going for $9000. 2. Michael Jackson - Stockpiles of violent porn at Neverland Ranch 3, Lauri Peterson - Never heard of her, but she's on Real Housewives and her son is suspected of attempted murder. 4. Taco Bell Free Taco - Free tacos today (Tuesday) from 2p to 6p None of this seems the least bit relevant to my life and exp...
