  It took more than 8 1/2 hours but the fire at Notre Dame is finally out. I’ve never been to Paris, but I’ve always wanted to go. A bucket list kind of thing. People who have visited speak with such excitement about the Cathedral of Notre Dame, its beauty and history and the amazing artwork. The video coverage was horrifying. Through the scaffolding, the flames were whipping large and everywhere. I can’t imagine what being a Parisian must have been like while this was...

For those of us in the Northeast, it was in the air today. We’ve flirted with the change in weather a few times over the last few weeks, but today the thermometer hovered around 75 degrees. That got me thinking about summer – and the beach. I’m a big fan of the beach and a book. A day like today reminds me that time of year is just around the corner. It also brings back that back in school feeling knowing that summertime is coming. Do you remember that? How exciting it...

  I just had the flu. I haven’t had the flu in years. Actually, the last time I had the flu was the year before I started taking a flu shot. Yes, I admit there were years back then when I guess I thought I was invincible. And then the flu smacked me in the forehead, and I haven’t made that decision again. Seriously, I remember that my partners pretty much tied me down to make me take the shot the following year. But nonetheless I just had the flu. The moral of my story tho...

  It was an experience that exemplified what we say every day in Gotham. Last week, I was on the LIRR with my head buried in my phone – oh, what a surprise. But as the conductor came by, the woman sitting across from me realized that she had left her wallet at home. Not only did she not have her train pass, but she didn’t have a penny. Haven’t we all experienced that feeling? It’s awful. So, I took out my wallet and told the conductor that I would pay her fare. The wom...

I remember when my daughter left for sleep away camp. We all stressed about the limits on phone calls. I remember (like it was yesterday) the day of the “first” camp phone call. We were all anxious, and it went so fast. Hardly enough time to even catch a breath.   Now, Jaclyn is a world traveler. Over the last few years she has spent months at a time in countries half way across the world. Last week, she left for India to spend close to four months working at an NGO i...

  I can’t believe I just said that . . . It’s been a less than white winter. We have seen so little snow in New York this season that it seems to be a kind of low snow record. We have seen so little snow that school districts across the city jumped to close for a snow day. So, when the forecast predicted a bit of a storm Sunday night into Monday, I was kind of excited. We settled in Sunday night watching for the snowflakes to start falling. It had felt like snow all day...

  My husband might call this an addition to my ever growing “book of useless information.” I was reading the other day about the importance of salt in history. Yes, salt – that condiment that goes great with French fries. Apparently, in ancient and medieval times, salt was in important form of currency. Great trades took place in the form of salt, given the significance to food preparation and preservation. Salt was so valuable it seems that Roman soldiers were often a...

  There was a crowd on the platform but the train was sitting in the station with the doors open. It was obvious that something was going on inside one of the cars since handfuls of MTA workers were hovering inside and around. No one seemed particularly anxious but something bad was going down.     Soon, we learned that there was a passenger on the train in need of assistance. A woman was passed out on the bench and was clearly in distress. One irate New Yorker on the platf...

    Here goes my annual tradition. I’m not a huge football fan but I watch the Super Bowl every year, mostly for the commercials (and the half time show). I tried to come up with my top five commercial list -- but I wound up with six. So here goes! My 2019 Superbowl most memorable commercial list in no particular order.     1. T Mobile: The multiple commercials with cute texting exchanges were clever. I particularly liked the one where a daughter is talking to her dad who i...

  We are having a new member orientation today. We haven’t had one in a while and I am looking forward to it.     At these sessions we get to talk about Gotham history and lore and what we have learned about how members can maximize their Gotham experience. We know that Gotham is big and there are so many opportunities to make new friends but that can be overwhelming. We started doing these sessions years ago to try to share some tips for getting the most out of Gotham.   ...
