I did not expect to follow last week’s blog welcoming the return of Mets baseball tomorrow. A Newsday article yesterday, a discussion at the Gotham Brad Scherer Happy Hour Friday eve and an email exchange with Mr. Title is Vital attorney and fellow tribal member Roy Fenichel induced today’s commentary; Roy even took the exchange to twitter after I shared my preferred Mets lineup. This column blossomed after I shared to Gotham Sportstalk listserve a nice article (to which Roy ...

I often look back at what I drafted the previous year before I compose the instant blog.  Peaking at that 2020 commentary really focused on the contrast in how we live today, still under a Pandemic but hopefully vaccinated, or on the verge of receiving this protective measure.  Last year – joined by a few friends – I watched a playoff game albeit not featuring my still failing team (at least they rid it of the coach who ought never have been given the reins to that team wrong...

When we selected a new date to announce the Gotham Green Awards® – delayed by the COVID 19 Pandemic and originally planned a week following Earth Day 2020 – I proposed just ahead of Thanksgiving. So as Wednesday’s blogger, Carly Meyer Bentley, shared last week, Gotham held its ceremony last Tuesday, November 17. Eight awardees. Our new Gotham Green® Group Coordinator, Shelley Simpson, posted to our Fredslist list serve her takethis past Friday. Shelley and my co-chairs, Frida...
(Editor’s note:  This blog got superseded by “Ruth” last week in recognition of the passing of the true Wonderwoman)   I enjoy recognizing those who make a difference in our communities and the world.  This explains my involvement in the Gotham Green Awards®.  Established by Gotham City Networking, Inc.® and GOtham GREEN®, the awards recognize people, businesses and organizations that work on environmentally sustainable initiatives and projects. GOtham GREEN® provides a platf...
I generally know the topic of a blog in advance and, today, I expected to urge folks to apply and/or encourage others to apply for the Gotham Green Awards®. Circumstances changed and how. Between dinner and dessert Friday eve, I learned that we lost a veritable national treasure — Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States Ruth Bader Ginsburg – “a jurist of historic stature,” according to Chief Justice John Roberts.   This distinguished American of humble Bro...
Tomorrow often signals to many the end of the summer even though the solstice come a few weeks later. Sitting outside with Shelly before we dined on our deck, she noted how she how Monday would normally mean the end of a summer break many – students and most who work in city schools – enjoy; she also volunteered how that no longer applies to her (Perhaps a topic for a future blog.). With the impact of COVID putting a kibosh on many in-person business gatherings, and other mee...
The phrase titling this blog comes from lyrics in a John Lennon tune. If I just chose the first two words, it recalls the title of The Doors’ second LP, Strange Days, featuring their second hit, “People Are Strange.”   We keep reading how less busy those not working in “critical” aka “essential” functions find themselves. Perhaps. Not here. Since things came to a head one would think some us would have more time. In meetings of my Gotham Network (which hosts this and six othe...
Often my first show of the season involves a Gotham connection. Last year, it was a show at My Father’s Place that Shelly and I attended with Vincent and Susan Russo. Often, The Gotham Battle of the Bands® (“BOTB”) works out as my first show of the year. This year, definitely not to be. Marisa and I take in the Eagles later this month at MSG. A few weeks back I already outlined here the state of my concert plans. Besides the band above influenced by my favorite band Poco and ...
No secret to frequent followers of this blog, and to many (most? All?) who know me how much I enjoy music, especially of a certain genre. Yesterday, I saw a tweet between two City Council Members I know that I think was trying to equate the quality and state of music today to politics today and a comparison to an earlier era. I replied my view that most of the best music with limited exceptions occurred from 1967 though 1974. Earlier last week, I found myself discussing with ...
When I think about the approach of Thanksgiving, I think about more than giving thanks for my family, friends, colleagues and my life. More and more the focus involves giving. I only hope I do enough. The Tuesday that follows Thanksgiving – Giving Tuesday – represents a culmination of giving efforts through Gotham. As Friday’s blogger repeatedly reminds us on Fredslist and various Gotham groups he attends, Gotham’s Holiday Party that eve features the selection of charities th...
