Gotham City Gazette
Summer 2014

While visiting a tavern called Franklin Park Restaurant in Harrison, NY, with a friend recently, the Tavern was crowded with World Cup followers and seafood lovers. About three-quarters of an hour later while eating a wonderful seafood dish, the owner broke out in the song “God Bless America” and got all of the patrons to sing along. Realizing how joyful and appropriate it is to continue the infectiousness of this Tavern owner, I give you the following link to mark the theme of this edition of the Gotham City Gazette and for your enjoyment.

Announcing the formation of the Social Media Group

Join Marc Halpert, former Network of the Year and GC of several groups as he forms the newest platform for Gotham, the Social Media group. Marc created the group to bring together the NYC metro area’s social media experts around the power of the Gotham lunch table: social media and inbound marketing innovators who stretch to do new and exciting things in business. These are resources to the business community, and to each other, some of the best of the best. They will meet again after the summer, when the group will gel around those that “get” Gotham. Contact Marc if you are interested to learn more by looking up his web profile.
