When Innovative Art Meets Traditional Surroundings

(1) Comments | Posted April 25, 2016 | 1:52 PM

An older woman in the art scene once told me, "How we experience art is as important as the art itself." After witnessing high ceilings and transformative décor in one of the most traditional areas of New York City, I had quite an experience indeed.

With many artists today finding...

What I Know About Love Now That I'm In My 20s

(96) Comments | Posted February 14, 2012 | 7:34 AM

Somewhere along the way, my quarter-centennial crept up on me. 25 is paradoxical -- you know you're still so, so young, that you still have so much to learn, that there is so much ahead. And yet, by this age some people have done insanely impressive things -- founded companies,...

The Night I Met Louis C.K.

(22) Comments | Posted March 13, 2011 | 9:02 AM

Two weeks ago, Louis C.K. concluded his eight-show run at Carolines in New York City, and I was lucky enough to snag tickets to one of the sold-out performances. After going to the show, it was obvious why tickets sold as fast as they did.

I have been a...

The Luck of Being Let Go

(8) Comments | Posted February 1, 2011 | 1:17 PM

Each year after New Year's Eve has passed, I take a huge sigh of relief -- it's the end of all the holiday chaos and finally time to relax. Some reflect on the past year to figure out if they're indeed wiser or just a survivor of life's tribulations. For...

My Night With the Third Wheel Band

(1) Comments | Posted January 4, 2011 | 12:03 PM

It was a freezing night in Brooklyn last month as I turned the corner towards Bar 4. A handsome guy with suspenders and a slight Southern twang was talking to someone outside and opened the door for me. Little did I know that guy, Ryan Langlois, was a member of...

Some People Plan, Others Move to New York City

(3) Comments | Posted December 6, 2010 | 12:39 PM

Frank Sinatra said, "If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere." Not until this year did I really understand not only what he meant, but that he was right.

I had a plan. Of course, it's changed over the years. But for the most part, I...

When Where We've Been Meets Where We're Going

(0) Comments | Posted September 20, 2010 | 10:55 PM

The opening line from a favorite song of mine goes, "What will be your story now?" -- A question that floats in front of every sip of coffee or morning walk of mine.

It seems we're all writing our own stories as we go along, and for years my...

The Romantic Price of Being a New Yorker

(1) Comments | Posted August 31, 2010 | 12:48 PM

New York City is not for everybody. The rent is ridiculous, the apartments are tiny, and with the crowds, it's not exactly a place for the claustrophobic. Yet here we are, the most populated city in the United States. Literally millions are willing to pay seven dollars for a box...

The Charm of the Unexpected

(0) Comments | Posted June 23, 2010 | 11:43 AM

"Let's go out," said my dear friend Mark. After working all day, I really wasn't in the mood, and while begrudgingly getting ready, I thought about canceling a few times.

"We don't have any plans though," I said to him.

"I know, but it's Friday night! Let's just see...

An Exquisite Fear

(1) Comments | Posted June 7, 2010 | 5:54 PM

I always hated it when people said things like, "just go with the flow" or "whatever happens, happens." In the past, I've graciously ignored it because after all, no one actually feels that way. We're more or less trying to control as much as we can, perhaps deluding ourselves into...
