Until next week ... kisses
A small group gathered at the office of Sen. Bill Perkins in the Harlem State Office Building to honor Robert Smalls III
It’s been over a century since public health pioneer Lillian Wald first provided charitable care for a mother and her baby on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The organization that she founded, the Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY), will once again celebrate Wald’s work and the work of the thousands of nurses and other dedicated VNSNY workers who have followed in her caring footsteps through today.
It’s almost here! Thanksgiving, that is, one of the most celebrated holidays in America, as everyone stops to give thanks. I know I am thankful—so thankful that I don’t know where to begin—but I just know I am. City Harvest, known worldwide for providing food for those most in need of a meal, has begun rolling in the turkeys. Dedicated to feeding the hungry, City Harvest has partnered with various agencies around the city to ensure there’s always a meal available so that no one should have to go hungry.
Happy belated Veterans Day to all of the veterans. I find this, along with Memorial Day, to be one of the year’s most solemn holidays, a time to really reflect and give thanks to all of those who are committed to serving our country. With the world in a constant state of chaos, now more than ever, Americans must be mindful of the sacrifice veterans make to protect our lives, freedoms and the pursuit of happiness.
I am so in awe of the marathon runner
I’ve decided that it’s not too early to get started with watching a little football
The socialite wedding of the year occurred between Candice Sherrie Cook and Harry Simmons over the Columbus Day weekend
Now that we are in the middle of the fall social season, events are happening everywhere. Take the Greater New York Chapter of the Links, for example
It won’t be long before the beautiful Indian summer weather we’ve been enjoying will give way to a chill, because the smell of fall is already in the air. There’ll be one good rain, and the leaves will turn to yellow, orange and red as witches, ghosts and goblins prepare for their favorite annual run on Halloween.
The beginning of October has brought beautiful weather, with days so lovely that it is hard to believe the rest of the world is at war. It is sometimes hard to imagine that the devastation, suicide bombings, genocide and other frightening atrocities that fill the daily news are actually occurring when one looks up at the blue skies, feels the warmth of the fall sun and enjoys the city. The classiest new restaurant to open of late has to be Barawine. You know something is going on because on any given evening, and especially on the weekends, there is always a bustling crowd. While I would love to paint a picture of how decorous the interior is with its wine bottle-lined walls and how perfect the seating is for intimate conversations, this is one you have to see for yourself.
