  As some of my readers know, I am currently on a quest to promote local businesses and merchants in lower Westchester NY.  Westchester retail has come a long way since I was a youngster shopping at the local army and navy.  But local merchants face an uphill climb from big-box creep.  So far the...
  Westchester NY is rich with history and the Historic Hudson Valley is always busy creating events that bring that history to life for adults and children alike. When I was a child, I remember vividly going to Van Cortlandt  Manor during the holiday season.  It was an event that I looked forward...
An event full of tradition that the whole family can enjoy!  The Nutcracker Ballet is being performed at the White Plains County Center this weekend.  Sponsored by Westchester County Parks as well as the Westchester Ballet Company, this event is always a crowd pleaser.  Kids and adults alike can ...
Sometimes its just nice to pause and enjoy the season.  I was busy today – running around like crazy.   But at dusk I saw a display that I really loved.  This isn’t one of those over-the top displays.  It has charm and grace.  Not too much, not too little.  Its interesting because this particular...
Back in the 1980s there was  a commercial for NY State Lotto.  At then end of the commercial there was the tag line “But you’ve got to be in it to win it!”  Now, I’m not suggesting that we all go out and buy $50 worth of lottery tickets each week – but I do think the line “you’ve got to be in it ...
  Hello everyone – I was lucky enough to have my camera with me for a beautiful fiery sunset on the Hudson.  The sun just seems to set so fast at this time of year.  But it does bring to mind that for those thinking of living on or near the Hudson – that one of the perks is a brand new sunset ser...
Ran some numbers and prepared two market reports.  One about a complex and one about a neighborhood.  Created the charts on EXCEL and the bare bones of the articles.   The reports are in part a response to a client's requiest for more informaiton and in part to update a  couple of web pages.  I r...
The Council of the Arts and the newly rebuilt Mamaroneck Library have teamed up to host a holiday Arts & Crafts fair tomorrow – Dec. 10th.  The Council of the Arts has been making a concerted effort  to promote local artists. Their new logo…LOLA (Love Our Local Artists) pretty much says it all.  ...
  Lower Westchester has  a rich history that dates back to well before the American Revolution.   The Historic Hudson Valley has done a wonderful job of bringing that  history to life – particularly for Halloween where the Legond of Sleepy Hollow lends itself to quite a celebration. However, this...
   A few days ago, I wrote a post “Meet the new real estate agent… same as the old agent.”  Based on the lively comment thread on Active Rain,  some agents misunderstood what I was trying to say.   The article was not meant to imply that all listing agents were the same and that it didn’t matter ...
