Hi everyone, I'm late to this reblog marathon.  Gail has done everything possible to work with BOA to save her home.  No one could have tried harder to make things work out.  In light of her family situation with her husband so desperately ill, one would think the bank might see it as positive PR...

Its been a while since I’ve posted a blog, because  with so many things happening in both real estate – which is starting to pick up big time – and for Fotos On The Fly.  I’ve found myself busier than usual. First – for the basics.  The show is opening on Friday Feb 1, 5-7 PM  at The Water Cooler...

Over the past several years, White Plains NY has created a new New Years Eve tradition.  Dubbed "mini-me" Manhattan during the building boom  (aka real estate bubble) of the early 200o's, the city started its own version of the Times Square ball drop followed by fireworks.  I rather enjoy the eve...

Christmas lights are everywhere in Westchester this time of year - from the spectacular to the gaudy to the very simple.   So I'm putting up a very simple display today to show how simple sometimes is better than over-the-top. This is a balcony from a pre-war building in downtown White Plains NY....

About a week ago I was kindly invited by a resident to take some photos at a coop complex in downtown White Plains called the Broadlawn.   The pre-war complex is know for its subtle use of white lights in its courtyard during the holiday season.     At first I thought this would be 100% color pho...

Sometimes when trying to show off the character of a neighborhood, I pick an unusual focal point that is a bit "outside the box".  I took this photo at dusk about  a week ago and the reason I like it so much is that it really is soooooo NYC.  It shows a roof top garden  (so typical of the Upper W...

The photo above is a scene that will be history in a fairly short amount of time.  I took it of the “old” or “current” Tappan Zee Bridge from the River Walk right at the border of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.  For those who are interested, the Hudson Harbor complex was slightly south and to the l...

ics: Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Retail in Westchester, Scarsdale, Tarrytown, White Plains We should all forget Black Friday – that’s big-box day.  Those who care about this country and their local economy should put their emphasis on Small Business Saturday.  The day we celebrate truly LOCAL business...

Topics: Building/Planning, Current Issues in Real Estate, Larchmont The other day I was in Larchmont NY – it was 11 days after the storm.  I had steered clear of the area around the Larchmont Manor for fear of just being a thorn in the side of  workers trying to clear debris, cope with flooding a...

  Before I utter one more word, I will say the obvious – the devastation of Hurricane Sandy has been overwhelming. Three branches of my family have strong roots on Staten Island and I also have a 90-year-old aunt who resides in New Jersey.  The loss of life, livelihoods and life savings is unfath...
