The Believe in a Healthy Newark (BHN) Initiative will develop Impact Teams that will focus on three areas of health relevant to the Initiative’s target population – the residents of the South and West Wards of Newark. These three areas include: Healthy Homes, Adverse Childhood Experiences, and Food and Fitness.

Collaborating
for long-term healthy living
in Newark.

BHN will utilize a collective impact approach that will allow them to identify common measures, develop common interventions, and use assessments of their success to modify and strengthen their initiatives. These areas closely align with the interests and expertise of steering committee members, and it is expected that this work will result in demonstrable improvements of certain health measures enumerated in the County Health Rankings data for Essex County.  rwj_logo2

Check out “My Winter Walkabout” with Cynthia Kirk!

March 5, 2016

In NYC, on the Highline, and to several art galleries,
to a coffeeshop and a restaurant,
and to a Broadway play

On March 3rd, the birthday of dear Jim Leisy

Cynthia Kirk

I took the train into NYC, from Millburn, for the first time. Direct to midtown—very civilized. She came up from Fulton St., where she had gone to the TKTS booth to score us tickets to see The Crucible, on Broadway. We rendezvoused (so much easier, to coordinate, with mobile phones!) on 8th Ave. & 30th St. We walked over to the Highline, and then down it, to 17th St. We stopped at Caffe Bene for a respite. Then we checked out the lobby of the awesome building that is now the Highline Hotel. Then we went up to the Gagosian Gallery (522 West 21st Street) for an exhibition of 31 very large/interesting photographs by Gregory Crewdson, whose work both Cyn & Jim had seen/appreciated.

Check out some of my business cards when I was at Salomon!

October 1, 2015

Starting at One New York Plaza (in 1986), then to 55 Water Street, then to Two New York Plaza, all in a row, downtown, on the water near South Ferry.

Salomon Brothers Inc

See the building address, here?! We moved the world headquarters (somewhat) uptown. (Over many weekends!)

Years later that building came crumbling down. (Nobody I know was hurt. [I did lose one (ex-Solly) friend, who was at Cantor FitzGerald (at the top of one of the twin towers) in 2001.]) And it has been rebuilt.

Check out “The International Collaboration Project”!

Francisco Diaz & Deb Young make photographs, in an entirely online relationship–Skype-ing for hours on end! Their creations are surrealistically realistic (realistically surrealistic?). They have a refreshingly new/decidedly unique point of view/style.

E.g., not only were they not together, in this shot (or ever, in person!), I would further guess that neither of them were ever captured in front of this facade! So, what IS “real”? [These photo-graphic-like cotton-candy-spun layer-cake-built pixel-sculptures? Sure!]
