I met Daniel Stein at an opening reception at an art gallery. He was (in my way—just kidding!) at the buffet table. I confided to this stranger, “Wow, I was hoping for crackers & cheese, but these fabulous-looking canapes are awesome!” He thanked me. “Excuse me?!” I retorted. “Oh, I’m the caterer; my partner is in the kitchen!” So I went right to Sylvia Becker, to gush further…

Well, they’re both also as handsome as they are sweet-hearted—and those qualities are commensurate to the well-matched excellent front-of-house/back-of-house skills that this dynamic duo provide…

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.
