Disaster relief failure: lack of appropriate clothing distribution

FEMA failure: lack of appropriate clothing distribution My recent experience volunteering with FEMA at the Coney Island distribution center was largely positive. However, I was deeply disturbed by one particular observation. Amidst all the standardized relief supplies (much-needed MREs and water alongside clean up kits designed for single family homes that went to people in high-rise public housing), it pained me to hear requests for things that FEMA was short on: warm clothes and...

FEMA distribution experience: one volunteer’s tale

FEMA distribution experience: one volunteer’s tale I had survivor’s guilt after Hurricane Sandy. During the storm, I sat nervously in my little Midtown Manhattan apartment with plenty of good food, fun neighbors, wine and of course my little dog, Charlie. When all was said and done, the most excitement we had in the ‘hood was the crane collapse. Seven days after the Hurricane Sandy landed, I was frustrated.

Seven ways to celebrate Mother’s Day when you’re pregnant

Get a massage, get a facial, get a mani/pedi. I’ve been to this little gem of a find in Midtown East, Lilly & Raul. It’s nothing terribly fancy, but a 60-minute, very effective massage was $45. If you’re the dad and it’s ok to celebrate before the baby is born, consider giving the...

Would you go sailing in this weather?

Would you go sailing in this weather? Well, we did…and got super lucky. My friend Bob has a steel-hull tank of a sailboat and there we were in New York Harbor with threatening clouds on two sides.
