:A HOME

I have had the pleasure of calling Yonkers home for the past 10 years, some of the best years of my life. Years that saw new and old friends come and go. Friends that either way, will forever have a place in my heart. It is the place that I spent the best and worst of my 20’s and than one that ushered in my 30’s. I found my wife here (well sort of) and conceived my son.  I can’t wait to show him the place along the waterfront where I proposed to his mom. After four different addresses, finding my second family, and starting one of my own it’s time to call another city home.

To everyone who has helped make so many memories here and those who helped us turn our condo (and kitchen) into our home, thank you so much!  We are looking forward to having you all over to our new place!

ps. If you are looking for an amazing Realtor please let me know.  I have her to thank for the amazing photos and for putting up with us while we looked for the perfect place!

My wife and I feel very lucky. Having taken the last train out of Yonkers on Sunday, we have been holed up in a few different hotels this week watching the devastation around us.

All of the pictures/ videos in this post were taken by my friend and fellow board member Dan (he is the guy knee-deep in the flood water with the giant muscles).

We are very fortunate that we personally didn’t suffer any damage, as the first floor of our building is completely destroyed. Thanks to the efforts of Dan and a few other guys who help run our building we have also managed to get back on our feet pretty quickly. We walked in and one of our doormen was filling up a bowl with candy surrounded by destroyed floors and walls. It’s hard to believe this is what our lobby looked like a few days ago.

So with half of Manhattan still in the dark and the devastation that parts of Queens and New Jersey are still experiencing we are very grateful that this scene outside of our building didn’t turn into something much worse.

Good news is all that water didn’t take our car into the Hudson as I predicted in my last post.

Thanks to all of our family and friends for all the texts and emails. Our thoughts are with everyone else.

:RECREATION PAVILION POSTER

At our doorstep, the Hudson River Pier is one of the most iconic landmarks in the City of Yonkers. Now home to X2O, the Pier has served the city since 1848. The restaurant is one of the most successful revitalization/ renovation projects I have ever seen and the food is great too! The inspiration for this poster came from the idea that the pier has and continues to serve as the front door to the city.

Woke up this morning with an inspiration to create a ‘Yonkers’ poster series.  Not sure for what, but this is my first one.  What do you think?
