Beautiful Panama

I just came back from visiting friends in Panama and was amazed by the beauty and diversity of the country. It seems to have everything…old world charm, rich history, modern architecture, exciting night life, beautiful suburbs… to mountains, tropical forests, local artisans and a palm tree lined Pacific Ocean coastline to die for. We experienced it all!

Historical Newport RI

Newport Rhode Island is one of the most beautiful places to visit. It is rich in history, boasting the highest number of surviving Colonial buildings in the US (according to Wiki) and was founded in 1639.

Aspen Art Museum, Colorado

911 Museum NYC

My annual dedication to honoring the victims from 911, included a visit to the 911 Museum, located on the actual site of where the twin towers once resided. It was a humbling experience to walk the foot print of these buildings, viewing the remains of the steel footings that have been preserved, and see bent pieces of steel and structural pieces.

Dream Home & Hunter Douglas

A 5400 sq ft penthouse had been fully decorated with merchandise from area businesses. Breathtaking views of the City to the Sound are seen from the floor to ceiling windows on the 19th floor.

Indian Summer

The weather is still great in the Fall and there is so much to do outside! We love to go boating in the cooler weather on the Hudson river, near where we live and work. the water may be too chilly for swimming but the sun is still warm and restaurants such as Pier 701…
