Visit City Island, NYC

Attraction

City Island is on the western end of Long Island Sound, just south of Pelham Bay Park, looks like the illegitimate child of Nantucket and Hunts Point Avenue. It contains what is probably the city’s densest concentration of yacht clubs, and seafood restaurants. The Nautical Museum is in a nineteenth-century building that used to be a public school. Many of the museum’s exhibits pertain to local nautical history. Oyster farming was invented on City Island, back in the eighteen-thirties. Later, the island’s economy was dominated by boatbuilding and sailmaking.

Timing is Everything!

Timing is everything for electronic messaging and sometimes it goes to the back burner.
The Subject, Context, and Kiss are important.

Needless to say, if you need a reply ASAP, you're better off calling. Similarly, be conscientious about the recipient who may be swamped under work or -- even worse -- on vacation? In those instances, follow-ups aren't going to be effective, regardless of how flawlessly crafted.

POLAR VORTEX

News

If you think its' cold in the Northeast, think again. The weather warnings are dire: Life threatening wind chills. Historic cold outbreak. Why so cold? They call it The Polar Vortex which is expected to send freezing North Pole air down to the U.S., funneling it as far south as the Gulf Coast.

Prepare to bundle up to wear multiple layers to deal with the cold temperatures, for school snow closings, treacherous commutes punctuated by blizzard conditions, more slippery roads, and last but not least....Fender benders.
