My mom would have been 62 years old today. That sounds so young for the amount of time that’s passed since I’ve seen her. This letter she left me was actually written when she went in for a routine surgery about 12 years before she died. The postscript always makes me smile, it says, in part: “Be patient with people. Everybody might not be used to your ways, like the clothes you like.”
Gothamist turned 6 years old today! We celebrated at ReBar. Michael Shannon showed up, but, not for us.
I still remember the first time I met Jake at The Room in 2004, where I asked him if I could head up the Arts & Entertainment section that didn’t exist yet. And I still feel really lucky to be working there with such a lovely group of people! (Awww.)
