Providing Food and Hope Post-Sandy #MealsPerHour

While working with Toyota and Food Bank For New York City, as a sponsored Meals Per Hour Ambassador, I was given a bird’s eye view of Sandy’s destruction and its aftermath. It was as if we were viewing homes made of straw and they could not withstand the Big Bad Wolf. But, this was no […]

EXTREME NYC Parking (Video)

When I first learned how to drive I was terrified to drive in Manhattan. The yellow cabs are BEASTS. They stop short. Swerve at a moments notice and will cut you off to grab a fare! Yet, driving does NOT compare to parking. It doesn’t matter if you live in the Bronx, Brooklyn or Manhattan, […]
