Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.” Unlike Madonna, Leo has changed and his boyish look has matured since his Titanic days; asked about turning 40, he laughed and said, “I feel better than ever. Am I supposed to feel bad about that?” The handsome star defended Baz Luhrmann’s controversial decision to feature Jay-Z and Beyoncé on the soundtrack saying, “I thought it was a brilliant choice for Baz to use hip hop as the sort of modern day interpretation of jazz.” Despite the idea of getting hitched.

There’s no business like show business for a lover of New York whose fantasies rang true. Being one of the brightest luminaries of the New York theatre scene has brought singer/actress Judy Kuhn jand her fans oy for over two decades. Now more of “All This Happiness” is headed their way this month with the release of Judy’s CD and a show at 54 Below by the same name. I recently sat down with the wonderful and versatile Judy, whose star keeps shining. Her credits range from her recent role in the Stephen Sondheim/James LaPine critically acclaimed musical Passion to singing the title role in the movie Pocahontas and Pocahontas ll. I am very pleased to showcase Judy for our Resident readers. She’s a delight!


Resident June 2013

Resident (R): What does it mean to be a New Yorker? Judy Kuhn (JK): To me it means being openminded, curious, direct, tolerant, and a good neighbor to EVERYONE. Since NY is the most international, multi-cultural city in the world with everyone living on top of each other, it helps to have a little patience too, although I realize this is not a quality many New Yorkers possess. This city has everything to offer so you have to be willing to take it all on. I love living here. It’s hard for me to imagine living anywhere else. R: Where did you grow up – what did you like about it? JK: I was born in NY but raised in a suburb of Washington, DC. It was an interesting time to grow up there during the 60’s and early 70’s. The Vietnam War was going on and the Civil Rights movement. My father was a civil rights lawyer so we went to a lot of marches. I found it exciting and it really politicized me. I was very aware of the big wide world I was living in. R: Where do you live now? JK: I live downtown in TriBeCa in a big loft. We have lived in the neighborhood since 1988. It really feels like home to me even though it has completely changed since we moved here. R: How did you get into show business? JK: I have always loved the theater. My parents took me to see a lot of plays and musicals when I was growing up. I think I had a fantasy about becoming an actor, but wasn’t sure if I was cut out for the business. I lived in Boston the year after I graduated from college and was unsure of what I wanted to do with my life. At the end of that year, I decided to do summer stock just for fun. I had a great time and really loved being in rehearsal and on stage. The people I worked with there encouraged me to move to NY and give the business a try. I thought, if I didn’t do it then, I never would. So I went back to Boston, packed up and moved here in the fall of 1982. I started working almost right away. I never looked back! R: What have you been in? JK: I have done so many things in my 30 years in this business. I was Cosette in the original Broadway cast of Les Miserables and I played Florence, the lead in the original cast of Chess. All in all I have done seven Broadway shows, many off-Broadway and regional Sondheim and James Lapine’s Passion at Classic Stage Co. That was one of my favorite things I have ever done. And for you kids out there, I sang the title role in Disney’s Pocahontas! R: What are you working on now? JK: I am about to release a new solo album, my third, entitled All This Happiness on the PS Classics label. The songs are by the songwriters who have had the most songwriting is. They include singer songwriters that



I grew up listening to such as Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits as well as the theater composers whose work has really spoken to me, such as Stephen Sondheim and Adam Guettel to name only a few. It’s a very eclectic mix. Collectively the album is a very personal meditation on love and happiness. The arrangements are by my music director Dan Lipton who plays piano, and we have Damien Bassman playing hand percussion and Peter Sachon playing cello. It’s an unusual twist on the jazz trio. To celebrate the release of the album we are doing two shows at 54 Below on June 10th and 12th. They should be really fun shows. Then in the fall, I am doing a new musical by Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron called Fun Home at the Public Theater. It will be directed by Sam Gold and has a great cast. I have been doing workshops over the past year or so. It’s a beautiful piece based on Allison Bechdel’s acclaimed graphic novel about her family. I am very excited about it. R: Who has been your favorite person to work with? JK: That is a hard one. I have been extremely fortunate in my career, in that I have worked with so many amazing actors and directors that have taught me so much. It would be hard to pick one. After my recent experience working on Passion, I could say John Doyle is my new favorite person to work with. I have not been so challenged and inspired by a director in a long time. I feel like he made me a better actor, and he also happens to be a brilliant director and a wonderful person. R: Describe your sense of style. JK: I guess my style is comfortable. Considering the business I am in, I am not a particularly showy person. I like wearing jeans and T shirts and comfy dresses. My home is full of old furniture - nothing fancy. R: Favorite restaurant in the city? JK: One of my favorite restaurants is Bar Pitti in the West Village. We go there as a family all the time (it’s one of my daughter’s favorites too). Also Marlowe & Sons in Williamsburg. I like comfort food and those places serve food and have atmospheres that make me feel at home. And my favorite thing to do in the city is walk! I don’t think I could ever again live in a city that required me to drive places. R: Any pets? JK: No! I have allergies. It’s the one way our daughter said we failed her. I suppose there are worse things we could have done (or not

Great progress has been made on this, in terms of the European standard and the US standard, and getting these safety standards adopted gives a lot of guidance to other countries who are interested in picking up standards for amusement design, construction and operation. That is a key activity of IAAPA, and over the last year or so I have been responsible for chairing what’s known as the “Governance Task Force.” Not long ago IAAPA was more of an American association with international members.

Dining is a treat at Halkin’s newly-opened landmark restaurant, Ametsa with Arzak Instruction.

The futuristic premise of the cuisine is enhanced by the gold test tubes that dangle from the ceiling. For more casual all day dining with Western classics and comfort food like pastas, sandwiches, steak and salad, the bar at the Halkin is a relaxing and intimate spot to grab a cocktail, quick bite or English tea.

Classical Vienna


Some people look at the world through rose-colored glasses. Johann Strauss may have been looking at the Danube River through sepia-toned lenses. The composer of the “Blue Danube” may have been putting his own spin on a river that could have been blue on Feb. 13, 1867 when the waltz made its debut, but today’s river is a calm and smooth flowing brown. But that does not take the romance away from the famed waterway. Several noted cruise lines have trips that go up and down the river. Our host was Uniworld Cruises, leaving Vienna, home to Strauss, and going downstream to Bucharest over a very relaxing and gentle two week period. Most of the passengers on board were seasoned travelers who had chosen Uniworld because of its reputation for affordable luxury.


The trip started smoothly at Vienna International Airport with quick passage through customs and immigration. Just outside the doors was a young man holding a large sign proclaiming “Uniworld.” Luggage was quickly taken to a comfortable bus and, literally, within minutes the transfer to the ship took off. Cabin assignments and as well, and it wasn’t long before all were able to stretch out in bed and relax for a few minutes. The following morning, after a sumptuous breakfast, an included tour took most of the passengers to see the beautiful city of Vienna. On tap were visits to Mozarthaus, where another famed composer lived and worked. Although the house is sparsely furnished today, you can easily visualize the workspace where the classic composer sat in old-fashioned luxurious surroundings as he put pen to paper creating music that lives through the ages. There are narrow streets and cobblestoned lanes leading off modern boulevards. One leads past the world famous Spanish Riding School, home of the renowned white Lipizzaner stallions. The school, located between Michaelerplatz and Josefplatz, has been on this site since 1729. Prior to that, it was in a wooden arena at Josepfplatz in 1565. The odd name for an institution in Austria came about because the school used Spanish horses for its famed dressage and demonstration work. The horses were trained to strengthen their muscles and take commands quickly, horses. Visitors are welcome during the day when the horses and riders train and for evening performances. For information, contact An alternate tour gave passengers the choice of seeing the those who enjoy the old classics, there was an optional evening tour, The Vienna ConcertThe Sound of Vienna. Perhaps the most interesting tour of all was an optional trip to the beautiful Schonbrunn Palace, home of the Hapsburg dynasty and its most famous member, Maria Therese. The grounds are immense and still as beautifully groomed as if Austrian royalty was in residence today. A walk through the palace brings to life quite vividly the lifestyles of the rich and famous. There were secret passages so that the Hapsburgs would not be disturbed or have to look at servants as their every need was catered to. Empress Maria Therese’s bed is indicative of the huge lifestyle they led and could easily have accommodated the entire Hapsburg clan… at once. The grounds are huge and a visitor can easily spend an entire day going through the schloss (palace) and the surrounding gardens. You can even take a quaint horse-

The downstream current is rapid and the water smooth, combining to produce a gentle ride from Vienna to Bratislava tours and entertainment options on shore,

the same holds true on board ship. Local ethnic entertainers board for an evening’s entertainment. A word to the wise here is to fast for these shows. Bratislava is at once an ancient city and one creeping into the 21st century. There are castles and palaces, apartment buildings that are falling down and modern structures. Most Eastern European cities are faced with replacing what has become known as “Communist chic.” These are buildings put up under Communist rule from the

end of WWII until freedom was restored in 1989 with the fall-off of the dictatorships. The apartment complexes were devoid of any character and were poorly constructed. Slovakia, like most of Eastern Europe, is working feverishly to replace these buildings. It while take awhile, but its efforts are succeeding. One of the most interesting tours in Bratislava is on board what is commonly called “The Little Red Choo-Choo,” red wagons hitched together that brings guests through both old and new sections of the

city. It passes along a boulevard of quaint little cafes and boutiques with a grassy a return once the tour has ended. Although Bratislava’s once thriving Jewish community of WWII, there is a preservation movement afoot and a memorial to the victims adjacent to the old synagogue now represented by a painted façade. A word of caution as you go through Eastern Europe; although most of the countries have

joined the European Union, some of them prefer their old currency as they slide into modern commerce to eventually making the Euro the common trade factor. In Slovakia, many merchants hang on to the koruna instead of the Euro, and dollars are rarely accepted. Be careful about exchanging your money because these local currencies often cannot be exchanged again outside of the country, and you could be stuck with For information on cruises visit:

Straddling the equator, six hundred miles west of Ecuador, this World everybody’s wish list. The sheer beauty of unspoiled nature and wildlife is breathtaking. Celebrities, jetsetters, and all lovers of fascinating locales are captivated by this unique destination. The enchanting islands are famed for their vast number of endemic species, which were studied by Charles Darwin and led to his theory of evolution by natural selection.

Ecuador recognized its ecological treasure and and fauna, a ‘national park’ in 1968. An uninhabited outpost of nature until its accidental discovery in the sixteenth century, the Galapagos has been home to the thirteen main islands with varying landscape and wildlife, receive visitors from around the globe.

One of my favorite things was après snorkeling when we took off our wet suits and hopped into the delightful warm outdoor Jacuzzi. It was quite the social event. We had cold beer and chatted about everything and anything and it was fantastic. One of the guests, a Canadian lady had visited the Galapagos thirty years ago and came back with her family and ninety three year old father in law, who had put the islands on his bucket list. She told me that she enjoyed it just as much now as she did then, and was thrilled that her family could share in this experience. Following the Jacuzzi social hour, we’d take ourselves to the bar lounge in the front of the boat for aperitifs and hors d’oeuvres. Scrumptious empanadas, carnes, shrimp and pizza were washed down with punches or other beverage choices as we watched the sunset’s daily show, a glorious display of gold, orange and azure.

Blissfully relaxing on vacation in paradise is something we all yearn for; I recently discovered how to achieve this fabulous goal in breathtakingly beautiful Cancun, the ultimate vacation destination. It takes a commitment to getting away from it all, challenging yourself to simply being in the moment and even turning off your phone. When you free yourself of all distractions, you will be ready to experience how magical a vacation can be. Cancun International Airport is a short easy plane ride from New York. Located on the southeastern tip of Mexico, beautiful Cancun is surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and the Nichupte Lagoon. It was created as a tourism project by the Mexican government quickly became successful due to spectacular beaches, incredible hotels, exceptional international cuisine, warm year-round climate and the amazing ability of this dazzling modern resort to retain the rich culture and history of the ancient Mayan inhabitants of the area. My hotel was a 15 minute ride from the airport, along the Zona Hotelera on Boulevard Kukulcan. Centrally located, the

The recently opened Maya Museum of Designed by Alberto Garcia Lascurain, it provides a serene setting for over 350 ancient relics in a beautiful modern museum. It is 3,000 feet above sea level to prevent the visitors are expected in the next year. Relics in the museum date back over 14,000 years, including amazing jade masks. The San Miguelito archaeological site is next to the museum, where uncovered Mayan ceremonial ruins can be viewed amongst lush jungle gardens. Tiny, picturesque Isla de Mujeres (Island of Women) was the next destination that I explored on my vacation. Ferries leave every 30 minutes from Puerto Juarez to the island. The ride is less than 20 minutes and allows you to view the electric blue colors of the sea while being serenaded. Isla Mujeres has a slower, small town pace. Homes and stores are brightly painted, small shops display folk art, jewelry, masks and hammocks. Located on the south side of the island, is the best place to experience the local cuisine.

My room was large, with a suite-sized marble bathroom, luxurious amenities, super comfortable bed and best of all, another panoramic views of the oceanfront. Large suites can also be found at the JW. The JW has a 35,000 square foot, three level luxury spa, with views of the ocean and lagoon. This has been designed to soothe and balance your mind, body and spirit. A facial provided even more relaxation in this tranquil setting, where the treatments are Mayan inspired.

My next adventure at the hotel was a tequila-tasting in the glamorous lobby bar. Lena provided Herradura tequila which included Silver, Reposa and Anejo. The tasting showed how the tequila mellowed with aging. Sangrita with Anejo was sublime, even better with Maestro Anejo. Omar Lopez, the bar manager, has shared his recipe for this great drink. The last day of my vacation led me to the downtown area where the Mercado 28 is located. Crafts and jewelry are sold there, and it’s a place where you have to bargain. Next was a stop at the El Parque de las Palapas, which reminded me of a carnival. Children enjoyed driving rented mini cars, and adults danced as music played. Food carts served marquesitas (a crispy crepe), roasted corn, ice cream and esquites, which is corn served in a cup with mayo, queso fresco, lime juice and chili powder. Nearby is the main Catholic church for the area. Habichuela Sunset on the Lagoon. The restaurant is all glass on the side that overlooks the garden, which is decorated with Mayan artifacts. The menu features Mexican and Mayan specialties such as a famous chicken mole and lobster and shrimp curry in a coconut shell.

Menemsha is a place so unspoiled that I almost hate to write about it. I want to keep the secret intact. Few vacation spots retain such a sense of community and authenticity. For the past few summers, I have been writing on a motor yacht, docked at the end of the pier, watching the life of the harbor swirl around me. In here still earn their living from the sea. Usually I sit on the aft deck, eating

There is a bike ferry that takes cyclists across the narrow, fast current of Menemsha Inlet, piloted often by Hugh Taylor, in a battered straw hat, whistling cheerfully as he escorts the spandex-clad bike riders to the not knowing that they have left behind a destination worth stopping for.

The beach stays empty until mid-morning and then suddenly blooms with color: plastic pails and buckets, swim-rings and beach umbrellas appear across the strip of sand.

As they eat, people watch the sailboats come in and out. The Texaco gas station also serves as the local candy store, and bare-footed children venture inside for popsicles and jawbreakers. In the evenings, sometimes banjo and acoustic guitar players congregate on the back stoop, improvising bluegrass for an appreciative audience. The sound of applause drifts across the harbor to where we are docked. photographers and artists converge in an attempt to capture the ambiance. This is the kind of romantic setting that exists in novels and movies. I have yet to include it in one of my mysteries, but someday I will. The vista of the harbor from the upper slopes can be glimpsed in famous movies – including “Sabrina” with Harrison Ford. The wreckage of one of the boats from “Jaws” sits neglected on the sandy banks. In every corner of the harbor, picturesque scenes beg to be painted. Boston artist Anne McGhee is always found there in paint-splattered overalls, her straw hat taped with blue duct tape, dabbing away, recreating every scene with uncanny accuracy. One August, while walking back from the beach, I found an old woman and her young grandson with tin pails, picking berries on the slope. “What are you doing?” I asked. She looked at me with incredulity. How could I not know? “Picking beach plumbs,” she replied. “It’s a good year.” “I’ll help,” I offered, hardly knowing what to do. Peeling the ripe fruit off the branches without splitting the berry is a delicate art, but I found myself getting better after a while. We chatted as we worked, and I found that an hour later I was still entranced with

By talking with her, I felt I had experienced the real essence of the place. It’s a place for grandmas and grandchildren, summer folks and locals, a place for visitors to yearn for every winter and come back to every summer. It has a timelessness that cannot be described, but only experienced. There is a word that sums up summer in a single sigh: Menemsha.

Rapillo Opens Sienna in East Hampton B y

N e g r o N

Restaurateur Jonathan Rapillo is making a splash on the East End this summer. After a successful season with Beaumarchais last year, he returns to open Sienna Restaurant & Ultralounge in the same location. Teaming up with Tony Fortuna of T-Bar Steak & Lounge of the Upper East Side and David Sarner, Robert Montwaid and Roee Nahmani of Greenwich Village’s Pink Elephant Club, which boasts Rihanna and her entourage of sexy dancers as regulars; Sienna, with its great food and lively ambience is the ultimate new Hamptons hotspot. Rapillo is also president of Tufo Foods, a foodservice distributor that supplies over 800 restaurants in the city. Jonathan has a serious track record of creating popular venues out East. One of his favorite spaces was Rocco’s a service. “The venue fell into my lap and it quickly turned into the place to be.” After graduating from Vassar College and completing his MB at Tulane University, Rapillo became a regular Hamptonite and began checking out the area’s nightlife. “I would walk into a place and analyze it, thinking to myself ‘What does this place need,’” recalls Rapillo. When the space in East Hampton became vacant he made an impulsive decision and Sienna Restaurant & Ultralounge was born. “There wasn’t a high-energy restaurant and lounge for a sophisticated audience in East Hampton; so I created a place that I wanted to go.” From CEOs and celebrities to producers and politicians, Sienna is attracting the prestigious clientele that is synonymous with the Hamptons. T-Bar at Sienna will begin every evening by offering its beloved menu featuring the highest quality, local produce. On Fridays & Saturdays, around 11 pm, the space will transform into the notoriously lively Pink Elephant that has attracted everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Howard Stern at its Hamptons outpost. Rapillo explained, “The dining tables will be replaced by cocktail tables and the lights will completely change the color of the room, creating an entirely new atmosphere. We’re taking Hamptons nightlife to the next level. In order to make the nightclub work, you need to be respected as a nightclub and Pink Elephant has that respect in the Hamptons.” The club’s host is the dapper nightlife veteran Artin Bey Archer. Sienna opened in May and the food has already garnered critical acclaim. Pink Elephant’s Memorial Day parties drew the cognoscenti and fashionistas that rocked into the wee hours with a different celebrity DJ every night. From the central location, with ample parking space, to the worldclass cuisine and the venue’s eclectic ambiance, Sienna is a winner. A proud Rapillo declared, “There is no doubt in my mind that Sienna Restaurant & Ultralounge will be the best Resident June 2013

Judith Murat

Judy’s Journey Into The Land of Murat By Isaiah Negron Artist and jewelry designer Judith Murat is reaching new creative heights and venturing into mystical lands she never thought she would travel to. No stranger to the spotlight, Judith spent 25 years as one of Eileen Ford’s top models. She then decided to explore another artistic arena after moving to Palm Beach, creating oil paintings and sculptures of her family that included her late helped her cope with the reality of becoming a widow. “It helped me stay sane and normal, at that point, it was either sink or swim,” she laughed. conversation with a manufacturer who admired her work, giving life back to the maiden name Judith’s mother had used for her own design business for ‘I think you should design jewelry,’ and I said, ‘Why not?’” The thought of making her art threedimensional propelled her forward and she began trees inspired by the scenery in Palm Beach. Only slipped all the pieces in silver and took it to Saks Fifth Avenue. And they said ‘We love it!’” Judith has continued to create more pieces book, “Judy’s Journey into the Land of Murat”, features her newest additions inspired by “island living” and her own vivid imagination. “These pieces of jewelry are alive; the dimension, the color, the jewels. That’s always been part of my love of design.” From captivating coastal images of frolicking drunken monkeys to undersea backdrops of dazzling seahorse-riding mermaids, the 18 carat gold pieces all evoke special emotion from Judith as the story of each design is just as important to her as the gems that make them sparkle. “When I see a gem, I can’t tell you how fast I put it together.” and the demand for her jewelry has soared at Scully & Scully on Park Avenue. “This work is from an artist. It’s sculpted, it’s not cookie cutter jewelry. I like to be really different; ethereal, beautiful and soft but it still hits you like a ton of bricks.” Always positive, Murat is working astrological constellations as her inspiration; she calls it “God’s arithmetic.” Inspired by the signs of the zodiac, Judith is designing a new collection. Though she is seemingly at the pinnacle of her creative career, she holds true to her lifelong mantra, “Your greatest work is ahead of you.” Resident June 2013

Hank Freid & Brandon Freid Father & Son Hoteliers By Isaiah Negron On Fathers Day, Hank Freid and his son Brandon Freid will celebrate with family and friends at Haven Rooftop & Lounge located in The Sanctuary, a luxury boutique hotel that they created at 132 West 47th Street in New York City. This dynamic duo has received critical and customer acclaim in the international world of hospitality for their achievements. Hank, a Manhattan real estate mogul and CEO of the Impulsive Group, has a long list of impressive projects, which span three decades. In 2001, Brandon graduated from the University of Miami and entered the family business; he is now the V.P. of Impulsive Group. “We have a great relationship,” says Hank. “We were very close while Brandon was growing up so we developed similar tastes. We compliment each other.” Their newest venture, The Sanctuary Hotel, is a testament to their winning collaboration. The intimate 111-room hotel, which Brandon has dubbed “my baby”, stands tall in the heart of the city’s theater district, near Times Square and 5th Avenue. “It was completely neglected” when they acquired it in 2010, says Hank Freid. “There were wrought iron gates on the windows, rooms on the lobby level and other rooms that shared a bathroom in the hallway. It was a gut renovation, but that let us make it our own.” Elements of the chic decor were inspired by their favorite hotels design and the impeccable guest service that they valued on their travels around the world. Their S.T.A.R. client services program is virtually unparalled in NYC. anniversary this month, boasts breathtaking views of the surrounding skyscrapers from a series of wraparound terraces.

The Freid’s individual strengths have been instrumental to Impulsive Group’s continued success. “Brandon brings a fresh energy,” says Hank. “He has a strong desire to move forward and expand.” True to his company’s name, Hank acts on impulse. “It’s my personality. Sometimes I don’t think, I just do, which has led to great success! But Brandon is more level-headed.” Like all teams, especially ones involving family, sometimes opinions differ. “We’ll disagree for a day,” Freid says. “But then we go home and go through a reasoning period, which usually leads to a compromise. Sometimes it’ll be his way and other times it’ll be mine, but we typically ends up agreeing with the other.” Hank and Brandon are currently looking for their next project. “We’re looking in Miami, LA, Washington and opening a hotel in Europe remains a

Assimilating Your New Puppy

By Victoria Stilwell Introducing a new puppy into a household with an existing dog can sometimes cause problems, and the resulting stress and tension can have serious consequences. Puppies in particular have boundless energy, and even frustrating, which is why it is important that you supervise all interactions between dogs and intervene if things get out of hand. Peaceful coexistence is the obvious goal and can be achieved in a number of ways including monitoring both dogs’ interactions and reducing situational and environmental stress. Removing any triggers that could create tension such as food, bones or toys reduces the need to compete, and potential the location-guarding that commonly occurs in multi-dog households. Toys and chews should be given only when the dogs are separated, and both puppy and dog should be fed separately if there is tension at feeding time. Identifying triggers and minimizing stress for both dogs will help develop a better relationship between them. Obviouslly, it’s important to be patient.

The existing dog needs to be shown that the new puppy’s presence means good things happen to him. You can achieve this by standing in a room with your older dog and having a friend or family member walk into the room with the puppy. There should be no physical interaction between the dogs, and as the puppy is brought into the room, praise and high-value treats should be fed to the older dog. The puppy can then be taken out of the room and his or her departure will signal the withdrawal of the treats. This exercise can be repeated until the older dog becomes more comfortable around the willingness to engage in social contact with the puppy will indicate that the technique has been successful. Walking the dogs together allows them to have positive experiences in each other’s presence. The puppy will require less exercise than the older dog to begin with, but a small walk every day will help increase that bond. Start basic training with the pup while giving the existing dog a refresher course so that when both dogs are together they can

give you focus and be guided by your cues. Management is equally important to maintain calm and baby gates can be highly effective in giving each dog their own space. Occasionally, however, gates can have the reverse effect and exacerbate tensions. In this case, both dogs should be put in separate rooms and only allowed to interact under active supervision. Other stress-relieving tools such as dog-appeasing pheromone can be used to give the dogs a sense of calm when they are around each other. Just like with us humans, there will be occasional quarrels even between the best of canine friends, but it is essential that you don’t subject either dog to any situation that could cause them to react negatively to one occurs on a regular basis, re-homing options might have to be explored, but this can be avoided if you are diligent in applying all training and management procedures so that both dogs can live peacefully together in a stress free environment. Stay calm and in the

Whenever I read fashion magazines, which is fairly often, I read where you shouldn’t look as if you tried too hard. Well, why on earth not? Why shouldn’t we look as if we tried to look our best? Isn’t that a sign of good manners? We care enough about other people to look our best for them, to go to a little extra trouble for them. A little more effort. I’m sure when people look at me or any stylish woman, they realize we tried, and hopefully succeeded. The perfect handbag didn’t wake up with our makeup perfectly We thought about it and planned it. What’s wrong with that?

please as long as I look chic and stylish. Then I decided to make me feel more dressed up. Give it a try. I also read in these same fashion magazines paeans for such style icons as Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy and how well put-together they always looked. Do they think when Jackie Kennedy was working as an editor, she dashed out of the house in 15 minutes looking perfect. Her look think we should all try a little harder to look our best. You never know who might be watching and what it might lead to.

Celebrating with Footwear Icons Though footwear trends change by the season with vertiginous heels challenging the limits of walking, our love/ hate relationship with shoes can turn classic styles into coveted treasures for generations to come. This spring, luxury footwear brands Roger Vivier and Salvatore Ferragamo celebrated their most famous footwear styles that have graced the feet of the world’s most iconic and fashionable women who refer to their To celebrate the 35th birthday of the Vara, Ferragamo’s most famous and recognized launched L’Icona (The Icon), which is an online project curated by photographer, Claiborne Swanson Frank, who snapped some of the most captivating, modern, iconic women including Miroslava Duma, Camilla Belle, Jessica Hart, Lake Bell, Lauren Santo Domingo, Chiara Clemente, Olivia Palermo, Alexandra Richards, Elettra Weidemann, Marina Larroude, Susie Lau, Sophie Auster, Lauren Remington Platt, Amanda Hearst, Lily Aldridge, Asia Baker, Dani Corona, Minnie Mortimer, Jessica Joffe and Laure Hériard Dubreuil who customized and wore their own version Vara or Varina. Every birthday deserves a party, and celebrities, socialites and A-listers from the art and fashion worlds were on hand to join host James Ferragamo and toast the Vara at a bash held on the gorgeous rooftop of the McKittrick Hotel with entertainment by Sophie Auster and Alexandra Richards. For a limited time, a customized pair of Vara or Varina is just a click away at:

If the delicate Faberge egg had an equivalent to a shoe, it would be a pair by Roger Vivier. Regarded as a master couturier of the footwear world, he was most famous for refashioning the stiletto into dramatic and extravagant objets d’art that would make women swoon. From Vivier’s iconic pilgrimbuckled belle to the femme fatale rose stiletto platform and comma heel, Bruno Frisoni’s modern interpretations of Vivier’s sculptural creations from the 50s are punctuated with playful and unexpected embellishments. The house of Roger Vivier just celebrated the launch of its namesake tome, Roger Vivier, which celebrates its evolution as an iconic shoe brand to a Parisian luxury house with an international reach and cult status. Shoe photographs of the vintage shoes, sketches, and design inspirations that are the hallmark of the brand which are complemented by personal tributes from international fashion icons like Olivier Saillard, Virginie Mouzat, Loïc Prigent, Colombe Pringle and Elisabeth Sammelhack, as well as conversations between Ines de la Fressange and Catherine Deneuve, Bruno Frisoni and Cate Blanchett, that have all been moved in some way or another by this aspirational and coveted brand. At their A-list celebrity studded bash held at the French Consulate in New York, we caught up with the Roger Vivier’s vivacious creative director and host, Bruno Frisoni, on what inspires him and what he loves most when he’s not designing. Resident: If you could design anything other than shoes that’s super luxurious what would it be?

It is my inspiration. Art photography or fashion photography. Even animals or nature.

Thomas Wolfe wrote that you can’t go home again, but Carrie Watts is ready to die trying. The elderly lady lives in a cramped Houston apartment with her henpecked son and his shrewish wife, who seems to take delight in tormenting her, banning Carrie’s hymnsinging, her dashing through the rooms and when she is chided. The play deals with Carrie’s attempt to escape to the home where she grew up and had her children, Ludie. “The Trip to Bountiful” by Horton in 1953 and then as a play on Broadway, both starring Lillian Gish, and was made won the Academy Award for Best Actress. The current Broadway revival has a mostly African-American cast and marks the long overdue stage return of Cicely Tyson. The great actress seems to relish every moment, as does the audience, breaking into laughter at her saucy remarks and mannerisms and audibly groaning when plot complications threaten the old lady’s plans. They even sing along with her on the hymns that so disturb her daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae (played by the lovely Vanessa Williams). Cuba Gooding Jr. is completely believable as Ludie, and Condola Rashad is a sympathetic young woman who meets Carrie on her journey. The production reminds the audience that the bus station has a section for “colored” passengers, though the white sheriff (Tom Wopat) treats Carrie with the respect she deserves.

Douglas Carter Beane is having a good year. Earlier this season, he re-invigorated Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” so that grownups could enjoy it as much as the kids. for adults, shedding light on a generally overlooked part of entertainment and social history. A “nance” was an effeminate comic in burlesque shows during the 1930’s and was generally played by gay actors. The title character in Beane’s work is portrayed by Nathan Lane, at the top of his form. Lane’s character, a self-hating gay man, who picks up a young hunk (played by Jonny Orsini) at the automat. Miles is a conservative Republican at a time when Mayor LaGuardia is leading a drive to shut down the burlesque houses. Lewis J.

Through her sharp tongue, Mengers gets back at all the talents she brought into the limelight and then dumped her. Movie lovers will be Doyle in “The French Connection” for Gene Hackman (rather than Charles Bronson) or for obtaining the part of Mrs. Mulray in “Chinatown” for Faye Dunaway. Wellwritten by John Logan and directed by Joe Mantello, “I’ll Eat You Last” may not have

action moves from the off-stage lives of the characters to their stylized comedy routines on stage. The play loses some momentum in the second half, as Miles’ fortunes take a turn for the worse and his personality sours. Nevertheless, “The Nance” is one of the season’s most fascinating works. Bette Midler is making a rare Broadway appearance in “I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers.” This is a onewoman show about the late high-powered Hollywood agent. While it seems a shame to present Midler and not have her sing, she is still mesmerizing as the catty Mengers, who recalls her own sad childhood and then

The Recorded Legacies

of Bing Crosby &

Stephen Stills B y

B a r r y

B a s s i s

Artie Shaw once observed, “The thing you have to understand about Bing Crosby is that United States.” Universal Music Enterprises (UME) has just issued ten Crosby albums, many in deluxe editions with bonus tracks: A Southern Memoir, Bing In Dixieland, Bing On Broadway, Bing Sings The Great American Songbook, Bing Sings The Sinatra Songbook, El Señor Bing, On The Sentimental Side, Return To Paradise Islands, Seasons, So Rare: Treasures From The Crosby Archive (2-CDs) and Bing & Rosie: The Crosby-Clooney Radio Sessions (2-CDs).

Considered the most recorded artist in history, Crosby made over 2,000 recordings and 4,000 radio programs, as well as numerous TV and movie appearances. Before Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley, Crosby was the biggest pop music star in the world. He had 41 No. 1 records, and his releases hit the Top Ten 203 times. The albums show how consistent Crosby was and how well his voice held up over a 30-year period. For many, he had the smoothest voice of the period. Most of the current releases are from the 1950’s and some were compiled from his radio and television programs. The sound quality is exceptionally good because Crosby used advanced recording techniques for his radio shows, including stereo. There are guest appearances on some of the CDs, such as Frank Sinatra on the tribute album devoted to his songs. Even on pieces written for the Chairman of the Board, Crosby performed them winningly in his own relaxed style. On the Dixieland album, there is one duet with Ella Fitzgerald and another by Louis Armstrong. The most compatible of his singing partners, with whom he worked on recordings and the movie “White Christmas,” was Rosemary Clooney, and their double-CD set is delightful. The Spanish album was arranged and conducted by Billy May, though Crosby most often worked with the tasteful John Scott Trotter leading an orchestra. Crosby was also comfortable working with a small jazz combo (usually with Buddy Cole on piano and Nick Fatool on drums) and the Dixieland album shows

worked hard to make his art look easy. While the latest releases contain some forgettable songs and dated patter, each album contains of the leading vocalists of popular music. Certain songs evoke an era, and one song that symbolizes the turbulent 1960’s is “For What It’s Worth,” penned by Stephen Stills and He then went on to form Crosby, Stills and Nash (later with Neil Young, who had also he wrote and performed hits like “Suite Judy Blue Eyes” about his troubled romance with folksinger Judy Collins. Rhino has released a lavish 4-CD box set Carry On, which traces Stills’ career from 1966 to the present. It contains 82 tracks, 25 of them previously unreleased. The set, produced by Graham Nash and Joel Bernstein in collaboration with Stills, includes songs from all Stills’ groups, including the underappreciated Manassas, plus his solo hits (e.g., “Love the One You’re With”). The tracks unfold mostly in chronological order, starting with “Travelin’”—a previously unreleased recording that Stills made at age 17 in Costa Rica, where his military family lived at the time. The most recent track, recorded within the past year, features CSN performing “Girl from the North Country” at the Beacon Theater. The set displays Stills’ ability to sing in a variety of styles (folk, blues, country, and rock) and also his superb guitar work. He trades licks with Hendrix and Clapton.

The team - Executive Chef Richard Kuo, Wine Director Patrick Cappiello and General Manager Branden McRill - has created a masterpiece (recently receiving two stars from the New York Times; I hate when they beat me to the punch). The restaurant is a wellspring of all things good, and it isn’t dining, Pearl & Ash is the brightest. It is no wonder then, that a guest and I devoured the offerings – in fact, we ordered everything on the menu!

A Premiere Destination By Christopher A. Pape As many of my friends know, I am not a devotee of things Brooklyn. Although my crowded, parking impossible and for the most part (don’t kill me here) the people unbearable. I accept the criticism that I am an oldfashioned New Yorker, who still believes that Manhattan lies at the center of the universe. myself in Williamsburg, Brooklyn recently, and actually enjoying it. I tracked out there for a restaurant; it was one of the best decisions I made this year. The restaurant, Maison Premiere, is of exceptional quality, and I urge all of you to make your way out to Brooklyn to try it. I contend that the atmosphere, service and dining establishments in Manhattan. This is no small claim – for anyone who knows me with the options. And ate everything that was presented to us.

But, I’m sure you’re all wondering: what exactly did we eat? So allow me to expound on the menu. We started off with a beautifully prepared seafood plateau, which consisted of lobster, crab legs, and six varietals of clams and oysters. If you’ve ever watched the professional at the raw bar - powerful hands moving with frightening speed, shucking oysters and clams, and breathlessly waiting to eat said creation, then you know how delicious it can be. And the seafood itself was some of the freshest “frutti di mare” I’ve ever had the opportunity of eating.

Our table, tucked into the back corner of the small restaurant, was the perfect vantage point to gaze on the other guests enjoying themselves. The service was polite, without being intrusive and knowledgeable without being haughty. Mention should be made that they have the largest selection of absinthe and absinthe cocktails in the United States – just the perfect accompaniment to a very

We continued are pleasure tour with a wellconceived tasting menu, consisting of dishes like sea urchin pasta with ramps, sea scallops brandade with garlic, parsley and espelette. Each of the above offerings was uniquely delicious, but the sea urchin pasta was my favorite. As an Italian, it was a perfect combination of al dente noodles and briny creaminess of the sea urchin that brought a smile to my face. In fact, I ordered another dish to go (and ate it almost immediately upon arriving home).

A Taste of Brooklyn By Marianne Belmonte

Although it’s been many years since I moved out of the old neighborhood in Brooklyn, I still need to go back every so often, and so I did recently; not to the old neighborhood but to Williamsburg. This last visit convinced me that I need to go to this wonderful city more often. I had an amazing experience at Miranda, an Italian/Latin inspired restaurant in the heart of Williamsburg, just across the East River from Manhattan. Having grown up in Brooklyn, I am very proud of what this city within a city has become. It is because of establishments such as Miranda’s that make us want to go back and experience all that Brooklyn has to offer.

One Sunday morning in April my family brunch at this very unique establishment. The restaurant is housed in a one hundred brick walls and a lot of rustic charm. We were greeted by the Maitre d’, Mauricio Miranda, co-owner of Miranda’s, along with his wife Sasha, who is the Executive Chef. Sasha has a very diverse background in the culinary world, and she has created her own authentic style. Her inspiration is derived from having spent time in both Europe and Latin American countries, and her creative nature has afforded her the ability

to create an outstanding cuisine. Mauricio has many years of experience in restaurant management, and together they make an extraordinary team. Both are dedicated to using only the freshest ingredients, and when they believe that using seasonal ingredients will achieve the best results. We began our celebratory brunch with a toast to my mother who had just turned eighty-nine. We had Bellinis, and the more daring of the group had La Miranda, which is made with guava, Moscato and Prosecco. I was told by the group that it was delicious.

Canasta de Pan, fresh baked breads, were brought to the table, still warm from the oven and oh so wonderful. Mother and I started out with bowls of soup which very much resembled minestrone but of course dishes we had deliciously creamy polenta and poached eggs and mouth watering frittata with gorgonzola, wild mushrooms, caramelized shallots and poblano peppered potatoes. Also featured was mangu with fried eggs - smashed ripe plantains to die for - and crumbled chorizo and pickled shallots, which were delightful. Last but not least, we had smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and goat cheese served with a side of Mirandaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Chile de Arbol hot sauce, not for the weak of heart but Unfortunately, we were too full to order any dessert, but the selections looked great, featuring almond cannolis made

with mascarpone cheese, gelato and a great farmhouse cheese tray served with housename a few. Sorry we had to pass on all of it, but it only makes me want to go back even sooner than later. So much more to try; they

Many people crave the chance to spend a weekend in the Hamptons, especially during an intense heat wave. Sometime late on a Friday afternoon you put on a pair of shorts, pack your bags and look forward to the cooler breezes that await you in the East End. Once you reach Exit 70 on the Long Island Expressway, you can almost taste it. Thirty minutes later, reality collides with the rubber on the road as you get trapped in a long and frustrating line of cars and the possibility of spending two hours on the local roads until you reach your destination. With plenty of time to kill behind the wheel, you can’t help but wonder why the roads to this worldknown destination are always so uninviting to the weekend traveler. As East End tourism has increased over the years and developers have rushed to build fast selling $3.9 million homes, traffic to the Hamptons has become an ongoing nightmare. Local officials have nibbled at the edges of the problem with periodic road widenings and a few repavings here and there. But the nightmare continues. Bottlenecks are nothing new for Hamptons travelers. They experience them in New York City and on all of the other roads to vacation destinations. What has been lacking on eastern Long Island is the political will to find solutions to speeding up traffic for visitors and local residents. With the passage of time it has become less likely that there will ever be a master plan to solve this Hamptons horror experience. Plans for an express highway running from Southampton to Amagansett have gathered dust since1975 when real proposals were made to end the traffic nightmare.

Back in those days, Governor Hugh Carey, himself a homeowner on Shelter Island, proposed an elaborate road widening project funded with state dollars to bring sanity to the local road system. While the plan would have caused some discomfort, it would have left most of the local homes along the route untouched. Plus there was an abundance of farmland that could have been condemned to make the effort work. At the same time that Carey was promoting his traffic vision for the East End, New York City was close to bankruptcy. There were famous headlines about President Gerald Ford telling the Big Apple to “Drop Dead.” With the city in bad shape and a Congress unwilling to commit to any new projects, the likelihood that there would be federal dollars for a Hamptons road improvement were at most remote. Carey, known to many as “The Man Who Saved New York,” recognized the folly of committing to an expensive and controversial project when the state’s fiscal health was in desperate need of a repair. While Governor Carey was contemplating ways to get various roads improved, environmental and civic groups were planning how to kill the Hamptons road in its infancy. Many of the deep pocketed residents who live behind the hedges on the East End were pledging money to kill any effort to make the Hamptons a major summer destination.

By the end of 1975, the great plan to build faster roads to the Hamptons was dead. The combination of keeping the Hamptons for Hampton people and the drying up of federal road dollars spelled the end of the project. Some of Carey’s critics suggested that he had only to look back at the history of Governor Nelson Rockefeller’s aborted attempt to build a bridge over the Long Island Sound from Oyster Bay to Rye. Rockefeller never realized how many special interests there were until he made what he thought was a dramatic and far-seeing way to move cars to Connecticut and points north. The RyeOyster Bay bridge would have reduced the region’s air pollution levels by tons and been a major economic boon to all of Long Island. Another Rockefeller dream was to build a highway through Fire Island in the 1960’s. This was thwarted by a coalition of homeowners and environmentalist who wanted to preserve the pristine barrier island. An intense lobbying effort was eventually successful and swayed Rockefeller and others to turn portions of the barrier island into a national park, effectively killing any chances of a shoreline highway. So as you sit in your car on a Friday evening stuck in endless East End traffic, think back to what might have been if Hugh Carey’s vision had become a

I hate all modern technology - computers and the like. I’m convinced that in a number of years we will have realized the full horror Jobs and Zuckerberg and their like have wrought. Computers have made our society even cruder than it was. There is no graciousness or sensitivity anymore. Computers are a boon to pedophiles and people with huge egos. There are people who think the whole world is breathlessly waiting to hear what they had for breakfast. I’m not one of them. A number of years ago, I was invited to lunch by a younger woman. Walking into the restaurant, she said, “I forgot to write on Facebook that we were meeting for lunch.” When I asked why she would think to write about it, she said, “Well, people might be interested.” I kept asking why they would be

I think social networking is a misnomer. It should be called unsocial networking. What is social about it? There are some people who want to be able to say they have 9,387 “friends” on Facebook and Linked In. In my book, these are not friends. I hate walking on the street and getting stuck behind someone busily thumbing away on their blackberries... strawberries... blueberries? I don’t have a cell phone or Smart phone. I have a dumb old-fashioned land line and it

Future generations will think, “Why bother I need on Google?” People are already forgetting how to carry on a conversation, spell and write. As a person who loves newspapers, I think computers are one of the worst things to befall society. Even bloggers admit no one does investigative reporting as well as newspaper reporters. I wonder whether, if we follow the laws of evolution, future generations will be born without ears. After all, people don’t speak anymore so why do
