Publisher’s Letter

Living Your Dream…. Angela Susan Anton, Publisher & Editor The October issue of Boulevard is a tremendous accomplishment for Anton Community Newspapers, our staff and for me personally. I have seen a great deal in my life and experienced some amazing moments, but I cannot think of anything (excluding my wonderful children) more exciting than Boulevard in its new magazine format. It all started with a dream that I have had for many years … The dream of publishing a beautiful full color magazine that offered a different look than those on the market. A magazine so exciting that each and every one of you, our loyal readers, would look forward to reading it. I can honestly say that our new Boulevard, in its easy-toread format, should provide you with hours of enjoyment. Our October issue offers you a preview of what you can expect. The feature article is about Dina Lohan, the glamorous and gorgeous mother of Lindsay Lohan, today’s version of the “IT” Girl. Dina is a celebrity in her own right and is currently working on a book and TV show in addition to her role as the mother of Lindsay, Michael, Aliana and Dakota. October’s Boulevard magazine will also feature articles on lifestyles from Montauk to New York City. Our photographs will feature today’s top celebrities and personalities from coast to coast... You will also be able to read insightful reviews about fabulous resorts, restaurants, parties, and people. Of course, Boulevard will continue to feature articles on food, the arts and education as well as the amazing people who help make our area great... I consider myself blessed, waking each morning and doing the things that I love, and being able to help my community! Dreams are important in all our lives! They give us reason to go on and to fully realize our potential. Fulfilling your dreams does not require that you start off with tons of money, or with movie star good looks. It does require persistence, and the ability to disregard naysayers who tell you it can’t be done. Boulevard is not an overnight success; rather, it is the culmination of years of trial and error, and tailoring our magazine to the needs of you our readers... I thank each and ever y one of you for your loyalty and feedback. You are the biggest reason for this dream being realized! Thank You Angela Susan Anton, Publisher and Editor

Big, Bold and Taming the Space Welcome to DESIGN… Meet Richard Piemonte, a talented New York designer with an international clientele. Piemonte’s feature will launch Boulevard’s DESIGN section where the creative work of interior designers, architects as well as home furnishing will be presented. If an item has a place in your Home we will find a spot to showcase it in our DESIGN coverage, so be sure to stay TUNED…

By Christina D. Morris he North Shore has its share of big, beautiful, houses. One such Locust Valley beauty features the design work of Richard L. Piemonte; a designer frequently featured in House Magazine for his creative impact. A recently completed North Shore property set on three and a half rolling acres with pool and tennis court, is one-level living with brick façade checkerboarded with French door-windows, and multiple roof heights. Indoors, the ceiling heights make a statement; the low is 14-feet, the high, 23-feet. The double door entrance introduces two long hallways, to the right the dining room, kitchen and family room, to the left the bedroom wing. Rich, claret-toned walls were given a luster stone finish, which covered a polished marble. Fluted columns frame the door. Custome designed hallway runners feature a shell design in sienna with claret detailed border. The round hallway area rug further defines the intentional use of these bold colors.

New York City apar tment dwellers challenge designers to down-scale furnishing and accessories for the illusion of space; Piemonte’s challenge was the reverse. The living room’s amenities included a floor to ceiling Palladian window soaring 23-feet anchoring the rear of the room, a barrel ceiling, floor-to-ceiling wall paneling of bleached oak, and a maple floor. Working with these elements, the space begged a designer to integrate balance and scale and to give the room a dramatic focal point. The fireplace was chosen as the focal point and was immediately given an entirely new elegant appearance. Floor to ceiling marble panels were given a new surface with an old world European finish of antique claret sandstone. Antique mirror panels with copper finished rosettes contrast beautifully with the bold surround. A new mantel was enhanced with Regency shell rosettes and claret trim. Piemonte explained, “To bring balance to the space, considering the ceiling height, all the furniture is oversized.” This is apparent in the huge gilt covered wood sconces with parchment shades that ideally fit in their designated spaces. A tall limestone stanchion with an extraordinar y large plant bowl on top could easily be imagined outdoors, yet scale-wise it’s a delightful accessory. Two intimate conversation

hubs were designed. Entering the living room, a console with matching very tall lamps, introduce a pair of claret chenille sofas festooned with large contrasting sienna velvet and silk pillows. A pair of tallbacked damask-patterned chenille chairs complements the setting and surrounds a large cocktail table. French doors on opposite walls near the Palladian window are where the second conversation hub was created. Dominated by windows, this part of the room relies on the dramatic impact of fabulous draperies. Three-inch rods with gilt finials hold sumptuous claret chenille drapes, with sienna velvet lining and trimmed with chenille boullion fringe. An 1890 Steinway piano becomes the focal point in this area. Across the room, a damask patterned sienna chenille sofa is joined by a glass inlayed cocktail table and a pair of claret toned, stripped moiré, upholstered chairs. Piemonte’s integration of rich, bold colors succeed in diffusing the impact of the room’s existing materials. The canvas on which living room ensembles rest is an outstanding, custom designed and dyed, oversized sienna wool area rug, with oak leaf pattern, trimmed with claret detail. Both carefully designed sitting areas convey an inviting aura of comfort and tranquility. The bold use of various shades of sienna and claret was continued into the dining room. The taming of both

Piemonte’s challenge was the reverse.” space and height in the living was not necessary in the dining room, which was already a more traditional size. To give scale to the room, a domed ceiling with gold leaf trim was added. An exquisite hand-carved Italian reproduction chandelier with 16 lights makes an impressive statement. French wallpaper in pale claret stripes adds warmth to the room. A wall of French doors and windows are dressed with the same opulent draperies utilized in the living room. A round fruitwood table invites intimate conversation via eight tall-backed chairs in sienna corduroy with antique brass nail trim and suede backs. The area carpet is a duplicate of that in the living room. An attractive buffet chest displays a pair of Italian antique, bronze finished, candelabras each with ten electrified lights. A terra cotta cherub statue adds a touch of whimsy as it is reflected in gold and silver reverse process antique mirror. The powder room was given a complete renovation. A gathered fabric ceiling was added, from which a gilt English chandelier hangs. A magnificent antique Bombay vanity chest is topped with a sand stone top and sink. Polished limestone floor tiles are accessories with Rosa Novona detail. The height of the room was given balance by the addition of a pair of giant torch sconces with custom designed lampshades that frame an elegant gilt framed mirror with Regency shell motif. A serene approach to the master suite is delivered with the four-poster and luxury fabrics. Photographer: Oleg Marsh

Warm colors make a bold statement in this distinctive living room.

The long hallway isolates the ensuite master bedroom wing. Silk stripped moirĂŠ wallpaper shimmers as one enters this spacious boudoir dominated by an oversized, hand-carved, oak four-poster bed. The silk bedding ensemble features monochromatic shades of sienna. Oversized night tables display tall antique Baccarat crystal based lamps. A wall of French doors and windows leads to the patio and pool. Voluminous hand-embroidered silk drapes, in lustrous rich sienna with Kingston valance, are trimmed with silk tassels. A tall oak armoire shares a wall with a cozy fireplace and a pair of chenille chairs, one with ottoman, is sized to respect the space and height of the room. Providing even more light into the room are windows overlooking the front garden. Here a round table displays silk coverings with boullion fringe and extraordinary floral bouquet. The most recently completed section of the house was the kitchen. Those impressive shades of sienna and claret are found in whimsical French wallpaper festooned with pomegranates, pears, and grapes. Corresponding drapes frame an L-shaped section of the room that anchors a breakfast/dining area. A long upholstered window seat in 12

plaid adds interest to the room. The plaid shows up on tall-backed upholstered chairs with woven leather backs that surround the round table. Another fabulous chandelier of intricate wrought iron, an Italian reproduction adds a rustic tone to this inviting setting. The fruitwood finished cabinets were custom designed. The double door refrigerator features mirrored paneling. Tumbled sandstone was used as a back splash, and above the Viking stove, a fruit mural, hand painted by Sal Moccia, adds a fetching touch. A large center isle with vegetable sink and counter tops are topped with distressed granite with wonderful bold shades in the sienna family. As with other rooms in the house, bringing the appropriate scale to the kitchen took precedent. Floor tiles, 18 x 18 with pillow finish, were used with an enlarged grout to accentuate the overall rustic appearance. As the title indicates, this house is big; Piemonte added the bold palette of colors and furnishing all resulting in a beautiful legend for decades to come. Credits: Richard L.

To the Manor Born: Randi Elyse of Lily Jewelry NY By Dagmar Fors Karppi rowing up in the jewelry business has given Randi Elyse, daughter of Candi and Mark Udell of London Jewelers, a jump start on her career. As London Jewelers third generation, you could say Randi was “To the Manor Born.” Candi Udell said when she was pregnant with her son Scott, she dropped Randi off at their Glen Cove store so she could house hunt. Randi was 4 and when Candi came back she was told Randi announced to the staff, “My dad’s not here so I’m the boss!” Randi had the will and she strengthened it with study. “I really definitely do know a lot about jewelry and fashion, growing up in the business my whole life. I listened at the dinner table and worked in the store weekends. I started using Windex on the display cases to make them shine,” she said. Randi added to her hands-on experience by attending Boston University and New York University, graduating with a BA in Art History and internships with respected design-

ers David Yurman and John Hardy. Today, Randi Elyse Udell has the enviable job of designing jewelry for Lili Jewelry NY. She is their chief designer and therefore is privileged to work with the Lili Cut diamond which is both a signature cut and a stand-alone Randi Elyse Udell brand. The rare, unique and patented flowershaped diamond features 65 facets. Randi explained that diamond cutters take a round Princess diamond and create the Lili cut from it. The unique design is only available through Lili Jewelry NY for which Randi has created a delightful new line. “It’s great that I can have the stones to myself,” Randi said. She has taken full advantage of the flower-like shape to create light and fun-to-wear classic, tailored jewelry. It’s for the customer who wants their bling to blend in quietly. She has found a balance between delicate feminine and new. “Lili Cut is for a real discerning customer,” said Randi. She showed a typical “diamond by the yard” necklace but with a Lili Cut diamond as the center stone. “It is only available at London Jewelers,” she said. A ring is in the cards to match the bracelet. To launch the Lili line, Randi created a million-dollar-design, her Bouquet bracelet. “The first time I saw the finished bracelet I was speechless,” said Randi. The inspiration came from a garden lattice.Crafted of 18 karat yellow, rose and white gold the Bouquet will take your breath away with its 12.81 ct Lili Cut bloom surrounded by 20.ct of diamonds in yellow and pink. There is even a graceful draped bow in rose gold studded with diamonds at each side of the bouquet. Joining Randi at Lili Jewelry NY, is Jane Stabler, her sales associate. She decided to move on with Randi to her new job because she believes in her. “I believe in Randi design-wise. She has that talent to pick the right thing at the right time and bring it to the public - which is why she was hired as a designer and design/trend consultant.” September ~ October 2006

atural cultured South Sea pearl. Nothing is as dramatic as a golden south sea pearl, spheres that gleam like liquid precious metal. The warm glow lights up your skin. Each pearl is a work of art as they are exceptionally rare in matched pairs or strands. The golden south sea pearl has become the most valuable pearl in its kingdom. They were long considered unattainable in strand lengths because very small percentages were harvested off the shores of Australia. Specialty farmers of Indonesia have nurtured a large golden tipped oyster that creates only limited quantities of these warm, lustrous, golden south sea pearls. When grading the golden pearl, like any other colored gem, you first look at the intensity and beauty of the color. Ver y minor blemishes and imperfections do little in detracting from its value. Then the luster, shape, and size of the golden pearl can add significantly to its assessment.

The value of gemstones is directly related to its rarity first, and then its desirability in the marketplace. Truly rare and sought-after gems command the highest prices, as in the case of canary yellow diamonds. The very best intense and vivid yellow diamonds command high prices, and the larger canary diamonds command prices that are strong and undisputable. The same thing has happened to the golden south sea pearl. Own even one golden south sea pearl and you posses a part of nature that is strikingly uncommon, unbelievably beautiful, and definitely unique.

s we all know, obesity can cause significant health risks. But even being just slightly overweight can add to your discomfort. Diet and exercise are the best ways to help stay healthy and keep in shape. However, as you get closer to your ideal weight, you may desire more defined body contouring and help with those last few inches. As the name suggests, body contouring involves re-shaping undesirable areas of your body. The two most common body-contouring techniques are liposuction and abdominoplasty.

Liposuction is the most common plastic surgery procedure performed in the US. Liposuction removes localized areas of fat through very small incisions and is followed by rapid recovery. Liposuction has replaced incisional body contouring surgery in most instances. However, if you have loose or excess skin, liposuction may not be the ideal procedure. Traditional body contouring operations — such as abdominoplasty or thigh lift—might be a better surgical option. Newer techniques of liposuction such as tumescent liposuction result in less bruising, less swelling and a quicker recovery than older methods.

Liposuction can slim your hips and thighs, flatten your abdomen, shape your calves and ankles or eliminate a double chin. It is especially useful for women and men who are of relatively normal weight but have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their body to appear disproportionate. These fat deposits may be an inherited trait and not responsive to diet or exercise. Liposuction may be the only way to eliminate them. Liposuction is also used to treat gynecomastia, or male breast

enlargement, which occurs in both teenage and adult males.

Who can have liposuction? While it is possible to undergo liposuction at almost any age, you will obtain the best results if your skin still has enough elasticity to achieve a smooth contour following fat removal. Liposuction should not be considered a substitute for overall weight loss, nor is it an effective treatment for cellulite, a condition that gives the skin an uneven, dimpled appearance. Abdominoplasty—better known as a “tummy tuck”—is an operation performed to improve abdominal contour. This procedure is performed when the patient has stretch marks, skin excess or weakening of the abdominal muscles. Most women who have had children will have some laxity of the abdominal wall. Abdominoplasty allows the abdominal wall muscles to be tightened, in addition to allowing removal of both skin and fat. The result is a flatter abdominal profile. Liposuction alone cannot treat abdominal wall laxity if it is due to loss of muscle tone. Women and men who have loose abdominal skin and fat concentrated in the abdomen can benefit from abdominoplasty. Sometimes these conditions are inherited. In other instances, substantial weight loss may cause abdominal skin to become loose. Abdominoplasty also can tighten muscles that have been separated and weakened by pregnancy.

I suggest getting facials at least every six weeks, one year before event. If your event is closer, your facial expert will come up with a treatment plan.

How the Soccer Mom and Super Mom Manages Everything By Tom Albright ina Lohan has an unassuming air about her, so much so that it’s disarming. She serenely sails into the restaurant at the Garden City Hotel in Garden City and greets me, friendly, engaging and charismatic. Juggling cell phone calls from her four children she comes across as strangely familiar – as a parent who is in the throes of a typically busy day and must shuttle between various commitments of soccer practice and football games while preparing dinner and being the all around mom.

With an upcoming book titled How to Manage Everything and a talk show in the works about the subtle but important details of life and relationships, Dina is a busy woman. Having spent the last 20 years in show business it’s nothing new for her. As her daughter Lindsay’s movie roles brought the 20-year-old actress to international stardom, the world is taking notice of the Lohans and media and the public are intrigued on where Dina fits into the picture. Who is the matriarch behind this now famous family, and how exactly did she spawn such success?

This led to various dance roles on Broadway and other theater jobs while she simultaneously learned the ropes of Wall Street and the financial world. “I had friends that were traders and I was intrigued how the entire business worked. While I was working in theater I just learned as much as I could about both industries in those years,” she says. “It was great training for everything I am doing now and I am in a position to help my children with their careers.”

Perhaps one of the hardest things for any parent is to find the balance between being supportive and providing guidance for your children while letting them make their own mistakes. Dina tells her children that they are in fact living in a world that very much resembles the Mean Girls environment depicted in one of Lindsay’s movies. “Sometimes you have to use a little tough love. Sometimes you have to let them stumble a little bit so they learn to get up. You can’t blame a parent for a child’s actions - all you can do is pray that you taught them morally correct behavior. In my case I try to teach them what was instilled in me by my parents, who were wonderful people and were very close with my children. It’s so rewarding when they get it.” Dina credits much of her moral and social grounding to her own parents – her mother was an Italian immigrant and her father was Irish. Her father, a World War II veteran, put himself through college and became a social worker, founding a Long Island chapter of Big Brothers and was active in the St. Vincent DePaul Society – a social outreach arm of the Catholic Church. Dina and her mother are very close, sharing home cooked meals as frequently as possible where the principle of giving back is found in everything they do. As a little girl, she accompanied her father to soup kitchens and various charity situations, so it was only logical that his granddaughter Ali chose the Ronald McDonald House to 32

She has several projects in the works most notably her upcoming talk show, which is the subject of great interest by network television. She manages Ali’s music career by herself and co-produced her recent holiday record with Grammy winner Chris Christian. A brief tour will follow but none of it will disrupt Ali’s academics in the 7th grade. Dina still plays a major role in Lindsay’s career as she always has. She credits Lindsay with making her own career decisions on projects, but helped her put together the well-oiled machine of agents, handlers, public relations experts and lawyers that have made her one of the most sought after and successful actresses in Hollywood. After several blockbuster movies, (Freaky Friday, Mean Girls), Lindsay is now making more independent films such as Prairie Home Companion for which she received stellar critical acclaim and is now currently in production with her fifth independent movie Bobby about Robert Kennedy. Having recently dropped off Michael at college for his first year, that feeling of letting go was particularly fresh on our afternoon together. But the Lohans are connected even when separated by geography and work. Dina quickly displays plastic beaded bracelets that match nothing in her outfit. They were gifts from Lindsay to her and Ali. The women in the family wear the bracelets until the next time they all see one another, when they will exchange bracelets again so they are still connected even when apart. The boys get tokens small angels, key chains or other items to remind them their family is never far and always in their heart. “I slipped a few things in Michael’s bag he doesn’t know about yet. He will find them later and know exactly who they’re from. Its our way of sticking together.” With that, Dina answers her cell phone and it’s one of her children asking when she will be home.

THE ISLAND Jones Beach to Get Taste of Trump Partners with Carlyle Owner for Catering Hall, Restaurant By Joe Rizza magine a 36,000 square-foot catering and dining hall in the heart of Jones Beach State Park for parties, weddings, business functions and dining. Well, world-renowned developer Donald Trump and Carlyle on the Green owner Steven Carl have. At a press conference at Jones Beach on Sept. 14, Trump and Carl announced a partnership whereby Trump will fund the new Trump On The Ocean catering facility to be built on the Jones Beach boardwalk and Carl will run it. New York State Parks Commissioner Bernadette Castro was all smiles as she called the 18 month project, a win,-win for every single stakeholder that you can think of.” The restaurant and catering hall is said to be a $40 million project, although the costs could increase. It will be located on state land and leased by the state to the developers. Trump said he used to frequent Jones Beach with his friends and parents. “It really hasn’t changed so much and I think that’s what Steve [Carl] and I want to do. We want to make something so beautiful and so magnificent but not so

much change,” said the legendary real estate mogul. Trump On The Ocean, as the restaurant and catering hall will be called, will replace the old Boardwalk Restaurant. The hall will be available to service parties for 100 to 1,400 guests. There will be a restaurant for the public and an outdoor dining section for beachgoers where bathing suits are perfectly acceptable. “We’re looking to make this the finest banquet and dining facility anywhere in the world,” Trump said. Carl, an East Meadow native, said the Trump On The Ocean is a dream come true. Carl, who said he enjoyed the dining of the original Boardwalk Restaurant, answered the Request for Proposal to develop the site and won the bid. “When I set out two years ago, I had always looked at this as being a place that was totally underdeveloped and could be the place to have weddings, parties and corporate events,” he said. Carl then sought the help of Trump, who, he said, embraced the idea. Carl will bring the business experience he gained r unning Carlyle on the Green in Bethpage State Park to Jones Beach. In response to whether the restaurant will cater to the upper class, Trump said the restaurant is going to appeal to everybody. A sketch of Trump On The Ocean, which will be built on the Jones Beach boardwalk.

The Magic of Camp… By Doug Pierce ummer has come and gone… Memories are now etched into the minds of hundreds of thousands of campers and their counselors forever. Warm memories of bright sunny days filled with laughter and starr y nights roasting s’mores around the campfire. Summer camps are quiet again. The cabins are empty and the pools have been drained. Top soil has been delivered and the once hustling ball fields have now been re-seeded waiting for next year’s crop of campers. Now the planning begins once again. It seems to be an endless process. Camp directors from coast to coast have begun to evaluate programs, staff and facilities with the central question being, how can we make our camps and the experience for our campers even better next year? The most effective camp directors understand the magic of camp. They understand what makes the environment that we call camp so special, and how camp is so different from the other ten months of the year. An article from the American Camp Associations Media Center entitled The Benefits of Camp speaks clearly to what it called the four “C’s” of the camp community: compassion, contribution, commitment, and character! We as camp owners and directors have been given such a wonderful opportunity to be major impact players in the lives of children. We are able to personally align the philosophy of our camps with our programs and facilities to offer those special teachable moments that leave indelible marks on the lives that we are so privileged to touch. The core values that camps promote aren’t really very different from those of our school communities, or those that parents instill in their children. So, why is it that we in camping continue to hear from scores of parents each year about the measurable successes and personal gains that our campers achieve in a short four or eight week stay at camp? Is it due to the fact that campers and their counselors have been put on an electronic diet, taken away from their digital screens to become an integral part of the bunk, the color-war team, the camp community? Is it that we have been somewhat isolated from the excessive commercialism of television? Or is it that kids simply act differently when they are separated from their everyday routines to

live under a different set of rules and group values? My best guess is that camp represents all that is real and genuine in life. Camp is a very un-artificial place where children are encouraged to branch out and try new things. Campers are allowed to feel free of failure as they are not graded on their results, only praised for giving it a try! Camp culture stresses sportsmanship and strong citizenship skills, and promotes healthy activities, which teach healthy life habits. Children experience degrees of independence as never before in their short lives which helps them to build personal competencies. Doug Pierce is the third generation owner/director of the Pierce Country Day School & Camp in Roslyn, Pierce Camp Birchmont in New Hampshire and The Maplewood School & Summer Program in Wantagh.

Economic Development, University Style: By Dr. Robert A. Scott, President, Adelphi University magine a community Chamber of Commerce that decided to start a strategic planning process for economic development, including the following principles and priorities. First, they want to recruit an enterprise that would produce a product or service of which everyone could be proud. Second, they want an enterprise whose employees are highly educated and willing to be active in community organizations. Third, they want an enterprise that is respectful of the environment. Fourth, they want an enterprise willing to par tner with the schools, civic community, and businesses. Fifth, they want an enterprise that would have a significant and positive impact on the economy through taxes paid and both operating and capital expendures. Well, in Garden City, that enterprise is Adelphi University, whose annual budget of over $140 million easily translates into an annual impact of over one-third of a billion dollars, without counting the results of over $100 million in capital expenditures in place and projected for the not-so-distant future. In addition, the university collects FICA, federal and state income taxes, and other taxes of nearly $20 million. When one adds in the restaurant, hotel, and other expenditures of those who visit campus during the year for homecoming, reunion, cultural events, graduation and sports events, the economic impact grows even larger. And Adelphi is but one of 19 colleges and universities on Long Island, whose annual operating expenses of over $3.2 billion translate into a $9.0 billion impact, without counting almost $1 billion in projected capital investments before 2010. Then, add in the expenditures of nearly 150,000 students, 30,000 employees, and their visitors to the regional economy. But this is not all. While higher education is a major economic force on Long Island, for sure, our institutions are more than economic engines in and of themselves. Our institutions also are teachers and partners whose intellectual, cultural, and capital assets spur economic, human, and community development. The curricula, scholarly, and artistic interests of faculty are the essential assets of a university, organized to prepare students and challenge orthodoxy to ensure a

I

dynamic future. Just think about how universities contribute to meeting the five strategic goals of Nassau County, including: (1) High tech/high skill industry growth; (2) Downtown revitalization; (3) Workforce and senior housing expansaion; (4) Brownfields redevelopment; and (5) Open space preservation and promotion of tourism. Campus cultural calendars indicate a portion of the lectures, dance programs, dramatic productions, and art exhibits made available to the community as well as to students, faculty and staff. These programs, in addition to other services, help make our communities desirable places to buy real estate, raise a family, and open a business. The buildings, grounds, and equipment of Adelphi and other universities are made available to the corporate and civic community for meetings, conferences, and retreats. Extensive multimedia facilities can host inter-continental conferences and residence halls can host “sleep away” retreats for executives and others. Campuses par tner with other groups to host and facilitate symposia on business, health, and environmental topics; offer adult fitness and cardiac rehabilitation ser vices to the community; accommodate the children of working parents as well as students in child activities centers; and co-sponsor conferences with partners such as Parker Jewish Institute for Rehabilitation, North ShoreLong Island Jewish Medical Center, and the World Health Organization of the U.N. The capital assets of colleges and universities are an important contributor to local economies. For example, the recently passed capital bond issue for private higher education in New York State is projected to result in $1 billion in improvements, and nearly 11,500 new jobs, with $125 million and 1,410 new jobs on Long Island alone. Universities are teachers, models, and partners in economic and community development. We use our intellectual, cultural, and capital assets to prepare professionals, managers, and artists; to contribute to the quality of life that attracts and sustains businesses; and to create jobs and wealth. This is economic development, university style, the community developer’s dream partner.

By Barry Kay ew York Baseball fans are anxiously awaiting the end of the regular baseball season and a much-anticipated return of Yankees/Mets II, A Cross Town World Series. After years of fan disenchantment and scorn from their cross town rivals, The 2006 Mets have run away from their National League rivals with a batting lineup that rivals that of the Yankees. In recent years the Mets were considered the “poor relations to the

N

their opponents with amazing power hitting. Both teams have adequate but not overpowering starting pitching and both teams depend heavily on their bullpens to win! Both the Yankees and Mets have had crucial injuries to key players that they have overcome. The Yankees have the indefatigable and virtually unbeatable closer Mariano Rivera and potential MVP Derek Jeter along with an All Star cast of Giambi, ARod, Posada and Bernie... The Mets have David Wright, potential MVP Carlos Beltran,

The Yankees and Mets… On Track for a Cross Town ‘Subway World Series’ “Bronx Bombers.” The Mets in recent years seemingly were doomed because of bad trades, an undeveloped farm system, and a well intentioned but “clueless” management. They finally hit the jackpot when the Wilpon family (Met owners) hired “baseball guru” Omar Minaya. In a period of just two years Minaya (through skillful trades, and strong Latin ties to young and upcoming players), has vaulted the Mets into position as favorites to be the National League’s entry in the 2006 World Series. The Yankees, considered the finest sports franchise in the world, and winner of 27 World Championships have gone through a lull in their winning ways. Joe Torre and his All Star cast are on a mission to reclaim the glory that has always been theirs! This marquee match up is fascinating on many levels! On paper, and on the field, the Yankees and Mets are virtually mirror images of each other. Both teams specialize in overpowering

Mr. Excitement Jose Reyes, and power-hitting Carlos Delgado, along with the “world class pitcher,” Pedro Martinez. Joe Torre, Yankees manager, is calm, laid back and battle tested. Willie Randolph, Torre’s apprentice was a Yankee star player with lots of post season experience. The intangibles in this series could turn out to be the Yankees having home team advantage, or the feeling that this is the Mets year, and that they are a “team of destiny.” A Subway Series between the M e t s a n d Ya n k e e s w i l l h a v e baseball fans nationwide glued to their TV screens. It will be a ratings bonanza for the networks and generate billions for New York City. It is a fitting reward for a gutsy city that has come roaring back from the devastation of September 11. A Subway Series like this is a win for everyone concerned. Bring it on!

CELEBS Al Sapienza, Has Found a Flourishing Acting Career by ‘Dying’ on Screen A Unique Acting Niche-Death and Resurrection… By Barry Kay recently had a fascinating lunch/interview with Al Sapienza of Soprano’s fame, at Nino’s Italian Restaurant in NYC. Al is a highly visible, handsome and talented character actor who has developed a thriving career on TV, cable, the theater, and in movies. He personifies the suave, savvy hit man. Mikey Palmice, who was Tony Soprano’s adversary in year one of The Sopranos. Al cur rently stars on Showtime’s hit series Brotherhood as Mayor Pete Panzerelli. He is also featured in the hit TV show Prison Break as Philly Falzone. His film credits include Carlito’s

T

Way, Intellectual Property, Lethal Weapon, Judge Dredd, Under Siege 2, Free Willy 2, and Pretty Woman. Al’s passion for the acting profession began at the age of 12 after seeing films like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Ultimately, his love of the theater and music led him to choose NYU to humor his parents (who wanted him to study business), when in fact he knew that the village campus offered easy access to acting classes and improvisational acting workshops. Along the way he met rock stars and up and coming stage and screen legends, as well as the legendary radio DJ Murray the K. After New York, Al traveled to Los Angeles and joined Murray the K who gave Al the opportunity to star in the theater as Beatle Ringo in the Broadway hit Beatlemania. Al’s biggest break came in 1998 when he auditioned for David Chase and was hired for The Sopranos. Unfortunately, his run on The Sopranos ended when he was “whacked” (killed) at the end of season one. Since that time Al has been “whacked” no less than seven times on cable, TV and in the movies in an assortment of gory ways. In fact Al has been “whacked” by some of the “best” including James Gandolfini, Sly Stallone, and Jackie Chan. Along with acting, Al loves to sing and can often be seen performing in cabarets in Manhattan and Off Broadway. For the immediate future, Al is hoping that “Mayor Panzarelli” is re-elected and the Brotherhood will be picked up for another year. In any case Al is always prepared “to die for his art.”

Doctor Dre, a Known LI Personality By Victoria A. Caruso he doctor is in and it’s no one other than Long Island native Andre Brown, known by many from coast to coast as Doctor Dre. Over the past two decades, Doctor Dre has become a legendary name in radio, film and television. Known throughout the tri-state area for his radio personality on both New York’s Hot 97FM and Power 105.1FM as well as co-host of Yo! MTV Raps, one of the cable music channel’s longest running shows, Doctor Dre’s influence on the hip hop community dates back some 20 years. A graduate of Westbury High School, Doctor Dre began what was to become a quite successful career back in 1986 while, as a student at Adelphi University in Garden City, he worked up the ranks at the college’s radio station, WBAU 90.3FM. By his senior year, he served as the station’s assistant music director and hosted his own late night show through which he interviewed up and coming groups who later became major names in the rap, R&B and hip hop industry. Following his stint at WBAU, Doctor Dre went on to be a live DJ for the Beastie Boys, spending a year and a half on the road before garnering a co-host seat, along with fellow personality Ed Lover, of Yo! MTV Raps. After seven years with MTV, Doctor Dre and Ed Lover set out to take New York radio by storm, serving as hosts at HOT 97FM. The two then started in the Newline movie Who’s the Man before heading off to host a show on Los Angeles’ The Beat 100.3FM. After The Beat, Doctor Dre returned to the east coast and landed a gig at New York’s Power 105.1FM. In November 2003, he joined forces with Keith Shocklee, producer of the Long Island hip hop group, and put together the “Doctor Dre’s After Hours Spot,” a Saturday night talk show that featured musical, sports, entertainment and political guests while driving up hip hop and R&B music. By September 2004, the show was number one. Currently, Doctor Dre is working on a project with Power reps, but does not want to jump the gun by saying too much, too soon. Instead, the Westbury father of two is looking to focus on how he can use his personal celebrity on a more local front. Doctor Dre recently joined forces with former comedian, presidential write-in candidate and weight loss guru Dick Gregory and has dropped down significantly from his previous 465 pounds. He is determined to see local school districts provide students with healthier lunch options. “I watched what they fed my kids and feel that needs to be revamped,” said Doctor Dre. While he plans to tackle the Westbury School District, Doctor Dre

wants to see a statewide revamp. “Westbury may be the start, but Glen Cove is just as important to me as Upstate New York to the end of the Island,” he said Doctor Dre’s ups and downs with weight, he said, make the need to promote family-centered “get moving” programs important. He believes today’s youth needs to become more physically active and motivated. “I have a rule with my kids. If they want to play PlayStation for two hours, they owe me two hours outside. Physical fitness is so important,” Doctor Dre said. “Everyone has a very hectic life, but if you put so much care into your car, you should put that much effort into yourself.” To get kids more active, Doctor Dre wants to work to see local school districts utilize more of their open space while, at the same time, working with community sports and youth organizations to become more involved. “I have been blessed and have been speaking at all different locations all over the countr y and sometimes throughout the world at places that have less funds and are doing so much more, on their own,” he said. “We need to get something running here. If we don’t we are going to have kids not doing anything except playing videos games. To me, the video games should be the icing, not the cake.”

Kathryn Crosby in Concert at Hofstra Playhouse By Dagmar Fors Karppi he pleasure of your company is requested by Kathryn Crosby at the John Cranford Adams Playhouse, at Hofstra University on Sunday, Oct. 15. “It’s a program about my life with Bing,” she said in a telephone chat from Nevada. Bob Spioto, Hofstra USA Productions executive producer said, “It will be a multi-media production with slides and film clips all from her private collection – all so totally tied to her life and their life. Her performance is wonderful, heartfelt and incredibly sincere. “For the price of the ticket, you get free parking and the book. Living on Long Island, you will be home in the blink of a traffic light. If you are a couple… you will go home with both books, My First Years with Bing in dramatic black and white; and My Last Years with Bing – in color; and both editions are autographed. With what we are charging [the most expensive ticket is $40] you are basically getting the show free,” said Mr. Spioto.

T

Kathryn is looking forward to working in a cabaret format. “It’s a lot of work and you’re not going to make money at it – the [cabaret] rooms are too small, but Hofstra can handle it. Their auditorium holds 1,000 people. Your newspapers serve these people,” she added. The program is a stroll through the pages of the books – in song. “The fun I think,” she said, “Is that I’m telling the story of meeting Bing and our romance. I remember Joe Williams saying ‘I didn’t think you would ever get married.’ That’s where I sing Swinging on a Star. Then Bing sings Don’t Fence Me In - on film. Then I sing Let’s Face the Music and Dance.” That was the time in their love story that the two decided to break up. Kathryn marks the time with I Wish You Love, as the two break up. But the break up doesn’t last as the next song tells, and Bing sings True Love. Just the names of the songs brings the melodies to mind – they are truly classics. “Aren’t they lovely, and they express what I want to say,” said Kathryn.

CHARITY EVENTS NCMA Ball Sets The Pace For Social Season

N

assau County Museum of Art’s annual Ball, long established as one of the most glittering events of the North Shore social season, is the museum’s major annual fundraiser, providing more than 30 percent of the museum budget and making it possible to fund an ambitious schedule of original exhibitions and stimulating educational programs for adults, school groups and families. This year’s ball, The Art of Fashion Through the Centuries, proved to be one of the most successful yet. Inspired by the museum’s recent exhibition, Art and Fashion: Marie Antoinette to Jacqueline Kennedy, an exploration of the intersections of art and fashion. Students from Nassau Community College and 12 Nassau County high schools designed and created the extraordinary costumes and wall panels that were seen throughout the Ball’s tented pavilions and walkways. Honoring David Lerner of David Lerner Associates, the ball was chaired by Angela Anton, Elaine Berman and Corrine Paston. The journal committee was chaired by Jonathan Serko of Cushman & Wakefield. For information about exhibitions and events at Nassau County Museum of Art, call 484-9337.

2006 Snow Ball Honors Marion Levine

N

orth Shore Child & Family Guidance Center, Long Island’s leading specialty children’s mental health center for more than half a century, will honor its Executive Director/CEO Marion Levine, at its 2006 Snow Ball to be held on Dec. 2 at Hempstead House in the Sands Point Preserve. At that event a special salute will also be given to Mary Tyler Moore and a tribute to the center’s presidents who have served during Ms. Levine’s tenure. Marion Levine was hired by the guidance center in 1974. Under her leadership, the center has grown and expanded to its present position as Nassau County’s preeminent children’s specialty mental health facility. Responding to the needs of their communities, Ms. Levine led the way with new and innovative program development and the expansion of the Center’s financial development through diversification of government contracts, foundation grants, corporate support and joint ventures with schools and other agencies. During the area’s most traumatic events, such as the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, the Long Island Rail Road Massacre, the Lynbrook Church murders and the Avianca plane crash, Ms. Levine has been a prominent force in setting up both emergency and ongoing services for victims and their families. The county calls upon the Center to respond to the many issues that face the children, youth and families of the many communities that make up the Long Island suburban area. All of this work culminated in an important documentary hosted by Barbara Walters and broadcast on the ABC Television Network as part of that network’s 9/11 First Anniversary programming. Someone who made an important contribution to the Center’s media positioning has been actress Mary

Tyler Moore. It was in the fall of 1983 that Ms. Tyler Moore first appeared at a North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center event on the arm of Dr. S. Robert Levine, the son of Marion Levine. Ms. Tyler Moore’s connection to the Center became even stronger with her marriage to Dr. Levine. Coupled with her genuine interest and concern for children’s mental health issues, she became active in the organization and, as a board member, she hosted a major fundraising event in the early ’90s, star red in benefit performances for the Center of Love Letters (co-starring Gene Wilder) and later her one-woman show. She has also starred in many videos for the organization throughout the more than 20 years that she has been a part of the Center family. Perhaps the best way to understand the important and seminal work of Marion Levine is to listen to her own words, written as part of the center’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2003. “Serving for more than half of the life of an historic organization like North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center gives you a rare perspective on the process of institutional survival

and on institution building. It also tests your ability to perform multiple tasks on an almost hourly basis. “It has been a particularly satisfying professional experience to have had talented and dedicated colleagues who, for decades, stood side by side with me. The organization is so unusual in the loyalties of its volunteers and supporters. One has to stretch back to include for acknowledgement and thanks such distinguished families as: The Marks, the Rautenberg’s, the Greenes, the Coharts, the Schwartzs, the Lanes, the Kantors, the Imperatores, the Seamans, the Garfunkels, the Liptons, the Leeds, the Castagnas; the Antons and the Hazans — amazingly, these families still remain active supporters and board members who still give great effort to keep our engines running. “It’s a rare piece of luck for someone like myself, who has had to watch the steady decline of professional standards of practice in so many other places, to have been able to contribute to quality and even to advance it in such a compatible and affectionate place as Nor th Shore Child & Family Guidance Center.”

A Celebration of Commitment and Hope

O

n Sunday, Nov. 5, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), Long Island chapter, will celebrate its 18th Annual Fall Luncheon at the Crest Hollow Country Club, Woodbury. Over 500 people are expected to attend this highly-anticipated event in order to celebrate and honor three exceptional people who make a difference for CCFA and people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). This year, it will be the chapter’s privilege to present the “Vision of Hope” Award to CCFA National cofounder and chairperson emeritus, Suzanne Rosenthal. As chairperson emeritus of CCFA’s Government Af fairs Committee, Suzanne’s tireless advocacy efforts, on behalf of IBD patients, continue to have a profound impact on CCFA’s growth and success. It was Suzanne who initiated the support group model that was later developed and implemented as CCFA’s national network of support groups. The “Corporate Angel” Award will be presented, with deepest appreciation and admiration, to Carolyn Logan. A longtime friend and advocate of the Long Island chapter, Carolyn is president and CEO of Salix Pharmaceuticals. Her personal understanding and professional response to the educational needs of patients and physicians on Long Island has made possible the level of service the chapter is able to provide to its constituency. Jonathan Janis, soon to be 13, will receive this year’s “Shining Star” Award, given each year to a young person who demonstrates extraordinary commitment to finding a cure. Last year, Jonathan approached his student government with the idea to sell “Got Guts” bracelets as a community service project at Weber Middle School.

here were plenty of Panama hats, flowered shirts, sultry dresses and Cuban cigars (the chocolate kind only) at the Carlyle on the Green in Bethpage State Park when more than 230 supporters of Planned Parenthood of Nassau County partied at the organizations’ ’06 Gala, themed Havana Nights. Even Fidel—or someone who looks a lot like him—dropped by to celebrate. The event raised funds to help support the clinical and educational services of PPNC, one of Nassau’s oldest and most trusted health services organizations. With three health centers, in Hempstead, Massapequa and Glen Cove, PPNC is a leader in the prevention of unintended pregnancies and in the diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections for males and females. PPNC also offers a variety of free and low-cost education programs dealing with a variety of personal and health

WINE & DINE Old School Meets New World at Ballato’s By Venus Quintana alking into Ballato’s, there is a good chance you will be greeted by the boss himself. Perched at his favorite table is Emilio Vitolo, the godson of the original Ballato family. A warm, gregarious man, Emilio welcomes you with open arms. After immigrating with his family from Salerno, Italy in 1968, Emilio was destined for success. Taking over the business in 1993, he was determined to continue with the tradition. Located on the far uptown edge of Little Italy known as NoLita, Ballato’s draws in devotees who drive in from out of state or fly in from Europe. Neapolitan cuisine at it’s best, it has been frequented by actors, artists and politicians since the early 1950’s. The menu is by no means nouveau. Instead you will find good old fashioned Italian cooking- subtle, integrated and delicate. For the food savvy connoisseur, the mussels marinara and rack of lamb are sure winners, though the plebeian might be just as content with the sausage and broccoli rabe. The dishes are varied and moderately priced. An intimate setting, with faux finished walls, gilded mirrors and soft candlelight along with the superbly crafted menu, are testimony to the state of small restaurants that have continued to popularize and may be what some New Yorkers need after having to deal with the travails of larger establishments. You will find only ten tables in the main dining room, that are seldom empty, and as you walk through the kitchen where you can take in the aroma of bread and sauces steaming, a secret back room is discovered. You may just hear the faint echoes of John Lennon or Andy Warhol laughing over dinner. Famous or not, Emilio will treat you as if you were part of the family, so pull up a chair and let the tradition live on. Lunch: Mon.-Fri. Noon to 2:30 p.m.; Dinner: MondayFriday 5:30 to 11 p.m., Saturday 4 to 12 a.m., Sunday 4 to 11 p.m. Reservations recommended. Private catering available.

Young Man From Maine Becomes An ‘Eventeur Extraordinaire’ By Barry Kay have known Christopher Robbins and “Robbins Wolfe” for over 10 years, and always appreciated and admired his enthusiastic, unpretentious warmth, and great parties. I had never realized how well Christopher is known and appreciated among celebrity and corporate clients. Chris began his culinary adventures in 1979, when he was a senior in high school in Kittery, Maine. He had worked part time for a local caterer in Rye Beach, NH and decided that the food and entertainment industry was an interesting way to make money while in high school and, eventually in college. After researching exciting venues, he decided that the Hamptons seemed the most promising. Chris applied to and attended Southampton College and began working for a local caterer. One day in the fall of 1980, while Chris was sitting in a Watermill restaurant, he overheard a well-dressed woman talking to a friend about finding some help for her daughter’s party. Chris struck up a conversation and told her that he was available to help, having worked in catering, and left her with his phone number. A few days later, food writer Miriam Ungerer called saying that her party was under control, but to contact her caterer, RC Wilford Catering. From 1980-1985, Chris worked for Bob Wilford and Wilford Catering in Wainscot and New York City. After gaining a great reputation for exquisite taste, new and different food, and for fabulous customer service, Chris and his friends Ken and Paula Wolfe formally incorporated Robbins Wolfe Catering in 1987. In 1992 Robbins Wolfe Catering became Robbins Wolfe “Eventeurs” (a word the partners coined and registered as a service mark with the U.S. Government…they own the word to this day) and they became the Hamptons “Eventeur of Choice” for clients such as: Jessica and Jerry Seinfeld, Steven Spielberg’s SHOAH Foundation, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, Polo Ralph Lauren Corp., Georgio Armani Corp., The Hampton Classic Horse Show and Bay Street Theater, among many other high profile clients. Robbins Wolfe is also the exclusive

Chris and the company have been featured as a guest on cable TV’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy; The Discovery Home Channel’s The Party Planner with David Tutera, as well as on the Food Network and NBC. What started out as a 750-square foot kitchen in Bridgehampton today has “morphed” into an exciting new 3500 square-foot kitchen. Two years ago Robbins Wolfe increased their financial resources and visibility by merging with CulinArt, Inc. a national on-site dining company. Today Robbins Wolfe has offices in Locust Valley, Bridgehampton and New York City. Christopher Robbins is a happily married family man whose wife Tammy is a Nassau County Circuit Judge. He is also a proud father of two lovely daughters Jillian 14 and Mallory 9. Chris is truly an amazing “eventeur,” but he is also a really nice guy! September ~ October 2006

Day two, St. George’s on Grenada, (Reagan sent US troops there) offered a tour of the island providing both historical and current context. A stop at the Dougaldston’s spice estate as well as at the Grand Etang National Park and the Annandale Falls was interesting. The city’s kaleidoscope outdoor markets proffering the island’s renowned spices provided visual and aromatic pleasures. The Ile de Salut archipelago is made up of Ile Royale, Ile St. Joseph and Ile du Diable (Devil’s). Only Ile Royale is accessible today. Prepped on the history of this tragic place where 80,000 prisoners were sent and over 50,000 died, today, its buildings include a modest hotel, ruins of prison cells, a guillotine, an impressive physician’s house, officer’s hospital and a small museum. There is no transportation on the island or baggage assistance, and the walk from the harbor to the settlement is uphill. For $10 a night, one can hang a hammock in the officer’s mess!

A tender ride to the town of Bequia on St. Vincent revealed the port to be basically untouched by tourism while its perfect harbor attracts ocean-going yachts seeking shelter and refurbishing.

In motorized canoes, (no life jackets) and definitely not for the faint of heart, we spent the day exploring the hundreds of islands, some inhabited, where the majesty, the overwhelming waterscapes and forests leave one truly amazed. The silence in this

The local villagers, whole families in a tiny canoe, welcomed us with a variety of handicrafts. The water fluctuation of the Rio Negro, a tributary of the Amazon, provided a great opportunity for a guided jungle walk where the incredible water fluctuations, evident in towering trees with water marks above 12 feet, were visible. Disappointing was the lack of sightings of indigenous jungle inhabitants, monkeys, sloths, birds, etc. We visited with natives who rely solely on the river for their needs, and marveled at the sheer expanse of flowing water and the density of the forests.

Two excursions out of Manaus that climaxed our journey was the jungle night walk, (it’s noisy) and a canoe trip in search of cayman (they were all asleep).

Sailing on the Amazon is a memorable experience, doing it aboard the Silver Cloud makes it unforgettable!

However, sitting at poolside, overlooking the gorgeous Marina, gave the illusion of being at a luxur y resor t in the Caribbean... This tropical feeling is amplified by an

amazingly courteous and helpful staff imported from Jamaica. I had the opportunity to dine and talk to the new General Manager David Hirsch and his charming Director of Sales/Advertising Lisa Bryan. I was impressed with their vision, drive and focus on continuing to build the reputation of this famous resort. In the evening as the sunset over the water and the magnificent yachts, I dined at the award winning Lighthouse Grill where Tom Rossetti the restaurant manager served wonderful gourmet delights. My short excursion had allowed me to soak in some glorious weather, swim in the clear blue waters of the outdoor pool, and share great conversations with a young and dynamic management and staff at the hotel. Special thanks again to David, Lisa, Tom Rossetti and Chris Hove for a memorable stay at a resort that offers elegance at an affordable price!
