Marvin Scott: As I Saw It Book Signing and Discussion

June 21 at 7pm, Barnes & Noble Union Square

Legendary NYC journalist, Marvin Scott, will be discussing and signing copies of his new book, As I Saw It: A Reporter’s Intrepid Journey, on Wednesday evening, 7pm, June 21st at Barnes & Noble, Union Square.  In As I Saw It, Scott reflects on the stories that have stuck with him personally over the years, and the people who gave them life--from political scandals to hauntings at Amityville, local tragedies, triumphs and absurdities find their place alongside accounts of crime and redemption, war and celebrity on a national scale. Revealed with Scott’s signature passion and candor, As I Saw It pairs Scott’s unique storytelling and photography to give readers a fresh look at the singular experiences of a lifelong reporter, and the stories that shaped a generation.

The event is open to the public.  Priority seating with the purchase of a book. 

Union Square Barnes & Noble is located at 33 East 17th Street, NYC. Learn more here

Guess who has the best water in Westchester? The City of Yonkers, that's who! 

Last week we posted about a "best tasting" water contest to celebrate National Drinking Water Week. Yesterday, Tuesday, May 9, Westchester residents were invited to join the Westchester County Department of Health for a blind taste test. 

The votes have been counted...Westchester’s best-tasting water flows from the faucets of Yonkers according to an impartial panel of pedestrians today at the Westchester County Department of Health’s Annual Water Taste Test in White Plains.

128 people sampled water from 10 of the County’s water suppliers and then voted for their favorite without knowing where it was from. The friendly annual competition promotes the excellent quality of Westchester County's tap water.

Yonkers Water Bureau will now advance to a regional competition and the regional champion will compete statewide in Syracuse, NY this summer.

Michael Schwartz was born and raised in Bronx, NY. He has been a freelance photographer for the NY Daily News since 1994. Prior to that he was a staff photographer at the NY Post for 10 years.  He has published a book “Irish Eyes,” which was acquired for the Brooklyn Museum’s permanent collection. He will hold a book signing and photo exhibit at An Beal Bocht Cafe on March 3rd and 4th from 7 pm til 10 pm. He documented the uprising in Belfast over a period of many years.

"I began my travels to Belfast in the summer of 1988 because I thought it would be a place to satisfy my curiosity about its political situation, as news media in America was reporting bombings and unrest regularly. When I arrived there, I was astounded by the presence of heavily armed military patrols and security efforts everywhere.

After a day or two I could see marked differences in housing and income in neighborhoods defined by their religion. Belfast was a unique city. It was physically divided into two warring sections by primarily political, but with strong sectarian and ethnic dimensions. Roman Catholics, called Republican/Nationalists, wanted Northern Ireland to leave the United Kingdom. Protestants, called Loyalists/Unionists, who considered themselves British, wanted to remain within the United Kingdom.

I saw West Belfast, with its Catholic residents, as a virtual ghetto under martial law, with "Peace Walls" built by the British to separate Republican from Loyalists neighborhoods. Unemployment and poverty were widespread. Houses and streets were reduced to rubble and vacancy after firefights. Huge concrete barriers and large stones made many streets "cul de sacs" to prevent escape routes for the IRA, the Irish Republican Army, an armed movement. There was an incessant droning of Army surveillance helicopters often mixed with the stench of burning rubber from bonfires."

An Beal Bocht is located at: 445 W 238th St, Bronx, NY 10463   (Riverdale, NY)

The Cultural Arts Coalition announces auditions for their production of You’ve Got Hate Mail by Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore. This production will be directed by Margaret Carey and produced by Judy Marano. Proceeds will help raise funds for the renovation Old Town Hall Theater in Brewster, NY.

A hilarious broadband comedy of errors, You've Got Hate Mail takes a hysterical look at the world of on-line hook-ups and break-ups. Love "bytes" when an extra-marital affair goes horribly wrong, thanks to a juicy e-mail sent to the wrong mailbox. The story is told entirely in e-mail from laptop computers, although the play still manages to have an unforgettable chase scene fueled by cell phones and PDAs.

The play consists of 3 female and 2 male characters between the ages of 20 – 50. Auditioning actors should have excellent comedic timing, energy, and script memorization skills. All roles are open. Please be aware: this show is for mature audiences only due to intense adult themes and strong language.

You will be asked to perform a reading from the script. Sides will be provided at the auditions only. Visit their website at www.oththeater.org for more information.

The auditions will be held on Monday, February 27, from 7-9PM at the Studio Around the Corner at 67 Main Street, Suite 101 in Brewster, NY. The entrance is located at the back of the building. There has been a change to the original show dates. The performances will now be held on April 28 & 29, 2017.

May the Fork be With You: Adventures for the Slightly Curious but Sedentary http://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4009-may-the-fork-be-with-you-adventures-for-the-slightly-curious-but-sedentary4009-may-the-fork-be-with-you-adventures-for-the-slightly-curious-but-sedentary http://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4009-may-the-fork-be-with-you-adventures-for-the-slightly-curious-but-sedentary4009-may-the-fork-be-with-you-adventures-for-the-slightly-curious-but-sedentary


Adventure is a loaded word. For many it connotes the exotic, the difficult or the unusual. The little frisson of thrill that is built into this word evokes steamy jungles, long treks in hazardous conditions or at least breaking from a comfort zone. As we get older though, perhaps “adventure” loses some of its lustrous appeal: the siren call of the couch outweighs the call of the wild.

It is for this reason that of late we have taken to journeys that are more suited to our, shall we say predisposition. Yesterday for example we decided to supplement our errand to a local store with a side trip for lunch to a distinctive restaurant in New Jersey. The internet makes it easy to seek these out. A quick search of Trip Advisor in the city we were visiting revealed Destination Dogs to be the “best in the area.” A few turns later, there we were beneath an Amtrak station in New Brunswick, across the street from Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center, trains roaring overhead.

The restaurant itself is a small  bar on the corner (parking available in a public lot across the street) with high bar stools and tables, along with additional  seating upstairs. The logo, a stylized hot dog with the elliptical wings of a 1950s prop plane, gives away the premise: “gourmet sausages, inspired by the world’s best cuisine.”

The menu is divided into “domestic” and “international” dogs, each labeled with an airport acronym. There is the sort of standard fare: “the Nicky Newarker: Newark (EWR), all beef hot dog with fried potatoes, peppers, onions, spicy brown mustard.” You can also choose the more exotic:” Bun Mi: Vietnam (HAN) Cantonese sausage w/ shaved foie gras, pickled vegetables, fresh jalapeños, Sriracha mayo, cilantro.”

The most adventurerous in our party had the “Andouille Armstrong: Louisiana (MSY) Andouille Alligator and shrimp sausage w/ cabbage, tomatoes, jalapeño remoulade, scallions, lemon wedge, “which she pronounced “light and not over powered by the condiments.” Those of us whose culinary comfort zone is more down to earth tried the “Paul Bunyon: Minnesota (MSP) Breakfast sausage w/ fried potatoes, bacon, maple syrup, topped w/ a fried egg.”

Overall the service was fast and friendly, though it was crowded, and the food was good, as well as filling. Leave room to try the appetizers, particularly the Scottish Eggs.

If you are truly adventurous, the restaurant offers a “Mile High Club” competitive eating challenge. Remember too that adventures are possible for those who like to be able to drive, park and stay in a comfort zone. The Latin roots of the word adventure, are after all “arrival.”

Thank you to my sister-in-law Pat for the title of this piece.

Destination Dogs is located at 101 Paterson St in New Brunswick, NJ. To view their menu, visit their website.
