Our Local Influencers: Kris Tetreault

Our Local Influencers: Kris Tetreault

By Gia Miller Photography by Justin Negard Waiters/waitresses are the world’s oldest influencers – they tell us what to eat (and drink) whenever we dine out. And we often take their advice without watching hours of their videos to determine if they're trustworthy. We sat down with some of our local influencers to get to know the folks who influence ...
How to Get A Grant

How to Get A Grant

Writing  by Gia Miller Photography by Justin Negard Do you have a great idea, but you don’t have the money to fund it? Are you hoping to grow your business, but you don’t want to take out a loan? Is your artistic endeavor at a standstill because you can’t afford to take it to the next level? A grant could ...
Down to Earth

Down to Earth

We use terrible puns because death makes us uncomfortable. Yet Bruce Reisdorf deals with it for a living, and he loves his job. Those who know him say he’s the last guy to let you down (sorry!), and we find out why. As Benjamin Franklin famously said, in this world, nothing is certain except death and taxes. We deal with ...

Caramoor 2023

Caramoor 2023

We spent a good deal of last spring, summer and fall hanging out at Caramoor. While we didn’t get to see Yo-Yo Ma, we did meet Eileen Jewell, visit the Soundscapes exhibit, enjoy Juneteenth and Dia de los Muertos, and participate in the American Roots and All Day Jazz festivals. Why were we there so much? Because Caramoor is incredible ...
The Colors of Music

The Colors of Music

Our Partners Julie Andrews once said, “Feed the body food and drink, it will survive today. Feed the soul art and music, it will live forever.” On September 19, art and music will come together thanks to “Tempo,” a show at Chroma Fine Art Gallery featuring local artists Andy Hammerstein and Julie Rosenberg. Gallery owner Rita Baunok says she combined ...

DIY Hero

DIY Hero

In the modern world of YouTube videos and ‘how-to’ websites, the DIY solution can be tempting. A two minute video can be all the inspiration needed to break out the welding torch and chainsaw. But should you? How do you know what’s within reach and what’s going to burn the house down or leave you knee-high in a basement full ...

From Kathmandu to Westchester

From Kathmandu to Westchester

Writing by Gia Miller Photography by Justin Negard It’s hard work running a restaurant, much less two. But the Jewel of Himalaya owner is perfectly suited for it — he's worked tirelessly his entire life. When Tshering T. Lama was five years old, his parents enrolled him in a boarding school. He lived in a small Nepalese village called Solukhumbu, ...
Classic French Cuisine Comes to North Salem

Classic French Cuisine Comes to North Salem

In 2020, chef Andrea Calstier and his wife Elana Oliver were ready for their next move. Born and raised in Marseilles, France, the high school sweethearts were living the American dream. They’d moved to Manhattan in 2017 and opened their first restaurant a year later, when they were only 23 years old. Papilles was a 10-table restaurant in the East ...

Reframing Your Mental Health Condition

Reframing Your Mental Health Condition

by Rich Monetti artwork by Andrea Jaffee If you deal with the symptoms of anxiety or depression, you might view them as scourges that hinder your day-to-day well-being. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, if you’re able to view your symptoms in a different and more positive manner, you may actually learn to live with them ...
Understanding the Key to Longevity

Understanding the Key to Longevity

by Ava Fleisher It’s easy to use the phrase “we’ll all die someday” as an excuse to neglect your health. But the truth is, it’s really not that easy. Sometimes, if you focus on the right things in the right places, the average American lifespan of 77 years can be more lively and even lengthened. Ask yourself: “Wouldn’t I rather ...
Seasonal Sadness

Seasonal Sadness

Writing  by Gia Miller Artwork by Zoe Stevens No matter how much you love snow, a roaring fire or a hearty bowl of stew, less daily sunshine, more layers of clothing and icy roads that force you to stay indoors can make anyone feel a little blue. But for some, a biochemical imbalance in their brain causes a seasonal depression ...

Back to the 80s

I did it again – I went out! And I had a blast! My former middle school put on a show called “Back to the 80s.” I’d never heard of it, but I do love vintage Madonna. Plus, I knew some of my former castmates would want to see what John Jay Middle School is up to these days and ...

2023 Pride Events

Before this year, I’d never been to a pride event before, and I didn’t know there were any in Northern Westchester. I felt alone, and like my community didn’t support me. But now that I’ve learned what’s around us, I want to shout it from the rooftops….or write it about online. Here’s what’s on the gay agenda for June, so ...
