Questionable play-calling dooms Greenwich football team

on
How cool is it that I was able to watch the Greenwich-Staples game live on my laptop? If you missed it you may rewind and view the entire game on MSG Varsity online. From the perspective of the cameras atop Cardinals Stadium, it was a very strange game indeed. Perhaps the Greenwich coaching staff had […] [Read More]

Postcard from Greenwich Point on Thanksgiving

on
Because Thanksgiving is one giant Early Bird Special, I dedicate this post and slide show to Greenwich snowbirds wherever they are – teeing off in Boca or lounging by the pool in Delray. These photos, taken this morning at Greenwich Point of the aftermath of Sandy, show a stark beauty left by the storm.┬áThe Point […] [Read More]

Greenwich is facing its own fiscal cliff

on
Greenwich needs to tax the rich. There, I said it. Actually, I typed it – on my MacBook Air. More on that later, but first, some background: Hurricane Sandy diverted attention from a saga unfolding in Greenwich which is stormy and out of character with the buttoned-down management of this seaside burg with its hedge […] [Read More]

Photos of Tod’s Point in Greenwich after Hurricane Sandy

Photos of GOP, Dem HQs don’t tell whole story in Greenwich

on
They refer to it as their “headquarters,” but the temporary home of the Greenwich Democrats in Cos Cob looks more like a relief station to me. Shabby and unkempt, it’s nonetheless an improvement over what they had four years ago on Railroad Avenue. The Republicans will never be outdone here. A quarter mile up the […] [Read More]

Sandy gave reason to switch cable provider away from Cablevision to AT&T

on
For several years now I have been aggressively pursued by AT&T’s U-Verse to dump Cablevision. After numerous evaluations I just could not make the numbers work to make the switch. Then a stormy gal named Sandy gave me the reason. First, I noticed all those orange generators running at various telephone poles around town. Turned […] [Read More]

Weekend Warriors to the rescue in Greenwich; OG business center still in the dark

on
I saw something this morning which I hadn’t seen in previous storms: A National Guard unit assisting in the cleanup in Greenwich. This was an outfit from New London helping with the removal of the big tree blocking Hillside Road, which is the main entrance to Greenwich High School. Most of the town’s business centers […] [Read More]

Photos of aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in Greenwich, Riverside and Old Greenwich

on
I just added an incredible photo sent from Jacqueline Sheridan, a colleague in NYC, of the flooding of a tunnel in battery Park next to her apartment building. See the 12′ 7 sign and where the water is. Thanks for sending, Jackie. Another colleague Jack Condon sent a photo of the dangling crane which is […] [Read More]
