When the demolition team attacked the 72,000-square-foot mansion Inisfada late last year, a lot more than just bricks and oak timbers were shattered. So was an important monument in the history of American women, says Chuck Idol.
“The house really was dedicated to women and Mrs. Brady’s fight for women’s rights,” the Port Washington resident said of Genevieve Brady, who with her husband, industrialist Nicholas Brady, started construction on the Manhasset mansion in 1916, finishing it four years later.
Three of us went into Manhattan from Manhasset on a recent Sunday morning. The round-trip, off-peak fares on the Long Island Rail Road totaled $48.
We could have driven the 40 miles to mid-town and back for about $25, according to AAA. That cost includes gas and considers everything from tire wear to depreciation. The Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge (nee 59th Street Bridge) is free to cross, and it isn’t impossible to find free on-street parking on weekends. The advantage of taking a car over the train is $23 for three people, and $7 for two people. The LIRR wins only if I were going to drive alone.
New year. New resolutions. Invariably, that usually involves losing weight and doing something to get yourself into a better state of health, particularly with the upcoming swimsuit season looming. Setting up a workout regimen can be an overwhelming proposition with the psychological and emotional aspect of it at times being far more daunting than the actual act of hitting the gym. But it needn’t be that intimidating if you let common sense be your guide.
Having survived the polar vortex that recently swept across our region, shopping for a swimsuit may not be at the top of our priority list. It is, however, a necessary evil that we all face from year to year. Whether you’re planning a warm-weather escape within the next couple of weeks or are counting down the days until summer, we’ve consulted local experts to bring you tips for purchasing the perfect swimsuit.
“Trend wise, we’re seeing a lot of earth tones [this year]. Vix is doing a whole tribal collection,” said Nicole Catanzano, manager of Manhasset boutique Inside the Armoire. “A lot of the one-pieces are doing classic silhouettes but with modern takes, so they have rosettes, they have hardware on them, they have V-necks. They’re just really flattering,” she added.
In the quest to look buff in a swimsuit, the unfortunate reality is that despite all the dieting and trips to the gym, there will be times when you might need a little help in the form of plastic surgery. According to Dr. Laurence Glickman of the Long Island Plastic Surgery Group, the following are a handful of the most frequent procedures patients come in to undergo when cutting carbs or working out with a personal trainer just isn’t enough.
