Party Invitation! Monday, May 9th <by barbaJones@yahoo.com 5/8/2005> (0 replys)
If you are
1) moving to Harlem or THINKING of moving to Harlem
and want to check out the neighborhood
2) a parent of a small child and you don't know where
they hell you'll be able to send your child to school (progressive, academically excellent public school!)
3) a music fan who wants to hear some amazing music
from a rasta musician (okay, there'll only be a few
minutes of this, but still . . .)
4) a fan of the award-winning author Walter Dean Myers
5) a fan of Philip Seymour Hoffman and his acting
6) Just looking for something festive to do on the way
from after on Monday -- to celebrate spring or just
cadge some wine. . .
THEN, please, come to a party tomorrow night, Monday,
May 9th from 6:30-8:30 in a townhouse at 136 W. 121st
This is a party to celebrate a book (HERE IN HARLEM by
award-winning author Walter Dean Myers) and to
celebrate Hamilton Heights Academy (the little,
school which two of my children ). Anyway, it's really
just a book party -- wine, cheese, books, an author.
But there will also be some live music (15 minutes)
and very very short readings by actors from Philip
Seymour Hoffman's theater company (they are
excellent!). The party's in a townhouse, with a
garden, on a spring evening. In other words: fun.
This was initially solely a fundraiser for the school
but we've had a lot of contributions from people who
can't come to the party, so now it's turning into just
a party! You can donate what you wish $15-$25, or just
say you are coming as my
guest (spell it right! Barbara Jones). Just come! And
tell any other interested parties to come as well.
WHERE IS THIS PARTY? DIRECTIONS:
The party is in a townhouse at 136 W. 121st Street,
between 7th Avenue and Lenox.
DIRECTIONS: Take the A, B, C, or D train to 125th
Street. Walk south on St. Nicholas to
W. 121st Street. Go east on the south side of W.
121st Street for one and one half blocks.
OR take the 2 or 3 train to 125th Street; walk four
blocks south on Lenox Avenue and ½ block west on W.
Greenwich or Manhattan Housesitting for July <by Chi & Andie Chan 5/6/2005> (0 replys)
My name is Andie Miller-Chan. My husband Chi Chan and I adopted our daughter Morgan from Hunan this past September. She will be 2 years old on July 8th.
My husband Chi is a broker/analyst for a company in London, UK. Their USA offices are in Greenwich, CT. I am trying to find us a housesitting spot in Greenwich or Manhattan for July.My husband is British born Chinese, I am a New Yorker. I am really homesick and also want our daughter to spend time in the states each year so that she can know her US family and friends. If this arrangement worked out this year, we would ideally want to do it each July. I then remembered what a wonderful network of people FCC can be. We are international members of FCC/NY and it is through their help that we were able to find our wonderful agency, Alliance for Children despite the fact that we live in the UK.
I know that many families in Greenwich & Manhattan have summer homes and do not wish to leave their winter homes vacant. If you could put out your feelers or post on your children's school bulletin boards, I would be so very grateful. We have excellent references both from my husband's employers as well as personal references from Greenwich, Rye and NYC.
In exchange for your help, can I extend an open invitation to you & your families to visit us in London. We have a big Victorian house two blocks from the waterside with excellent transportation into the center of the city....20 minutes to Bond St/Oxford Street(Selfridges), 10 minutes to Canary Wharf. And we love visitors from the states.
Let me know if you think you may be able to help.
