Schulenberg’s Page: New York, Part CL

Guest Diary
Those last days of 1968!  There was so much going on — aside from all the political chaos. It was as if New York was on an energetic social cultural binge to balance the energy expended on warfare, police riots and anti war demonstrations!  The city was in full swing, the anger subverted and filtered into […]...

Schulenberg’s Page: New York, Part CXLIX

Guest Diary
So after 1968 and all its turmoil we were staggering into 1969 with Nixon telling us in his inaugural speech that we “should all stop shouting at one another“! That was easier said than done! But the Paris Peace Talks were planned with Henry Cabot Lodge going as administrator. He had previously been the American ambassador to South Vietn... READ MORE

There had been a lot during the Depression but it was being said that this was worse! Johnny Meyer decided to end the […]... READ MORE

December, 1968: New York City continued to roil with dissent! While there were wildly decorated hippie head shops opening uptown and downtown with even wilder merchandise, those same establishments were in full support of the protests against the draft, the war and the government in general. Downtown, the Lower East Side was beginning to be thou... READ MORE

1968 was staggering toward 1969 with Richard Nixon elected President and the war in Vietnam continuing while cities were still seething with riots and demonstrations against the war and the drafting of young men.  I was bunkered in my apartment working on daily illustration project deadlines with only New York Pacifica Network’s listener supp...

November, 1968: Richard Nixon was now the President of the United States! A staunch Democrat, my mother said, “I never liked him, I don’t trust him and I didn’t vote for him but he was elected President so I’ll have to respect him!”  That was the opinion of a lot of voters but even as that […]...

We had experienced the election of Richard Nixon earlier in the month after experiencing the most disruptive period of my life.  Pundits were comparing the anti-war and political protests to the period before, during and after the US Civil War! It was easy to believe! Rita Gardner worked with a company called BMA and I had done several jobs [&... READ MORE

No Holds Barred: Meeting Mizrahi

Guest Diary
It seems like everyone I know actually knows and loves Isaac Mizrahi. I mean EVERYONE! I never met him. But I have bought his sheets, towels, pajamas, at least 15 cardigans, 8 pair of moccasins 11 handbags, not to mention his Kleenex boxes and 1-800-Flowers. I think I “own” so much Isaac that I must […]... READ MORE

No Holds Barred: Gone to the Dogs

Guest Diary
I have almost given up on all shopping. Maybe I’m getting too old to care. Clothes don’t call me. I’ve never been a shoe ‘n bag gal. Cosmetics are hopeless. Malls scare me as potential terrorist locations. Online bargains are flatlining and I am sick of “return labels.” Even hardware stores and stationary boutiques leave […]... READ MORE
