      I love DC Banks on Tuesday at 8:50. Last night was a different cast, especially the blond actress(just below DC Banks). What’s going on with this series? Is it over, will it return? Really want to know. Thanks. E. V.

      I love “Treasures of New York”! Each episode makes me realize over and over how my childhood and the rest of my life have been ennobled by the people who cared to develop art in the subways and create the beautiful grand building of the American Museum of Natural History.

      I saw something interesting on the NYC Parks show tonight. A statue in Pelham Bay Park was labeled “Excelsion”. It didn’t make any sense to me. The NYS motto is “Excelsior”. Was it a sculptor’s error?

      CAN’T YOU PUT DETAILS OF THE WHOLE SERIES INSTEAD OF REPEATING EPISODES AS ABOVE? WHO’S IN CHARGE OF PREPARING THIS ABSURD WEBSITE?

      The program on the FDR Memorial barely mentions that the park is located on a wonderful island with a community of 14,000 persons living here. We have a history
      dating back many centuries and 6 landmark structures. Come visit this wonderul
      island from the south end FDR Memorial to the charming Lighthouse Park on the northern tip. You will not be disappointed.

      I have yet to figure out what FDR had to do with this sliver of an island in the East River? Yes, they named the island after him…but was there any PERSONAL connection to FDR? Did he ever step foot on this island? I am sure this park is a lovely tribute to FDR and constructed with love and care….buy again, why and what’s the connection? Sort of like Mt. Rushmore, which only had a connection to TR….but at least that is interesting just in its sheer brazen boldness of sculpting a mountain, therein lies the twist and selling point.

      To pay homage to FDR on a island in the East River that happened to be named after him? I would rather take the drive to Hyde Park.

      Does anyone know who wrote the music for the Stanford White episode? Specifically the piano piece that was played while they discussed White’s death?

      I just watched the Stanford White biography today what a great creative mind he was, now when I walk into those NY buildings that I always admired so much for its beautiful ornate interiors, I know who was the man responsible for my delight.

      KUTE puff piece about Barnard. No focus on most of the real issues that make it great institution. Boo!

      Just watched the Barnard program. I hope the world has changed since I was in HS and am so thankful that there are still educators who understand how life-transforming it can be to attend an all-women school. It really changed my life. I was free to wear my glasses without being teased thus could finally read the equations on the blackboard and show I knew the right answers. I no longer worried that if I seemed too smart it would make my boyfriend feel diminished. It was so liberating to me intellectually. I have two graduate degrees from Columbia and had a highly successful career. I have two sons but if I had a daughter I would totally encourage her to go to a college like Barnard. PS: I did not attend Barnard so please know my comments are genuine.
