What’s New

What a fitting day to be sending you this newsletter from NYC, where the crowds are going crazy downtown celebrating our victory at the death of Osama bin Laden, nearly 10 years after 9/11. A HUGE HEARTFELT THANK YOU to our US Troops, and all their friends and families who have sacrificed over the last 10 years to make this day possible! I can only hope some of my many NYC friends and family, lost on 9/11, are resting a bit more peacefully now.

Have you been to NYC? Please Tell Us About It !!!! I know some of you signed up for this newsletter just to receive the FREE NYC Insider Mini Guide…and now your amazing NYC trip is over. But, before you leave me, I would LOVE if you would tell me about your New York City Vacation.

ScoreBig is my new favorite way to get HUGE ticket discounts – YOU pick YOUR price! Yankees, Mets, Knicks, Jets, Concerts and Broadway Shows (good ones!). Check the discounts others received, make your offer and get an instant answer. Done!
