Fire destroys several buildings in Fire Island’s Cherry Grove


Cherry Grove Fire Island Fire

A fire swept the Cherry Grove section of Fire Island early Friday morning destroying several buildings including two popular gay vacation destinations, the Grove Hotel and Ice Palace.

UPDATE: has learned that the Ice Palace nightclub was not destroyed and may have only  suffered smoke damage.  The owners of the club are evidently waiting for access to the venue to survey the damage.  We will keep you posted!

It’s Christmas Time on the Upper East Side [photos]


Christmas Time on the Upper East Side by‘s consumer expert, Donna Winters, challenged us all to get out and enjoy Christmas Time in the City.  Late last week, Charles Winters took us on a tour of the holiday decor that Lower Manhattan had to offer.  Now that I’m back in New York City for Winter break, I wanted to take you on a tour of my neighbor- Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

That’s my building above.  They always go all out with the Christmas Decorations.  We’ve got wreaths and flowers all throughout the lobby as well as more Christmas trees than you can count, including this one above the front doorway.

Here are some more pictures of Christmas decorations on Manhattan’s Upper East Side:

NYSE Christmas Tree’s consumer expert Donna Winters challenged us all earlier this week to get out and see the Christmas Time in the City as she took us on a tour of what Knoxville, Tennessee had to offer this holiday season!  That’s why I decided to get out and explore my neighborhood of Lower Manhattan to check out what is going on this Holiday Season.  Above and below are pictures of the giant Christmas Tree at the New York Stock Exchange.

It’s Christmas Time in the City: Knoxville edition


Christmas Time in the CIty Knoxville Feature

Even if you don’t live near or in a big city, you have a city near you that is decked out for the holidays. I encourage everyone to visit “the city” during the Christmas Holidays. It is a great opportunity to support your local businesses and charities.

This week my husband and I dressed up a little bit (well at least I did) and went into the city to see “It’s a wonderful life” on the big screen in an old historical theater, the Tennessee Theatre, located in nearby Knoxville, Tennessee.
