A New Year – and a New Era in NYC?

Non Profit Marketing 360

Happy New Year to all. During Bloomberg’s time in office, developers had, more or less, free reign in NYC, and there was not one development plan that the administration didn’t wholeheartedly back. And there appeared nothing that the administration wouldn’t do to make sure big developments happened, no matter what the community or anyone else had to say. We hope the court’s decisions will set a new standard for the protection of public space in our City.

NYC has added 4 seconds to each crosswalk.

Let us begin by respectfully noting the tenth anniversary of the attacks in New York City, on the Pentagon, and on the thwarted attack in Shanksville PA on September 11th. The overwhelming trend among early adopters in these fields is (a) definitely adopt, or at least keep an eye on Google+, and (2) don’t invest in Google+ to the detriment of all the good work and great contacts you have developed via other social media.

We recently spoke with Steve Frillmann, executive director of Green Guerillas , a nonprofit organization that supports hundreds of community gardens (and gardeners) in New York City. Out of that relationship came a realization of a “shared DNA&# – a commitment to enrich the lives of city residents, one neighborhood at time.

At first there were short jaunts around the neighborhood, followed by organized running events in Baltimore, and then “destination” runs in New York City, Phoenix, Orlando, etc. While starting a new business is rarely seen as a sport, there are many parallels. In developing this consulting practice, my primary goal is to connect seniors with the best resources in Baltimore.
