The holidays are a time for friends, family, shopping, food, and fun. Make no mistake, we’re down for all of that. But the holidays are also an ideal time to take stock of our lives, support our community, and help others. For our first holiday issue, we devoted a great deal of attention to local charities in the Northern Westchester area. Each charity does incredible work to better the lives of children, adults, and animals, facing disease and daily challenges head on.
We also gave a spotlight to the many fantastic businesses in our community. Whether it’s a delicious restaurant or a local store for holiday shopping, there are so many incredible places for people to enjoy this season. Grab a few memorable gifts and enjoy a well deserved dinner on the way home. Fortunately our “Shop Local” sections and 2022 Holiday Gift Guide will provide the perfect suggestions.
Our front cover this issue is simple yet direct. Designed by creative director and owner Justin Negard, these modern forms showcase the bright glow that comes with the holiday season. Around the bright star shape is a collection of colorful patterns symbolizing community and celebration. Some see Times Square, others see a Christmas star. We’ll let you find your own meaning.
The back cover for this issue is “Ground Level” by Richard Chandler. This oil on canvas masterpiece splashes color and motion to the streets of New York City. Chandler’s style is unforgettable and truly unique.
