It’s Fundraiser Time Again

Since we’re entirely self-supporting, we’re reaching out, as we did a year ago, for operating funds 


Hello, Readers—

Whether you’re a NYCitywoman long-hauler or a newcomer, we’re delighted that our website—free of ads or promotions, but full of wide-ranging, thought-provoking takes on matters of interest to New Yorkers (who aren’t just New Yorkers and aren’t just women, despite our name)—is a part of your lives.

Those of us producing this website are newspaper and magazine veterans. We publish online, but print and long-form journalism are in our DNA. For those of you who consumed (and continue to consume) newspapers and magazines—and who thrive on deeper-than-byte-sized articles—we’re here for you.

But (here comes the pitch) since we’re entirely self-supporting, we’re reaching out, as we did a year ago, for operating funds. (None of us are getting paid; this website is a labor of love.) 

What have we got planned in the future? Lots of nostalgia. Our Night the Music Came Alive series, which is nothing if not eclectic, continues apace. We started with recollections of Billie Holiday at the Loews Sheridan, the Rat Pack in Las Vegas, and Ornette Coleman at the Five Spot. Coming up? Judy Garland at Carnegie Hall, Neil Diamond in Atlantic City, the Beatles in D.C., Maria Callas doing Tosca at the Met, Cyndi Lauper doing Girls Just Want to Have Fun on video, the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane at Golden Gate Park.

We’ve got other sorts of reminiscences for you too—of bygone restaurants (Schrafft’s … Toffenetti’s … Le Café Arnold) and department stores (Bonwit Teller … Best & Company … Lord & Taylor). We’ll delve into wearable nostalgia—the ongoing vintage clothing phenomenon. We’ll profile New York neighborhoods from Washington Heights and Riverdale to Bay Ridge and Bayside—now vs. how we knew and lived in them when we were young.

If you have article ideas for us, by all means send them to We’re here to serve, enlighten, and entertain you (while also satisfying our unstoppable urge to write and edit). Please help out if you can. We plan to stay around for a long, long time.

Thank you.

Love and best wishes,
The NYCitywoman Team
