New York City Museums in the Upper East Side

What to do in museums of

the upper east side

what NY socialites do in 10021

A New York Socialite is brought up to be cultured, educated and to love and be passionate about the arts. There is no greater appreciation than support and patronage of museums. While it does not always require a wing be named after a socialite family, love of art can be expressed in a multitude of ways. This blog is an expression for the love of art in New York Museums. You can even call it a passion.

In the News with Jeff Greenfield – Mark Halperin

Sun, Apr 25, 2010, 7:30pm

Mark Halperin, is editor-at-large and senior political analyst of TIME, covering politics, elections and debates for the magazine and TIME.com. He is the co-author (with John Heilemann) of the New York Times bestseller, Game Change. Game Change has changed the landscape of political journalism to reveal the turn of events and the inside story on the Obama, Clinton, McCain and Palin campaigns. Some of the questions explored in the book are: How did Obama convince himself that, despite the thinness of his resume, he could somehow beat the odds to become the nation’s first African American president? How did the tumultuous relationship between the Clintons shape – and warp – Hillary’s supposedly unstoppable bid? What was behind her husband’s furious outbursts and devastating political miscalculations? Why did McCain make the novice governor of Alaska his running mate? And was Palin merely painfully out of her depth – or troubled in more serious ways? Join us for this fascinating discussion as Jeff Greenfield interviews Mark Halperin on the book, as well on most recent political developments. Book signing for Game Change to follow this event.
