Westchester's Pop Culture
Quick: Do you know who sat in Rush Limbaugh's radio-host chair before the big dittohead? Three local filmmakers—Seth Kramer of Red Hook, New York; Daniel A. Miller of Cold Spring, New York; and Jeremy Newberger of Yorktown Heights, all from the Garrison, New York-based Ironbound Films—certainly do. The three were fans of the controversial Morton Downey, Jr. long before they knew each other. Recently, they made a documentary about the firebrand talk show host. Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie will have its premiere on April 19 at the Tribeca Film Festival, which will also host three other screenings of the movie.

Who's building, selling, buying, and who's profiting from our favorite contact sport: real estate
It’s easy to imagine the former life of this stately, elegant, and timeless 1903 stucco English manor house (known as Treetops) and its surrounding sweeping grounds where the past and present blend seamlessly. Telltale signs of its historic past are evident through all 16 rooms, including a front-to-back entrance hall, exquisite moldings and millwork, high ceilings, period hardware, original hardwood floors, and distinctive windows. The estate was built on land steeped in history. As the story goes, John Jay, the country’s first chief fustice, owned the surrounding 400-plus acres, then known as Katonah’s Wood.

For Insatiable Westchester Diners
I’m just going to put it out there: All you can eat buffets scare me, and it’s not because of food safety—it’s because I find them filled with tension. The way that I see it, and AYCE buffet is financial football, with some diners viewing the buffet as a way to get more than they pay for. In opposition, the restaurateurs are trying to profit from diners with defensive moves that preserve the slim margins to be made with food. Generally, it’s a sport that renders food quality the loser.
