"From workhouse connect in. Aj Benza vein. he likes to be walked on a leash and play really dirty. Kinky sex tapes is the GUY. Put the COP in the peacock network. Okay Bitch Hey everybody. Ag Benza. Here with same as bitch this Asia. Podcast for me. I twenty twenty. I was going to tell you a handful of Hollywood type stories. You know Tabloid type stories that I've lined up and then a story came across my laptop this morning by my buddy bird turns and I thought this is. This is too fun not tell and I can interject some of my some of my my past history on on this episode as well so I think it ends up being something pretty cool to hear about and it a lot to do with the city of New York and this pandemic in the lockdown at Cetera. So many of you already know about a little show of support that has turned into a new custom in New York City. It is a very beautiful and emotional gesture that the tugs on my heart. Every time I see a video of it on social media or the news. Or what have you? And it's that nightly moment when the city of New Yorker the city of New York and its and its inhabitants. Lean out their windows or stand on their terraces or simply stop in the street and start applauding. The city's first responders at seven PM when they get off their shift. Doctors Nurses Hospital aged. You name it anybody and everybody. Who's out there on the frontlines? Battling this God damn flu and every night for the last several weeks when the clock strikes seven PM The city erupts in this nightly outpouring of support for healthcare workers and such and now people have added a soundtrack to their applause which is as familiar as the skyline itself It's a song. The city is too familiar with since the New York. Yankees have been playing it on those summer nights when the Yankees went big game in the Bronx it's also the song that revived the sagging career of that skinny Italian kid who grew up across the river and that would be Frank Sinatra. So look we all know the lyrics. It's a song that plays all too often. In the heads of New Yorkers people firmly believe from deep within the dark purple of their hearts that if you can stay alive in our city if you can keep your head above water and above the doubters if you can stay afloat in the dark ocean of danger and opportunity then anywhere else on earth. I don't care where you go be a snap. It's also a song. Playfully reminds all of us. Who DID MAKE IT IN NEW YORK? that we need not worry about going anywhere else because we know we made it in. New York and we can make it anywhere for me sometimes lyrics to song just kind of cement the fact that no matter what forces not my city on its s whether it's a bunch of terrorists or an invisible virus. I don't feel good about not being there. Not being able to help my city back on its feet. I don't care how far away you move from New York City. When you see hurting like that the way it is now trying to put its mouthpiece back in after it got beat up as trying to beat the bell you just WanNa put everything else down and you WanNa be there for the city. That never abandoned us. You WanNa be a part of it and so I sit here in Los Angeles. Two thousand four hundred forty nine miles away from my last department. On Ninety Five Horatio Street on apartment. Who's back windows faced the twin towers so the Tarot is real for me. I'll only not that. I saw them come down but that they were always two towers. That looked into my bedroom every night. It's something that a lot of New Yorkers feel those towers were like parents almost because no matter where you weren't in the city. If you looked up they were always looking down at you. The kind of had our backs for so long. But as I sit in this place in La so far away. I can only imagine how how I'd love to be one of those people who stop whatever it is doing and rush to a window and here. Frank Sinatra's wonderful voice fill every canyon courthouse every vacant block an empty bar. There must be amazing when me and my Buddy Neil Gumbo raced back to New York City. Like an hour after the second tower fell I remember making calls my cousin Phil who were in Manhattan as a building inspector and a lot of his work was downtown Manhattan so he knew that area very well in fact fill believe it or not found a box cutter on the roof of a building across from the twin towers that had Arabic writing on it and he actually turned it into the FBI. It's crazy shit but as we're going across America Mean Gumbel and listening to Michael Savage Savage Nation Radio. Show and all these events all these things are being carried out real time. It was insane but my stomach felt like but I remember calling Phil and you know and just trying to get through to him which was impossible by the second day in the car We recall and fill a lot more and hopefully I just want to know if he can put us anywhere near Ground Zero to help out. If anybody can do it he could do it. And it wasn't until sometime in the third day of our driving we heard about this bucket brigade that was gonna be forming and was for me and it was going to pol life and limb from the smoking pile. Most people on their professional firefighters in. You know anybody else with that kind of training but there were some civilians on that line and I wanted to be there so bad and when when I finally got through the fill to fill? He said he'd he'd do what he can. But by the time he got to the city the next day and I still can recall seeing the angry smoke above the city being visible from deep inside Pennsylvania as we drove and the odor of death and melted steel and plastic. And you know God knows whatever the hell else was in that jet fuel you could smell that until Delfi as well and by that time there are already hundreds of men more qualified than me who volunteered to do that. Necessarily dirty work. I just you know we wanted to get our hands full but With no room on the line instead you know we went downtown. We stayed nearby. We just comforted big strong men and women and and and most of them reduced to tears all the time all day long we collected clothes and shoes and brought bags and bags of stuff to the front line. I mean it was. I never been a part of something like that It was you know to say you'll never forget. It is another another thing entirely but to be there and And when I say I don't mean Ground Zero itself. I mean surrounding areas within a mile or two It was just. The city was never liked. That there was no did just was no racism. It felt like that was out the window and felt like well didn't feel like it was everybody. Was there for each other. Everybody had each other's back. It was wonderful even though when you look over your shoulder behind you the most morbid seen you've ever seen in your life so When you down there you you hug or comfort strangers. It was something of a necessity to do that. You felt you wanted to do it. And nobody was turning away from being comforted. And despite what people say about you. Know Austin New Yorkers We could be. We could be tough to deal with all that Kinda Shit. Most of us are the most compassionate people you'll ever meet and a lot of us walk around with a heavy heart as it is and this just added to it so hugging and kissing someone suffering second nature to New Yorkers and look strong Italian. Who likes to hug and kiss? You know you can imagine what I want. I was hugging fucking fled pulse but you know There are millions of moments like that all over the city of people being comforted to natural thing to do but with this flu can touch. Anybody can come within six feet of people. Let along wrap your arms around got watch people be upset. Watch people be said? It's it's it's it. Plays Your Heart in the way nine eleven. Didn't it's a different kind of Of of hurt. Look before I tell you the story. Let me get this ad out of the way I fucked up the other day. I didn't say a particular word in this read.

I'm proud to say I do not read The New York Times. The reporters on that paper frequently tell lies in their stories. And the editors who are supposed to vet these stories turn their cheek to the list. Always the left if you know what I mean but I'm GonNa poll a few wonderful bits out of a story in today's New York Times since my buddy said to me. He's one of those friends who puts pals over politics. That's why we get along so well he's blow on red but don't mean Shit when we're together And the story is this with the city in the grip of this corona virus. New York. New York like I mentioned this once again. A part of the city's anthem as it was after nine. Eleven as it still is at police promotion ceremonies. It's such a powerful song that I honestly don't recall what the city felt like without and on top of that I know still have room to hear it another million times and still not be sick of it. It's just really too difficult to imagine that the song didn't almost get made so check this out back in one thousand nine hundred. Seventy seven. Martin Scorsese was making the movie New York New York. You've seen. That Deniro plays the saxophone. I think his name is Jimmy. Doyle movie and Liza Minelli is anyhow. They need the title track. So the prolific songwriting team of John. Candy and Fred Ebb. They've been around forever. They wrote a song and brought it to a meeting with scores. Acn Robert Deniro and lies Manelli to see what they thought and they played a few different songs and scores. Acl lies like them. A Lot. Lies is a Broadway candidate ever Broadway. It makes sense but as they are about to leave Deniro on the other side of the room and he. He weighs his arm to squishy that combine modest. Excuse me Fellas. I'll be right back and goes over and talks to Deniro. Very animated conversation. Lotta arms-flailing couple of Italians talking Kendra and couldn't hear what they were saying but they knew like animated than what they were talking about. Scorsese returns role embarrassed. And he says look you know bobby found the title number. A little lightweight wants to try it again. Once you try to come up with some new stuff so Kanan who are tremendously prolific. And don't need an actor to tell them I didn't like your song. These guys did Chicago and cabaret just a few of the top of my head. They were pissed off. What's his fucking APP is going to tell us that. The songs not good enough now doesn't work that way but it is it is Deniro. It is Liza so they go back to ebbs apartment and in about forty five minutes they write the song called New York New York. Okay and they bring it back and they sing it and this time. Deniro is thrilled with what he heard. So lies is sang. The song on the film's Soundtrack. And it seemed to belong to her. I honestly I can't stand Liza. I shouldn't say can't stand it. I don't really like to hear lies to sing the song she's not a New Yorker. I know she's affiliated with New York at times but she's not a New Yorker she starts at wonderfully but as it bills. She used to do this thing. Wishy waiver arms and get all animated and crazy and to Broadway. If you know what I mean these little to Alain Lebas let us out stop it a little bit too much of a mother in that part of the song so look I think the way she sang it suck it suck them achieve. Mo- out of the song and that Song's got a pair of balls on it and she feminist it in my opinion it's to Broadway anyhow eventually. The song became Frank Song and not hers. Me Tell you what happened at this point. In Time Sinatra is in his early sixties. He recently emerged from this early retirement and there was a very different landscape in America in front of him. You know unfortunately the ring a Ding. Ding days of the rat pack had sailed by and when frank stuck his head out of a hole and began to sing again. He had to adapt quickly to a music world. That was more led Zeppelin and pink Floyd Than Perry Como and Jerry Vale and there are a lot of examples of Sinatra struggling to be relevant around this time. Several authors have written books on this subject alone and they make no bones about saying frank you know fought this ambivalent battle against the new music sometimes trying to make some of these songs. His own or very underwhelming efforts And he was just straining to be relevant again and I told you about the story of him phoning a young manager named Jerry Weintraub from His place I believe in a day and they sat up on the roof and frank said. Kim. I'm Cook I'm done I I I don't know what else to do. I feel like I'm just at a spot and I can't get the hell out of it. My feet is stuck in the sand. I need help. He knew that Weintraub done something. Really significant for Elvis Presley when he was really young so he figured maybe can do some for his career. And I've told you about this story of those two guys being up on the roof And Frank wanted to be king of the hill again. And that was the meeting where While Jerry Weintraub who would go onto make tens of millions of dollars managing recording artists and eventually producing films like Nashville and diner the karate kid and the oceans thirteen movies. You know he starts pulling the out of his ass because he didn't prepare for this meeting. Thank you said come now. And he so he thought real quickly and said you know frankly. I I think I see you sing an inside. New York City's Madison Square Garden Hundreds of celebrities in the audience. Howard cosell announcing your entrance into the world's greatest arena but then he really hoped frank when he said. But YOU'RE NOT GONNA sing on stage Mr Sinatra. Frank's had kit. Call Me Frank for. Fuck SAKE WOULD. Ya Is all K- Frank. Sorry I don't see you sing on stage. I see you singing inside a boxing ring where all champions belong and francs at kid on sold you save now get to work make it happen so back to the saw it turns out it was actually frank's wife Barbara. Who suggested he covered New York New York? And you know. Frank immediately said now. That's lies is song. I can't do that to her but Barbara persuaded him to play at a nineteen seventy-eight concert in ray at radio city musical a shell that me and my mother and father happened to have gone to and I remember looking in the playbill to see the songs in what order he was GonNa sing them and I remember seeing New York Europe and say I don't know this song. Was this come from well when Frank Sang the number that he almost didn't sing. The fucking house came down and when I say down I mean down because I witnessed my mother stand up to watch the skinny kid. She used to cut school to see saying at the paramount theatre back in the forties And as soon as frank walked out on stage that night and said she gets hungry for dinner at eight Boehm. My mother went right down. I saw her knees. Buckle her aspen right back in his seat. Too weak to stand up now also in the House that night is the Sinatra historian and Radio Personality Jonathan Schwartz he the song and Russia's over the Franken says you got a record. This rank Franks's I will say but even Frank Sinatra couldn't deny how the people in the arena reacted to that song so he reluctantly called Liza Minelli and hinted he may WanNa record it and it was only after Liza said to him. It's okay pimple. Frank it's yours. Then he really got warm to the idea so the following year he recording his ambitious triple album trilogy past present and future and There's a lot of cover versions on this CD. He's singer Billy Joel's just the way you are. He Singing Neil Diamond Song Sung Blue. But he still couldn't get his mind off that song and the wonderful fit of the vagabond shoes of New York New York. So now it's September Nineteenth Nineteen seventy-nine in a studio in Hollywood. He recorded the song at last with a guy named Rob Fen trusts. A member of Sinatra's inner circle One of a bunch of people who were in that room after the final take and they're playing back the song and frank sitting in the engineered share and said he was oblivious to all the noise around him but he just focused on that song and one of his Don. You could see how pleased he was. He wasn't laughing. He wishes slightly smiling. But those who knew him really well new. That's as close as frank was going to get to just complete jubilation so the song would eventually closes concerts free years to come. It actually nudged aside my way as the final song of most of those performances And it was last. It was the last song he performed in public when him and a bunch of stars got on stage at L. A. Strike Auditorium in Nineteen ninety-five during his tribute for his eightieth birthday. But then a lot of you who've been on this ride with me for the last three years you know what happened after that show at the shrine. Those of you heard me tell my story before. No that Frank Sinatra then sang for a handful of friends and family inside the closed piano bar of the Four Seasons Hotel at one am yet to stand the night of the show while while these artists is singing on stage and doing this tribute stuff for Frank. He's in this is in the audience with Barbara. Not Looking Happy. Know Frank was a little bit. Let's say not like. He has some Jack. Daniel's put it that way. There were some instances where he was arguing with. Barbara during the show. Somebody tried to help them up step. He pulled his hand back. He wasn't in the best fucking moot but one o'clock in the morning he wants to sing in the fourth season. I was lucky enough to be there after his daughter. Nancy called me because I just been with the concert and now she calls me is about to go to bed. I just took my suit off. And she says three. I'll never forget. Daddy wants to sink and there I was. I raised over two four seasons hotel. Put My suit back on. Obviously an I'm fifteen. Twenty feet away from the chairman of the board said he singing summer win all the way in the wee small hours of the morning. Just frank and Lasette Jack Daniels in his hand and a stool does he get better than that. Didn't even need a microphone guys. It was that small room. It was an incredible full circle moment for me in my life because I'm a kid that was raised on the music of that man who a man who made my father proud to being Italian. Nanni people proud to be an Italian and my mother. He made her as we as a school girl over many years in front of my eyes and then to see him up close in such an intimate setting with his family. Next to me I have a hard time putting into words and you guys know me. I can talk about anything especially when it also concerns me but this was such a big moment in my life. I and I look. There are a lot of moves I had to make to get close to this man. I had to make friends with Nancy Sinatra. Who happened to be coming to New York to pose for playboy and and do some publicity. I was data talk to her. We went out many many times for dinner. I got to know and Love Nancy. I had the battle with powerful publicists and a prolific producer named George slaughter. Who denied me a ticket to this eightieth birthday party at the shrine because I was writing stories in my column that challenged who these people had hired to saying that night. I didn't like some of the people they thought would be up on stage and frank would appreciate. I didn't think frank care or even knew a bunch of these ours or a handful them and that bothered me and eventually I had to appeal to frank's childhood friend. A mobster named Lupu Cello also known as Louis domes and it was low who sent me to L. A. With first class tickets to go to the show but I I had to sit with Lou in the back of his bakery on Second Avenue Been Arrows and had to make my case and low. No little of the problems I was having with The publicist associated with Franken. He told Nancy he wanted to help me. So long as I only wrote good things about the show. I told them I said. Of course I won't even though I'm not happy with some of these acts I won't be critical at all he said what's this about. Who THE BLUEFISH. I said it's could in the blowfish Lou not bluefish and he said blowfish blowfish what the Fox different same shit. I said you're right. That's my point and we laugh but anyhow I promised him I wouldn't write anything critical about the show. Shall we makes the call to the people that back frank and that sealed my fate as attending the show that night so I was thrilled over the years. People asked me when they wonder. Why is it that the song works so much better with frank than it did with Liza and I've heard Tina Sinatra give reasons for it and it's hard? It's hard to argue the point. She says her father identified with the song because he grew up in Hoboken New Jersey. He would look across the river at Skyline. He wanted to be there he wanted to be on the other side she says and I can only imagine what a wonderful thing. It must be to be a part of that ritual in New York City every night at seven pm when folks start lasting that song onto the streets below and interestingly enough some people tried other songs before settling on New York one woman was blasting heroes by David Bowie. Another was playing Bette Midler wind beneath my wings but when that song came out of there with nose people seem to walk right through the notes. it didn't stop in the street. It didn't do the same thing for them. But when New York New York caught on as the soundtrack behind the applause people stopped everything and went about thanking the first responders and clapping themselves until the hands felt numb. And I can tell you right now. Not The song that makes everybody feel like that person that everyone is king of the hill. Top of the heat and when you're standing on a hill or a heat it's a very natural thing if you're a good person to lower your hand and help get. Someone backed up on their feet. Sometimes it's child sometimes. It's an elderly person. Sometimes it's a city in New York. I'm AJ Benza. That was you show for me. I twenty twenty talk. Thank you for listening famous.

Episode 19: StubHub Ticket Floors, New York, New York
"Episode number nineteen inside season. Two of the pinstripe planes podcast is brought to you by my tax refund. As little as it is at least it can cover the cost of doing this thing. Welcome to the pinstripe lanes podcast. Here's radio host and lifelong Yankees fan ralphie overs. Trad? Welcome to episode. Number nineteen the pinstripe lanes podcast. I am just surprised as you are that we are three weeks into the new gangqi season three weeks into the new season of the pinstripe lanes podcast. And we have dropped a podcast every single episode. We've had a guest every single episode as well flashback to the first episode of the season with Giancarlo Stanton and last week, Gary Sheffield, and of course, everybody Jimmy MacKay of the pint cast no Jimmy this week. Although we could use them to continue to break down, the new Severino news and all the other. I mean Sanchez. We're taping this during the Astros Yankees game. The finale, hopefully, we avoid the sweep Sanchez out of the lineup because he's got some tightness. But they don't think he's going to go on the I L four it just one thing after another. It's just try to get to look we'll the all star break at five hundred at this point. I mean what what are we doing here? Why do we doing? We'll tell you what we're doing this week on the show. We have a special guest this week a surprise guest this week as we talk later in the episode about Frank's. Sinatra's New York New York about. Being played at Yankee Stadium for wins and losses will talk a little bit about Kate Smith, and God bless America to and now the fact that that hasn't been featured at the stadium this season and a surprise guest will join us during that conversation. I will not tell you who before we get to that conversation, though, we'll talk about stub hub ticket floors. We talked about this a little bit in last season to the pinstripe planes podcast. The fact that there are minimum set for every level of tickets sold on stubhub for Yankees game. So we'll talk about the floors. That are set what your best bang for the buck is what you're looking for when you're trying to get that good deal on a ticket for a game via stub hub. And then again, of course, the Frank Sinatra New York New York conversation with a special guest a surprise gust. You're probably not gonna guess who it is either. So don't even try just gotta listen episode number nineteen of the pinstripe lanes podcast. We get it. All right now. Number nineteen of the pinstripe planes podcast. And by the way, thank you for rating reviewing and subscribing on I tunes Google play. And wherever else you find podcast. That's where you could find us. If you stumble on a onto us via some other way, and maybe the place that you normally get podcasts. We don't we're not there. Let us know. We're not on iheart. I think I think we're going to change that soon. Hopefully. I were pretty much ever off. I think Spotify and the after mentioned apple and Google tune in. We we sent a request in a tune in. They weren't updating season two. They have since fixed that so tune in Stitcher Spotify and everywhere else. Okay. Something I noticed after the Yankees first homestand prices on stub hub, specifically the floors, which have changed a little bit. We touched on this last season. But basically, the Yankees a few years ago went to paperless. Ticketing? So meaning you had to either have the ticket on your phone or you had to get it from the box office or a TicketMaster outlet when they did that they got out of their partnership with stubhub. Stubhub was partnered at the time with pretty much everyone in the Yankees. We're trying to set a precedent by saying stub hub. You're not going to price our tickets at whatever price you want or whatever price the market dictates. We want to set that we want to set a certain value for the tickets. Therefore, we're not going to allow you guys access at least to the electronic tickets. You could still get a a hard ticket from stubhub. But of course, then they made it difficult. There was the whole lawsuit. Where stubhub was trying to set up an office close to Yankee Stadium. They had to go down by that mall and the parking garage ramp over there, which I walked to on a number of different occasions to get tickets nonetheless, halfway through the season, the Yankees realized that stubhub is in fact, a valuable partner more so than they thought and they switch things up. They they got back into a deal with stubhub it as a part of that deal they mandated, and this was kind of a first of its kind deal. I think stubhub is done it now for other teams in other leagues. But they mandated that stub hub set ticket floors for each tier of ticket. That is so the Yankee Stadium a ticket floor is basically saying, okay, I have this bleachers seat ticket and say, I'm a season ticket holder. And I just want to get rid of it. I can't list it for three dollars. There is a minimum that I have to list it for otherwise. I can't put it on stubhub. If. You're wondering for Bleacher tickets. I believe the minimum on that is nine or ten dollars. I have seen pinstripe pass tickets as low as six which is probably the best value when it comes to the ticket floors on stub hub. However, if you're if you wanna go premium, and you're trying to get a really good seat at a really cheap price. I think the best bang for your buck is going to be the champions level seats. Now, the champion seats are third base. First base in just into the outfield. They're just past the legend seats, which go from first to third along the infield. The first five rows the next section sections to the left and right of those respectively are the champion seats in the great thing about the champion seats the floor. Autumn's one fifty I think the face I wanna say is like three fifty maybe four hundred dollars a ticket. So the floor is one fifty if you can get them for one fifty it's really not a bad deal. Because in addition to yourself. And drinks and water and Dunkin donuts coffee and lots as that are included all your foods included as well. And it slightly elevated from your ballpark fare. Yeah. You have your hot dogs or sausage or French fries and your nachos. But you will get some sushi and some salads and some sandwiches and other things of that nature. Private restrooms bartenders full bar in-seat services. Well, so again as far as your bang for the buck and to compare it a legend seat the floor on those this year is three fifty which is one hundred dollars more than the season ticket price for a legend seat rela I'm trying to think of other clubs in the stadium the Jim beam sweet if you if you buy a ticket in that section that has the access the floor on those as fifty dollars. But again, you're only getting peanuts popcorn. And I don't even think you don't get soft drinks you get free refills in Jim beam. Delta sweet, you do get the peanuts and popcorn and you get free soft drinks to get the free coffee as well. But that floor is one fifty. Beautiful seats because you're right behind home. But you are in the two hundred level as opposed to the champion seats, which are feel level. So again, you've got the different floors. If your first of all, it's good to know that there are floors because if you're waiting it out before a game, you think a tickets to get cheaper and cheaper and cheaper. It might not it might have already hit its floor A B. It's good to know what the floors are. So that you can judge based on your budget for the game. And you know, again, a champion, obviously, if you're going to spend the one fifty and get the cheapest champions seat that you can you're going to go to the ballpark on an empty stomach. If you're meeting friends before the game for food, or what have you then maybe that's not going to be the case. But as far as again, the ticket floors, you get that pinstripe pass super cheap, and you get some of the grandstand tickets super cheap, but premiums sweet levels. You definitely want to go with champions. And I don't know if he's there because I haven't sat there yet this year. But my man bird is over in the think, it's the kettle one lounge along the first base line in the champion. Sweet. Please tell them we say Hello good, man. All right. When we come back. Frank Sinatra New York, New York, it's being played in the stadium for it's been happening. A while now for both wins and losses. We'll give you a little background on that. And a surprise guest. Joining us to talk about New York, New York which made headlines last year, there's a little bit of a clue for you more pinstripe planes podcast coming up next. And while the backup number nineteen inside season. Two of the pinstripe lanes podcast. I'm ralphie Aversa. Of course, you can find us at pinstripe lanes on all of your favorite social networks. If you hear a little Brislin in the background. We're not as soundproof the room that we tape. The someone's getting a little hot on the twenty first floor of our building here in the financial district. And so we crack the window open on a nice spring evening here in downtown Manhattan Yankees currently playing the Astros finishing up their series before off date, and they come back home White Sox home. In the Bronx this weekend. Take it on the Yankees Friday night, Bernie Williams bobblehead night. I would imagine burn baby burn will be in attendance as well for that. Maybe we'll even throw out the first pitch Yankees, by the way, just today Gardner there. You go solo Homer to lead things off a garden party in. All right. So I promise we talk about Frank Sinatra New York, New York. Hopefully, we'll hear that. After some Yankee wins this weekend up in the Bronx think I'm gonna go to Saturday's game. It's funny. And I've tweeted about this before. But I was when I was a student Syracuse university Marty band deer who is a legendary music publishing executive came to speak at came one of my lecture classes that I'll stay at the time. I was a music industry. Courcelles a a lot of take as an elective. So Marty came and spoke, and he was talking about, you know, the whole publishing game for those that aren't familiar with music publishing. And obviously a lot of my background in my other life is been in music and music business. But basically anytime you hear a song public. Publicly, whether it's at a nightclub or in a commercial or at a stadium, the song writers and producers are receiving some type of royalty on that play in the deals vary with the songwriting and producing they have this point system that they use. So it all varies. But essentially, there's publishing companies like Marty's, and he's got the biggest one in essentially that come in and say, okay, you know, Yankee Stadium you play these songs, we rep these songwriters. These producers, you owe us this amount of money for playing the songs, and there's also licenses that they could buy to do it so on and so forth. But that's essentially the way it works. Marty came to speak Syracuse university, and he told us he was good friends with George Steinbrenner and he went to a Yankees game. And he sat in George Steinbrenner's box. And at the end of the game Yankees one they played Frank Sinatra, New York, New York and. They had the rights to that song Marty's company, and he turns to George and he says you're not paying the publishing fees on the song. What are you talking about and ever since then ever since that time that George happened to invite Marty to the game mardi Bandera in his company collected royalties on Frank Sinatra's, New York, New York, of course, for a long time. It was played only after Yankee wins and after Yankee losses the Liza Minnelli version would play LIZA. I don't know why how it took her took it so long to get to the Minnelli camp. But it did. And they complained and they said look either play it for wins. Like, you do a Franks or don't play at all. And so I don't know if there was going to be a lawsuit or what the deal is going to be. But the Yankees didn't want to deal with the trouble. And now if you go to a game, regardless of whether the keys win or lose they play Frank Sinatra's, New York, New York, of course, that song in the headlines last year during the playoffs after was it. Yes. Game. Three of the AL Diaz. Aaron judge in his bluetooth speaker as little boombox walking by the Red Sox clubhouse blasting New York, New York judges, of course, since come out and said that it wasn't intentional. He wasn't trying to stick it to Robert into their face. Of course, the Red Sox. You know, all that story ends. We don't need to recap it. And in addition to them winning it all then than going on in playing New York New York, both after they won the AL Diaz. And then basically after every series that they want including the World Series, then blast in New York. New York in the clubhouse. If you listen to the podcast last week. I caught up with Gary Sheffield, and I caught up with him at David Ortiz's celebrity golf classic that he has in the Dominican Republic to benefit his children's fund. John rule New Yorker Yenkey fan performed at the golf classic on the Saturday night. I believe her Friday night of the golf classic jar rule performed. And of course, he's got that big. Song New York, right? I think it's called New York New York action. It's got fat Joe on a two. Big Papi, actually stopped the performance to request that song. I kid you not. And so I caught up with big Papi the following morning. And I had to ask him. I was like is this a Saturday morning now actually on the golf course in the Dominican Republic at Qasr compo were staying beautiful resort. And I asked him if like this is going to be a thing. Now that, you know, Red Sox players four replaces fans are going to use these big New York songs to kind of stick. It does Yankee fans I will say this thing just me make everything more than two -taining. You know, a lot of friends in new your friends and family and your earliest one of my favorite artists, and in indus- own Kim out relag it because it's realities is life Sola buzz not about if you're from Boston from New York from from from the Dominican it's all about life life in general. So I remember when the sun today, and that's why I wanted to play last night. Hoppy, thanks for a great weekend. Anything I believe. His intentions, but I don't know what if the Yankees and Red Sox face off again in October. And we don't pull it out. I could see this, and I will say on the flip side of that. If the Yankees win. I don't wanna hear sweet Caroline in the clubhouse. I don't wanna hear trucking up to Boston. I don't wanna hear that dopey Augustan a song. I don't want to hear any of it. Give me some Frank. Gimme some J. Give me some John. Subtract the fire festival in a way. Rap on episode number nineteen of the pinstripe lanes podcast.

Let me see like let me get a good laugh out of this. I'm sure like black. Twitter has like a great response. Let me click in and I couldn't find the original source of like what the fuck this started from or was except for one Mike Serious tweet. That had like a lot of engagement on about was this like if Karen isn't a slurred. Please explain your thoughts. Everyone's dead so that's that's where I'm at emotionally. But what was European Justin. It was very easy to find this pit this week and I have to give it to Justin Bieber's ugly mansion. That quickly became man. I don't know if you've seen the picture but it's basically a to our listeners. If you haven't it really looks like a salad spinner legates. Never yeah no it. Looks like a salad spinner. Some people think it looks like an emergency evacuation copter but it started because someone posted this aerial view of Justin Bieber's home and basically just like I have never seen a house. Uglier this glass circle. That looks like something you would create in the SIMS. Yeah it looks like the Zoe one on one like Fake College to me. That's what I liked Bowling Zoe. One on one I love.

It does come from our. Did she draw this conclusion? Which was my first question. I was like what's going on like I get your home alone aboard honey but like I'd rather go back to DAB. It's like that's crazy she. I guess you're watching some movie. That he was in and then it reminded her of like hers. Game of thrones cameo and then she started watching music videos she said and he said that he's a quote like cool white dude and I was like literally needs not simply is not way but I love Lee have your own unique brands of awful ugly white men Q. And learning it like us like the people that like Ed Sheeran attracts are like mom's like oh like mom means I don't know I've always wondered who the Ed Sharon Fan is. In one time I was out like a diner. I think eating breakfast at a waffle house and there had just been an edgier in concert in Atlanta. I think the night before and next to me was a table full of middle aged women all wearing their matching. Ed Sheeran t shirts from the concert and I was like. Oh that's the Ed Sheeran Fan.

Is I love the word thick relation to Harry houses thighs. That's yeah and I I saw okay. I'm going to be clear that I have tried to do at home. Workouts woman quarantine. But let's not jump the gun because I do maybe ten sit ups and I'm like okay. Time to open another bottle wine but I've been noticing that my soccer is getting like a little bit more soccer let end. I don't WanNa say bigger because that is my worst fear but I found comfort in knowing that her styles has a similar quarantine body as me hum nice to be seen. I didn't see evolution coming in this story but I do like a madman. I'm literally clenching my forehead and staring at the wall as I told story. You've gotta find a window my rotate forty five degrees on the wall. I look at would've odd well to get us out of our spiral we are about to call in New York Nico to talk about times when New York was alive and well and we weren't staring at the walls in isolation so to give us a little perspective and remind us that New York is still as chaotic and incredible as ever. We have Nicholas Heller a New York. Nego calling in today. Thank you for joining us today. Nico where are you calling from in your apartment? I am in my house in bed. Stuy Brooklyn on my room which I've been spending a lot of time. These past couple of weeks got how has how's that going. It's hard I mean I know it. I know it's hard for everybody. I'm not trying to downplay anybody. Anybody else's experienced. I'm literally out every day. Exploring the city in quote unquote talent scouting and meeting New People. So it's really really fucking are to get used to this Ah It's tough. It's tough it's tough for everybody. We all need that human interaction. But if you're familiar with instagram accounts kind of you know. Just meeting New People around the city in and feeding the streets and can't really do that right now. I'm trying to find alternative ways to stay sane and creative way before we get into a letter listeners. Who Don't know you where they can find you online. While I guess most people know me for my instagram which is New York Nico New York and I see oh there I basically I call myself the unofficial talent scout of New York and I guess that me around and I meet interesting. New Yorkers and Get video clips of them and a lot of them are Kind of reoccurring characters on my age and it's just like an account that is meant to celebrate New York and all its people. Yeah I love that New York like you never fall short of interesting chaotic funny people to meet worse and can break down really quickly like why you're doing now especially with this challenge. I've done a few Tra. Jax that that I'm proud of one was a a New York sky. Talent show from home I call it. New York's got Nearest talent from home and basically what it was. I had a people submit videos of them. Doing a talent and talent is very kind of up in the air. I can consider much everything talent but You know so. People are jugglers musicians in there. Were a dancer is in there. Were Comedians So we got a lot of good submissions. And then I narrow that down to I think S- five or six of my favorites and then had my followers vote on who they wanted to win and Joya have some some great brands that follow me that Donated gift cards and in goodies so with prizes in that was yeah. That was awesome. That was a lot of fun You know is a good way to cause other things like what? What am I gonNA do for content on my page? I don't WanNa just like I don't want to post anything This was a good way for me to Kind of get kind of the same content. I would be getting in the street anyway because a lot of these allow the people who submitted are actually Street performers who I who I filmed quite a bit of fun with that. People seem to enjoy it and then the next thing. There's like a week where I was just like at home. Trying to think of what the next thing with the next idea was and then I came up with the idea to do a best New York accent challenge you know. The New York accent has always been something that I've been so fascinated by I'm born and raised in New York and I don't have an accent. My parents don't really have accents. They're both New Yorkers grandparent's their accents. It's always something that I've been fascinated by and I love making lists If YOU'RE A regular follower of my page will know that I love making lists so a few months ago I made a list of top one hundred New York accents From for living people and I was looking at that listeners. Was like you know it would be cool if I did a a contest where people would submit videos of themselves speaking in kind of talking about why they have the best. New York accent. And you know as New Yorkers we all think we're the best so I felt like it was natural for people to have a competitive spirit you know at first. It was very slow kind of had to like Beg Friends of mine with thick New York accents to videos But then it's just like started catching on like wildfire in. There's just been it's been like three days and there's been hundreds and hundreds of submissions and I've kind of been going through all of them and posting favorites to my page and then I think what we're gonNA end up doing. Is I have two guest judges Michael rapaport and Princess Nokia Princess as amazing amazing New York accent so I figured they would be a great co judges sorge. Pick sixteen favorites from the people who submitted. And then we're going to do like a march madness style bracket where we have different rounds. People going up against each other in my followers will basically vote on who their favorites are. I love that Jersey shore also submitted to your. She submitted I saw the challenge through Emilio Ortiz. Yeah like how I I? Oh good yeah I mean. She's got like an incredible New York accent. She was on my original top. One hundred list actually done to interruptions of the list. One was in two thousand nine hundred and twenty twenty and she was on both of them actually didn't know who she was. The first time around by I I put out so okay so I put out. I put out a list in two thousand nineteen and I got so much. Hey because if people are like you didn't do your research like there's so many people that you're missing so I started getting like really great recommendations of people who had never heard of an Amelia. Was One of them and then when I went to our page in just listened to her voice was like Holy Shit like I need to react list. She's the one series yes so she's she's incredible. What are some of the things when you are going to narrow down and pick the winner like what? What are you going to look for in like what makes a great New York accent? Such a good question. I don't even know storytelling routing them. I was like yeah. This is also like what are you saying is obviously so like arbitrary. Everyone's a winner as corneas. That sounds. There's no such thing as the best New York accents is just like our opinions. What we feel You know there are some videos where someone doesn't maybe. This person has like a really really thick classic New York accent. Video is just Kinda like so you know that might play a factor into Or they go in this competition Sarfaraz celebrity. How we feel. I hope that no one gets to offended. Or if they don't get something right padeas their war yet. I'm Yorker's are aggressive after ramming. I'm Kinda worried that people are going to. I WanNa like anybody. I don't want anyone to think that you know. I don't like their voice if you know if it was pretty much everybody whether it be on my story on my page and I did it because I think they have great voices but I can only pick so many favorite New York accent like from a character from a person. Yeah I mean honestly a lot of my characters have some of the Best New York accents like Charlie. The will just submitted a video today. He's just gotten his classic Brooklyn. I don't give a fuck accent. He's great Any peanuts he sells peanuts in in little Italy I think he he has one of the best accents in New York. City is just such a charming fund voice. Every time he speaks I smile. You know so so. Those are some of the quote unquote real people that I think have great accidents. Then you know they're celebrities like Rosie Perez obviously has as great accent. You'RE GONNA pull my list as I don't WanNA leave anybody out. I'M NOT GONNA go through all one hundred accents but were obviously woody Allen. I'm unfortunately we have to start with him controversy aside he does have a undeniably amazing. New York. Accent Cardi B. Obviously Big Body Best Tony Bennett. Lorraine BRACCO Action Bronson Marianne from Brooklyn who actually submitted to the competition. Which I'm stoked on. She's if you don't know she's a she's a regular from the Howard. Stern show really raspy Brooklyn Voice Mel Brooks fifty cents all the Wu Tang clan Andrew dice. Clay Billy Crystal Andrew Cuomo Chorus Tony. Danza removed from the list. Because I Asked for sale. I saw the street Nassar Selfie and he was an asshole. So I'm gonNA remove him nets.

I'M NOT GONNA go through to the rest of us but this list but yeah live eastern Great New York accent. Answer your question there. There's no answer. There was no answer as though it's not just the accent it's the attitude It helps that we're seeing people's faces through video 'cause facial expressions you can you can. This has been so interesting. I can watch video with the sound off and I can hear their accent just because of their facial expressions in their shoes. I offered the site. The gesture is even the jewellery. Like it's it's such a New York thing to see like everyone's gold where it is but they also want to ask you about like you know you've been posting a lot of great like New York Memorabilia on away. I mean I'm saying that like it's been like years of us being inside but it's just nice to see like a reminder of like how great New Yorkers and like what we're like when we come together and what made you start doing that. It's kind of the the whole point of my instagram pre code. Nineteen was just bring New York together and now I feel like it's it's more important than ever to have the sense of community in New York. Pride. You know I feel like you walk outside like I just went to the pharmacy today. Had to pick some stuff up and everyone's just like in Matt's staying away from each other not being friendly. Obviously I mean I'm not but it's just like feel like we're losing our New York Spirit Our New York pride and I feel like this is just like a small way to kind of like remind people that were still out here. Were still new. Yorkers were still covered easing rating of with a video of of the old man with like the rainbow. I think it's like a towel or something around his neck looking so joyful in the ocean which was on Yeah Yeah So. That was such incredible that was on January. First of this year At the polar plunge for those little while Napoleon plunges every New Year's of thousands of people run into the freezing cold water at Coney Island and I've been going for like the past five years It's just the best way to start the new year and I film this one guy I never. I never even met him. I ended up getting his name in emailing him but he never emailed me back. But I just saw this guy and he he was in the water and he's just like so happy like I've never seen such a genuine happiness in my life like you read that you sky and I'm not religious at all but I was just like so moved by this like He. He looks at the sky and I think he mouths like thank you God or something like this dude was just so happy to be alive and I was just so happy happy to capture that moment so felt like this was a good time to re Posta and traps quickly. We just have like three rapid fire questions to ask you just about New York general but doesn't want to kick us off so when the city opens back up where the first three places that go in New York okay. Talking opens up like everything's back to normal when the non essential businesses are all functioning again whenever that will be okay so the first thing I'm GonNa do is go to Washington Square Park because Washington Square Park is my happy place. I'm they're pretty much every day. It's where all my friends hang out and I'm just GONNA do do my my walk. I have kind of like a a route Whatever I'm not doing anything and I just WANNA lake walk around the city. I have my route. Generally it actually starts in Chinatown in that. I make my way towards washes bark. Yeah do that make all the stops stop by my small businesses. Make sure that they're doing all right. you know. That's one thing that that concerns me you know. There's there's so much that concerns me about what's what's happening right now in in you know. Obviously there's there's a lot that's GONNA come from the aftermath of cove nineteen and one thing that I'm particularly concerned about the small businesses. I've been an advocate for small businesses for years I feel like that's what makes New York New York a lot. A lot of my favorites vol Businesses are suffering right now You know they literally can't do business. They're not making any money on Iran so the first thing that I wanNA do when this is all over. This is make sure that they're okay. Make sure they can stay open. I'm talking to some people right now about you know what what we can do to help them in the aftermath. So I guess that's Tanta Question. That's the first thing I'M GONNA do is. I'm GonNa make sure that the small businesses are chilling. And what is the strangest interacting? You've ever had New York. The Strength Omega can answer that question like every day. Something new honestly. I'm so desensitized at this point I've seen like not To the mid West but like someone from middle enough where they would probably think that like my least crazy story is the most insane shit ever but when you live in New York and you walk around as much as you see literally everything in the point. I literally forgotten. I have my might go to like crazy New York stories but I am also trying to keep it relatively a PG thirteen For this podcast and I don't tell you any of my insane stories that involve X. rated mature growth by the afternoon. So who are some of your favorite New Yorkers you've featured I'm a particular fan of the Green Lady. I don't know what her name is but the one who dresses in all green. I met her once on the street in Curl Gardens and Jeez the sweetest person ever. That's well that you can call a green lady she goes. Oh God this is her real name but She's the sweetest. I could have easily been a really creepy a story because I kind of I kind of stalked soccer. I virtually Tried to hang out with her 'cause I had met her like five years ago and took a photo and I've been like trying to not trying but I was hoping to run into her again but I didn't then one day I re posted that photo that I had taken a for years ago. It was like if anyone can put me in touch with Green Lady. I'd be forever grateful because I love her and I want to talk to her and she. She wouldn't respond to my DM's because she's not very tech savvy so like people were trying to help you know. Get me in touch with her. But it wasn't working out and then a week later a week after I posted that photo. I just randomly saw her on the street and I got the whole interaction on video. It was like right before Christmas so it was like the best Christmas gift I could have ever asked for. Long story short we started hanging out. Were really good friends. Now I go to her pre pre code. Obviously I would go to her house and eat lunch. And she's just she's awesome. She's the sweetest most one of the most genuine people. I'm so jealous. Secret to hang out with her.

Today's episode sowed the New York ripper and the murder of Kerry Brown also known as Shakespeare on April Twenty third eighteen ninety one fifty seven year old prostitute Kerry Brown hadn't eaten for three days Kerry Brown had several. Aliases not uncommon for her profession. But her friends called her old Shakespeare Jake Speer in her youth carey had been an actress and with enough drinks and her she had a habit of quoting the bard in her thick conglo accent Kerry Brown was an alcoholic working on the east side of New York City. Just trying to make enough money money for a drink and a place to sleep for the night when she didn't earn enough for both she chose the drink and often found her her bed behind bars for drunk and disorderly. On the afternoon of April twenty third Kerry told her friend Alice a fellow prostitute that it had been days since her last meal. Alice spot carry a sandwich and that night. The two friends had dinner at a Christian mission when they finished their meal. Allison Kerry parted ways and went to work at around around eight thirty PM. Alice spotted Kerry with John that she knew as Frenchy and later with another man Isaac passenger singer who they also called Frenchie finally between ten thirty and eleven PM Kerry Brown escorted at her last customer for the night to the East River Hotel on water street particularly disreputable establishment known to locals as the House of all drinks carrying with them a Pale Ale Kerry and her John Checked in to room thirty one registered as seen Nick and wife. The next morning the night clerk noticed that the key to room thirty one and had not been returned he went upstairs and knocked but there was no answer. He tried the handle but the door was locked taking out his master keys he opened the door. They're on the bed was the disemboweled body of Kerry Brown. She was covered in stab wounds naked from the armpits down and her clothing was wrapped wrapped around her head as if the killer didn't want to see her face as he worked an ex or a cross was carved on her left after buttock and next to her body. The blood soaked bed lay the murder weapon. A sharpened would handled table knife. The clerk quickly contacted police at Oak Street Station and soon detectives and reporters descended on the squalid hotel. Mary Mentor the Housekeeper. In the East River Hotel recalled seeing Kerry come in with her last customer of the night she described abdomen as a foreigner who was about thirty two years old around five feet eight inches in height of slim build and with a long sharp nose and a heavy mustache of a light color.

Mentors description come into the Glenmore hotel shortly after two. AM The man's hands and clothes were smeared with blood and in a thick German accent. The man asked for a room but he had no money so Mr Kelly turned him away. News of the brutal murder spread quickly and old Shakespeare was soon front. Page news along with another familiar name by the next morning. April who'll twenty fifth eighteen ninety one. The New York Herald wrote Ghastly portrayed by Jack The ripper murder and mutilation and local white chapel almost almost identical with the terrible work of the mysterious London. Fiend strangled I then cut to pieces the New York Times headline aligned. Read choked then mutilated a murder like one of Jack The ripper. Deeds The New York commercial advertiser vote. She was one of the same class and was slain in the same manner. As the White Chapel victims the unfortunate creature was strangled strangled and disemboweled. The strong probability that London's fiend in Human Form Jack. The ripper has transferred his field of operations from White Chapel to the slums of New York has sent a thrill of horror throughout the metropolis. The slaughter of the woman men carry Braun or Shakespeare as she was familiarly known in a squalid room on the fourth floor of the East River House a disreputable dive on the corner of water and Catherine streets in many particulars closely resembles the work of the White Chapel feed and the police are strongly of the opinion that he is really in New New York. The main difference which this crime presents from the London butcheries lies in the fact that the New York victim was strangled whereas the murderers work in London London was invariably begun by cutting the throat. The woman had been strangled to death. Then had followed the mutilation which connected the crime with Jack The ripper handcraft beginning near the end of the spine. The murderer had cut deeply frontward to a point on the lower part of the abdomen. And then back again to where he started what he had cut away had disappeared. He must have taken it with him. There was no sign of it in a room. disembowelling had followed this awful surgery. This completed. The murderer had had left his mark on the body on the back of the left hip in jagged lines. More than a foot long. He had scored over cross on the door. The murderer had made his mark again. The boards which formed the wall bore such across as he had cut on the body scratched in with the point of a knife. The idea that Jack The ripper or even an imitator might be loose in New York City transformed the murder of a prostitute which would have otherwise received little attention into a press sensation soon. Every newspaper was connecting Kerry Brown's murder in New York to London's ripper and citizens were beginning to panic this posed a challenge to NYPD chief. Inspector Thomas Byron's who had publicly criticized sized Scotland Yard for its failure to capture Jack The ripper and London. The chief inspector remarked that the London police had sent him a photograph off of one of the rippers letters. The signature boldly scrawled across the page with. Its return address from help. According according to The New York Times Inspector Byron said quote it would be impossible for crimes. Such as Jack The ripper committed in London to occur in New York and the murderer not be found barnes boasted. The Jack The ripper had been in New York City. He would have been caught within thirty six hours. And after the ripper like murderer of old shakespeare the newspapers were quick to remind him of it. Inspector Byron's had been a pivotal figure in the development of the New York Police Department. He led the transition of policemen policemen from being little more than gangs with badges and sticks to organized crime investigators the 2013 television documentary entry secrets of New York credited. Thomas Byron's as the man who invented America's modern detective bureau but Thomas Barnes had questionable methods the term third degree was coined due to barnes long and brutal interrogations suspected criminals that amounted to extracting confessions through physical and psychological torture in response to the pressure from the press. Inspector Byron's ordered the police to flood the area and within days had rounded up a few suspects a prostitute who had been drinking with Carrie Brown the night before the murder and the East River hotel housekeeper. Mary Mentor were taken into custody for for questioning and held for their own protection against killer returning to silence any witnesses. Both women told police about seeing Kerry Brown with a man they knew as Frenchie with little else to go on. Police began rounding up suspects with the nickname but Frenchy was a common moniker in the east side. So police in the press organize. It's the suspects by number Frenchie number one French number two. But when the Frenchies were shown to the witnesses none were recognized as the man. Last seen with Kerry Brown Inspector Byron's became frustrated with his eye. Witnesses information and and failure to identify one of his suspects complaining that quote the people depended upon to give it. Were a drunken lot without enough intelligence to remember how the man looked. In the end inspector Byron's released all of the FRENCHIES except one Amir. Ben Ali a french-speaking Julian who had been staying in room thirty three of the East River Hotel across across the hall from Kerry Brown Room. Thirty one police claimed that there was blood leading to his door on the door frame and on the doorknob both on the outside and on the inside though none of the reporters who had been on the scene saw this this the police also claimed that this Frenchie had been found with blood on his socks and under his fingernails. The explanation the police gave for why the eye. Witnesses failed to recognize Amir Ben Ali and the fact that he didn't match the John's description was that he was not the John at all these theorized that after the John left room thirty one Amir Ben. Ali had crept upped across the hull robbed and murdered Kerry Brown then returned to his room just five days. After the murder chief-inspector Barnes confidently announced that Amir Ben Ali Aka Frenchie was the killer Amir Ben Ali was arraigned on April thirtieth and held in the tombs until his trial opened on June twenty fourth eighteen eighteen ninety one the court appointed Abraham Levy as a mere Ben Ali's council as. He could not afford an attorney and found interpreter from Algeria. So that French who spoke little English could at least appear to participate his own defense district attorney Delancey nickel and Chief Assistant Francis Willman prosecuted inspector your Byron's and four officers testified character. Witnesses from the area testified for the prosecution that Amir Ben Lee Eh led a debauched life and frequented the Sordid Hotel. The prosecution called three medical experts. Who testified that an analysis of Ben Ali's fingernail scrapings his socks and of the bloodstains in room thirty one room thirty three and and the hallway showed quote intestinal contents of food elements all in the same degree of digestion? Exactly the identity suggesting that their blood analysis showed that all of the bloodstains resulted from blood flowing from the abdominal injuries. He's Kerry Brown on cross examination. The experts were not able to state with certainty that the blood was even human. The defense argued that the blood evidence was circumstantial at best but Frenchy proved a terrible witness in his own defense on the stand. Ben Ali sometimes seem to understand English at other times. He claimed and not to understand questions even after they had been translated into his native dialect. Making it easy for the prosecution to get Frenchie. She to contradict himself on cross examination. A New York Times Article Road quote at times. The man was dramatic at other times. Tears poured down his cheeks and at all times his gestures were interesting. Sometimes ludicrous. He frequently swore before Allah. Aw that he was innocent but Frenchy was believed. The jury left to deliberate on July third eighteen. Eighteen ninety one at one point. During the two hour deliberation the jury was pulled at eleven in favor of first degree murder and just one on hold out for second degree murder with jurors anxious to be done by the fourth of July the agreed to return a unanimous verdict of guilty of second degree murder and on July tenth eighteen ninety one Amir Bonelli was sentenced to life imprisonment cement in sing-sing later one juryman commented that he believed that the jury had been packed in that the Ben Ali verdict had not been fair after he was convicted. The press dropped their theory that carry Braun had been murdered by Jack The ripper and instead focused their efforts on freeing the man that they believed had been falsely convicted of murder. Word on the street was that Frenchie had been framed. Some believed that the murderer was a blonde sailor who sailed for the Far East others. I still believed that old Shakespeare really had been murdered by Jack The ripper but no one believed that Amir Ben Ali could possibly have been the famous white chapel chapel killer. Francis Coils also known as karate now was murdered by the river in February if eighteen ninety one just two months before Kerry Brown and her John Checked into room. Thirty one travel time from London to New York by steamer took roughly one week. Many believed the Jack The ripper had seen inspector Byron's comments in the papers and accepted accepted his challenge in that. The police had framed. Amir Ben only chose to save Byron's reputation when his appeals failed Amir Ben Ali became depressed and in eighteen ninety three he was moved from sing-sing to the New York State Asylum for insane criminals at Matiwane journalist Jacob Rees continued. He knew to champion Bente lease innocence. Even after Ben Elise own lawyers had given up Frenchie is crazy. They told the journalist first and has better off where he is than liberty but Jacob Rees refused to give up as a police reporter for the New York Sun at the time of the murder reese had been among the first to arrive on the scene and he knew firsthand that there had been no trail of blood as us. Past chief-inspector Thomas Barnes found it increasingly difficult to fight reformers and his links to the corruption of Tammany Hall and in Eighteen Ninety five the new New York Police Commissioner Future President Theodore Roosevelt forced Thomas. Byron's to resign. Finally in nineteen to the work of several journalists lists including Jacob Rees and Charles Edward Russell finally convinced the governor that the blood evidence and the Kerry Brown case had been either accidentally early or deliberately tampered with and that the state had convicted an innocent man nearly eleven years after the murder governor. Benjamin B Odell received a pardon application for Amir Ben Ali based on new evidence a Danish man who matched the description of the John Given by both the hotel housekeeper. Mary Mentor and Mr Kelly had worked for several several weeks in the spring of eighteen. Ninety one at Cranford New Jersey about fifteen miles from the city he had been absent from Cranford on the night of the murder. On April twenty third eighteen ninety one and disappeared entirely several days later among the objects left behind his room were a bloody shirt and a brass key bearing tag with the number thirty one matching the keys used at the East River Hotel. Police had never provided an explanation for the missing key nor have they ever attempted to find the John that carry Braun was last seen with reporter Jacob Rees submitted a witness Abba David based on his direct observation at the East River Hotel. He stated that he had not seen blood on the door of either thirty three Over thirty one or in the hallway. The governor was convinced on April Sixteenth Nineteen Nineteen ninety-two. After being imprisoned for ten years nine months and ten days Amir Bonelli also known as Frenchy was declared innocent and on April twenty second nineteen o two. He was released. He left the United States and returned to his native Algeria. Shortly afterwards the murder of Jerry Brown was never solved. This has been murder minute for true crime anytime.

If i can walk somewhere i'm gonna walk otherwise i'll take guber pool because i'm usually like with a group of people and then we split it so it's not you know whether it's nice yeah. Citi bike is great. You just have to carry your own helmet with you. It's good the exercise. It's real easy to get around. You're going to be people in cars like if you're racing someone an taking an uber slash out for people opening doors uber app like warns you of that right now because they just come out of nowhere sometimes no well. That's what we think about the doors to but the subway i mean is generally a convenient fast. Cheap option not always fast sometimes especially. If you're going long distances yeah no it's peak peak-time you can get anywhere you need to go with a subway pretty much and it's really easy with google maps and apple maps totally fully integrated yeah putting your origin destination and says you can take trainer this yeah this train and it's coming at this time and sometimes it does come when it says it's usually pretty accurate because google will map the delays elite too so it'll tell you it's four minutes delayed or whatever you have to pay attention to the exact letter because so many different trains run the same line especially in manhattan that you have to make sure that you're getting adding on the right number or letter depending on where you wanna go yeah definitely one thing i recommend if you are walking around. The city is just look up. You know don't just look straight out. Look at at the buildings because architecture is really really cool. I feel like i noticed something new every single day and i walk the exact same pack. No two buildings are identical here. Even some of the newer buildings there are some ugly new buildings. I have to say giants our that one by central park. I kind of liked that one. It's an eyesore i yeah i don't understand how it hasn't just blown over because the way it was engineered those spaces in the middle for the wind pass through. I think that's why i like the shorter buildings for the most part. I do like one world trade center. Every neighborhood has kind of like a different feel to feel it when you're walking through tale know that like the east village feels very different that operate side especially lower manhattan yeah the art deco at the chrysler building and is incredible. That's i think that's my favorite building in the city where we need take a quick break and then when we come back we're gonna talk about flight and hotel options for your trip to new york city. We are back from the break and i always get asked by my friends and friends of friends that are coming to new york. Where should i stay and i can give some recommendations when it comes to neighborhoods but nick as our resident reviews editor knows the city <hes> quite a bit better than most i would say when it comes to hotels and aware of the hotel seen a little bit. Yes yes if you wanna have like really classic new york. Stay you're staying town. They're a bunch of really good options kind of the old the old guard of new york hotels on the free side. There's a luxury collection. Property called the chat wall which is a really beautiful hotel but it's a category eight so you have to be prepared to pay up whether in points or cash and there's also the carlisle which is a rosewood hotels and not appoint so tell but if you have f- h._r. Our with your amex platinum card yeah. I don't know what the hundred dollars goes towards their but if it's food and beverage companies that are very famous bar new york city yeah but the restaurants are you good to you. I've been to the a restaurant there a few times yeah. That's a really really cool spot and then kind of more towards central park. There's the ritz carlton in central park which was just renovated a really nice property with if you even get an upgrade to a view it's unparalleled in the next two that is the j w marriott essex house which is an iconic tower has essex house written in red red neon very clearly see it from yeah sheep's meadow yup totally then we have the london which the hilton property in the same area kind of central the park south and that's going to conrad later this year i think but it's an all suite hotel thank. You don't have to be worried if i'm gonna upgrade or now right. Yes no no worries there there and of course before moving farther south have to talk about the plaza. Which is the the most iconic hotel new york. Probably i would say yeah go. Are there any eaten have the <hes> the high tea yeah that's right yeah and before we go in further south the park hyatt also on central park as a gorgeous hotel. They've got a really cool pool right really nice pool yeah. You're not gonna have great central park views because it's on the lower part of the building but the hotel itself is gorgeous and a really great value highpoints as rooms are over a thousand bucks a night all the time kind of moving further down the haida herald square while not the best area of town i would say but it has a really cool rooftop with great views of the empire state building and again. It's really easy to use high points. So that's a great option. The new moxie square yeah it does yeah someone reasonably grows. You can sometimes find rooms reflect. Ninety nine bucks an incredible hours magic hours very the carousel. It's like an adult playground. I think nah totally kid friendly and there's a new moxy in chelsea z. To which below has he's really cool. Looking restaurants are kind of open to the whole street indoor outdoor so for the summer probably really good spot and then if we get a little bit further down i mean you mentioned the gramercy park hotel in our backyard. Yeah that's right. We can see it from our fire escape our favorite housing office yeah. That's a great spot. I think it was designed by ian. Schrager is one of his hotels from back in the day but yeah it's also marriott property and even if you're not staying there if you're in the neighborhood just definitely go have have a drink have a drink walk into the lobby really cool bar and they have that amazing lebow sent which is designed for in the lobby and the rooms and you can actually buy but it's it's a really it's amazing yeah talion restaurant. That's also right by right automatic. Square park is the new york edition which is a really nice hotel and has a great bar to hang out at and have drinks after work or whatever but again a really nice place to say and use your marielle points as we go further down town. We have probably the best hotel down or one of the best hotels downtown. The beekman probably my all time favorite hotel just just to go in. It's like as a local the bar the bars awesome atriums cool and if you if you're going in the bar you're technically not supposed to but you can take the elevator up to the top top of the atrium and just get a shot. I did that exact thing also my instagram very cool alison l. but yeah elsewhere downtown the town. There's an aloft down there on wall street which is actually nice. When i lived on wall street my parents would always say the on does it was like right next door. I lived in actually really nice hotel quiet uh-huh millenium hilton we have overlooking the world trade center which has an amazing location a little tired but it's ok okay very tired exhausted and then there's another conrad over in battery park city which is a really cool hotel and there's a movie theater in there. It's a real across from like brookefield place which has a lot of amazing restaurants and super high end shopping a really good base to explore the city from there because you're also close to all a lot of subways subways and all that kind of stuff. I know i mean we we could talk about new york for hours and hours and hours and hours but we're almost out of time but i wanna give sam a chance to touch on a few of the of her favorite restaurants because sam is our resident foodie here and really knows restaurant. I just like food and i came with a list and i talk about this for like. Why don't we know okay may talk funny. Oh good well. I pretty much the pressures. There's on it. Just depends on like what you want though like there's just so many in there so many different kinds of cuisine and food that like and like what occasion you know like do you want to just like have like food after work one night or do you wanna go celebrate for someone. I wanna i'm coming. I'm coming to new york for the first time okay. I want a new york dinner. You want a new york dinner. Yeah okay if you want to be one of the budget end joe's pizza hands down the best life there's one on fourteenth and third and then there's one in the west village as well on fulton in the finance the other day guede. I i've been there like five times. It is just like the perfect perfect quintessential new york slice. My other favorite is print street pizza which is just like heaven on a paper plea actually interestingly enough one of the chefs from <hes> entry pizza just opened a shop called me to new york pizza on the upper west side. There's a little bit of pizza drama but they have those like pepperoni cops and it it's so good and then if you you want something on the more expensive n. like you really wanna like you know have a good meal carbone hands on one of the best meals in my life. Rubio says also like amazing. These are two polices that you gotta be like on top of reservations especially for carbon like it is really hard to get one so carbon is in greenwich village and then rubio says more in like the no-ho area on mulberry street so great story about rubio so really quick is <hes> my friends. Were there a few years ago. It was like the data february. Were trying to track down our uber. Obviously it's like negative agrees or something and this huge black car which we thought was ours because we ordered like an excel stops in front of the restaurant. This woman gets out and then this guy gets gets out and i'm like i know this guy like who is. He can't picture who he is. Known like thinking like is he friends with my grandpa. He was older and then my my friend says hi and the second she said hi. I'm like can i curse on shit. That's paul mccartney and so we like struck truck up a conversation with paul mccartney apparently paul mccartney the taddei pizza paul mccartney apparently goes to ruby rosa all the time so that's when you know <hes> <hes> when you know you know <hes> some of my other favorites are emily which is in the west village lilia and missy which are missy robbins restaurants. They're both in williamsburg. Liam's berg new york reservations as before are like a whole different ballgame like lilia. You have to be on razzie a month in advance at midnight or you will not get the reservation. Missy is a little bit more laid back. It's the newer of the two and reservations are a little bit easier to come by. You still have to be pretty on top of your game. Plan ahead like neither there are places that you can kind of book day or two in advance and hope for the best if you then again put that notify thing on on razzie <hes> j._j. Mellon also on real eight so so much the last time i was there because it's just so good and you need. You need to get the burger. I went oh no that oh aw look which was nice but it is also like that's not everyone burger's. What is why did you do right. I don't i don't remember if this was on the menu or not but but they're grilled cheese was unreal. We also got beacon grilled cheese which was doubly unreal do that and don't forget the cottage rise. All these places are like some incredible. It's all kind of heavier foods yeah. Are there any like sushi spots that you love so i like moya which is definitely more of like a local place. It's it's not something that like you'll see unlike the touristy sites also sugar fish even though it is from l._a. But the original one in new york at least it's two blocks away from our office and they just just open another one in soho so good <hes> causing the same food group they have hand rolls and the sushi is like super fresh quality one more. I would say sells but it's not just a beagle place like it's a bagel restaurant like it's not like essa bagel which in my opinion is completely and totally over related. It's a bagel. Does it is the spot. Don't waste your time at esa bagel. Don't wait online for a half hour. There bagels are good but they're spreads are like mediocre at best clinton street baking. I've been is 'cause. I don't wanna wait in line for three hours. I get i get i do i do. I have you know few false but getting thank you can pass the time waiting to get into your fantastic.

Couples Under Lockdown: New York, New York
"It's such a middle finger and my face in the middle of this thing that's happening all over the globe. None of the couples. You are about to hear our ongoing clients. Avesta parole for the purposes of maintaining their confidentiality names and some identifiable characteristics have been removed but their voices and their stories are real. Their relationship is rapidly unraveling. They've been together for twenty five years in a highly reactive volatile relationship and they're in the midst of divorce. I'm scared to death of my wife. She scares me when she's upset. She's like busy okay. Daily in New York City. They have been warranting together for the past two weeks due to couvert nineteen. He would like to be anywhere but with his wife at this moment. Living with someone who's has so much contempt for me and feels that I am trying to control you by asking you to isolate with your family. Which is what the governor is asking us to do. But he has made a choice out of duty and obligation to be with his family but it certainly is not what he wants and he reminds her that constantly like two weeks ago. I had to get pediatrician. Child therapist everybody to explain to him. Why seeing his girlfriend during Cova did was not appropriate or safe for the girls for her his coldness. He's business light responses triggering deep wounded nece around being ignored the efficient and professional language that he uses to talk about the dissolution of twenty five year relationship. It is so deeply painful to me that to me on this way which then leads him to talk. About how many years? He felt rejected by her because of her sexual refusing and the ruts that they lived in for so many years since the birth of their children seven years ago. My wife has told me that we have no chemistry sexual that she enjoys being with her other lovers more than me to me. This isn't like a last ditch effort. It's just somebody that we both respect to help us. It almost as we started twenty one years ago it got kicked off with a vows column in The New York Times and it feels very fitting for it to end with with you. I you good partners to exchange ideas. I think we're really good parents and really good at. I think looking at a different things. You have to navigate as parents and sensibilities and taking account feelings. You know all those things. I think we're very good at at doing that together. For sure that's a strength. Yeah and it's a string that is particularly Handy at this moment important at this moment think the other thing that we are good at that has gotten very lost and under. I wouldn't say appreciate it because I can't speak for him but we just resonate together while we don't connect on skiing or racecar driving or faith in God we would resonate almost like the way when two little kids me and they just like Bob and I feel like that's how we've always been And that you know in some ways the source of my suffering that connection which has been a part of life for Twenty Five years a myth bat and ewing situation. Where one of you as a ticket Understood you're saying that at first I am seen very much in and he is your what. I'm very much in as you know. You know a a partner in in parenting our daughters and it's not like a great word. It's it's it's something more than a friend I just don't know what else what the word is But I'm not in as a romantic couple. That is something that has not been there for offer very long time and the choices look you know there are other things that are amazing about our relationship but there are there are things that just aren't there and they're not going to be there and the decision is either well. That's our lot in life. Luscious live that way because we don't want to create any difficulties in at home and disrupt our lives and our children's lives or less. Just say that we both deserve something better and something different and we can hope on what. I'd love to get out of this Lech promote nourish and salvage the the things that work really well for us them an interesting moment because while she has accepted that this is the end of the marriage. She's still very much wants to emphasize the connection that exists the embers that are still flickering between them whereas he seems to imply that if knowledged any warmth any connection that still exists between them beyond their role as parents. It's as if he's resolution would just too rapidly deserve so he retains a very calm cold detached or was associated way about him which hurts her greatly. Have you sought to bring back some of the things that relationship loss of his being bringing romance back being a part of your dream for the relationship or you're basically segregated it and outsource it and decided to keep compartmentalized relationships? Well Th? This is a topic that we talked about in massive length for well over a decade Meaning that the problem has been. Oh It's been there for a very long time so you know it's certainly something that's been looked at and I'm resolute that I'm not interested in continuing to try and spark something that is not ignited. First of I want to say that when he speaks about us in those terms it feels very professional and businesslike. And that's what I mean by the cutting off of connection from the start. She wants me to know that she experienced sexual trauma in her childhood and that she has spent years in therapy working on these experiences and the connection of her trauma with her sexuality and her sexual behaviors in their marriage. She also wants me to know that he too has experienced the same kind of sexual trauma which I'm not even sure he wants me to know and which he certainly has not given her the permission to speak about. Because it's history okay. Fine and yeah. I don't know how much she wants me to know about this. Understand him five minutes ago. Fine I will say that. My hope was in his support group that this is. What often happens indecision? He's at one person spy. Graffiti becomes another person's betrayal. He has no interest in going and digging into his history at this point. He's had his years of therapies when what he came back to her with is. I want an open marriage. You know until when. He told me that he wanted to have an open marriage. I went along with it and and I saw okay. Well maybe this is something he needs. It's part of his process to process but the story just kept changing and to now he's resolute said it's over. You know that first night the conversation was like you're the best wife you're the best mother we can make this work. You can be with someone who you're attracted to sexually I can be with someone I'm attracted to. Maybe this thing will reignite with us with one of the core pieces of what you just said to me. Is that when you think about the end of your relationship as far as spouses as partners as lovers you feel sad about it and heartbroken and you don't feel like he's morning anything well he hasn't relationship and yeah so I feel like you know that. Is that the peace when you say cold. It's it's that he's losing anything you think you're the all new. So it's like bye-bye piece good luck and I understand because he is in a highly sexual relationship and so I understand why I remember being in those relationships when I was cheating on him. I mean I know the the sort of allure in the drug and the thing that sex does I get it. I'm just standing here saying. We have been entangled for twenty five years of like wheel connection and building and toiling. And I I don't mean to paint myself as a martyr but maybe because of my sort of spiritual For the past netted Dorsey could leave for. It's not that I never thought he could leave. We have a big neon in our house. That says I promise to love you. Which is what he bought me after he cheated on me with girlfriends for higher ten years ago and I believed I promise to love you and as a result for the past ten years as part of my spiritual path is part of my personal work rather than pointing the finger at him. I've been pointing the finger at myself. Deepening a deepening and deepening. My practice might wish for myself has been to soften. I am a killer. That helped me tremendously in business. It serves me less well relationship. And not so you know my wish to the universe has been to soften to be more vulnerable than. I'm safe now. I'm not endanger every day. The way that I was as a child. And and so yes. Listen this divorce. If anything will soften meet it will be this and what my wish has always been for. The two of us is to be trees next to each other and not entangled in choking each other but next to each other. It's very interesting. Moments rights physically sitting very closely together more than one would usually detected in my office sharing headphones into one computer. On Your bed you hearing your wife talk and I'm trying to watch the way you breathe that I can only see your upper body and so I don't even know how it's getting more and more shallow and I don't know if she's reaching you or if all you want is for her to just stop or if it feels like you know your head is on the watering or you hear some noise or if you so far gone that it's like lab lab lab now you know she's trying very hard but I'm not sure it's person that sitting next to her still any resonance there. I don't know where you are Well you know I I. I've a very different narrative esther I what you experience. When she talks right now I know what she's going to and I I feel going through and I I feel empathy for her feelings however I I'm waiting patiently to tell my story significantly different so I've been ask you hold on a minute. I promise you I have no doubt that your stories are such that I would wonder needs to happen in the same room occur. Baron okay I get it. I need to understand is when she talks when she reaches out when she steamed hopes when she's still pleads where does he land in you if to me it depends on where she's at you know like if this was maybe yesterday or or you know recently went through when she's very angry she's GonNa say something very different you know? Then she's saying right now And I think overall the relationship needs to move on. Okay and we can. We can talk for hours about our history and our feelings and and and all those things which are extremely important and we've done that for decades. I mean I'm happy to go back through all that right but I think what's more productive is if we can talk about how we can move on and be great parents and respectful to each other so you know we can be happy in in the new sort of wavering. You're going to be. I mean if you want I can. I can tell you why I think our physical relationship isn't there. I can talk about what happened ten years ago when I was Outside the marriage I can talk about why we started one place of February first with me saying we should stay married and then now we're getting divorced at the end of all of that. The bottom line is I care deeply about her and because of that I know that the most efficient use of our time is to talk about how we can work with the fact that she cares a lot about me. I care a lot about her. We both a lot about our kids and I think part of the problem of any sort of moving forward and I want to be very clear. You know I'm not here because I'm trying to save my marriage I'm surrendered. To what is you know But the efficient and professional language that he uses to talk about the dissolution of a twenty five year relationship is part of the sort of anger that he talked about that yesterday and the day or the day before today. That was really angry. Curse to me that while she's highlighted the core business like an emotional language of her husband she on the other end is invested in a much more spiritual language where she's talking about surrendering to his decision to divorce. And I'm wondering if another verb would be more apt than surrender the feeling of rejection that she's feeling or anger or hurt that he has basically dismissed her for a much younger woman with whom he's experiencing a very powerful sexual connection that is making him feel loved desired mascot intimate powerful attractions and many many things that he's been longing for his marriage for a long time nevertheless she's been replaced and I don't know if surrender is the that accompanies the feeling of being replaced.

Podcasts detachable science the s you know he was obviously in a relationship and wants to break up and I get it but a month before that he was begging me to go on a trip. Just the two of us you know so this we'll turn like. I'm just trying to keep my head on my neck and I can't believe the coldness with which my partner is talking to me. And he wants us to be these really close co parents but do we know each other. Has Someone giving you a lobotomy? Where are you? This is very important? Here here's why I might come across that way. I'm scared to death of my wife. She scares me when she's upset. She sees to me like a Disney going. Okay and I know at anytime she will weaponize anything. I've ever said to her about my life about my feelings about my family and she's been physically abusive she rages and for self survival. I am leveraging by sort of way I can look at things logically and just be as you know because I don't feel safe emotionally in this relationship and that's why I come across the way I come across his. I'm leveraging Djing those faculties to help me navigate this and this is also though how you relate to your family. I mean the only I. I'm just saying that I'm not the only person you feel. Must feel unsafe about because you speak this way to your family as well with whom you've been estranged and completely cut off and this is about my family. We have a great relationship with our family leaper. He going to convince me in two minutes that while you talk about how much you care about each other you also know to trash each other gloriously. And in that department you probably are both wearing same size gloves. So I'm watching. I'm listening to how much you care. And how much you want things to remain as her bonus as possible as a family but it doesn't take thirty seconds closer WANNA view to basically shame the other one and bring up things about each other that you haven't really asked permission to share or you know feed that you've been exposed and then instead of saying leave that to me that's my story then you come back in a moment later and you just say you want me to show you how I can trash. Let me show you my trash and each of you which we do garbage cans you know and that that is really that that that is going to be really helpful and I understand that you can say I'm going to try to de escalate as much as possible and not react not react when she's vicious and not react when she's kinder and vulnerable. I'm just GONNA try to become as robotic guests can be so that I maintain some sense of composure and thorough. I know you may feel that you more this marriage a long time ago. You've done you grieving. You've you Sneddon us what I told her. And then you come to her knowledge. She seems all surprised and she says you know. Where are your feelings about this? Don't you like you're losing this incredible on that we have and then you say I care deeply about her and the next minute you're telling me in a completely contradictory stuff but if you want to find some way to collaborate together and to be defense that you are to your kids you're GonNa have to resist your vicious temptations. I do feel that. He hates me that when he says I I love her and the things that he says. I don't actually think that's true. I think he says that because he wants to be a cordial person. What we'd be better do is ask a question I've asked him. I know meaning that when you like you just do it now. Yeah Your Masters A- talking for each other and at implying that you know exactly what the other person fees and then putting it down so I think it's probably a mixture of another stinks. You have moments when you hit each other's guts and moments when you feel like you know there's this intense connection sting at moments when you love. Would you daughters and you think how could that ever end and moments when you dig a constant another minute of this and its rapid succession of all of it and on top of it you? I've your new erotic longings parked somewhere else so being probably could find to your home at this moment must not be an easy thing either when when you spitted by someone and you have to be confined with your ex or your soon to be ex. It's kind of an interesting constellation. I live with one. I dream about the other and then when you can't be about the other and you frustrated about that you week of this but I feel like I always own. I know what where I know what I do wrong. I know I'm not an any denial what I do and I am apologetic immediately. I catch myself. I'm not saying I'm perfect. I'm a highly imperfect person and he holds grudges. You hold grudges. I feel like she she. She tortures me. And I just my sort of reclamation of I WANNA take my body back one or have A healthy physical relationship with a woman wasn't a function of any recent therapy. You know this this is a this is something that's been building for years. Where did you lose your buddy soon? I think there are also in my career of Beta in my personal relationship and I've accepted a role that out there. My wife for this brand to the table just the way she does you know we. We set ourselves up the different roles then. This role was one. That was very disempowering for me. And I think a symptom of that is certainly Lack of physical connection. My wife has told me that we have no chemistry sexually that she enjoys being with her. Other lovers More than me that. She's not comfortable having sex with me but those things were deeply painful because I never had a problem sexually. Certainly you know we met after college but certainly in college and prior and now I think it was just the the chemistry between us that we're both Responsible for so it wasn't like recent thing that just happens. You know in some recent therapy that I had you know. She's been telling me this for years. I never wanted to believe I now believe her way. That people D- ratty size each other and the way that people seep the six out of the relationship is beyond just matches of chemistry. You know it's not just about sex. It's about being related. A certain way of course coupes by my partner and again. The sexes just symptom of state functions. That is either there or not and I. My wife deserves that to When I talked about this to her in early February it was. I thought that right away. She would have some sort of relationship because she hasn't. I mean allegedly happened at any physical relationship in many many years. What made you move from the suggestion of being a consensual non monogamous to opting for divorce. Well I started to You know to act on what I what I talked about and be romantic with with with others and it was anytime was very there was a lot of craziness and rage and violence and it was very painful for my wife And it was to the point. Where is impacting our our kids and it was just not. It's not that's not gonNa work and she was not interested in seeing. He bought herself so it was. It was very inequitable. I would be going out and I come home and it will be a battle on the next day. She'd be raging the whole day and heart of this sort of reclamation is. I'm not going to be treated that way you know like I'm not going to live a life where I'm being raised on and being called all sorts of things and Was Actually my wife suggestion that we should. We should divorce and I agree. Have you spoken with you do tours? We have the oldest one. Well all daughters know that you know. I'm living in a different bedroom. Couples Change People. You know parents don't and we've been really sort of going through that But the the little ones don't know that we're specifically getting a divorce. Only the old one does they will know once we you know there's also this coveted situation and that's you know right. Now is like a hot topic with. He and I like two weeks ago. I had to get a pediatrician. Child therapist. Everybody to explain to him. Why seeing his girlfriend during Cova did was not appropriate or safe for the girls. And he's now okay he said okay. I'll give it two weeks. And now despite the fact that in central park there are tense of people who are ill and dying. He's picking it up again and and I. I just feel desperate. I feel worried about my children. I feel that I worry also about my husband that his need for physical intimacy is clouding his judgment and I am being villain is used in order to give him an excuse. I'm being very. I'm not going to go tit for tat with the things that he said like hauling me violent you know one time. I sort of lashed out physically after his first interaction with a woman and he came home with two women and he came home at three thirty am warning. That was really painful for me because I was still in this marriage that was hard and but to to paint me out as a physically abusive person because of that is really just looking for ammunition in order to say. I'm not safe mode on and I need to leave during Cova and you know listen. Every mother is singing the same tune why? I am home cooking three meals a day. Homeschooling three children two of whom are too young to really be able to do anything on their own. The eleven year old better but still. I'm having to manage all of that and you know. Make sure we have groceries and make sure we have toilet paper and paper towels and just all the stuff that is coming with this and this is the time he wants to like also make me try to keep our children safe from their own father moving out because he's not safe from someone he's been married to. I'm safe enough to leave the children with. I'm safe enough. I I mean I'm safe enough for everything it just. It's just like such a to me. It's such a it's such a middle finger and my face in the middle of this horrifying thing that's happening all over the globe. But didn't you is that you would like to be able to live in the home but continue you relationship. Would you girlfriends I certainly would like that I'm not doing that I mean I could. I could do that but I would have to leave and it would be unsafe. Like the LE- let's say and move into an apartment. I would not be able to see children and you know right now. That looks like it's at least a month based on what the authorities have said and I'm not willing to not see my children for a month and especially at this time of transition and quite frankly I I am concerned for them. You know because I think it is hard to process this. You know. It's hard for both of us and and for my wife being alone with children but the all all the responsibility without meeting with the help at all. Because if I can't see them I can't help and then I'm worried about the stress and the feedback from that with the kids So for all those reasons. I'm SORTA trapped. This may be a time where in fact you accorded to primarily be the rule of parents and your individual needs may have to be on the backseat from as far. 'cause that's not no it doesn't ashby fine. It's an right. What I eat is if I fight it like what am I supposed to do it? Inserts option is just a you know give her the Middle Finger and say look. It's not like I'm out running around our one relationship and that person's also being extremely careful and I do have to leave home now right to go get groceries apt to go to the office you know once or twice a week. That's ovid sprayed and well-being burder airfoil. I could just say look in my opinion. That's good enough and on you know I'm coming home every day. Even the problem is that that's GonNa create so much friction anger with my wife because she won't tolerate it and what I'm trying to do that. Help the kids is hurting. Because she's gone bananas and in that and that's impacting the kids. You know I don't know what to do what we need to say what. You're trying to do to help the kids as hurting. What are you trying to do to help the kids staying and supporting you as a Kolpak? Not Hurting the kids. What's hurting the kids in hurting me? Okay what's hurting Barbie dolls in the in in what's hurting me is living with someone who's has so much contempt for me and feels that. I am trying to control you by asking you to isolate with your family. Which is what the governor is asking us to do. And I'm sorry that that doesn't work with your social plans but this is a time that suffering argue with you anymore. Nobody you are. I'm I'm saying I'm not happy about it but you are you are you are arguing as of yesterday and okay okay. So by attorneys are telling me to leave quiz when she raged. She was beating herself up. She's she self injures. Do we really want to go down this road? I want you to understand? Why is it that I'm fighting you us but am I just self am I just images stuff you let me stop you okay You don't have to try and convince me I'm not a lawyer and I don't have to clean your case. You prefer for him to be in the home even though you probably don't want him there either except for what you can do right and you prefer to be elsewhere. Do you meet your girlfriend's. Nah but I want to. Of course. Okay that's normal. WanNa make but you don't want to be there but you're going to do it because all in all it's the more responsible thing to do in effect just it's a very strange thing. I'm GonNa tell you as your as therapies your feelings for a moment. Don't really matter nearly as much. It's your sense of responsibility. It's simply you're doing things because practically it's the best thing to do at this moment neither of you are going to be pleased with it if you can at best expressed the slightest appreciation for each other rather than pissing on each other as you do and presenting the other in in their worst versions. I don't do don't need to worry about me thinking that you are. That's kind of a woman because I am not paying attention to this just so you know what's painful for me to be characterized. In the way that I'm being characterized as not because of any external view of it is because it feels so like such a betrayal. Yes I have been cooking for this man. Three meals like good meals a day and serving him with pleasure and when he does something that hurts me and I get upset. He calls his lawyer. And it's like I don't understand I just to me. That just feels so contrary to trying to be peaceful together in the situation. I am grateful that he's here and I tell him every day that I'm grateful. And he is so angry that he cannot see his girlfriend. And it's my fault and I just at. What point is my children's safety? Our Children's safety kick. Can I just am asking him please? To just surrender. This is the end of our marathon. This is the end. Kovic will not be for the rest of his life. And it's just. Why do we have to have this the end of our marathon BA filled with contempt? It feels a necessary to me. It feels like all I want is to honor these twenty-five years saying we got through this together with love and respect and honesty and authenticity. So I would suggest to US something a lot. More modest no. I do not think that this moment that you're going to have love and respect and honesty. You haven't had it till now. You're not going to southern the invented at best. I am suggesting that you could be putting your fault lines on the side for a moment and just try to be the best team you can be for the job at hand. I can do that. It would be nice if you could each experience some form of acknowledgement from each other. About what you are doing for each other that would go along with you know you. Can I just have some appreciation for the fact that I am managing these kids and their schedules? And everybody's food and the cooking. Can I just get some acknowledgment and his answer to me was every woman's doing this? I always tell you how much I appreciate what you do. I'm also managing my business is very challenging. With my my whole team you know scattered everywhere. But I'm grateful to you for that for Atta boys every two seconds. I tell you like when you could. I give them to you because I do love you. About what a great parent. You are your dedication. How you come up with are you. 'cause you're the first person to talk about? Broken Barbie see it right now. Feeling like like the person next to me is like an all star litigator right and it's like I'm not I can't even talk and every little little things being cross examined real. I just live English essner out and we should just like. Why can't we just focus on responsibilities right now rather than there is? Your is your advice to me than because what I'm really challenged by is the contempt. The contempt feels like poison to me. Because I haven't grieved the marriage who knows how long this has been going on in his head and knocked to name right. This is all I feel. Shellshocked is your advice to me to just be able to ignore the contempt and just almost like how at work there might be a person who hates me and we still have to work together and just barrel through is. You're advising a little bit. It's a little bit more nuanced and debt. Yeah the first thing I'm going to see is I'm going to repeat it. You'RE GONNA have to try and put your four lines on the sides and just simply talk from the place of two people who are managing a collaboration of a challenging situation. That is quite scary. Not Because of the immediate. But just because the word that you've known devoted that you have lived into now the future that you've imagined a word you girls has known is no more and probably won't be the same that's coming back and each of you a dealing with uncertainty and on top of it you have the certainty uncertainty if you want of. What's happening to your relationship. A piece of it is ending. You have idea where it's going either. You have no idea how you daughters will react to it once. It happens right now. It's it's been tortured but the but during the same. How so what you in another room you know you dare me wake up with them. Every day they see you and you even more home than than you usually been when you get into your rapture your contemptuous rapture together you losing touch with reality. You are frustrated. You're upset you don't want to be there and a part of you will need to not blame her for not being there. Not Because you conscious yes saying. It's her fault because fundamentally you trapped with her. You're not just trapped in your home because of covet you trapped with her and you feel like you know trapped into housing trapped into relationship so kindness would go a long way. You don't have to like each other. You don't have to love each other. That's why get away with the big words. Love respect friendship. You know where their use the word and the next minute you punch. You know you're doing a lot for each other. Both of you just acknowledged those and don't have to ask for it and even more than acknowledging the thing that the other person did thanks for cooking. It's that's very thoughtful of you. Acknowledged not just what the other person did who deal the kristen is. You can't go around constantly telling her the lasting I want to do is be here with you. Even if you don't say a word Mr you face is just losing it and but you can't go around and lasting reminding you would rather be anywhere than here would be you know this dense in dismal moment. Because you're only two three weeks into it. You've got a few more weeks to go if not months. This be realistic. You goes on going back to school in two weeks and you're not going back to the office in two weeks and you need to be able to talk with your friend here. This woman that you've been with for twenty five years and talk about the nerves about running this company and trying to keep it going and talking with your workers and you carry a lot you the boss of this company. Okay you carry a lot. That's an enormous. None of them might work at night to talk about. It's great what the motions are. He had a death in his family. He's had ups and downs and he does come to me. That's wonderful that's what you did for each other. But depending on what's happening in his private life which I'm not privy to then suddenly like it turns ice cold when Jones cool. That's hope in fall Yes I wouldn't Vince. Court you will have to basically at this moment. Not Ask him to warm up now ask him to explain not get into reasoning with him about how he has. No Right. You simply tell him. We have separate rooms. This is probably where you need to be at this moment. You're going to need to learn to stay away from each other and aggregate being together apart.

Alison Roman, Slice of New York Pizza
"Your last meal is sponsored. By Heritage distilling company craft and small batch vodkas Gins whiskies drink locally drink responsibly. BAIRO SEATTLE. I'm Rachel Bell and this is your last meal a show about famous people in the stories behind the foods. They love most today on the program bestselling sewing cookbook author. Alison Roman Allison is everywhere. These days she's been zipping around not only the country but the entire world Toronto blended ended. But still. That's not in this country. She's been on book tour for her new cookbook. Nothing fancy which is already a New York Times bestseller and you can see her signature. Orange orange-red lips and matching nail Polish on seemingly every magazine. TV Show newspaper and podcast including fine. Hello now this is alison the second bestselling cookbook. Her first baby is dining in and she also writes columns for the New York Times and Bone apetite magazine. And I think that Allison is responsible for getting being a whole new generation excited about food and cooking. She's young she's Sassy these are things that old people say. I am really dating myself here. Doc She's also very opinionated. She has a lot of hot takes on food including the fact that she thinks Pumpkin Pie disgusting thing and should never be baked again. She likes what she likes and she wants you to like it too. She also does a really good job on the instagram again. I'm Gary Old. What is happening in this? intro allison is famous miss for two recipes in particular. These two recipes went crazy viral. Yeah I know what that means. Despite the fact that I'm eighty these recipes went super viral and fans basically basically created hashtag nicknames. For them. I was the cookie. The cookies are a better topic chunk for I mean honestly. I had no idea that we're GONNA take off the way that it did but it did and it's just a really good cookie and then there is the stoop. I don't know what the official recipe title is anymore. I'll people now to tell well at this deal. But there's sixties that are cooked in ginger and garlic and onion and gets coconut milk added to it and the dark leafy Greens and finished with the more Gilbert. Now I've made it is good. It is very good but it is not what we're here to talk about today. Today we get to talk about one of the most delicious things in the whole whole wide world. What am I very very favorite foods today? We talk about New York Pizza and we will actually get an answer to the age old question. Why can't you get good pizza or bagels outside of New York City now any New Yorker? We'll tell you it's all about the water but is it. Is it really so it is all about the water or eight is a lot about the water. Holly Rigo Owns New York water maker a company that can convert any any tap water in the world into New York City tap water. Yeah no this is a real thing he did it for Tony. Tony is a pizza restaurant or are in New York who struggled to create the same pies when he opened a place in California. We will here lots from both of these guys later in the show. But I apply chat with Allison listen. Roman Allison's new book. Nothing fancy is all about cooking for for friends and family but she is very clear that she does not like the word entertaining. It's too loaded. It's too much pressure. She prefers having people over the word entertaining. Relief freaks people out. I think that that makes you feel like you have to have matching plate the correct amount of chairs and have things time and everything needs to be hot and it it stresses people out. It's like not comforting word you know especially if it doesn't come easy to you I feel like when people suggest entertaining. It's like Oh people are gonNA come into my house and they're going to judge me for like my cooking abilities or my furniture choices or a million other things and I feel like having people over is just immediately more casual and immediately more relaxing. 'CAUSE you're inviting people into your how the book is kind of a choose your own adventure depending on how comfortable you are with cooking and how tired you are that night so you could just make a couple of tips or you could set up a fully stocked. Baked Potato Bar which I plan on doing at some point or you can cook a big piece piece of meat and serve it with a lemony salad. Lemons and anchovies show up a lot in her recipes. Or you can just order a pizza and make your own salad to go with it. Whatever it takes to get people around your table so the last time you had people over? What did you make I made a big Ham and my mom is in town and I have some friends over Sunday. I I made like a giant smoked ham which I didn't make it. I bought the HAM. I heated a- of it and then I served it with a bunch of like roll then like tiny pickles and mustard because we had been traveling over the weekend so it was sort of like a an opportunity to like do like a semi homemade thing. where I maybe beautiful beans and I made a really good salad that everything else is kind of star by and together on the table and everybody loved it? It was great so I eat out so much and a few two years ago I ate out even more and so having friends over or going. To someone's house was the novelty. That was more exciting than going out and it was happening so infrequently frequently that when someone actually invited me over for dinner I was just like yes and I think there's something that happens at home that doesn't happen in a restaurant like first of all you've linger longer because you don't have to leave You're not worried about spending money. There's not that end of the meal having to do the check which I don't really like that part of a meal And I feel oh you have different conversations like you can move into the living room after you're at the table like things are just different. There's a different vibe. It's not loud which it usually I mean depending ending on the household yeah And you're you're not with a in a room with a bunch of strangers right like it's just you and a couple of folks who you know and you like and you get the hang out in in a place and it's just you guys. It's a lot more intimate. I think a lot more special I am trying to do. What Allison is preaching which is not taken too seriously because I always think I have to make something really good and then I'll go over to a friend's house? She has a couple of little kids and they'll just have the most basic dinner. It's like rice some steamed Broccoli and some chicken and it's fine not that great but I don't care like I just like being there and I appreciate that someone cooked for me so I need to think about that when I am doing my own. Not Entertaining but having people over. I had someone over last night. I need a green curry and then I kept apologizing that the curry wasn't thick enough. You just gotTa let it go. Man got it stopped telling people that your food isn't good when they're eating eating it. Okay so time for a quick break but when we come back Alison Roman reveals her last night It's still our here on your last meal with our sponsor heritage distilling company and growing up a deprive little Jewish girl. I wasn't allowed to have an advent calendar during Christmas time now. I didn't care about Christmas. I loved Hannukah but this advent calendar was the one thing that I wanted. It looked so fun to get to Push Open that little perforated window and pull out one of those chocolates. That I later realized tastes really bad. It's like a little piece of plastic but I didn't know that at the time okay ran over by point is that heritage. distilling company makes this amazing spirits advent calendar first of all these tiny bottles of booze are so much better than those gross plastic chocolates but second of all it is the same amount of fun every day in December leading up to Christmas. You get to put pop out one of these little windows and pull out. I don't know like a lavender flavored. Vodka Vodka or a heritage whiskey. Maybe a brown sugar bourbon. There are eleven different spirits in this advent calendar. And this can be yours just go to heritagedistilling DOT COM. That is also where you can find a store near you that sells their spirits. And depending on where you live you might be able to order a bottle right to your door. heritagedistilling DOT COM and an all right. So it's time for the big question. Alison Roman. What do you want for your last meal Either like a really crispy pizza pizza like a slice of pizza or like a really crispy roast chicken so crispy is key love the crispy food. So what's your perfect piece piece of pizza as it come from somewhere or is it something you make yourself. Oh I would never make it myself. I was making like Like cheater sorta like grandma style for Kacha a pizza or something like that but The kind of aren't talking about is like a New York style. Play they reheat in the oven and it gets really really quickly in the little pieces of cheese Kinda get burned at the end and the cross gets really creepy almost burned like I love that. There's a lot of places in New York that I like. It was not fairly one place but you know in in my head I I thought pizza taste like and I want it right now. Is it the classic slice with like the Grease on top that you fold. Oh Yeah. Are you a folder her. Oh definitely not a folder. I will towards the end but I don't believe that like a pizza should droop. I don't think you should ever meet the fault. I don't like the folding either because then the pizzas gone half as fast and I WANNA eat like a bigger surface area of pizza. Yeah exactly and I don't like it when the cheese gets removed from the saw. Oh I think otherwise. You're basically making a pizza sandwich. And that's not what I'm here for. And you're from California but you've lived in New York for a while. Do you feel now that you take New York pizza for granted because it's around all the time time or do you still know how good you have it. I definitely know how good I have. It and that is not lost on me. Can you name a couple of your favorite places that you've been into lately. Yeah Yeah I love. I Love Scars Pizza. I Love Stop Brooklyn Pizza. I love upside pizza. Joe's great eight classic. There's a there's a time Alison Romans last. Meal is a slice of New York Pizza. If you've had it and you get it. But gushing that people do or Ray slice of New York pizza is not hyperbole. It is a true magical experience when I go to New York and make a huge priority actually was when we went for the James Beard. Awards to that little thing I planned a pizza walking tour and eat a lot of it. When I'm there distrup- some of my favorites as anyone's wondering I love print street? I love Dofara. I love Joe's on Bleeker. I really love Prince Street. I know I already said it. But it's so good but what defines a New York slice. What what are its characteristics? How would you explain it? Well I'm GonNa let my to New York pizza guys. Explain Polar Rico is president of New York water maker Antonio owns order pizza. centric restaurants Levante Long Island city Queens Lonzo's bk in Brooklyn Heights Lv k. e. Park Slope Brooklyn and Lbj. In Studio City Los Angeles New Pizza should be able to stand up on. Its own so you pick it up. You can folded. They should be a slight crunch. When you fold it? You can hear it crack a little little bit literally when you take out your pizza. Slice your triangle. You can hold it and it can stick straight out when you take a bite you can hear the crunch but the next next layer has to be the dough itself cannot be too dense. It can't be dry. It has to have a sponginess to it. All this is the basis that supports a good layer very thin layer of tomato sauce for me. The perfect Meta sauces like we use them. My restaurants just fresh tomatoes canned hand milled little bit assault olive oil mets. It Roy Cooks in the Alvin with the Pizza Pizza. Is they buy these sauces. Already reducing the ED oregano dried onion powder and garlic powder and they cook it for hours and what you do. Is You just so you just destroy the fresh brightness of tomato and on top of that a properly proportioned amount of Mozzarella in my case I mean. I don't mind the shredded Mozzarella I prefer the The fresh Mozzarella you know when you when you watch commercials and you see all these things from Domino's in the middle and they leave the crust and doing crazy things to make people eat the crust like filling it with cheese. He's and stuff in New York City. You never see anybody leave the crush to everybody each every. Since basically the best part Tony grew up. Working in his family's pizzerias and Italian restaurants. Since he was thirteen years old he loved the kitchen and he loved food. Then I went beyond got older. I went to school. I went to all the different colleges got. All my degrees. Practice is law and then I after a pretty good locker. I said you know what I want to get back into the business so about twelve years ago I decided enough's enough and I came back into the restaurant on business on my own. As opposed to having worked for family I decided to eventual for my own. I was excited to talk to you. Because you have this rare and unique experience where you've been making aching pizza in New York for a long time and then you try to make it all the way on the West Coast in California and for years all that you hear my mom's from Brooklyn and my whole childhood. It's like it's the water it's the water and it's like is it. The water is an urban legend. So what did you discover when you tried to open a pizza restaurant on the west coast. Well I mean truth. Truth be told there. There's a lot of different elements that make good New York Pizza. Water is definitely important and for people who don't believe that's the case. Now try washing your hair in place. And it's very our water versus soft water results. Totally Different New York has classic software one of the best waters in the United States by the way so that really does help our pizza stuck so about five or six years ago I ventured out to La Looking for location. Open up to make pizza and we had tried a few times and we couldn't get the quality that we we wanted then I started using bottled water from La I found a bottle of water that had the PH level very close to New York water. The quality was good but it was cost prohibitive to keep buying bottled water. Two years ago I was at the Expo in Las Vegas and I ran into these is from New York. They were pitching this thing. Called The New York water maker and it's a machine that takes takes the local water wherever you are and does some sort of Voodoo to it in what spits out is something very very close to the water. Finally when we got this machine hooked up and running. We were able to make pizza with the quality that we have in New York. So the northern legend perhaps is definitely an important component in the baking process. Absolutely okay so this is totally totally blew my mind. I've been hearing people say it's the water I mean. Since I was a little child my entire life people trying to justify why bagels and pizza are better in New York City. But I've never heard any actual science or any explanation or evidence of any kind to back it up. It usually just people fetching about how bad bagels goals are everywhere outside of New York City and I just want to say something here because I know he's going to send me a frequent message and complain about it. I just WANNA say that. My Buddy over at Rubinstein's bagels in Seattle title. He makes a really good Bagel. I know you're listening. Andrew go visit him. His bagels are very good anyway. Tony discovered a company called New York. Water maker I grew up in in Brooklyn New York and then in Staten Island. New York show. I have always had an affinity just like every New Yorker that's out there to Newark Pizza and BAGELS. That's Paula Rego again. Many years ago I used to travel. The country was on a plane three or four times a month and no matter where I went I can never find a good piece of pizza or a good Bagel out there but what happened is is about ten years ago. Twelve years ago I got into the water conservation and water filtration business. So it's not like we just came up with a couple of crazy people who said hey. Hey I want to make good pizza. The story is that we do own a fluids engineering company. We have science. We have technology. And the automaker was created I was going on a business trip to Florida and as I'm walking out the door about ten o'clock in the morning our chief science officer basically stops me and says hey where you're going and I said I have to the go-to Staten Island. And I got to pick up some some BAGELS and bread before I go. I'll see my mom before I leave you know and he goes. Why would you go pick up bagels in bread Before you go to Florida. He's from the Philippines. And I said well I any good New Yorker that showed up to to see family and friends down in Florida or anywhere down south without bagels breads. They basically Oh hang us you know and he immediately said is it because of the water and I said absolutely. That's exactly what it is. The water quality down there just doesn't match up with the city so he very casually said to me. Why don't we just make a system to convert Florida water into New York City water along the science of what we do for these big filtration nations systems do realize how much of a business this is? What a need this satisfies in the in the culinary world? That's really how the New York water maker was was born. Pulses Newark City has some of the best quality water in the country. Now other places might have slightly cleaner water or equally tasty water. But he says New York City TAP HAP- water happens to be perfectly formulated for baking bread bagels and pizza crust. It affects how the gluten in the dough. How the bread rises and how the crust crossed forms? It makes it a lot crispier and crunchier Which doesn't happen when you have hard water or water that has a high? TBS which is total dissolved resolve solids which is just the solids that are in the water. It's the chlorine levels. It's the PH levels. New York City has a PH level. That is pretty much consistently neutral which is seven point up all these different things changed but not so much the flavor it's more of the texture of the way the dough is going to react the fermentation tation time of the dope. Water played a bigger part in pizza than you may think about it. This way when you're making a pizza a gourmet pizza has all the best ingredients. You got the best cheese. Geez you got the best tomatoes. You got the best What's IT L. A.? One item that most pizzerias just take for granted. CanNot Control is the water they are basically basically limited to their tap water. You have to realize that water is sixty to seventy percent of the product that they're serving when it comes to pizza so right now. They're working with pizzerias BAGEL shops. Bakeries are starting to work with coffee shops and Burris. Because you can imagine that there's a lot of water involved there and these restaurants can pay two hundred and fifty dollars. There's a month to licence one of his machines that works out to about twelve dollars a day. Every system is customized week. It's not something that anybody can buy put on the wall and hey it's gonNA turn their Arizona Water Texas Water CHICAGO WATER INGENUITY WATER. We need to get a water. Sample breakdown what. Water composition is we customize our tank and it goes through the seven stage process to change the water. I goes through. When it filters it disinfects it softens the water then it actually gets hit with electronic resonator which literally changed the frequency of the water molecule itself and then it goes into the tank which is where we they are patent than the magic happens which is where we convert all of the characteristics of Ph alkalinity calcium levels we customize taking and their water and turning into ideal water for pizza bagels breads etc whenever characteristics they want and then runs through a final carbon filtration to get out any remaining eating And what comes out on the other side is the closest thing to New York City tap. Water that you're going to get outside of New York City. Tony says is California pizzas taste just like home. There is no difference. I mean we're using just about the scene. Ph level water mineral content. It's it's the same water for all intents and purposes so oh I've had clients who live in New York. La and vice versa and were astounded by the fact that they're tasting the same quality product that I had in New York or La and back and forth and their response is finally found. Something that's akin to New York Pizza. Paul says there are about thirty cities in the country currently using his system Florida California. I've biggest emotional channel connections. I guess the truly where most of the Yorkers transplant and it is emotional. People are emotional about the foods that they grew up with. When you leave a part of the country three and you go somewhere else it becomes kind of fabled I mean ever since I left California become even more obsessed with Burritos but have to say when I go back? They you don't taste as good as I remember. No we have this weird thing where I'm from called Panarotti which is like a deep fried cow's zone okay. And growing up. It was the greatest latest thing I had ever eaten in my life went back a couple of years later after being here for a minute. Didn't live up to my memory. See I don't know if it's just our taste buds maturing or if we've just put it on this high pedestal never be matched but I don't know I've never lived in New York so the pizza always tastes really good to me. Can we talk about cheese. Because whenever I go to New York I eat a lot of pizza and yeah I noticed that the cheese is often different especially if I go to print street pizza the cheese is that really really bright white instead of kind of the more yellowy cheese do you. What is is it a different kind of cheese or different quality real pizza when it came to this was invented in Italy and came to this country? They used Fior di Latte which is a cow based fresh cheese in Naples outside of Naples they use Buffalo Milk Motala which is similar to a little but again it's a fresh cheese. What happened over the past hundred years from pizza really started to evolve and become more commodity product? The cheese makers started using a processed cheese that contains a lot of oil out of additives so years ago ago. When you had your classic New York slice you would fold it and a whole bunch of oil would drift out of it? Because that's the result of the process cheese that you had there aren't really Cheez. Its manufacturing it's like having a slice likes of American cheese VELVEETA CHEESE AT UC. That's more white. Chances are it's a freshman made with cow's milk it's not aged and it doesn't have that yellow color because it's not manufactured it's just fresh. Byproduct of cheeses usually consumed within one to two weeks of being manufactured. So better pizzerias will use that fresh It's much more expensive. But it's a high quality product. It doesn't have that Greece. It doesn't have that oil doesn't have that silly that you get from the the process once okay. Quick break but when we come back can a person actually sleep make a living writing about food. Alison Roman will open up and talk about some things that people don't generally talk about going to talk about money and how to make it when you're working for yourself.

It wasn't Raymond heady very coveted fulltime job at bone apetit magazine when she decided to quit and go off on her own. When you left on appetite I think a lot of people would be like? Why would you do that? It's bone apetite. It's amazing job. I've heard you on other shows talking about how much you liked it. Could you talk about why you decided to leave and go out on your own. I think that I really wanted to have control over the full picture how it sounded with the recipes. Look like the kinds of content that I was able to create the freedom. I think that I had reached a point. where they're worth balls? That I was coming up against that was like limiting my own autonomy and I I really sort of crave the like freedom to make decisions about my own career to see how far I could take it on my own without the support of an entire brand you know. I know I always wished that I could be more like that. But I'm like Oh God insurance they love having this insurance this paychecks. Insurance Insurance does as I know but I really admire what you did because I always respect people who you know go off on their own and take a risk in for you totally paid off and one of the things if I paraphrase paraphrase that I've heard you say is that you would rather struggle and be out on your own but take a risk can be independent and free Rather than working for somebody else and and I thought that was really cool cool and I just wanted you to elaborate on that a little bit. I think you it's so challenging at times insurance was really nice to have and now I pay for it right. South and a 401k was really nice to have but now I have a roth. IRA that contribute to. And I am still scared. You know I'm still hustling like. I might not make it. I'm still trying to figure out what my plan is. They don't have one but I'm so happy. I'm so so happy for the work that I've done and what's really nice. It's over the past years. I have other friends around me that have done the same thing and people starting their own businesses and working for themselves and learning how to work together and it's really cool to be like. Oh we're in charge of our own careers in our own destiny Zinni ultimately like being able to make the call about my own schedule and opportunities that I wanted to pursue or turn down or whatever is really empowering and I hope this isn't personal tell me if it is but you know I know so many people who are trying to make it as food writers and artists in you know have some people have jumped off and done their own thing you write for the New York Times Times. You write a column for Bona Petite and your cookbooks. Is that enough to make a living as a food writer or do you still have to do other things. Oh definitely not I definitely you have to do other things I mean I could. I think for me I live alone. I'm not married. I don't have kids Iran. I don't know I have a pretty low overhead in terms of what I would consider like making a living but I still feel like just with writing alone. Writing doesn't pay any money especially for newspapers magazines and where the money is. Is it like these dinners dinners that I do. For browns or event or you know different types of collaborations that for like other companies that are interested getting into the food space so writing does not pay those. I remember when I first got job as a columnist and I posted my first article somebody in the comments. I didn't even know I was like. Oh you know announcing my call airtime airtime called it and they wrote to their friends. I guess they said Oh now we know how she affords all those vacations and I was like. Oh honey it's not some from the New York Times like they pay me very fairly and I'm very grateful for what they've given me. It's like above and beyond but at the same time. Whoever thinks that people are making money writing writing for newspaper? You have no idea how much a gallon of don't cost like that's not where the money comes from And that's fine. That's not why we do it and you know it's like I didn't become a writer. I could make a ton of money picked to careers that like. We're never going to be that Liberty Media and restaurant work so I'm sort of digging myself out of that hole now figuring out how to actually actually make some money one day if I ever plan on buying a home or I don't know but I think you can definitely make a living. I think it's just that you have to diversify and you have to figure out like not every every job I take is something that I'm passionate about but I need to make money but the older I get the more I work. The more work that I do is is almost always something that I want GonNa be doing. Like I feel very grateful for that. And that was alison Romans. Last meal Allison's new book is for sale.

290: The Birds of New York
"I'm Tracy case met and this is the slowdown slowdown. Their walls of windows. In my house I love them because I can see outside trees grass animals. I don't especially relish seeing humans walking past looking sometimes in at me but I accept it as a fair trade off. Maybe the outside world feels the same way about me looking out at it sometimes. Birds crash into the glass often they will get up after a moment and walk or hop or even fly away occasionally. They don't rise. There are ways to prevent this from happening but none is one hundred percent effective and we must go outside to bury them. Respectfully in the ground seeing birds caught in airports or shopping malls is heartbreaking. I say that because I myself hate the degree to which I've become a prisoner of these human spaces once in Manhattan a pigeon in hopped down from a low corness and landed briefly on my shoulder before dropping down to the sidewalk to forage for crumbs. I guess he saw me me as a useful intermediary to the extent that I have bought into the mythology of New York City pigeons as vermin. I was horrified but I also felt a bit of respect for the creature to whom I is a human may well have represented a kind of unfortunate investigation. I sometimes used to see pigeons in New York. Picking the breading off Fried Chicken leavings littering the street. The image of a bird pecking at wing bones. Struck me as depraved. But again perhaps we humans had left them little choice I like the birds who look you in the eye as if to say hello citizen. I've been persuaded to accept you as my equal. Sometimes crows up on a building seemed to be laughing. Living it up on a break from work or else stealing time from a miserly boss. Aw there are tiny birds who scurry away from human traffic but even they can turn fierce and protection of their young. Today's palm is Francisco eeks Allergan 's the birds of New York. The birds of New York. ORC Live out on cornices chimneys and roofs on top of tall buildings amid granite and cement every the morning they sing Thanksgiving chance to the busy son of summer. The birds of New York are confused by so many city lights and and take turns flying around day and night trapped in cages. They die fast. They've never known wild grain but they are true culinary connoisseurs of city garbage. The birds of New York make love in full flight because there's no oh space reserved for them on the ground. Playing they chase each other around the tips of towers waving their wings. They laugh at the traffic of the avenues below the birds of New York dream of being poets of the air artists. It's that paint with their feet masterpieces. Nobody sees some mischievously dive like kamikaze flyers and and bombard disgruntled executives crossing Wall Street. The birds of New York are the most streetwise in the world. The cruelest coolest. And yet in the nest the tenderest of all as well some grow tired and crash against glass windows that prevent them from entering and smelling the fresh flowers in vases the slowdown.

You're a long beard and everything took a job halfway around the world a former lifetime in guam the three months since they're the biggest earthquake of the century at eight point. Oh was an advance lost one of my guys which was as sad piece soul and <hes> essentially married the boss of that job and moved from california to new york on visit then came back and tally in the back in the year nineteen ninety three carroll gardens brooklyn where where i landed. That's my new york city home. <hes> and i repeat that i said that all the time because it really really is and <hes> that second lifetime i try to future commodities <hes> anybody out there who's near <hes> my age than yours might remember eddie murphy and trading places and when you see those scenes at the the end of the show at the end of that <hes> movie that's actually the context. The show is that is orange juice orange juice futures but in reality. That's the cotton fit. It's actually the physical bit that i was in when i traded ninety three through right up into ninety nine a lot went on. I landed in new york. When the first bombing happened so i walked into the at four world trade where the near fort trade used to be no longer there and at that time there were these air conditioning units and sizes semi truck trailers trailers out in the street pumping air into the trade center so as you might imagine <hes> everybody tells me i'm a new yorker. I definitely am post nine eleven. <hes> i think we're all new yorkers and that goes for all my canadian brothers and sisters up there as well because <hes> you guys were part and parcel to helping us recovery just emotionally emotionally if if if nothing else <hes> here in the city so and and <hes> i used to you know obviously here new york city if you're not familiar we have the subway <hes> which we we you complain about but <hes> people on the west coast. It's better than anywhere else so i'll leave that to the to the audience but <hes> you know i would <hes> oftentimes mm stock to buddies on the trading floor in one in brooklyn heights which if you're not familiar with the map <hes> downtown manhattan the world trade center is right across the east river from from <hes> an right it across the brooklyn bridge <hes> from brooklyn heights what we understand his brooklyn the first bedroom to manhattan real estate <hes> no correlations there and these things were happening with me. During that time i was excited to be in new york and became addicted to the adrenaline of the trading floor and we used to joke either trade commodities or everybody thinks the stock market's roughly the same exercise either a trader or you drive in indycar or you drive a taxi because skill set doesn't translate late that used to be the old joke but when i started in real estate i was looking for a a opportunity with an open at an income income situation what they didn't have me handcuffed what i what i found very quickly in. My finance career handcuffed to the market. If the stock market's open futures futures markets open if those markets are open at that time we were open open outcry trading so you're standing around in a circle mentioned trading places and your sponge one hundred guys yelling at each other it's organized chaos and <hes> in fact some skill sets new translate. Nobody can get into and another time but <hes> real estate was something i was i. I didn't i knew historically. I recognized as i've got on the train. One day buddy said hey you don't have to take this extra stock in brooklyn heights and you can walk from their well being to california when you native i don't walk. What are you kidding me. Don't you're not taking my car and that's a whole nother pieces well but i walked down montague street which when you come to visit we will see and it's <hes> it's the brooklyn heights little shopping district two blocks long it leads right up from the promenade and then you see lower manhattan and that's that's the brooklyn heights sort of <hes> peace there and there's a little blue square on a sandwich board out in front two of one of the <hes> brownstone their walk down the street and it had little finger as you classically pinpointing upstairs come talk to dave riley and dave was <hes> manager of cola banker hunt kennedy and transferred you would think it's an attorney versus but i recognize cold banker brand been from the west coast and went up and talked to him and <hes> and that was the beginning <hes> my real estate career and vision and the dream that we hear so often of i can go work when i want to and make as much money as i want to and it's all so easy <laughter> <laughter> and i tell you in in closing that little piece i had zero people on the planet. I thought it was a good idea that i should leave my finance job on the trading floor at the trade center and go start the real estate career which everybody you have to have a lot of money. You have to be this. You have to be that you have have to know all these things and <hes> again my wi- which i'm not i'm not going to be handcuffed this place and die here. It's not like all of all of cliches in the movie questions at the end or closer to reality than i want to admit quite frankly so so that was my beginning nineteen ninety nine. My original card says back pct nineteen ninety nine that was about the year. I got into real estate as well so we've been in the business. Although you're much much much older than me <hes> we've been. We've been in business for the same amount of time that led to other things for you. Including senior vice president of court corcoran group is the corcoran group well so barbara corcoran everybody knows from shark tank now but the the corcoran group <hes> barbara corcoran in my opinion <hes> and that translates into where i am now is <hes> talking about charismatic etc some of the some of the the the accolades that we we all know <hes> good marketers are we you don't think about brokers agents say brokers but we know you and i and i and probably the audience now tuning in here understand that it's really the best marketer out there and that was barbara and she classic story definitely grabbed her book and newsmen. You've got but classic story. Barbara corcoran is <hes> there was a board turned it down in the co op so cooperative for you in the audience out there. I didn't know what it was either until i got the new york and that's a whole nother sidebar but the the the jackson <hes> the the the the bottom of that story is that you'd meet a board and you have to get approved in order to live in the building and you don't have to have any they can. They can say no for any reason so you can be declined for any reason and these these couple of guys declined. The dog was the got was the reason they got turned down so it gets barbara corcoran did she. She went out to central park and start interviewing dogs and turn it into this entire marketing thing and all of the new york city news channels showed up and she was out there. Interviewing in dogs in the tongue in cheek was dog got turned down from the board. I'm gonna teach you how to not become down. Here's what you should do to pass the board etc and it was just brilliant brilliant anthony before anybody was and nobody can really talked about it a much until decade later more but she she she was my inspiration <hes> very quickly in take us so that's actually what we call the very definition of real estate disruption which seems to be constant theme that seems to be concentrating anyway so you're the first <hes> broker <unk>. I've never met that's been inspired by both barbara corcoran and eddie murphy as it relates to actual real estate business anyway. Let's get into into the new york briefly and then we'll get into your business so a new york real estate. This may be the boring part or not so boring part depending on your your perspective. What's the average price for a home slash apartment in new york city right now. What's the bench line yeah. I love that gregg. Thanks for that question because here in new york city just to back to the top real real briefly is that there is no such thing because so many different properties type so we use used things like bedroom counts with regard to an apartment in order to say that so one bedroom apartment right harvard or square footage right. I guess is what you do. One bedroom apartment center square footage would be the down so easy right and then you go yeah but so david. You're talking about manhattan or brooklyn. No i get it. I want the appointment. Come to the chase. <hes> is an average their president about a million three right now and that can fluctuate several hundred thousand dollars depending on neighborhood wow well but a one bedroom apartment super clear. <hes> okay sounds like that actually sounds like montreal right now. I'll be straight up. What are the market trends. You're seeing in new york right now. I know goes by burl. I know this you know. I have a long history. I have a long history with new york myself from new york. Orca spent a lot of time in new york grownups. I new york very well. I know brooklyn heights very well too <hes> but i am i know goes by borough. I know that <hes> but what are some trends. You're seeing right now. I know that the new york if reading correctly has been on a decline for the last year so correct yep softening markets delineations that are different as as we begin from you know you start as broker early on and you're doing a certain property type and you you have a thought process escalating but we say luxury market <hes> the the very high end here is north of ten million and so that is something that has a separate sort of analysis in that it can be an indicator and certain things but it's not your everyday transaction action. <hes> luxury market is very soft and those are talking about things that usually trade when we talked about this particular property at this particular price on a luxury level could be a year or more listening in designed that way and it costs a lot to carry but but in general yes software market and uncertain there's a lot of uncertainty certainty certain sectors are incredibly strong and multiple bids in the same as saying that we see and we're in a market where demand always outweigh supply so that's our equation different than rest of the country for the most part in in your markets oftentimes as well well we at greater property group currently have thirty two million dollar listing yeah. Ah you know vertebrae now if you'd like some pointers on going north of thirty mil does give a shout skits show. We know it's no new york city but still most popular neighborhoods in n._y._c. right now. New york is the best for this because they have these little pockets that a pop up you know every year. There's this little niche neighborhood. That's like oh. It's soo so hot and you know in no-ho or something like that right. So is there any <hes> <hes> <hes> popular neighborhoods right now that are popping up as you know the next hottest neighborhood in new york city. It's it's it's funny. You ask that because most of new york is a laughed after anybody that says that <hes> out loud because you automatically identify yourself. It's from somewhere else but at the same time. I think there's an insight there that even our market in our local. We do this all the time neighborhoods that you would. You say rediscovered tribeca. What tribeca is where you know. They certainly sought after location action but we find it in the city of manhattan specifically on the island is that neighborhoods have evolved. Hell's kitchen is a great example and with your with you and your dad ads history here in the city <hes> that is essentially midtown west but if we look at a map in midtown west and it used to be just away from the train it was over. There was industrial. There was a lot of stuff going on in in. That's i love hell's kitchen. It used to be <hes>. It was just a well. It's just outside the tunnel right but hell's kitchen kitchen is awesome. Yeah i mean it's got all the cafes and the restaurants now and so there's a there's a thing can happen on that side real briefly as the highline which was recover recovery of the old raise train that used to come through buildings. That's fascinating for anybody visiting. Stay out of times square. Go and see some things that are actually real new york run through times square. Get your pictures and and get out and see the city <hes>. That's one thing a lot of development along that highline so it's it's this this urban recreation of an element that has been such a ah colored and fascinating history and then new development. That's going you know adjacent to it and the views that you get from those places tribeca seeing a restoration <hes> one one person that i'm ecstatic to have against no met and know over the last years veronica manetti and and everyone should i definitely check her out on instagram. <hes> veronica is <hes> just call her the leader of the surge in group who is the owner of the flat iron building once upon quantify that a piece of the chrysler building as well but but what i love about veronica and you can see her just from a public perspective is her dedication to to ask the business climate in the city of basically real estate restoration. We're gonna get sustainable and <hes> and somebody that you <hes> will meet sniff definitely wanted to get when you get here and somebody that should be in orbit all the time because her group is doing so many great things but <hes> the as a as a little bit <hes> sidebar the bar the flatiron building for the first time in recent history by decade is vacant and and she has been working the the the plan <hes> has been a number of different things every time it's fascinating because it is one of the top three most recognized popular pieces of history history in the city of new york <hes> and the plan <hes> that's been kicked around was going to become a hotel etc but the restoration of and become a sustainable and for me as a photographer agra for getting all those little air conditioning units out of the windows of the flattened building is going to be the first thing all celebrate <hes> but a lot there. That's fine <hes> so that's one piece of an iconic the thing that's happening <hes> tribeca seen bringing up <hes> veronica because she's doing things like taking <hes> <hes> white street and number of buildings there rest restoring during these buildings from another era. That won't be ever be built like that again. They are antiques their one offs. They are these ironclad <hes> in this such unique architecture texture and that's <hes> those are two places in manhattan specifically that are that are <hes> are seen a lot of resurgence again do do you remember watching them. Build the flat iron the building back in when was a bill early nineteen yeah early nineteen hundreds of his you bet it was a couple of days for my birthday. I was later that day. They call it the flattened building no i don't because it looks like an iron well before it was built that that little that little triangle bangel wedge there wasn't a flat iron so back in that period of time you had to iron that looks like an eye and when i think of now but it was literally only iron with a handle on it you put it on your so so the heat it up and then he sat in that's right. It's called a flatter and building but i'm but don't bump and actually we can talk for hours about the new york real estate market and <hes> you know a lifetime. I i'm gonna get on another podcast or another discussion. We're gonna talk about what's happening brooklyn williamsburg brooklyn hi. It's all that kind of stuff but look you know not so that's another discussion just different. Next time is <hes> waterfront adjacent to manhattan is as hot as manhattan itself south central park and adjacent to manhattan so there's a lot to talk about for sure yup used to be brooklyn was like kind of like the it was the cousin right like brooklyn was it wasn't manhattan manhattan or nothing but now brooklyn's just as popular. It's <hes> yeah yeah short response to that we used to when i first started in real estate. We would make these. These correlations are metaphors forced to manhattan neighborhoods. We would say well brooklyn. Heights is very much like the upper west side and <hes> williamsburg is very much like the village right aesthetically etcetera and for those that are we're in you know mainstream u._s._a. Or main street canada whatever however that looks very much different here. We have the unique thing about new york. Is you have a lot of different environments armaments all next door. Walk down a few streets. See something new so let's get into your business and your success eric. <hes> you know obviously obviously new york being the capital as you call it <hes>. You're busy real estate broker. What is a typical day in your life. Look like as a real estate agent in new york. City look a lot different now than it used to. You know once upon a time <hes> just like you know the the the the cliche where a lot of hats <hes> you know we suffer. I suffered through that early and what i realized in hindsight is i could how hustle everybody and then i realized the hustlers as well and i say that loosely because i'm not really a fan of the grind at the hospital those words you think are overdone a little bit but <hes> hold on. Let me just six to let me interrupt you. You to me are kind of the definition of the grind brian hostile because i know you yeah yeah no. That's odd for me think of it that way but showing up right so my first year rookie of the year and all that stuff they it comes along with. I didn't understand what i was doing. I didn't have any idea here's a phone. Here's a desk good luck and that's basically really started. You certainly didn't get taught how to make money getting getting the license. You know that that doesn't help anything <hes> but evolving from <hes> re really rushing for fast lord my story to <hes> a success early <hes> i spent eight months of that colo banker office and <hes> barbara corcoran pick gentleman by the name of frank to do you come to brooklyn. She wanted to step across the water and expand out of manhattan. <hes> piece barbara's story again five or six different. <hes> mom and pop brokerages told her to fly a kite. Take a walk kick rocks and the fifth one took her on. They actually had a partnership. We've talked about later when sh- when she ultimately sold corcoran into n._r._t. Who is the largest conglomerate in the united states of america but they kept the brand the front end the back end everything changes but <hes> it was it was it was a lot of success that caused me to realize i wasn't as successful as i thought i was right. I mean and there's a lot of and we it's easy to talk about all the shiny side of the apple <hes> but there's a there's iran side of the apple that's important as well and and <hes> never you know i always want everybody to. I learned the hard way not sure so happy to see you doing things like this because it's totally unnecessary for everybody to do it. The hard way the hard way not a lot of fun it can and being illusion of fun when running fast and you see dollar signs but but you you burn out hit the wall real real easy and real fast and it was it was the meltdown of oh a <hes> leaning right up to that <hes> two thousand four and into we were doing this with some resulting in new york city and we're doing a lot a new development here condominium development a lot of detail there. I'll skip through but when that <hes> we had a this almost forty seven unit building thing in williamsburg brooklyn specifically among a lot of other projects going on at the same time and it was about eighty percent sold and we were in the summer coming into the summer of l._a. And the guy cabbage dragging its feet a little bit and you needed another source of one more step with funding finish it and long story short. He cut his nose despite his face and by january of two thousand nine we were let people at a contracts and i'm you know in hindsight i look back. I was concussed. That was a big deal. That was in it. Just do you know for the sake of round numbers for me. That was the two years worth of blood sweat tears and about six hundred thousand dollars in income that just back rated as i stood there with my mouth open <hes> and you know we kept smiling kept working hard but <hes> there was a lesson there that we did not have <hes> and it took me another couple of years well. I would say a couple of years to really digest it. That's why i know they've dated morale today because yeah concussion. I got sort of <hes> pulled into looking. Maybe not even proactively. I thought i was for we i need to i need something. That's gonna work not let this ever happen again yeah and so that was the beginning of the systems that you and i know now a lot of the components that we touch on me talk so that was i literally can say out loud. I couldn't use to you but i probably like two or three million dollars. Walk right by me because i had no system for bias. If you didn't buy the new development that i was standing in we've got forty units to sell and there's about eight hundred people in line outside and my brain and didn't wasn't you know we were just on fire back then and all those buyers walked by me now in hindsight i go had had a system and my team properly in place laced holy cow we would've sold everybody else's project and ours and we don't do it in less than hard march yeah and we're gonna maybe talk talk about some setbacks along the wait a minute here. I'm going to ask you a question in the reason i the question is. How do you create leads and new clients in a place like new york city now. Let me set this up. A little bit because new york is unlike any other place in the country. They don't actually have an molasses or they have kind of a variation of an emma last but it's not the m._l._s. like we know it or or like the average agent or listener might know it new york city. Is you know no pun. Intended is an island onto itself. There is no m._l._s. there right so how do generate leads and new clients in a place like new york city but at the at the loaded it question there <hes> the m._l._s. is is is the crux and anybody that is obviously. We're talking about new york being different than everywhere else. Certainly <hes> earlier in the conversation also the most voyeuristic everybody in the world paying attention to what's happening in new york specifically real estate <hes> we do a lot of the same thing that you do and this was the first hurdle for you and i can both point to a time where we sat in a room with somebody who says i'm gonna tell you exactly what to do and then you're gonna go back and say that won't work in my market and i did a lot of that early on a lot of it <hes> it's about message to market match the simplest of the things things that we know to do become mundane and i need something next emulates me more so come on man. Let's play with that. We can make it better right <hes> and so that's so so the short answer. Is i do the same thing you it's about the the challenge is always didn't identify. The right message for me is is the right market. Markets are not just subsets when you say new york city subset that which borough and then which neighborhood and then which property type and now you've now you can and get down to what what the message should be so the fundamentals are important in does as you're hinting to but also to new york is a very networks. It's a very network heavy city. <hes> eric i mean eric didn't touch on this but eric works is network very heavily right. It's who you know yeah. It really isn't it's funny only had a meeting yesterday with one of our most dynamic <hes> managers <hes> here and by the way i in august eight eight eight sixteen <hes> which is to round numbers. I don't know if there's no ma neurologist but somehow that fascinates me eight hundred sixteen in two thousand sixteen after seventeen years at corcoran <hes> you might know i'm pretty monogamous. I don't move around and brokers in our market specifically new york bouncing around a lot in two thousand sixteen. I moved to compass and <hes> there's a lot that everybody can just google compass brechin than anything about new york city real estate and you find all you want about that disruptor extraordinaire but but that was <hes> the conversation yesterday was tony ugly who is a phenomenal broker as and now manager and coach and a lot of other things we talked about about what you just mentioned yesterday morning <hes> as we were trying to tackle as we do all the time analysis of what's working and what's not basically in it we what what's better and not and it network beginning we get focused and it came through the forest for the trees all those cliche things how many people are dead and you talk to your database with purpose <hes> right what what purpose so walked away yesterday just reminded again made me think when you've reached out again also we all know very much and i say that with an abroad statement but we we all know what to do a ah actually we understand etcetera etcetera but it's the what what we're doing now is being unwrapped the network it's the the practice to your point network is absolutely critical and i don't think any of us if we challenge ourselves you it to the level that we're capable of. It's a big gap in most agent business is nurturing past and present clients and leverage leveraging that for more referrals additional clients <hes>. It's it's a major major. Is your gap now. In new york. One of the things you have to be world class at is actually marketing being a world class marketer and that's something that you know you take friday night world-class market so when you approach when when we asked the question. How do you generate new clients in prospects of new york city. You just have to be a good marketer right like like you said to me message message to market man. It's the same thing what's the marketplace you're in and i i would take an offered the opportunity to in share with the audience as well that <hes> the these laws of attraction <hes> you if you think back to the conference that we we first met at i think i if if i'm thinking of the same one and look around at who's in the room right or the aesthetic things are how people carry themselves or whether charisma is or who who leans in and who leans away and all of these little simple things <hes> are critical and they're important and i know david and i was drawn to you and and and and and i would venture to guess vice versa is neither one of us are are are shy and i and i'll share something i've thought about on the way over here knowing i was going to see you. Today was was get this <hes> ah everybody so. I don't know a day of 'hello-goodbye. Whatever's gonna lunch barely etc. We know each other from in in in in the parting harding. I'll never forget. We're going to exchange information visit that. So what do you think david does. You take my phone out of my hand. I don't know if you remember this goes on. This and i wonder what the hell he's doing. He goes on he leans in and takes this very cool smug picture of himself that we've all seen him somewhere. He doesn't take a lot of themselves. When you do see him online and social channels he definitely has always looking cool and on on point and it just reminds me of something that we all have but we have to if but it's not your primary nature that you need to tap into it is they reach them took a picture of himself and really put it in his contact information in there i had had it in my phone number. Never lost it since now and everybody else stand around and go oh yeah nine one seven six seven six or things like that but these are small little things and i noticed you and <hes> i noticed you do that. You've always done seven. It was something that made you stand out dramatically dramatically small little nuances that stand out to have big impacts are critical and we all have them. We have to look for i you and i quickly became ringleaders real fast. I think everybody everybody was coming up. Where are we going tonight. Guys yeah that was what a great time. We've had a few occasions but but <hes> yeah a few real standout evenings for real. David certainly differentiates themselves from others and that's one thing i liked about david and disruptive trying to do things differently having and i think that's an amazing one thing to ask you. Eric is how do you the closest thing i've ever known about real estate in new york is of course watching that television listen program selling the orc <hes> so how do you. I don't know if it has any factor in your business whatsoever. But how do you differentiate yourself from from others like what's unique about but you and how you approach your real estate business like how do you <hes> you know. We call it david because of the unique selling proposition. How do you bring that into your business to differentiate yourself yeah and and this is something that <hes> that i was thinking about today as well and how to answer that specific question because i'll tell you what happened here speaking on disruption action <hes> compass is that in a huge way in not to go off on the on the business side of it from the company's perspective but here we went and this was a company that said we're going to step out and do a lot of the things that dave and i have talked about in years prior a lot of the things that differentiating getting yourself from the brokerage that you're at if you're at remax everybody's got the balloon but makes you different and compass embraced that leaned in and that was a branding exercise in marketing and and and when we talk about words that are overused in our market luxuries the most abused word or it probably isn't real estate anywhere what does that word actually mean doesn't mean what most people think it means anymore and that try and that definition always changes as well and so i find myself even today as we're talking thinking about what i'm gonna do next to differentiate myself what happened on the move from from compass was a branding in a team and or personal branding exercise and and <hes> the word logo gets thrown around so i know you guys have done and that <hes> at <hes> the great at <hes>. I always wanted to create a property. I always want to get calgary in there. That's the only reason yeah we it landed. We rebranded across the country yeah. No i know that you did and that's why maybe i pause to think about it but that branding exercise right what what what we did again do that individually and then came to my so i'm like david and i and i and i and i point that him because i guess i'm always talking to the mirror i think when i talked about these things but i'm never satisfied satisfy you know and and it was knicks level from what the rest of the market was doing but it's still wait a minute. No i know that we can right so there's a bit of perfectionism. We have to battle in certain efforts. That's right and you gotta. Stay away from that in certain efforts but there's also a piece of that that you don't let go. You say you know what i don't have to do a lot more effort but i can stand way out if i do x. So to answer the question and we all know now if your compass there's a big push around your brand of your team or if you're an individual primarily segues into the into another conversation about teams didn't used to be teams. Then teams became really <hes> chick. You know everybody was a team but they weren't really team. They didn't do anything that team. Does that have sat around together and call themselves a team and then later got mad moved away but now can differentiate ourselves. We do a couple of things that is. It's it's setting adding that consistency of the of the brand itself what i'm finding is that still in this in this new company that has done everything and disrupted everything that we think about traditionally in real estate <hes> in house marketing in how <hes> engineering <hes> at that'll level. That's not even what everybody's thinking right now. As i say <hes> taking over not disrupting taking over is is more of the work so ready challenge and what what do i do. You have to lean into your personality. I think in some cases you have to go back to your fundamentals and recognize that yeah you think everybody else is doing the same thing that you war but guess what ninety percent of them are not consistent. They might do it once or twice or whatever and so. It's it's the brand itself but it's also being present presence in that brand is well so that when you see that logo and still you with what we deliver and that's our service so the level of service is my. I answer to what we do to differentiate ourselves. Yes everybody gives great service no but there's a lot of detail in there and things that are not difficult to do that. Just take a little bit of thought in advance so consistency authenticity. That's actually what you get with their authenticity. In service i mean being ruled classes. Things will absolutely differentiate you from your competitors and it was not for me personally. I have to tell you yeah yeah. It's about us all looking in the mirror every day and not being lazy and not putting off that phone call. They should take place right now for five more minutes because you just missed or its rhythm baby. Find your flow. We talked about this yesterday as well. We're talking about flow and that's that was another takeaway. <hes> that's critical booking need to read the rise of superman rise of superman. Yeah who rakes verify heard that yeah maybe recommended to you sometime ago. <hes> talks about what you just mentioned which is <hes> flow state being inflow. That book is the rise of superman. <hes> by steven kotler desert rises superman speaking of floor state speaking of flow state <hes> okay what are some tools <music> processes. You used to stay organized. You have an app you used you. Have you have an assistant that keeps you organized any obser- processes the tools you use to organizing a busy place like new york city. Yeah you gotta you gotta you gotta keep me from ryan down rabbit holes on gear and and <hes> <hes> the tech side of things because i'm a gearhead and i love my gadgets <hes>. I'm a photographer as well. That's a whole nother world where you can credibly expensive too and so what has happened with me is has been <hes> fourteen for some time david and somebody would say c._r._m. How many people could you know in two thousand ten and actually new c._r._m. But the acronym stood for what it actually supposed to be probably not very many now of course the of course time and something that i will admit i was heard you mentioned and talked about in the prior podcast it was about <hes> was about <hes> <hes> absent the things that you use in and <hes> it's slipping my head what i was gonna throw in right there but point being is. I can't come down the line and nobody nobody. I remember at corcoran them saying outlook. Yeah that's your c._r._m. Outlets and i wouldn't want us over the computer the computer on the floor and so i i broke out and begin using for instance <hes> the google suite in its earliest days two thousand about five or six <hes> i went to the i._t. Guy and said the only thing i need out of course i'm tired of hearing about this. <hes> jay dry was what they put them. Strive letter with the j. drive with the internet the network drive and it was always down the documents or the thing hang or the information you need it on that network. Dr j. drives down. I'm getting email constantly j. drive. I don't want your j. drive. I don't need is the email that says at corcoran dot con at the end of it was back then that's what i thought yeah just forward that up so i bailed from from that and i remember distinctly when hubs spot became came on the scene. <hes> started talking inbound marketing. Which is all we do now. We think about this by definition. I'm looking outside of real estate going. You guys are just doing the same thing still ahead sending five thousand more postcards out the window with no you know just just listed out the window the no no idea where they're go so real c._r._m. <hes> does a number of things not only keep that contact tracks your activity etc something you can reference. What's that has a comprehensive way to help <hes> david look at my clients because i just got hit by a bus right. That guy's still got close today what happened they still need to see these shows are lined up and someone else to be able to jump in and seamlessly the report. Which is the critical piece for me. This is the thing i wanted to always identify into. The c._r._m. Is critical for that but i challenge everyone to drill down. <hes> give you the example sampling things that are my pet. Peeves in tactfully was a well-known <hes> contact manager in my opinion by definition that touted can say there's a lot of things to call themselves c._r._m. Dozens of them out there and <hes> compass bought contractual meeting a an idea of the go of what competences doing this so integration into contractually is now compass just to write <hes>. Am i using the platform that we are building internally. Yes is what should be an ultimately not yet so i use up spot just to cut to the chase marketing platform. She s and everybody out right down c._m._s. Right down c._r._m. And then go drill until you understand what they mean i will i will say with no a shameless plug and no benefit from up spot at all <hes> that they have the best knowledge base of anything out there. I don't care what country you're in and you can learn a lot about inbound marketing for free as we can with the internet and a lot of areas against nowhere to look about different things whether it be business or whatever in life <hes> but that platform and integration of it the automation of all the things that we're talking about they require a lot of manual will be do we we think about this automate everything you can until you can automate and then put been putting human in place and so trying to get back to those simple things that we both know <hes> in challenge of his offense they can't <hes> that's a good one spike spike not a sponsor but <hes> thanks for the recommendation there <hes> eric is a honk honk or walk. I'm not sure which but <hes> <hes> yeah nice eleven things this is like it gives me a metaphor to new york. You can come to new york and spend your entire life here and never see everything. It's that there's no place now when i say that in the context of a c._r._m. Where there are a lot of things in different class ones out there that can you know pick to to mars and back and do a bunch of things that don't make money or that are so complicated that you're that and i'm the first one i have to have an accountability buddy because i'm a shiny any object i flip a coin men and i'll run chase it right self <hes> i it's a big achilles heel for me and i just say it out loud all the time because i used to be embarrassed by now i just trying to lean in and make sure i have rails that you come a long way since carrier pigeons your stories from when you're using man pony express listen you just on this a little bit. You talked about your early struggles and maybe some hurdles you had. You definitely touched on that. I like asking this this question of people that have been in the business a long time. Maybe not as long as you but they've been in a long time. It's <hes> what's your craziest real estate story. Do you have one. Do you have a crazy easy real estate story man. I got more than one and i'm sure that everybody has more than one. Give me a little bit of <hes> where p._g. On g. p. g. right there on typically. I wanna make sure you get that into your tag lines on the intro on the exit on the podcast because i heard when i heard it the first time you said it on the earlier suggests i said man you gotta get that into the into punch into the ashtray into the punchline. Okay no no rules. No holds barred <hes> another bar art but you know but we won't be. We won't be without classier. I can tell you one that want to jump in my head. I guess because i'm grown men and i'm and i and i do have my kids are now grown wrong except i'm not as old as dave is reporting. I had my very young so i'm super young and i listened areas. You notice you know this message you last week week. Might my daughters were in new york city for the weekend without like totally like once. You got old kids like i'm old. I feel old open. Your kids can go to new york city for a weekend on their own. That makes you feel really old something for about six seconds. 'cause dave is lying. He don't feel old. You don't think old and and <hes> i don't think any of us do and when we're engaged and excited with with lights and what we're doing <hes> just broke. You know that i'm just horse arse yeah i. I'm i'm i'm i'm embracing it my man you know they silver fox and all that kinda i'll just i'll just go down that lane and and and and own it i love it. I love it so crazy. Story was crazy. Story was one showing a place and we had to go up a ladder. We were doing the final walkthrough for for brownstone in a in a well educated attractive <hes> to the degree of celebrity and we just we didn't do the through the place and the woman is real well dressed on a business level but we're talking about business dress skirt above the knee sort of thing and we've got a ladder in a brownstone on the top floor to go to the roof like a straight up metal out of the amount of the wall and i'm not expecting she's going up there by any stretch of the imagination and we've got an engineer with us isn't and <hes> some other people intel and this is sort of the last thing we need to the roof and then we you know whatever she's excited because she wanted. She wanted to go up there. Whatever so it was totally intentional that one was <hes>. We're gonna make sure they're everybody gets to see the sunshine this ladder and so so the should the funniest piece of retelling that story was when she starts to populate ladder and turns back to look down at everybody and say are you guys coming <hes> <hes> ah but on the engineer i had to put his tongue back in his mouth and closes in smack him in the chin but <hes> that one was an unexpected one and that's <hes> you know as i look at it in hindsight was on purpose and i still can't quite figure that out but <hes> people do a lot of crazy crazy things <hes> and there's a there's a lot of the deal of the year we have real estate board of new york. Every year here in the city has that just a year usually has some big crazy story around it and and we could go on all day telling those stories so the latter chronicles with air kerr yep definitely got to be careful. I uh keep the police department nearby mine remember that i remember that the next time i'm doing a walk through where i have to go up a ladder. I'll remember the not story. Absolutely here's a question question for you. I don't know if you've given us any thought but what is contributed contributed what has contributed to your longevity in the business because you've been in business a long time <hes> <hes> you know you've done different from development and new home sales to resell your in manhattan brooklyn. You've done a lot of things in in real estate industry over over the last twenty years what's contributed to your longevity. I think early on the momentum was built <hes> by not not knowing any better. I think it was just simplicity. My thought process early that was to my favor <hes> but i i can tell you ver- longevity now and and and being here today day <hes> i traced directly back to those those that year in that period of time around in and around when i met you david <hes> <hes> <hes> and i would say the distinct without question necessity in your businesses do have <hes> a system understand that system <hes> but also understand that this is a forever thing. We're not taking appeal and we're done. We don't paint the room and we're done. We don't do we don't just come in and sit down on and we're done after one day. We practice every day the people in my because i am <hes> very much aware aware of of myself and and the people for me on two different levels the ones that helped me are the ones that i helped. I'm recognizing in my business specifically in and in recent years re <hes> examining it that when i have someone that's that i say dependent on me by someone that's looking to me. <hes> in motivates me. This is my game when i'm helping somebody else. It's raising my game and i'm i'm sharper. I'm more on tune because i want them to succeed so that's one thing for me personally but at the same the time it's the coaching. It's the it's the the ability to recognize that ego is good that our industry is full of it majority of it not so good yeah right. 'cause everybody says oh. You got a big ego and that's not a compliment most times right. If you don't have a big ego you're not gonna succeed in real estate. I can tell you that right now and you might you can get to make some money. Make a few bucks awesome. Thank you know and and and sort of make your way but we're here. I think the talk about expansion. We're talking about you know massive growth and scaling and these are the things that i had to realize hey david guess what everybody doesn't think like me and i didn't know that <hes> i didn't know that i thought everybody felt the same way that i think. Of course we want to do better do a better job. Make that person's life happier. Yes i wanna make more money and yes. That's a strong component of what makes me tick but if i'm thinking about the pocket while i'm trying to somebody else. I'm not doing a very good job. You know so so for me. It's very important to people in the systems and i need to coach. I need everybody. Everybody needs a coach because i wonder off. I get bored. I love real estate and other things too you know and so there's there's there's a lot there and for me personally. It's the people in the end of the day. Pick one thing i wanted to go somewhere. I'd be my inventory one thing. I picked john picked up if you're taking inventory the turning point in eric's career as well as what's contributed to his longevity is the day that he met david morale. That's what i heard yeah. Basically that's it. If if i didn't meet you you'll be back boy. I got still got some pictures from disneyland. We've got the icon explore fountain pictures eric iconic. I got them all. I got done. We're gonna we're gonna have definitely split you after this <hes> thinking about it so if a new agent came up to just need five minutes of your time sit down for a cup of coffee and one revised. What would you tell them just a couple quick tips for brand new agent quick tips our brand new agents <hes> i think in just about any market go find and not the best agent in the room. Go seek out <hes> the strongest his team and find yourself a place understand who you are. I <hes> and i don't in thankfully again. It goes back to david all the credit. Got it but identifying who you are. What makes you tick. I <hes> we'll we'll we'll part and parcel to your success. <hes> fast fast track is due to join a wealth systemized team with eighteen leader that has to be david merill approved. He's somebody timmy. Team got to be a leader. That's like mind with you and a black <hes> culture. One of the reasons that were accomplished. Now is the ah that try factor. It's culture is at the core of everything here and <hes> it's important for a team and it's important for a new agent because when you're out there by yourself inside your own head in your own echo chamber banging around and looking externally at what the guy next to you or the or the woman across the room or the successful person at the other brokerage just sent out that and you know blast and you're we can sweating bullets because they sent out more email and with it seems like they have more listening than you can even imagine. Those are the things that wouldn't wouldn't they put me into these waste of time headset so <hes> don't be shy asked the question. Find the find the good guys because the good guys will give you everything everything. They've gotten their pockets good giving the shirt off their back because they they know that's not. That's not success. Not the one dollars yeah again. That's that's one of the things we're very proud of it. The greater property group is is the training the coaches in the mentoring brokerage now like we're able to provide that agents work you know being this long in the business eric we have so much that we can give new agents right so run with you know the group you identify within can give you that proper coaching and mentoring beyond just hey you know it's got to be strategic. It's gotta be <hes> you know actionable content as we always talk about the there's the buzzword actionable bull in austin authenticity to too great a words to walk away with because <hes> you can you can get a lot of smoke blown out. You real quick a lot of fast talk. Can you know do this and filling. These blanks will all but a team like a brokerage like yours <hes>. That's that's why. I think that we there's well because we echoing the same things. New york is always feels like it's ten years ahead of the rest of the world and then this guy from where you calgary we've got oil. What is what is in calgary is. What i i mean. I was like wait a minute. I can open the map and figure out where that's at and and but you know you're up in a market that was totally in contrast now. I'm familiar the markets. I'm a californian native. I wasn't always in new york. This is the other end of that spectrum but <hes> no matter where you are you authenticity of what the person's teaching teaching yes this is a._b._c. What we're going to do next not go feel good in. You know go outside and smile on sunshine. Let's let's let's see what's really actionable and that's a critical critical term to hang on right on the back of your hand. You nailed it. You nailed it okay. What does the future look like in new york city and what does the future look like for eric harass while today tomorrow or the next ten years i mean what are we talking about. It's pretty open ended eric. What's what what do we see anything coming in new york. Let's <hes> earth-shattering. <hes> you know any i think well i'll tell you what's happening in the united states wide and it's coming to a theater near you very very soon <hes> and and you're not going to be talking about this as well <hes> this is. This is the overused word that <hes> like you. I'm not a big fan of throwing around. These buzzwords like disruption if we're doing our job if i'm if i'm at the top of my game i'm disrupting something and i think you would agree that then and i saw you coming out of a very he's sort of legacy looking thought process. You used to say real tour. We don't say real tour in new york city because that's another story about the about <hes> about <hes> <hes> real estate board of new york but but a real tour of us to think about <hes> maybe cul-de-sacs and you know and more suburban markets and <hes> you know i they may have <hes> do real estate as a part time job and and those things that it was just sort of make a lotta money you know just kind of going to the grocery store and you know that type of a of a headset and <hes> it's it's really doing things with purpose you know it by design in assists them in and where were we driving arriving with that with that point because we you know what's happening here in new york city is a an evolution of a legacy market that can no longer longer that is fighting tooth and nail to hang on the eighty twenty rule that we're all familiar with is alive and well my friends <hes> and in brief compass didn't come in put a shingle and say hey come and join us. That's not what happened was recruiting nothing but that and it's an and i say that to the land land the plane with this. You're knocking on the door of the top producers in your mark anderson. Come join us because this is what we're going to do differently than everybody. Nobody else does everybody's gonna. Maybe you can come to new york city and i can take you to the top five brokerages. I have friends and that i would consider family at each. One of them and there's not a lot of difference behind. Maybe the 'love is different. It's all it's all luxury. It's all shiny and beauty. Point amazing in new york is amazing. So there's the consumer give a damn whose logos on and <hes> you know on their clothing documents they really don't they really really don't so those realizations what's happening. Here is an acceleration allegation. We have <hes> we have <hes> coined you know what are very very much universal eight principles of entrepreneurial entrepreneurship but the thing that jumped out to me. We know the new york minute is cliche move fast. We're moving fast but what what is fascinating is the evolution that i saw the the past fifteen years and break that down to two or three year seasons those teams that are happening in six months at a time now where tipping point we're living in the future. I know you have some have have had and have some focus on blockchain <hes> and <hes>. I had the good fortune another conversation. We gotta talk about <hes> talk about that. Because because <hes> there are pieces of our industry that are dead man walking one hundred percent couldn't agree more two-day dead man walking <hes> all of all my friends that i love that are in the title business guys snap out of it. You dead men walking. It's gone. It's gone and so in the u._s. And i expect that it'll be similar in canada ended up. There'll be things like that. Go into municipalities and we talk you know argued those things <hes> and i've seen i've seen the light. The reality is going here in the city and the wonderful thing about new york is name it and it's happening here so i'm going to end of the day go up the street to an event to blockchain event the room with fifteen people on unassuming different ages from twenty five to fifty all of them were ten million dollars or more what they're talking about what what's going to crypto currency's what businesses mortgage right behind right behind it and that's a bigger one we think about banks and lawyers and all that not far behind his mortgage and there's there's there's definitely more than i'm not even thinking about them. Yeah times have changed and i feel sometimes when you're talking to agency. You know the average agent the business. When you start talking about the changes that are happening in the industry. They almost look like you have three heads and things are running faster faster than you would have expected because of data and technology the two things that everything everything in this industry and give your head a shake. You don't think that that's coming very very soon. Lots of changes to this industry a lot of changes. What what's the point there. You've got to be ready now now if i'm a new agent i'm just thinking about what you just said to me. If i'm a new agent today it's almost for a moment ago. I wouldn't know you wouldn't be so aware. I'm <music>. I'm up of these things. You know in to make your job for you when i started literally that year people were afraid of email. I'm not putting my information and i'm not putting anything in email right so we're only talking about decade and a half decade. You know so it's listen listen. The people that listen people stay woke like mr eric roth okay. We'll see okay. We're going to wrap it up by going deeper with a couple of questions uh-huh eric that really get to know who you are and the reason why you get to know who you are personally is the way that you answer this next question okay and it's not real estate related or or maybe it is depending on how you answer it. I love this question. I love this question. I really do because it for folks thought. I asked him the last podcast did we ask vincent fists corey. I don't know if we austin this question. I think we should of i think we did. I forget what he said. Oh okay. Here's the question eric if you could have dinner if you could would have dinner with any people in his street pastor present who would it be and why would have been why i'll oh confessed that they cheated because i was listening earlier. You asked us to somebody else and i had some thought about this and i think right now. I may be just because <hes> american politics are at the front of the world and is so much ridiculous nonsense happening <hes> that's blown at us. I think we're a gamma would be the first person i would pick <hes> that would be for a number of different reasons. <hes> use intellect first and foremost is something that i'm gasping where our our our our political medical systems gasping for intelligence right now so you know so he would be the first one because they think he crosses so many so much of the spectrum of what you and i talked walkabout think the reason that we had some gravity to each other as well the person that et cetera there would be one <hes> kobe brian would be the other one. I know that we talk about sports stars and and i wanted to correct about your about you throwing around the goat so easily just because you're you're you're throwing around the u. Thrown around the geo a little loose in my lap and listen listen let loose. We're excited about the the raptors win okay. We were just excited about it. We were right. Why kobe is it's a good picture that he is a goat though he is so so so i wanna correct go just for the audience. Greatest of all time is one so he's he's in the country in the conversation top ten all time goats. There's only one we know who that is and if you say anybody other than m._j. We're gonna hate. You and i are on the same same pigs there. It is m j he is. He's the goat. There's no touch it and i wouldn't i and i want to i want the audience that i told you so about your boy leaving town but that's a different story koby and i'll tell you why because the same piece of personality that that barack obama has delivers differently in cubby i i'm. I'm there before anybody else. He wakes up and i'm gonna last guy out. You cannot work me so i have that in my stuck in my gut right now we talk about sports and get into that thing and go off down the rabbit hole because i'm not a big lebron james fan and i was born a lakers fan when when <hes> i'll date myself basically i was a little kid when kareem abdul-jabbar joined the los angeles lakers a very little kid super super. I didn't understand basketball at that age but it was a big deal because there was this guy that was bigger than life could do something that was unstoppable and it was so that that was my earliest so what kobe and korean can they be on the same at the same dinner table that would be great and <hes> the third one is gonna be <hes> david morales because <hes> he's always doing something as much as now y- ah audience mark my words as much as now he's no one would argue that he's generous <hes> charismatic <hes> stylish and a whole bunch of other adjectives but this is a guy that also has a lot happening in the cards that are close to his chest so anytime you're around or you're considering getting anywhere in the proximity of this guy. He's got something else up with at all times. That's probably better than anybody else is doing so go. <hes> keep a close eye on that guy and for reference prince. I appreciate that eric and for reference. You're on my list. Always i mean i've never had a better time than when i was hanging out with eric we have after we got a lot to be doing that more often here and i'm in with purposes well so so close now i know it's my it's my fault. It's my fault. I nobody's fault. It's nobody's nine. Nobody's fault it just as much mind and that goes back to consistency everybody that should be on my never fail in my business. I should have seen david morrell at least half a dozen more times times in the period of time that we're talking about in the business failure because there's a lot of stuff that happens every single time that you connect with people that are as passionate as you are about what you're doing doing your work one hundred percent. I appreciate that man and we always wrap it up. <hes> we like to do this a book recommendation. I don't know if you're an avid book reader. We kind of are we. We find that in this space and we're talking about successful people in real estate. It's always a book that sometimes identify with and they say that's my go-to book. That's what i'd recommend somebody. That got a big impression on me or made it. You know <hes> change my life in some way. Do you have a book recommendation for the week eric. I do and i and i wanna say in in answering that question that i wanna know what you're getting is roster looks like as well and the networking thing and all the things we're talking about. Today are critical. I'm i'm i'm having a feeling as we wrap up here that a whole bunch of stuff. I don't know that you're doing right now that i wanna talk to you about without going on. The screen of the of the border never split the difference. Oh ooh i love that book so that's one of my top in what i want to say in in behind a that book specifically <hes> is that their books should be in your eyes. I felt my team members. I asked me about books. You should have a roster and you should on that bookshelf. Let's say that it's a dozen books wide once you you should be reading through those and then circling back because each time you pick those up. Let's think about the ones we all know and love <hes> the one thing right <hes> from good to great <hes>. I don't want to blow the blow blow this for other people who may mention some of these books but they're but they're fundamental getting things done these have universal fundamental on the mental the millionaire real estate agent core cornerstone components of what should be up under your business and those books should be on your shelf. You might have read them a he doesn't pick it up and read it again because you're gonna pull something new out every time but never never never split the difference. I like it accord. Did you ever recommendation recommendation this week. I'm going to say it again. I read. I mentioned this one in the last podcast or a couple back but i read it again and it's by chet holmes the ultimate sales machine gene. That book is phenomenal. It's it's bef- he's passed away. Now and the book was written kind of in the early stages of the internet so some of the things he talks about in our antiquated however the principals in that book are outstanding one of it is pigheaded determination discipline and he was partnered with charlie monger burji levinson's abraham the guys rockstar a live in infamy with what he did so the ultimate sales machine love that book fantastic well i have not. I don't recall reading it so i'm running straight out and i feel embarrassed that i don't know so. That's why we do that so they come over titles that you haven't heard of that yeah see. That's the audience because it's a point that i'm i. I came today thinking about all those mistakes that i've made in the times that i i looked to as an expert when i should be asking questions or i should be looking for help. I should be reaching out and <hes> you know you know what. I'm not embarrassed. I haven't read this look. I'm happy to be here and i'm happy that you shared it. That's fantastic you run out.
