Somehow, our rotation for Gothamist Interviews often happens at the worst possible time. Take this week: I have to move on Wednesday. I'm trying to pack-up my apartment which hasn't gone through this packing/moving/tossing old stuff process in five years. I still need to change my addresses, turn-off utilities, and hire movers. Ugh. Point being: don't expect a lot from me this week.
Other than a few interviews though, and I say a few because we wound-up doing only three this week, the first which is up today and particularly timely. If you live in New York, hopefully you've followed the recommendation of the book "100 Things To Do Before You Die" and participated in, or at least attended, the annual New York's Village Halloween Parade. On Friday I chatted with Jeanne Fleming, the Artistic and Producing Director of the parade, which will celebrate its 32nd edition tonight. Jeanne has been running the parade for the past 23 years, and if you ever thought that somehow two million people just came together and started marching -- well, that's kind of how it started, but it sure hasn't been like that for a while!
