As New York continues to suffer through the virus, NKBA Manhattan wishes safety to our members, our community and the rest of the city, surrounding area, the country and the world. Our immediate world has changed, we have lost loved ones, our businesses are closed for the most part, many of our friends have lost jobs and we are concerned not only for our health but also the economy. 

We look forward to a time when we can get together and want to be a resource for the rebound when it ha...

Dear Members,

Life has sure changed since our last CEU meeting at Lineadecor in February.

Let's use our monthly newsletter and share what we are up to, what new skills we might have acquired and how we are all coping. Here are my thoughts:

  • My proudest accomplishment to date: I have convinced myself to use my previously unused PELOTON bike daily—well, Monday to Friday and only 10 minutes! I don’t want to overdo it. Oh, and to compensate I stay in bed until 10 am every day now…My cat is very gra...
