Sam Roberts Introduces You To A New York You Never Knew

Sam Roberts is celebrating the 400th anniversary of New York City with  a new book called “A History of New York in 27 Buildings.”  Sam brings to light the brilliant architecture, remarkable history, and bright future of the greatest city in the world.  Sam looks at Grand Central Terminal, Empire State Building, and St. Paul’s Chapel. Other structures in his book show how municipal politics  aka corruption — impacted the rise of the department store, live theater and public housing. The book isn’t really about design, but how occupants have used these buildings over the years.   And you’ll learn why a spice shop on Lexington Ave is so important to US Presidential history. 

Sam Roberts is one of the New York Times best known journalists. He has worked there for decades. He is also the author of several books and has a major role in the new Roy Cohn documentary.  Sam interviewed Roy several times in the 1970’s and 80’s.  He learned a great deal about the Trump mentor and shares those insights during the film and with us on Lying on The Beach.  Join us.

It’s NEVER Too Late To Re-Invent Your Life

Loren Pomerantz is living the life so many of us dream of. At the age of 50, this New Yorker decided to give herself a gift that would change her life forever. She joined a travel network called “Remote Year” that allows you to connect with other professionals who together work and live like locals from four to 12 months in exciting cities around the world. 

Loren was at least 20 years older than most but that didn’t stop her blending into the group who were made up of people who live in different parts of the world and have jobs that allow them to work remotely in the digital age. Loren is a successful public relations agent who represents companies in a variety of fields.

Most of us can’t imagine what it would be like to experience the life Loren led two years ago. She is with us today to tell us all about it and how she has maintained this lifestyle on her own since the Remote Year ended. We are catching up with Loren in Stockholm where her evening is now our afternoon. Welcome Loren to Lying on the Beach.
