John Lennon Art On Display in SoHo



Whether you loved John Lennon, you love art, or you just want to be part of the latest thing to hit SoHo, get to 72 Green Street soon. For what would have been John Lennon’s 73rd birthday, an exhibition is being showcased there of his drawings.

It includes 100 drawings and song writing that he created between 1964 and 1980 and includes a wide range of expressions.

As Peter Haskell of WCBS880 explained, “The nature of his drawings are pretty simple for the most part, cartoonish almost. Very, very cool stuff with some amazing history.”

The suggested donation for entering is $3 and all proceeds will benefit a nonprofit group that offers meals to homebound elderly people in New York. As Citymeals-on-Wheels executive director Beth Shapiro said, “I’m hoping that we reach $20,000, which is about what we did last year and it’s huge for us. Every meal that we deliver is $6.42, $20,000 goes a long way.”

All of the works in the show are available to be purchased. The show is presented by Yoko Ono, Bag One Arts and Legacy Fine Arts and Productions.

IDT Energy CEO gives Tips for Energy Conservation

Recently, a local New York blog interviewed Geoff Rochwarger, IDT Energy CEO. They supply natural gas and electricity to homes and businesses in NY, NJ, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Illinois. As a native New Yorker and energy industry insider, Mr. Rochwarger can give the rest of us insights about energy consumption as the winter approaches.

When asked how New Yorkers can conserve energy, Mr. Rochwarger had a number of suggestions. As he said,

“Think long term, and don’t hesitate to invest in new appliances. Newer appliances are much more energy efficient.  Older models use quite a bit more energy in the home and can be very costly to operate….make sure to set your air conditioning thermostat and timers to coincide with your schedule. There are a number of smart, learning thermostats like Nest, which learn your schedule and can be controlled from your mobile phone.”

When asked about recent projects that would be of interest to readers, the IDT CEO explained that “IDT Energy recently introduced a Green electric supply option that is 100% generated from renewable resources like running water, wind, solar and biomass, and is matched with renewable energy certificates. IDT Energy Green Electric is available in New York and all of the states we serve.”
