1. Congratulations to all the 2013 Peabody winners, including 92Y guests Marina Abramovic, Bryant Gumbel, and Leonard Lopate, who has been a friend of 92Y for over 20 years. 
Here’s the full video from our Relevant Octogenarians panel in September of last year, when Mr. Lopate moderated a panel that included Muriel Siebert, Mayor Ed Koch, Paul Volcker, George J. Mitchell, and Pete Peterson.

  2. Chuck Hagel on Iraq, at 92Y in 2008: ”If I had to vote again on that, I’d vote no.”

    From the Washington Post, here’s more on Hagel: Why Republicans don’t trust Chuck Hagel — in 5 easy steps. And from National Journal: 6 Reasons Obama Chose Chuck Hagel.

  3. Our colleague took this great Instagram photo of Julianna Moore and Leonard Lopate at 92nd Street Y last night that we wanted to share with our 92Y Tumblr readers. 

Maybe we should start a photo album online of 92Y guests snapped in an Instagram photo? Next in the series could be Hugh Jackman and special guest Shawn Levy, here  tonight as part of Annette Insdorf’s Reel Pieces series.

  4. Patti LuPone

    Tony-winning actress Patti LuPone was interviewed in Time Out New York last year, and informed us she was confused about the changes in Times Sqaure:
    TONY: What is the biggest thing that’s happened to the city in the past 13 years?

    Patti LuPone: What the hell are they doing to Times Square? This is my question. Is it a theme park? Is it a walking district? Is it a pedicab-carriage district? Is it a strip mall? Frankly, I wish they would go back to the fact that this is the theater district, and allow it to be the theater district. Enough with the MTV and the Hard Rock Cafe. I so preferred it when my life was in danger walking the streets of Times Square. I would rather have a sex shop than an Applebee’s.

    When TONY asked her to complete the sentence, “New York is…” she responded: “…my hometown. My workplace. My breath. My craft. My culture. My education. A lot of my fears. My blood and soul.”

    Want to know a secret? That kind of made us wish Patti LuPone was our mom.

    On Feb 14, Patti LuPone and another New York icon, WNYC’s Leonard Lopate, will be here for The Broadway Life, a discussion of her illustrious career as a performer and her roles both onstage and off. Purchase tickets here.
