back to 1892, operations on the current campus began with

was located on the campus from 1949 to 1957

Current Exhibition-Imbedded
GalleryBar and Salon Ciel presents "Imbedded"
With this exhibition, Salon Ciel sent a challenge to circles of
emerging artists around town: reinvent your landscape by depicting
and prying loose its static elements. The extraction itself activates;
the re-presenting of fixed ideas changes their meaning, or at least,
reminds us that they are here. With us. Still.

The Hudson Valley is in a state of accelerated renewal. Considering most of this
pristine region is within a few hours of NYC and will work with most any budget, you
will have no excuse but to pamper yourself! Whether you go by Metro North railroad
(, and/or hop on your bike when you arrive, you will find so much
to do so close to home. For a day trip or a weekend getaway, the Hudson Valley is the
place to be!
In today’s stressful times, it is good to know you can get away, if even for the day, to
enjoy the splendor of the seasons.
Spring is my favorite time of year upstate New York. Watching the leaves change,
picking a flower or an apple..
In the “big apple?” Nothing like it!

Diaries Of A Waitress by John Sebastian

Part One:

His arms were short, his teeth were sharp, he sat there at table 1
with a crazy look in his eyes and smiled at me with a half cocked glazed
stare that made me think of movies I had seen about
murder and the occult.

Thyroid disorders are extremely common in the U.S., with over 20 million people

common, occurring twice as often in women.

Forgive For Your Own Sake

By:  Nina Mistier

When we think of forgiveness, we think we are letting someone who hurt or
disappointed us off the hook.  The reality is that by forgiving them we are letting
ourselves off the hook.  Think about the emotional, physical and intellectual energy
that goes into holding a grudge; it takes a lot less energy
to let it go and be happy.

My Dinner With Michael

It’s two minutes past midnight on a Friday at the Bowery Bar. I’ve just
stepped out of a cab and I’m flanked by two of the most outrageous
transsexuals in the world (or the New York club scene, at least). Amanda,
or A-Man-Duh as she liked to pronounce it and Olestra Lucille Stools.
Amanda resembles a risen from the crypt Marilyn, only with much puffier
lips, while Olestra prefers a

“Express Your Love Everyday”

By:  Nina Mistier

Love is a powerful emotion; it transmits amazingly positive messages
throughout your body, along with happy chemicals which trigger happiness,
health and a sense of well being.  When we feel these things, more of it is
drawn to us.  The classic example is when a single person finds love and
feels so good being in this loving relationship, all of a sudden everyone is
drawn to him/her.  They always say “where was everyone before the
relationship”?  The reason for this sudden draw is that person is now giving
off love, confidence and happiness which draws more of it to him/her.  Before
the relationship he/she may have felt lonely, sad, unhappy or unloved which
was also
being drawn to him/her.
