Earlier This Month in The New York Times

Yesterday, thanks to a tip from a reader, Gossips linked to a letter to the editor in The New York Times written by Arthur T. Brooks. It was later brought to my attention that earlier in the month another letter to the editor from a Gossips reader had appeared in The New Times. This letter, written in response to an article on how the Bloomberg administration was sprucing up Gracie Mansion for the next mayor of New York City, was from Joan K. Davidson: "Restoring Gracie Mansion." Davidson chaired the Gracie Mansion Conservancy in the early 1980s, which led the effort to renovate the house and restore the grounds of the official residence of the mayor of New York.

    . Joan K. Davidson is one of my living heroes. What a remarkable person .NYC and Hudson Valley have been so fortunate to have her as such a strong ally for historic preservation,the arts.and the environment., especially our Hudson River., to name a few.
