From the Editor

Of Faces, Fractures and Photos



Photograph by Bob Capazzo

Welcome to 2006, and as usual, to start the year out right, our January issue focuses on health and fitness.

Jane Kendall’s piece on Greenwich resident Dr. Darrick Antell, an eminent plastic surgeon in New York, will be an eye-opener to many of us, especially smokers and sun worshippers. One of Rick’s talents — it landed him on Good Morning America — is matching up identical twins whose lifestyle choices have left them with very unidentical faces. For the feature on sports medicine, writer Jim Motavalli interviewed Greenwich experts Russell Warren, the Giants’ team physician; Gloria Cohen, team physician for Columbia University; Seth Miller, medical consultant to the Mets; and Paul Sethi, Greenwich High School’s team physician. With ten million sports injuries treated each year in our country, sports medicine is a rapidly growing field.

For a change of pace, we look behind the scenes at what author Bob Spitz discovered during the eight long years it took him to write his hot new biography of the Beatles. Did you know that John Lennon and Yoko seriously house-hunted in Greenwich? Wonder what that would have done to our peoplescape.

You’ll notice that we’re adding a “What’s New Around the House” page to our popular “What’s New” section and that we’re introducing a monthly “House Call” department — both in response to your requests for more on home design. Do check them out.

We thank the amateur photographers who sent in such wonderful pictures for our annual Greenwich People and Places contest. You made it tough on us judges.

Now, more about judges. There’s big big news at Moffly Publications. Our sister publication, Westport Magazine, has just been named one of the nation’s top three regional magazines in our category (under 250,000 circulation) in Folio magazine’s Eddie Awards. The contest for excellence in journalism drew 1,600 entries, and we were up against publications with ten times our budget. Even so, we got the bronze, with the gold and silver going respectively to Indianapolis Monthly and a major southern magazine called Portico. Like Greenwich and our New Canaan-Darien magazines, Westport deals with a wide range of subjects of interest to its sophisticated readership — from teen drinking to decorating to humor and civic matters. Westport’s guiding light, Editor Chris Hodenfield, who applauds the work of Art Director Amy Vischio, says it was a great day for the magazine when he, Executive Editor Cristin Marandino, and Publisher Gabriella Mays went into New York to pick up their prize at the Hilton. “Our readers are among the savviest folks in America,” he points out, “and we’re just trying to put out a magazine that inspires us all.”

Congratulations to Hod and his team — and Happy New Year to you all.
