The Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation, run by former New York FBI chief Jim Kallstrom and Wall Street executive Richard Torykian. They take no salary, and have few expenses other than their fundraising events. All of the money goes to families of those wounded or killed in the line of duty in the form of scholarships, assistance, etc. Their annual gala featuring the Marine Corps band is a great night for the patriots among us.

Fashion Week for no other reason than it gives me license to wear my Italian-cut suits that are too small on me.

Best Gym/Athletic Facility:
The track on the East River between 14th Street and Houston. It’s great for wind sprints and pull-ups. Barring lots of snow, I’m there at least three days a week doing the following routine: I jog there from my apartment in Stuy town (one mile); do 18 sets of pull-ups (I try for 30 consecutively on the first set); 18 sets of push ups (I try for 50 consecutively on the first set) and another 18 sets of pull-ups. Then I move on to two sets of sit-ups; and finally, five 50-yard dashes; then I jog home (one mile).
