Hip Urban Oasis on Lower East Side

Posted on January 19, 2016

image I may be a life-long loyal Californian, but I love New York. I just returned from speaking at the New York Times Travel show for the 9th year and Julie and I made sure to stay at the Hotel on Rivington In New York’s Lower Eastside—one of Manhattan’s last authentic neighborhoods. It’s a cool, hip hotel and a fascinating historic neighborhood. In this latest podcast I speak with general manager, Daniel Tenant, about the hotel and share some great neighborhood discoveries on my latest podcast. For more on the Hotel on Rivington go to HotelonRivington.com or call 212-475-2600. For information on all of the unique, quality boutique properties under the House of Kooser umbrella go to HouseofKooser.com.

Christmas Smoke

Posted on December 25, 2015


It’s holiday time and at this time of year Joseph’s childhood memories take him back to his grandparents home in Miami, Florida. Cuban immigrants, they celebrated a traditional “Noche Buena” with roast pork, red wine, black beans, white rice, yucca, plantains and, in his grandfather’s case, a long, dark, fat Cuban cigar. Joseph’s grandfather, Carlos, was a cigar maker from Pinar de Rios, Cuba.  Just in time for Christmas, Joseph tells his “Christmas Story” in this moving and evocative pod cast.

Eastern European River Cruise with Emerald Waterways

Posted on October 11, 2015

In July we shot the last episode of Season 8 of Joseph Rosendo’s Travelscope. Although I’ve never been a big fan of big ship cruising, it’s a completely different experience when you’re on a small, intimate vessel.  So, the fifteen shows in our latest season (107 shows and counting) was on an Emerald Waterways Eastern European river cruise.

It always amazes me everything they can get aboard these river ships. The Emerald Dawn has a heated swimming poo,l with a view – it has a retractable roof – and when they put the floor over it, it’s used for Movie Nights or private functions.  Surprisingly, they even squeeze in a wellness center where you can work out, get a massage or get your hair done. If you want more exercise, bikes are available for use free of charge and on the sun deck there’s a walking track, a putting green and an oversized Tic, Tack, Toe board.

One thing everyone loves about cruising is the all-inclusive aspect. Yet, some ships are more inclusive than others. For the luxury, Emerald Waterways cruises are very reasonably priced and include an excursion in every port, all meals, wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner, and something few lines include, gratuities, both on and off the ship.

To find out more about River Cruising I met with general manager, Elizabeth Sadler, in the pool area. For more on Emerald Waterways, go to EmeraldWaterways.com.
