Help Our Visitors!

Hello Everybody!

We get lots of questions we can't answer ourselves. So we have decided to post some of the questions we get from our visitors on this page. If you can help answer some of these questions, please E-mail us a response, and we will contact the person asking the question, and send them your response. At this point we don't want to post E-mail addresses, to protect our visitors from Spam E-mail sights. We'll try this out, and see how it works. We can even post the responses on this site for everyone's benefit. To make it easy for us, please copy the original question, or reference the Q# in your E-mail response. Thanks for your help!

Q004: Dear Sirs, We are a group of artists from Liverpool / England, and are looking for artists in New York to exchange with. (ideas and exhibitions) - particularly artists who also work for a museum or art gallery, as we do (The Tate in our case!) I wasn't quite sure which area to go to for help - so was just hoping you could point us in the right direction!.

It would be a particularly favourable idea at the moment, as New York will be twinning with Liverpool next year, and it would be nice to stage an event to commemorate it! Yours sincerely, Wendy Williams. E-mail us a response!

Q010: Hi I have been trying very hard to locate a specific Hotel there in New York, I had a friend tell me about it once and I had looked it up on the internet, but that was quite a while back and I have no way to locate that friend. I do not know the name of this hotel but I was hoping that if I described it to some one from New York they would know what I am talking about. It is an old hotel built on a private lake on the top of a mountain, it very much reminded me of an old castle and I remember that there were extensive gardens and trails if memory serves the gardens were award winning. If this sounds familiar to you I would appreciate any clue you could give me. Thank you very much, I would like to find this place as my fiancée loves New York and I would like to take her there for our honeymoon. I live in California and have never been there so I really have no clue! Thanks. Jeffery Galpin. E-mail us a response!
