Who is SA-NY?
Loyal readers…while we have had the pleasure of getting to know you a bit over the last few months of our blog, it occurs to us that you may not know who we are. Well, that ends today. Here’s a little snapshot of the team known as Shackman Associates New York…curtains please…
**The SA-NY offices are truly a mixed bag of backgrounds and cultures. While all of us consider ourselves New Yorkers, we hail from: Johannesburg, South Africa; The Bronx; Barcelona, Spain; Port chester, New York; Paris, France; Mount Kisco, New York; Fond du Lac, Wisconsin; Nazareth, Pennsylvania; and Cape May, New Jersey.
**25% of the SA-NY staff considers Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream their favorite. 100% of the staff will eat whatever ice cream is brought to the office, regardless of flavor.
**Some of our favorite New York City locales include: Grand Central Station, The Museum of the City of New York, The Great Lawn of Central Park, The Statue of Liberty, Rock Center Ice Rink, the park at Gracie Mansion, The Frick, Ellis Island, and the Queens Museum.
**The SA-NY team has several mascots, who provide critical “background support” to the team, including: 3 dogs, 4 cats, and 1 extremely supportive houseplant, who hangs on our every word.
**Our heroes include: Our moms and dads, Mayor Bloomberg, the NYPD, the ASPCA and the FDNY. None of them wear capes, but we think that they are super anyway.
**In true New York fashion, 22% of us think that any shade of black will do for any occasion. Other favorite colors? Red (33%), blue (33%), and orange (12%).
**Our favorite blog is…seriously? Do you even need to ask?
