I HAD A WIN-WIN-WIN IDEA…
Last week, I got a call from a reader who wondered if I had a classified-ad section because he was looking to sell a dining-room table. The week before, a shop emailed saying it’s hiring, in case I was in the mood to mention it. A month ago, a reader emailed because she was hoping to sublet her apartment for two years while she moved somewhere free of IHOPs. Adding classifieds doesn’t make sense for various reasons—not least of all my lack of interest in tracking down small amounts of cash—but I don’t like not being able to help people. Seriously! So I had an idea: If you want to run what would really be a classified ad—a line or two of text, to run once, at my discretion (probably in a Seen & Heard round-up)—send an email to email@example.com with the text, your publishable contact info, and an image (only if relevant!). And promise me you’ll give $10 to the Friends of Hudson River Park. I reserve the right to decide what qualifies for this deal. If for some reason you can’t abide the Friends of Hudson River Park, we can talk about a substitute charity, but not if it’s for Herman Cain’s 2016 presidential campaign. P.S. Dining-table reader: You can have one for free because you inspired this idea.
