South Forker Georgina Bloomberg, Amanda Hearst and Kimberly Ovitz joined the Humane Society of the United States at a benefit for Friends of Finn, an anti-puppy-mill organization, last Saturday at The Surf Lodge in Montauk.
Georgina Bloomberg, who recently celebrated her 30th birthday on daddy Bloomberg’s yacht in Florida, is expecting her first child with boyfriend Ramiro Quintana, a professional equestrian (and not so pro yachtsman). The baby will be New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s first grandchild, and it’s due this winter, right around the time he leaves his mayoral post.
In the meantime, Mayor Bloomberg is keeping busy and continuing to work for his city. He announced Wednesday that New York City just secured its own geographic top-level internet domain— .nyc —which will allow New Yorkers and visiting tourists to easily find local businesses, services and information online. The .nyc address will identify businesses or individuals as located in New York City, and identify products and organizations that serve the New York City community.
“Having our own unique, top-level domain – .nyc – puts New York City at the forefront of the digital landscape and creates new opportunities for our small businesses,” Mayor Bloomberg said. “They’ll now be able to identify themselves as connected to New York City, one of the world’s strongest and most prestigious brands.”
Also on Wednesday, Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly presided over a graduation ceremony for 781 new city police officers at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The class completed six months of intensive Police Academy training and now the rookies will be paired with experienced supervisors and deployed to patrol higher-crime neighborhoods.
Their first major citywide deployment for the rookie class is the Fourth of July, including the Macy’s fireworks display on Manhattan’s west side.
