What’s in a name? Be it Montague or Capulet, it’s unlikely that either side would question the sweet smell of a successful Tisch.

Whether one is an art student in NYU,

a duck waddling through Central Park’s Children’s zoo,

a man with a business plan,

or simply Sam the simpering NY Giants fan,

even Dr. Seuss would have had to admit that as philanthropists go “no former performer’s performed this performance.” But I have not come to bury a legacy under sycophancy but to praise Jonathan, a distinguished Tisch family member, and to partake in his most recent adventure.
