GordonRamseyKitchenNightmaresThe senior casting producer for Fox TV's show "Kitchen Nightmares" starring Gordon Ramsay has asked Talk of the Sound to spread the word among our readers that Gordon is looking for restaurants that need Gordon's Help. Gordon is looking for restaurants that have a great location but are unable to bring in the customers, restaurants that are running in the red.

You can nominate any restaurant in the Westchester area but, of course, this is Talk of the Sound, so we are hoping to help some New Rochelle restaurant make the cut. How to submit a nomination after the jump.

Send the name of the restaurant and location to [email protected]. If you are nominating your own restaurant include your name, contact info, name of your restaurant, where you are located, type of cuisine you serve, how many seats you have, how long you have been open, photos or website if available.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: Tell Gordon why you need his help. The more information the better.

People, Architecture & Magnet School Make Glenwood Lake A Prime New Rochelle Location

Recently, when the host of WNYC's "New Sounds" radio show made casual reference to Derek Bermel, a world-class composer, clarinetist, conductor and New Rochelle native, my fond memories of the Glenwood Lake neighborhood in New Rochelle, where Bermel grew up and where I lived for a decade, got me reminiscing.

Glenwood Lake is one of the best neighborhoods in New Rochelle in which to live. It is conveniently located in the heart of the city yet on the border of Pelham, making it a very easy and pleasant walk to the Pelham train station. It also has easy access to the Hutch and I-95.

Glenwood Lake is a mini-nature preserve. The lake from which the neighborhood derives its name is a magnet for a wide-assortment of ducks, herons, the occasional swan or two, and many other birds.
