Last MYEP Update 2018

Hey everyone, it's Paola. This is my last week with the Mayor's Youth Employment Program and the DSSD! This week, I was able to work on newsletter articles for future retailers in Stamford Downtown. I also participated in an exciting walk through where I got to meet several small business owners and get an inside look on what it's like to operate downtown. Finally, I interviewed the Vice President of Operations here at the DSSD, where I was inspired by his strive to advance Stamford Downtown. Before my internship, I never realized all of the different projects and efforts that go in to our Downtown district. There are so many different people and pieces working together to make Stamford Downtown so clean, efficient, and fun! Although I am excited to begin college, I will definitely miss my time here at the DSSD where I learned about the correlation between a happy community and a great Downtown. Thank you to everyone featured in this collage who made this last month so great!

MYEP Intern Update #2

     

Hi everyone, it’s Paola again. This week has been very busy! I have been working on all the materials for the upcoming summer restaurant week. Did you know that there are so many different types of foods and restaurants to try in downtown Stamford? A perk of this internship is being able to see everything downtown has to offer between restaurants, parks, and events; I am getting a glimpse of it all. One of last week’s highlights included seeing the restaurants participating in restaurant week, and when I was able to sit in with the team who designs the marketing materials. It was cool to see a graphic designer take information about the event and make it into an eye-catching poster. I also was able to put together some graphs and numbers for the ARTWALK summary report which proved to be very useful.  Working here is really interesting and fast paced-as there is always something going on between preparing for Alive@Five or the various meetings that take place on a day to day basis. I like how everyone takes on a variety of tasks and helps each other out with projects; it makes for a really fun job!  #stamforddowntown

Mayors intern (MYEP) corner....


Meet Paola!
"Hi, my name is Paola. I am a recent Westhill graduate and the new mayor’s youth employment intern at the DSSD! I’ve made lots of new connections in the office; everyone is so kind and welcoming. Being a business student, I am excited to get my feet wet in the world of marketing and business development. Over the past week, I have been working on gathering data for events like ARTWALK which was a huge success, lots of people left positive feedback. I’ve also been able to sit in meetings for the annual Alive@Five concert series, where I am getting a behind-the-scenes look of the event. On Wednesday I was able to take a field trip to West Hartford with my supervisor and learn about retail development in other communities. Needless to say, I am looking forward to the next month with the DSSD!"



Stay tuned for the next Intern corner.

Blog share Stamford Advocate: Stamford theater screens ‘Itch’ as part of Monroe celebration


The 1955 Marilyn Monroe comedy “The Seven Year Itch” is getting a special screening at the Avon Theatre. (Avon Theatre, 272 Bedford St., Stamford. Thursday, June 7 at 7:30 p.m.)

The movie is part of Stamford’s celebration of the new public art exhibit “Timeless - The Works of Seward Johnson”, which includes a 26-feet tall sculpture on Monroe in her iconic white summer dress in the Billy Wilder comedy. Dozens of pieces by Johnson are on view in downtown Stamford through August.


The iconic white dress is the outfit that gets blown up in a suggestive way when when the Monroe character in the movie stands on a subway grate to cool off during a heatwave.

“The Seven Year Itch” is directed by Billy Wilder who would go on to collaborate with Monroe on another of her most famous films, the 1959 “Some Like It Hot.”


George Axelrod wrote the script based on his hit Broadway play about a married man (Tom Ewell) on his own in New York City while his wife spends the summer in a mountain resort that he only visits on weekends. Monroe is the single woman who moves in downstairs and puts her neighbor’s fidelity to the test.
The subway grate sequence became instantly famous when Monroe’s then-husband Joe DiMaggio reportedly objected to the way his wife was exposed. The sports star’s aggravation grew when a photo from that scene became the movie’s poster art.

Avon Theatre, 272 Bedford St., Stamford. Thursday, June 7 at 7:30 p.m. $13-$8. 203-967-3660#stamforddowntown
