We Salute Our New York Women Around Town for 2010

Once again in 2010, we had the privilege of writing about women who have inspired us. From the year’s first woman, Linda Fairstein, to the last, Vicki Abelson (on our front page today), our Woman Around Town profiles have focused on women of all ages, backgrounds, and professions. Here, we bring together a year’s worth of our Women Around Town. (Make sure you click through all three pages to access all the photos).

While some of these women are famous, others are not household names, but well known to many in their communities. Each woman is an inspiration! If you missed any of their stories, you can still read about them on the site. Want to learn more about a specific Woman Around Town? Type in her name in the search box at the top of our opening page. And if you know of a woman we should be writing about in 2011, please let us know. You can e-mail us at mailto:WATexplorer@gmail.com.

Thanks and congratulations to all our 2010 Women Around Town!
