Who are the men you love (historical or otherwise)

 “Well, this is an easy question to answer because this man will always be the man that I love the most and that is my father, Seth Bader.  His kind heart, incredible work ethic and focus on family values are all things that I strive to keep with me as I venture into adulthood.  I have incredible respect and admiration for how he was able to balance being a hands-on, involved and loving father while running his own law firm since he was only 28.”

Public Relations/sales coordinator, The Ritz-Carlton Westchester, New York City resident


“John Legend has a good heart and good meaning with his lyrics. He is a great musician, and you can really tell from his interviews and his performances that he’s a true gentleman. He represents himself well.”

Jessica Carrol

General Manager, Blackbear Saloon in White Plains, Thornwood resident


“Ricky Martin. He’s secure of his sexuality. He’s a father of two children and an excellent dancer.”

“James Taylor for his sexiness, sensitivity and sound I never tire of. William Shakespeare for his genius with the English language. Jon Stewart for his intelligence and original humor. Colin Firth for his charm, ability to play diverse roles and his activism in African causes. Adalai Stevenson for his eloquence, liberal beliefs and guts. Too bad he’s not around now. They’re all either cute, funny or brilliant – and some are a little of each.  And, of course, there’s my husband who has it all!”

Jill Gordon

Artist, Westport resident


“Well… let’s see. I’ve always been fascinated by Mahatma Gandhi. I remember seeing the movie staring Sir Ben Kingsley as a young girl and was devastated to know that he got killed for expressing his beliefs — love and kindness. Later on in life, I came upon one of his most powerful quotes: ‘An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.’ He wanted all of us to live in a loving and peaceful world and strive to accomplish this. I follow that quote to this day and hope that some day we will all be able to share that kindness and love. For the present man, I love and admire my father, John Hager.”

“I like Chris Hemsworth. He’s so attractive, and he’s really manly. Plus, anyone who can play a superhero that well, there’s something to be said for that.”

Alex Harris

Server, Blackbear Saloon in White Plains, Katonah resident


“My father and my two older brothers are amazing men. They have set the bar pretty high and influence many of the relationships I have with other men in both my business and social life. If Wikipedia had a category for my family, the description would read: ‘Kind, generous, loving, humorous and wonderful dinner and movie companions.’”

Linda Kavanagh

Owner, MaxEx Public Relations L.L.C. in Stamford, Stamford resident


“James Dean. Because he’s the classic movie star that died too young. And Roger Federer because he is the greatest tennis player of all time. I just love him. It’s a combination of his personality, the fact that he’s so modest. He helps out so many charities and always gives back. He’s just gorgeous inside and out.”

Julie McColl

Bartender, Elements Food and Spirits in White Plains, Yonkers resident


“President Obama. I love him for the way he speaks. It doesn’t matter what he says, he can speak his way out of anything. I just like his personality. For looks, I like Paul Walker. He kills me with those eyes. I love him.”

Chanel Nichols

Teller, Wells Fargo in White Plains, White Plains resident


“Ryan Gosling. He just moved to Bedford hills. I like those types of bad boys. On the other side, I feel like I should say an intelligent man, like Shakespeare. He writes love sonnets to girls, what else could you want.”

Lisa Summers

Teacher, Bronx school district, White Plains resident
