It’s been nearly a decade since The Fabulous Beekman Boys first made their appearance on TV screens.
To be honest we were neither “fabulous” nor “boys” at the time the show aired, but it made for a catchy title. And, honestly, we’ve always been a little embarrassed by it.
So much time has passed, and so many more people these days seem to know us as the ‘founders of Beekman 1802’ rather than the stars of a defunct reality TV show.
“What’s a Beekman Boy?” they ask when they hear someone make that reference.
When people reply they get various bits of the detail right (a lot has happened since then!), but there are certain words that almost every single person says no matter how long they’ve been part of the Neighborhood.
And they all seem to point back to what has become our motto:
Help your neighbor.
So perhaps that is what defines a “Beekman Boy”. It’s not about age. It’s not even about gender.
It’s the TYPE of person you are, and you should be proud of it.
It’s fabulous after all.
