The Harlem Line: Lessons Learned Along the Way

In this detailed memoir, White Plains-based Waynett A. Sobers chronicles impactful life events, including their geographical location, many of which had proximity to Metro-North’s Harlem Line, hence the memoir’s title. 

Sobers details various stages of his professional life, which include his status as a lieutenant in the US Navy, meteorologist and technical specialist for the US Weather Bureau, executive positions at the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation and Black Enterprise, and as an adjunct professor at Mercy College and the Westchester Business Institute.

In the text, Sobers’ heartfelt thoughts of love, life, and family are juxtaposed with anecdotes that go back to growing up in the Bronx before the civil rights movement; the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis, when he worked for the Commander Fleet Air Mediterranean in Naples, Italy; and raising his family in Chappaqua. Sobers provides his sincere perspective in this personal narrative, while explaining lessons learned through challenges and obstacles he faced on his path to success.
