Have you ever noticed how some people can walk into a room and everyone's attention is drawn towards them? Or when an individual speaks, most everyone stops to listen?

It's called charisma, and either you've either got it or you don't. But for those who "don't, there's still hope.

Of course judging whether a person has charisma is all in the eye of the beholder, and millions of television viewers seem to agree that Judge Judy Sheindlin has it is spades. The former stay-at-home mom and Bronx family court prosecutor made the right decision when she made the move to the bench.

Her "Judge Judy" program is ruling the airwaves as the No. 1 syndicated show on television. Did you know that Judge Judy used to live on City Island, NY? It appears that Andy Garcia, who produced the film "City Island" is not the only personality with charisma, who has truly enjoyed our small piece of NYC.
