92Y Chief Sol Adler Fired Over Affair

The longtime executive director of New York’s 92nd Street Y, Sol Adler, was fired after revelations that he had a long-term affair with an assistant.

Adler, according to the New York Daily News, had an extramarital affair with Catherine Marto, the Manhattan Jewish community center’s liaison for board and donor relations.

Marto also was fired after the Y deemed that she provided unsatisfactory answers to an investigation of her son-in-law, Sal Taddeo, a former Y employee who allegedly received kickbacks from Y vendors while working there.

Adler had served as executive director of the Y since 1988 and had started working there in 1978. Deputy Executive Director Henry Timms will take over for Adler while the Y searches for a replacement.
