    June 13 Picnicked on The Great lawn in central Park to the music of The New York Philharmonic led by James Gaffigan. Great program with spectacular fireworks after the concert. The concert included two pieces composed by students from its education program — remarkable works (Bernstein style) from composers  11 and 12 years old respectively! They took their bows from the stage!

    June 20 The forecast rain didn’t happen so, having lined up for senior tickets in the morning, we were able to see an uninterrupted ‘Othello” in Central Park last night. The set and costumes were magnificent and the actors did their best but the direction gave  a somewhat bland production. I personally thought that some players were miscast and this distracted from the illusion.

News break!

Only last week, our local Starbucks was blown up. After a somewhat cursary examination by legions of  senior security officials it was thought to be a prank of brainless teenagers. Last night, the building next to mine was evacuated and the tenents moved to hotels nearby. The tunnelers have be monitoring it for some time and it is begining to lean backwards and sideways (encroaching on our space) at an increasing rate and has now reached the unsafe condition. It has always been an eyesore and we hope that it will now be demolished. In the meantime, the bars next door will be out of business.Star1

Our sidewalk has been cordoned off. Probably for years!
