    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

New NY Skyline

These pictures were taken from the deck of the “Dawn” as she was sailing out of the harbour. They show the skyline which was once dominated by the twin towers. Rebuilding is obviously proceeding but it is difficult to see the progress from the middle of the Hudson.
