    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.

NYD – Hudson’s colors

On Sunday we drove over the George Washington bridge on to the Palisades Parkway and thence  to Bear Mountain to view the fall colors. The coloring was a bit spotty but the river looked spectacular none-the-less. We splashed out and took the buffet brunch at the Bear Mountain Overlook Restaurant. $27 each, but well worth it, both  for the food and the view.
