    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.

The Tavern on the Green

Sadly for NY city, the Tavern on the green has closed it’s doors. No more will  spellbound visitors from europe experience the fairylit Cristal room or dance under the lanterns on summers’ nights. Like so many  other Newyorkers, I had great fun there over the years. Touristy though it was, it was a uniquely NY happening and Central Park will not be quite the same without it.

The auctioneers are in

Would anyone like a topiary gorilla for their patio?

The Park is in an appropriate mood

. . . . . and the ducks are not too happy

The Cristal room is under wraps


. . . . . . .

Life, however, continues apace in the rest of the city in spite of the fridgid weather we’ve been having:
