    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.

NY Day – 92nd St, “Y” and Tarrytown

The 92nd Steet “Y” held its annual street fair last Sunday. Ethel and I spent a pleasant hour or two watching the entertainment being offered from the stage set up in front of the building. The arts departments each had an opportunity to show off the great variety of their students’ accomplishments and advertise their classes.

               We drove up to Tarrytown last week to see how Kelsey was progresssing and I was struck again by the changes that have been made to the Hudson villages since I left the area for the city 20 odd years ago. They have discarded most of the riverside manufacturing plants and building yards which sustained their prosperity in the past and now have become wealthy,  genteel, but charming, dormitory towns. Tarrytown, no less. Specialist tea shops and sidewalk cafes abound.

Passing the time before lunch, here is Susan, Craig and Ethel and Susan's dogs outside one of the coffee shops.
