    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.

NYDay–Rainy day in Central Park

Last week I walked across to Zabars on the West Side to replenish my Orange Pekoe. It was raining and I was carrying a large umbrella to protect the camera lens. Here are a few views that took my eye:

This Red Maple had somehow survived the wind and the rain


True love cares nothing for the weather. Romeo and Julliet outside the Delacourt Theatre


. . . . and customers, there were none!


Native Newyorkers are not deterred by a spot of rain!

  1. Loved your pictres of New York. I am nt o creative with my camera, but I keep trying

    • Isobel. I am sure you are being too modest. Ideal subjects abound in your part of Florida and the light is always good. If you like, I will post any shots of which you are particularly proud. Ben

  2. We loved the captions. Your park makes poets with the beauty of leaves and lovers and umbrellas. What a gift to embrace life with such exuberance.

    • John and Ann. Living near the Park in my years of lessening mobility is one of the great bonuses of New York City living. Observing the evolution of nature from season to season is an increasing joy for me and there it all is–Just four blocks away! Ben.

  3. That’s not Romeo and Juliet! It’s Ben and Ethel enjoying the rain!
