    April 11 Susan, Christine and I went to “The Tank” to see Celeste Cahn perform her work: “A lady does not scratch her crotch”, which she also wrote and directed. It was an intensely acted review of women’s historical and present day emotional and societal challenges. The title protests that a lady does not scratch her crotch, but this one did– and since her hand was covered in shaving cream at the time, the result was really messy!

    April 15 Peoples’ Concert at the Town hall. An all-Mozart concert given by the Peabody Chamber Orchestra. It was conducted with confident professionalism by Leon Fleisher in spite of his advancing years. He also played the solo piano in the A Major Concerto with his old sparkle still intact.

July 4th Fireworks- partial view

Since the Macy’s firework display was moved to barges on the west side, we haven’t seen much of them but we were persuaded to go up to the Waterford roof to see it this year. 40,000 shells were fired off and the display must have been spectacular for those spectators with a clear view such as the people at the top of the building which obstructed our line of sight. Here are a few pictures:

This is our favourite view of Manhattan’s fireworks. And it it available with cloud variations all year round.
