    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.

19th Precinct NYPD

Crime prevention week at Schurz Park

Manhattan is a conglomeration of village-like communities, each distinct to its own inhabitants. Mother-henning it over each community is an NYPD Precinct–ours is the 19th. Last week the 19th organised a community event in Schurz  park to highten public awareness of scams, frauds and identiy theft and the like and, how we ourselves can help to prevent them.

Entertainment and refreshments helped get the message across and the villagers turned up in quite respectable numbers.
