    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at the  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

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.
