    Christmas Day 2019 With great luck I managed to get three tickets for the play, "Greater Clements" running at The Mitzi E Newhouse in Lincoln Center. A new play by Samuel D. Hunter, it is beautifully written and superbly acted (Especially by Judith Ivey who plays Maggie). The story line is harrowing and the audience, including we three, was spellbound by it. It is a play which I really want to see again!

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.
