    June 13 Picnicked on The Great lawn in central Park to the music of The New York Philharmonic led by James Gaffigan. Great program with spectacular fireworks after the concert. The concert included two pieces composed by students from its education program — remarkable works (Bernstein style) from composers  11 and 12 years old respectively! They took their bows from the stage!

NY Day – Giant bubbles in the Park and Garbage

How’s this for entrepreneurship? This New Yorker entertained the crowds with two sticks, a length of rope and a bucket of suds!

He used them to make giant rainbow-colored bubbles float free as the air in Central Park, to the delight of young and old. They lasted a surprisingly long time if they didn’t strike a snag–He must have used some glycerine or the like in his suds.

One floats gossamer-like  over the Park wall:


A less edyfing result of the 2nd Avenue Tunnellers’ work is the haphazard trash piles which have appeared and have to be relocated according to the progress of the construction. They are often neglected. The irony of this picture is the MTA billboard supporting the businesses behind it.

Little feet marks around the this pile are made by Starlings and rates
