    October 14 to 21 Cruise - Bermuda
  • theatre and Concerrts

    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!

    June 20 The forecast rain didn’t happen so, having lined up for senior tickets in the morning, we were able to see an uninterrupted ‘Othello” in Central Park last night. The set and costumes were magnificent and the actors did their best but the direction gave  a somewhat bland production. I personally thought that some players were miscast and this distracted from the illusion.

Cold City and last look from Ethel’s balcony

The icy blast which struck New York yesterday brought six inches of snow overnight and a freezing wind. Later the sun came out and all the neighborhood kids rushed out to enjoy the white stuff.  Here are some pictures from the vicinity of the Waterford:

Finally. this is a view from Ethel’s balcony  at 87th Street. Looking north up Second Avenue, it is the last we shall see of it–Ethel will move into her new apartment building when we return from our cruise (See widget).
