    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!

And, of course, the opera house still occupies one elegant corner.

A great performer in the old Busker tradition. He knew exactly how to work his audience and it responded generously. I put five dollars in his cap and considered it a bargain for the pleasure I had enjoyed!
