    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!

New York Day

Interest in the construction of the Second Avenue Subway has waned–It has been going on far too long. Most of the action is now underground and people are totally weary of the never-ending road-closings,  mangled sidewalks, business closings, surface garbage and rats. There seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel!

Brazen rats scamper around the garbage-piles in full daylight–they enjoy the stink. They, like us, are waiting anxiously for the subway to be completed–we, so that we can reclaim our sidewalks and trees; they, so that they can get back to their natural habitat. Sadly, it now seems that this event will come too late for many of us– at it was for this character:
