    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

Times Square at Super Bowl time.

Sunday Afternoon (Super Bowl day), I took my camera down to Times square to photograph all the wonderful sports displays and games that had been erected for the Super Bowl match which, I had been told, were spectacular. I arrived when it was all in the last stages of being dismantled! Even the Grand Central and Bryant Park displays were gone. Apparently the licenses were conditioned upon the spaces being returned to normal that very afternoon–even before the game began. I took the following few pictures of the remaining activity.
