    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.

Art on Park Avenue

Took the  second Avenue bus to 50th and walked across to Park to view the installation art of Alice Aycock. The morning was bright and ideal for photography but, when I first arrived at Park Avenue, the sun was not high enough to  light the bottom of the canyon. I sat on the steps among the lunch-time crowd until the sun bested the office towers. The time was not wasted–the al fresco diners were keen to tell me all about the photographic equipment they used and to recommend how I should upgrade mine.

The art, as is usual for these displays, is installed on the centre median at the cross roads. Heavy traffic, both pedestrian and vehicular, made for difficult timing of shots but here are mine; art interacting with the bustle of New York:

  1. Hi Ben: Lenore & I continue to enjoy your brief photo tours that capture the energy, excitement & magic of New York City. We know what we’re missing but at least we have plenty of sunshine & oranges to make up for our loss. Regards, Larry Aronow
