    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.

Spring Arrives in Central Park Conservancy Gardens

Taking advantage of a visit to the Museum of the City of NY, we popped across Fifth Avenue to see how the Conservancy Gardens are coping with the strange weather pattern (The temperature has ranged from 30 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the last few weeks). No fear, they are coping beautifully. The fountains are not yet working but the Spring flowers are not waiting for them!:
