How it began…

Alice, tiring of her sister’s chatter, was getting sleepy.  She didn’t think much of it when a white rabbit appeared in front of her and pulled a watch from his pocket.  He began shouting, “I’m late! I’m late!” then he scurried into a thicket and disappeared down a rabbit hole.  Bored, Alice followed.  She tumbled and... Continue Reading →

The Feel of Night

What is it about the night that makes the world look so different?  Walking at night is one of the things I love most about New York. As sunset fades deep in the City, new life is breathed into the streets as mammoth digital billboards light the streets with colored air and flicker sponsored ads... Continue Reading →

Steven Van Zandt is a guitar player from the Asbury Park era of Rock ‘n Roll history with a long and storied pedigree.  Usually... Continue Reading →

Chess Anyone?

Outside the door a knight stands protecting the King and inviting potential opponents to walk through the door.

Monday nights offer Jim Caruso’s Cast Party, open... Continue Reading →

Doesn’t matter what the weather is.  In the winter under a blanket of snow, we lay down in the Sheep Meadow and make snow angels.  In the spring, we walk through the Ramble catching the flora come to a...

Katz Deli

The Madhatters told us to do it!  So we did. Katz Deli is one of the oldest delicatessens in New York City.  It was first opened in 1888 in the same location it is today.  Sliced pastrami is their specialty. I had the pastrami on rye!  Justin and Lynn of the Madhatters strongly suggested the... Continue Reading →

Fractured Wisdom

  If you are old enough to recall the Burma Shave posts along Route 66 you will appreciate the creativity of Sidewalk Wisdom Boards found outside storefronts of the City, mostly  in the East and West Villages and Hells Kitchen. Boards are placed to draw attention to the storefront or suggest daily menus and specials. ... Continue Reading →
