These Are a Few of Our Favorite Things.

Okay, come on, you know you have to sing this one...) Raindrops on sidewalks, And blueberry Knishes. Raspberry cheesecake and old-time cheek kisses. NoHo and SoHo and church bells that ring, These are a few of our favorite things. West Greenwich Village and tables on sidewalks, Washington Square and the poems in pink chalk, Pigeons...

The Happiest Place in Manhattan

Social media dubbed this area, The Happiest Place in Manhattan.  It is one of the most beautiful sceneries in New York City.   Way up in north Manhattan on a spot where George Washington and his Revolutionaries took on the soldiers hired by the British in 1776. It’s the Cloisters located in the Fort Tryon Park. John... Continue Reading →

Please Stand Clear of the Closing Doors!

Subways are probably the number one target of complaint for New Yorkers.  Apparently we haven’t lived here long enough to develop the aversion, rather we continue to be fascinated by a system, that is able to move so many people and which is easily accessible from almost anywhere in Manhattan. Although there are frequent (warranted)... Continue Reading →

I’m Shameless

Okay, I’m guilty, even before we get started, but I am an artist, and sometimes we are shameful self-promoters. For those of you living outside The City, the first Thursday in each month is known as Gallery Crawl.  Most galleries in the area open their doors, provide offerings of cheese and wine, and promote their...

A Nice Touch

I woke early this morning, just in time to see the Norweigan Escape pulling into the pier.   From our little perch 23 stories above the streets, we keep our eye on our city.   On the streets below, we see the yellow cabs and the black cars delivering New Yorkers to their destinations about...

Worth the effort

Getting there was anything but simple.  With the N train in Astoria closed for track repairs, reaching the Wellington Court Project was anything but easy. It started with a one mile walk to get to the N train which took us only another mile where we caught the Tram to Roosevelt island. On Roosevelt Island... Continue Reading →

Senatori at the Decimo

It was like spotting Santa Clause or Big Foot or catching a jackalope.  You hear all the stories, you see the evidence they have been here, but you never seem to have your camera out to prove they exist. Like a vampire, street artists come in the middle of the night, produce some of the... Continue Reading →
