A native New Yorker, I rarely found myself at the Statue of Liberty, but yes, to Central Park, and gentle walks though Fall and Spring paths. My last visit to the home land, was this past December when I sauntered with my daughter, Aviva, along the periphery, taking favorite photos of the lake, and surrounding trees.
My daughter sampled the BIG Keyboard at FAO Schwarz
Illumination of Verdi Square–on 73rd street, a stone’s throw from where I used to live on 74th and Amsterdam. I peered over at Needle Park before Verdi was honored.
My NYC High School of Performing Arts that was gutted by a fire, but remodeled and dedicated with a plaque. (no longer a public school) P.A. merged with the High School of Music and Art to become Fiorello Laguardia H.S. located in the Lincoln Center neighborhood.
My touchdown at Seymour Bernstein’s West Side apartment
A visit with Elaine Comparone at her Harpsichord palace:
