A room with a view


It's the Appel Room, one of the spaces at
Jazz at Lincoln Center—where the view isn't even
the point, just a bonus to enjoy while you
listen to some wonderful live music.

Monday Mellow Yellows

I saw these guys entertaining the crowd
in front of the Plaza Hotel (or
condo or co-op or whatever it is now).
Hope all of you here in the States are having
a sunny Memorial Day weekend.

inSPIREd Sunday


This is St. Thomas Episcopal Church,
and I was pretty much the only
person in here on a recent Friday evening.
That's most likely because everyone else
was down the street at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
(However, they probably get a few butts in the seats

when its world-famous boys' choir is singing.)

Weekend Reflections


There are now more of these shops around Paris,
but this is the original—in business in this
location for 254 years.  I've read that the dancers
from the Folies Bérgère, just up the street,
would come here for something sweet (and there's
plenty here to kick up your heels over).

Thursday Challenge—"spring"


 . . . when the cherry trees in front of my building
bloom for a wonderful week or so—then turn
the sidewalk into a pretty pink carpet.

ABC Wednesday—S is for "strawberries"


"If there were wild strawberries in Eden,

and there must have been, Adam was a fool as 
well as a sinner to taste any other fruit."
