So we took a trip out to Governors Island on Memorial Day.
This is an amazing exhibit at the Morgan Library (only 'till next weekend, sorry). It a room full of bits and bobs signed by, or written by, just about every famous person you could imagine from the past 500 years, including: Francis Drake Leon Trotsky Ernest Shackleton Hirohito The Beatles Mata Hari Charles Darwin [...]
Chillin' at the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival at Tompkins Square Park in the East Village. Now on-stage: the Jack DeJohnette - the Dave Holland - and the Jason Moran. Previously, Allan Harris and the Donny McCaslin Group were nice discoveries.
Blue Jays down 6-0 to the Yankees after 5 innings, but then the bats came alive. It was 12-6 when we left in the 8th.
We went to the matinée of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime yesterday. Heidi loved it. I thought it was very good, but too "shouty" (if that's a word) compared to the tone of the book. And Hoo Boy! was it hot in NYC yesterday!
