ABT Studio Rehearsal

One of my favorite things is Ballet.  Dance I like but its too general a description.  I like the flow, and the beauty of traditional ballet.  Since moving to NY my thrill is ABT, American Ballet Theatre, and as a Patron I received an invitation to visit the […]

Tao Downtown

We went to see Ballet Hispanica at The Joyce last night and they were good, not the great I had remembered.  But beforehand we had dinner at 92 9th Avenue at a wow sort of place called Tao Downtown. No words could describe the room and no  image […]

Got my mani pedi today

I found a nail salon today.. that is a New York experience. Issa, on the second floor at 800 Lexington, what a business.  Wow, a never ending parade of women in and women out.  130 dollars for shellac mani pedi with a 20 minute massage and acrylic fills. […]

Macy’s Flower Show

Every year macy’s on 34th street decorates its windows and main floor with over the top flower displays. This year it felt a bit less like flowers than like a themed decorative display, but it was still fun to see. As usual it was crowded, we went after work […]

Croton-on-Hudson

Finding a supermarket where the aisles are clean, the produce is fresh, and the quality of selection is generous has been a problem for the past few months. Given this, I am on a search for a great market out of the city to ride to on the […]

Balloons

One of the most thrilling things about living in New York is that there is always some exhibit, some new show, something new going on.  The trick is to find it so I keep my eyes and ears open and I read the times arts section and check […]

A walk in my neighborhood

A cool spring day, not really but close. The freezing temperatures have risen enough to make a leisurely stroll once again a pleasure. Honestly, I was reluctant to leave the house but oh sao glad i did. We walked down to the river- peeking into the grand houses […]
