MARCH FOR SCIENCE with 600 marches participating worldwide

The TRUMP administration is silencing science driven departments and cutting the budgets.  TRUMP has appointed a slew of climate change deniers and given them high ranking positions in the government.

This march has mobilized the scientific community……PHYSICISTS………SCIENTISTS………ENGINEERS……….NEUROSCIENTISTS.

 

A stroll in CENTRAL PARK today

After lunch at the boat house we strolled over to theBethesda Fountain……and met this sweet couple from Australia………..Jayde and John.  She has been to NYC four times……..this is John’s first visit.

The weather was fantastic.  The geese…….the tulips…..the sketch artists………the “bubble boy”………the brides…….the turtles……….and thousands of tourist……….all enjoying Central Park.

NYC has BUDDED and BLOOMED

CENTRAL PARK is ablaze with blossoms…….Cherry and Apple.

Artists capture the beauty………

The ELDORADO TOWERS get a great view of the reservoir.

Spring has Sprung in NYC today

It was a 76º day in NYC.  I decided to do a “beach” lunch and pretend I was on Sanibel Island in Florida.

I met a nice family from Sweden this morning at Tavern on the Green in Central Park.  I wish I had invited them to lunch.

The green fish water pitcher…a gift from Margo…..it “gurgles” when you pour!

Platter from Bonwit Teller.

TUNE SALAD with watercress.

Okra….grapes and blue cheese.

Flowers from my local florist.

LIVING IN THE CLOUDS

The new glass towers on west 57th street are so high they get lost in the clouds.

ONE 57……on West 57th street is only 90 floors high………..but you too can live the “high life” for $95 million………….tho an apartment of the 40th floor will only set you back $48 million.

The two specks in the sky [on the left] are the towers in the clouds.

The view from my terrace is always changing……….a moment by moment treat.

A luxury hotel is in the lower floors of the building so your guests can stay in their own suite.

The bedrooms can run from simple to grand.

The apartments are full of luxury amenities……….and the views are spectacular.

 

SNOW DAY in New York…was a BLIZZARD

We did NOT get the predicted 24″ of snow………..just a nice dusting……..as you can see in these watercolors. BUT….tomorrow it will be dirty nasty grey sludge.

The Dakota Apartments at Central Park West and 72s street………….and the benches just inside the park.
