EASTER PARADE • nyc 2017 • Tom and Margo and Jane

We first met years ago in the Easter Parade.……….and have remained friends…….sharing our love for hats………..Easter and otherwise.

Margo made the hats for Jane and herself….POM POMS…..Birdies and Feathers.

Margo and Karan……..sans Easter Hat……..but next year he says………

Fifth Avenue early in the morning before thew tourists descend.

Charming child………eggs and a birdie too.

This group of ladies created some of the most spectacular hats in the parade.

Jane passed out a basket full of lollies and eggs to tiny children in the parade.

I din’t have the time to create a new hat…………luckily I saved the one I made last year.  A German tourist insisted on buying it……….$100……$200……..final offer, $300.

 [No. She does not work for United Airlines].

Nancy Kwan and her papermania hat.  We loved it.

I promised them next year I would wear my Easter suit.  This year it was 82º .  HOT HOT HOT

DOORS to Stores and Houses in the WEST VILLAGE

Shops, bookstores, Bigelow Pharmacy, Caffe Reggio and the Stonewall Inn are a few of my favorite haunts………they have been here for decades…..and so have I.

The STONEWALL INN was where the GAY LIBERATION began in NYC.  The police raided ………….started to arrest young trannys……throwing them into a paddy wagon……..and for the first time in NYC the gays fought back.  I was there with friends and we rioted all night in the street and  set the trannys free.  The cops were outnumbered………..and the GAY LIBERATION MOVEMENT began in America.
