MacKenzie Child……..Piles of Pillows

Their emporium on West 57th street is a visual delight for me.  I can’t go there without buying  SOMETHING……..a cushion.  JUST ONE!

This is the one I took home with me today.  I LOVE IT.

ARMAGEDDON on my Terrace today

I spent last week-end planting like mad……..all new flowers and plants and some new planters…..it was starting to look beautiful.

Today a scaffold crew arrived at 8am and announced they were going to erect 4 scaffolds to “point” the bricks  around the terrace and would be here for 8 months.  There goes the summer.

ARMAGEDDON!!!    Click on a scaffold to see the disaster.

GRAND CENTRAL STATION…….is oh so Grand!

The old lady is as grand as ever…………..and 750,000 people pass thru here every day.  44 train platforms and 67 tracks make her the largest train station in the world.  

The grand staircase is designed after the one in the Paris Opera.  The statues outside are: HERCULES….MERCURY and MINERVA……all very SEXY.

WHITBY HOTEL • NYC

The Whitby Hotel on West 56th street……near Central Park and all the other exciting places in the city…Apple, Tiffany, Prada…..all just steps away.

The hotel is rather austere from the outside…..but once inside….you will not want to leave.

The breakfast nook is actually my favorite room……..tho the breakfast is a bit pricey………$30 for granola or french toast………but worth every tasty morsel.

The corner suite with the terrace is on sale right now for $900 per night.

NEVER AGAIN • MARCH FOR OUR LIVES

500,000 PEOPLE have gathered in New York City today to protest TRUMP and the NRA and their gun laws.

More of our children will DIE if the present gun laws are not amende

My neighbors started lining up in front of my apartment at sunrise……….waiting to join the march.

The view from my terrace……….the start of the MARCH………so I went down to the street to join them.

Thank you WALMART and DICK’S SPORTING GOODS for changing you policies on the sale of guns.

A few of the half million people who were gathering for the march.

A Light Dusting of SNOW

It was mostly WIND and RAIN…….and a dab of the white stuff.  Disappeared in a jiffy.
