Or you can watch time go by really really slowly at the return of the FREE The Clock exhibit at the Lincoln Center Atrium from July 13 to August 1. While you are at the Atrium enjoy food from Wishcraft, check out the Lincoln Center half price day of booth, order advance tickets for anything in Lincoln Center, take a Lincoln Center tour and enjoy the free concerts on Thurs evenings.

Thanks to Georgia at Trip Advisor, here's a link to the Mt Carmel events on Staten Island. I am thinking that a trip to a favorite of mine, the Alice Austin house, on Friday the 13th followed by the concert at Mt Carmel might be a great day. http://ourladyofmountcarmelshrineofrosebank.com/3.html
I'm working the day of the Raritan Bay festival but it would have been the perfect excuse to finally get me to the Conference House!


The lecture at museum of the City of New York was great tonight. In addition to the announced speakers, Neil DeGrasse Tyson - the man who identified and named Manhattanhenge showed up as a special guest. He told a story of being on the bridge at Tudor City to watch sunset when an older woman said "move over sonny I can't see". He graciously moved and refrained from telling her that he was the reason she was here. It reminded me of the following clip from one of my favorite movies - Yankee Doodle Dandy - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1rkzUIL8oc

It also reminded me of a Pete Seeger story from this blog -- http://thestarryeye.typepad.com/explorenyc/2011/03/the-great-saunter-may-1-2010-shorewalkers.html All of them - gracious men.
