MORE SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE

I'm running behind a weekend or two, but then I had said these entries were going to be few(er) and far (ther) between. Nevertheless I did get down to the LES two Sundays ago—the 9th—to see Creative Time's exhibition Living as Form. There's a link to the website below and you can read about it—the reviews are more telling, and, while I am no critic, I barely understood the premise, let alone, the art on view. But, as though expected, I managed to photograph an installation of cups. 

It was another of those picture perfect Indian Summer days and I always enjoy walking around this neighborhood—it's a lively, very young scene, with lots of neat things to take in, like galleries (with some very good art) stylish shops, and good restaurants—coffee shops of course—all situated amid the remnants of 'old world' New York. This is after all the area where a great many Irish, Polish, German and Jewish immigrants settled (including my grandparents and their five sons, my dad the youngest of them) from the mid 1800s on.
