What is wonderful about New York is finding so many opportunities to take great photos. Riverside Park on a sunny day provided one possibility after another. One scene is a view of nature, another of the city. As a series, the photos speak to the versatility and wonder of our urban area.

When I first moved to NYC, I watched the World Cup with friends at a bar downtown. I remember walking to the bar and passing many Irish, Italian, American and French bars with customers overspilling from the watering holes, everyone clad in their team’s respective jersey. The commaraderie was fun (and funny) to witness. The craziest part of the day was when I walked past a girl with her entire body painted as the Italian flag (lucky for her, Italy won that year).
The World Cup is unlike American football and baseball seasons. Yes, we get excited for a new season of these sports each year but the World Cup only happens every four years. There is a different kind of excitement because the anticipation has a chance to build up for such a long period of time. And so, here we are again.

For 11 seasons, from 1982 to 1993, Ted Danson played Sam Malone, a self-absorbed ex-baseball player who ran the most famous bar in America, Cheers. The NBC sitcom was the perfect storm, the coming together of a brilliant concept, exceptional writing, a great theme song, and skilled actors who made up one of TV’s best ensembles ever. On June 3, Danson entertained an audience at the Paley Center for Media, sharing many behind the scene anecdotes about Cheers and other projects he’s been a part of. A contributing founder and board member of the nonprofit organization, Oceana, Danson also talked with Paley Center President Pat Mitchell about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Uptown Arts Stroll Kicks Off! →

The kickoff for the Uptown Arts Stroll, an annual celebration of the arts in northern Manhattan, begun nine years ago by local artists and now run by the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA), was held this year at the venerable and elegant Hispanic Society of America. At the corner of 155th and Broadway in Washington Heights, the Hispanic Society of America is well worth a visit on any occasion, containing as it does the largest collection of Spanish art outside Spain. It also fronts on Audubon Terrace, a landmarked grand plaza, perfect for holding a fiesta for the two neighborhoods.
