C Train to 79th Street.
Noble sort of statue outside the Museum of Natural History.
Lots of school children around and a very blue sky.
Bus through the park to 5th Avenue.
The Neue Galerie is positively one of my favorite places in New York.
Frances and I think we should move in immediately. Such elegance.
Even the type faces on the posters outside the bathrooms enchant.
No photos allowed in the Brucke exhibition.
Then we come to the other good bit: the Cafe Sabarsky.
Wood panelling, a grand piano, views of Central Park.
Austrian doughnuts with apricot jam oozing out.
Merisi, I was thinking of you.
The coffee mit Schlag. (Forgive my attempt at German.)
The cake was perfection: coconut, almond and mango.
In the evening, Eugene Brodsky's opening at Sears Peyton on 11th Avenue.
The open fire escape door an automatic photo op.
