S&P Lunch – 1928 Lunch Counter

The nostalgic interior is a maintained original, which partly makes S&P wonderful—diners feel they are part of the continuum, making lunch there akin to being able to step inside an Edward Hopper painting.

Bach Vespers – Candlelit Bach

About me

About me
I travel to discover how people elsewhere live, how they manage living with low incomes in expensive cities, how they grapple with hard times and failing economies, how they deal with ageing or crumbling families and how they themselves age and adapt.

Knowing and loving New York comes from having lived through many of its manifestations while witnessing its changes.

Why New York
I love New York because of its broad cultural spectrum realized in all forms of the arts, food, technology, politics and transportation, and its easy access to the beautiful countryside surrounding it, and the other magnificent cites near it.
