LOVELY MANHATTAN - MAY 2003
"LINCOLN CENTER - The fountain and the Metropolitan Opera House. Home to some interesting operas and to the biggest discordant sound (fífia) I've ever heard in my life in an opera house: it was the first appearance on the Met of an American soprano from somewhere in the Midwest and poor Lucia de Lammermoor was slaughtered..."
"CENTRAL PARK SOUTH - The views from the Park to 59th Street are always rewarding"
"BASEBALL at the Heckscher playground"
"THE PLAZA, when it was still a hotel. Everything was overpriced, that's true, but it was nice anyhow..."
"THE PIERRE - On the contrary, the Pierre seems to be still there, now as part of the Taj hotels chain..."
"THE POND at Central Park: always a nice place to enjoy"
"THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART - A fabulous permanent collection and fantastic special exhibitions"
"CENTRAL PARK WEST - The Beresford, one of the world's greatest residential buildings"
"JAPANESE BRIDE AND GROOM - Central Park has always something interesting to be photographed..."
"THE LAKE AT CENTRAL PARK: East, South and gondolas"
"TIMES SQUARE - It seems that the density of illuminated signs in Times Square rivals Las Vegas!?"
