Book Boat

We took a short walk to Pier 25 where the LILAC Steamship is docked and for a limited time is host to a floating library.

Farewell (for now), Mimi

Mimi stopped by Friday night to say one more goodbye before she leaves for L.A.  We will miss Mimi for the next few months as she has not only been a good friend, but also helped out by babysitting Henry on special occasions (birthday and anniversary dinners). We wish her best of luck in L.A., but we will surely miss her here in New York.

1WTC Under Construction

Last night Henry and I stayed home while Jacqui attended her office Christmas party. When she returned, she said the cab had to drop her off a few blocks away because a lot of the streets in our neighborhood were closed.

The reason for the street closings became clear soon after when we saw the massive base segment of the spire of One World Trade Center being hauled down Greenwich Street toward the site.

Today Henry and I went to investigate the remaining, slightly smaller segments on a barge docked in the Hudson.
