First half of August gone by
Before more days go by and I forget the things I have been doing, here is a quick run-down for the first half of August (the last day of July I went to a Sigur Rós concert in Prospect Park):
August 1st I went to the MoMA to watch Hitchcock’s “To catch a thief” and eat at the nearby Le Pain Quotidien.
August 2nd, instead of taking advantage of the invitation to the Park Avenue Armory for the opening night party for Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller: “The Murder of Crows”, I went to AlphaOne Labs for a 3D printing session. But it turns out the session was cancelled, so ended up having dinner and a long conversation in Brooklyn.
August 4th I spent completely (and delightfully) at the MET.
Augut 6th I went to the Social Security Administration to get a replacement card (needed for my ID and driver’s license). I took this picture of a stupid sign there. After that, I saw “The Adventures of Robin Hood” at Bryant Park.
August 7th I was invited to a wonderful “M Ward + Yo La Tengo” concert at Prospect Park (thanks, it was great! unlike my crappy phone picture).
August 8th I strolled through Grand Central and re-discovered the market (where I got some food and ate it at Bryant Park).
August 9th I went to the MoMA premiere of Keanu Reeves’ new documentary about the film industry.
August 11th I went to Times Square Summer Festival (just a couple of streets closed to the traffic, where I got some mozzarepa, crêpe, and lemonade).
August 12th I had an awesome day at two parks. First I went kayaking on the Hudson River (Riverside Park downtown boathouse). Then to Central Park where I reflected on the Imagine mosaic, enjoyed moving music under the Bethesda Terrace, and had a blast seeing the AfroBats and the Central Park Roller Skaters.
Let’s see what the second half of August brings!
