Scenes from the hood
I got to another hood besides ours when I went to New York for a couple days. Central Park was in peak foliage where I hung out and watched Pale Male, Lima and all their fans. I stole these pictures from Lincoln Karin's website devoted to life in Central Park. Went to see Tim O'Brien at the Rubin Museum where he did "Old Joe" but not on banjo. Go there, especially for a concert. Yes, this is NY and not the Irish countryside. It's a cottage brought over from Ireland and reassembled in the middle of the World Trade Center as a Hunger Memorial. Go there too, it's surreal amongst all the concrete, glass and steel, and the scale difference compared to the 9-11 Memorial is chilling. Surreal would be a nice name for an Irish County.
