South Street Seaport with Roy

I have known Roy since our days at Forest Hills High School from 1964-67.  He worked for many years as a city planner in an office building across the street from City Hall in lower Manhattan.  Once a year I would meet him there for lunch.  That lucky guy retired last year and now has all the time in the world to take advantage of the cultural activities of the Big Apple.  Today I was able to meet him for lunch without having to be concerned for his getting back to work.  After lunch we walked over to the Sout Street Seaport and saw Amazonia Brazil, a 13,000 square foot recreation of the Amazon rain forest.  Roy knows what cultural activies in the city are either free or discounted.  This exhibit is free today and on Thursday May 29th.  It will close on July 13th.  After seeing that we walked around the shopping mall there.  I have to go back to work on Thursday, but he does not :(

Bruce, did you take that photo which is furnished along with your memo?

When I see great pictures like the one you put up today, I keep telling myself I really need to buy a camera.
