C&C August Visitors

On Monday, the last week in August, Jill, Martha and Lisle came for lunch.  Jill from NYC, Martha from Connecticut and Lisle from Vermont on her way to Boston.  And then on Friday John & Louise came for lunch on their way North from The City.  It was wonderful to see everyone.

Our Class Reunion at City & Country's 100th Year Alumni Celabration

On May 15, 2014, on the occasion of an alumni event to celebrate City & Country's 100th year, some of the remaining members of our class, the class of '62, gathered at about four o'clock at the Jefferson Market Library at 10 Street & 6 Avenue where an exhibition from the school's archives was being held.  From there we walked over to the school and toured the 13 Street building before joining a party in the main yard.  Afterwards we walked over to Souen, a restaurant on 13 Street near Union Square, for dinner.

City & Country 50th Anniversery weekend

On Friday, May 11th Jack and I took the train to New York and went down to the school, where the annual fair was underway.  It was the first time I had been there in 49 years.  Just inside the door we met up with Lisle and her photographer friend from Germany, Anja Nitz.  Then we found Kim, Debbie, Janet and her husband, Harry in the block yard.  We fled the yard, where ear splitting music was blasting, and went to the Library, where we were soon joined by John and his wife, Louise.  I only took pictures sporadically; at dinner Friday at Cafe Blossom on Carmine Street where we walked after leaving the school, and on Saturday in Brooklyn, at lunch, then at a Keith Haring show at the Brooklyn Museum and in the subway.  I regret I didn't take any pictures at John and Louise's delightfully tranquil place in Crown Hts., a true respite from the city, or at Kim's sister's lovely spacious apartment, where we all met for dinner hosted by Kim and Kerry on Saturday.  Some of the pictures below were taken by Louise and some by Anja with my camera.
