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.
