Brooklyn: saw Fred Tomaselli show and walked through Prospect Park after a brunch at Dressler. Then hosted evening with friends that eventually (d)evolved into wigtime. Splendid day.

~nyc day fifteen: houdini~

December 30th, 2010

houdini-in-cuffs

We walked through Morningside Park to the last address of Erik Weisz, son of a rabbi, immigrant, vaudevillian, escapologist, anti-Spiritualist, Harry Houdini–a brownstone at 278 W. 113th. We then headed down to the Houdini show at the Jewish Museum, a Christmas tradition begun with a fantastic show on Sarah Bernhardt. A picture of the two is below, as well as some library of Congress footage of a straight jacket escape dangling in the sky of NYC.

~nyc day thirteen: frozen moon~

December 28th, 2010

We thought we’d walk through the blizzard in Central Park. Got as far as the reservoir steps before retreating, whipped by wind, pelted by ice, every last inch of us wet and then freezing. This footage does not do justice to much of the magic of that night–thundersnow: lightning in a snowstorm! actual frozen hair!–but dig those ghostly snow fingers wafting from the rooftops…

A lovely New York day spent in Central Park, the Met (Steichen, his 1904 Flatiron picture below), and Cafe Sabarsky (goulash and spaetzle!), all swirled with icy flurries.
