Bang On A Can Marathon took place in The World Financial Center this year with music flowing non-stop for more than 12 hours defying all borders between genres and really making it hard for music lovers to take a break. Every time a new group emerged on the stage, we got swept away and taken by their ingenuity and brilliance.
The photos show the following performers in the event. I only stayed for 10 hours and took a few walks to stretch my legs!
This was a walk around Roosevelt Island on February 27th. We were supposed to go there as a photography group but the Big Apple got hit with a snow storm and the organizer postponed the outing. The walk started on 59th street riding the tram, ascending to the tramway and landing in the island. I then took West Road south and then north. Sadly, the smallpox hospital was fenced and out of reach!
However, I got to the Chapel, the lighthouse and saw some sculptures of E pluribus unum in the middle of the island on the west side.
