One of the most influential American writers of the 20th Century died on the 27th. The Catcher in the Rye remains one of my favorite books. I wonder if his children will reveal if there was a manuscript their father was working on all these years.
Apparently St. Joseph’s Church down the block from my studio has hired a contractor who’s not using union members to refurbish its exterior.

By the afternoon, the rain was gone and the sun returned.
Monday morning was full of nasty rain and wind.

Man on Wire is a 2008 documentary of wire walker Philip Petit’s preparations for his world-famous Twin Towers stunt. On the morning of August 7, 1974, Petit made 8 crossings, lingering on the wire for over 40 minutes 1400 feet above the street without a safety net! The audacity and the depth of planning of this stunt are especially remarkable given how the Towers were destroyed 27 years later. Why did he do it? The press and police badgered him with that question, a question the Frenchman called very American. After you watch this fascinating film, you realize how irrelevant the question is.
A rainy day makes for an empty Highline, except for a few couples.
