Random Photos

One of the 9/11 Memorial pools
on the footprint of the destroyed
WTC towers (the Museum is visible
directly in the center rear of this photo)

I am still gearing up for the James Baldwin conference in Montpellier, France, and wrapping up edits on my next book, so until soon, posting here remains a challenge. 

Meanwhile, so much is happening in the wider world, and I have many events to blog.... 

Here are a few random photos from my daily circuits. Enjoy!

A ship on the Hudson River 
Only in New York: a shop selling only
high-end cosmetics and the Paris Review!
