Meeting new neighbors in our alley has been great, but even more enriching when you discover there are some artist dads on the block! Local dad and artist Nitin Mukul had his show at the Consulate General of India, NYC – allowing us not only to view his work, but to hang at the Consulate at the same time. And we thought his paintings looked great in his home… look at them in this space!

Here we are saying “so long-for-now” to neighbors who are moving to the other coast for a go at a new career, and enjoying the first warm day during Memorial Day weekend. A neighbor then drove in with his ‘kit car’ that took him 2 years to make. Of course you know who had to climb in and give it a test drive!

Mother’s Day was a beautiful balmy day that encouraged us to go to the beach BUT .. our alley tempted my kids to stay.  Neighbors set up a pool, we sat around and chatted, and lounged all day while the kids were happy.  How can a Mother’s Day get better than that?
