Going For The Gold

Trump sign
Photo by myself, outside the Trump International Hotel and Tower, at 59th Street and Central Park West.

This shiny sign and shiny building symbolize less class and sophistication than sheer bling.

Tonight (Tuesday), Bob Dylan is playing in Prospect Park, his first Brooklyn concert.

Tickets went on sale in June for 7,000 seats, ranging between $55 to $100 dollars. Reports said that some tickets were being resold for over $550.

Mark and I didn't go, though. He's still recovering from working the weekend. We've been glued to the television at night, watching the Olympics, like everyone else. The camera flit between the synchronized diving, swimming and gymnastics.

Whew!

Like the perspective shoot!
Remember The Apprentice? What a joke. In my opinion Trump is a clown with a ridiculous hairdo. But you can't deny the fact that he's also a smart and succesful businessman. A peculiar man.
I don't think you missed anything not attending the Dylan concert. Personally I wouldn't go even if someone paid me. He's so dull on stage.

Just last night, I saw a concert listing for Bob Dylan at the Borgata in Atlantic City?! That just struck me as so wrong.

Wow. Two interesting reviews already.

I don't like Donald's hairpiece either. LOL

lol, Fredrik
yeah, I saw Dylan onstage once and felt perplexed. Haha.

Trump perplexes me, too. Does he not see himself on tv? I'd love to see the world through his eyes, just for one day.

Hi Spandrel
I wonder what's up with him? His last hurrah?

His ex-girlfriend from his youth came out with a book recently. I heard an interview with her. She sounded very down to earth and nice.

Morning Mr Lincoln
haha, always nice to see you.

your comment re Bling is oh so true. But that is the template for Bloomberg's NYC. His admin is both pushing to rezone the lower east side and develop the low cost, middle class friendly garages near Yankee Stadium. All Bloomberg sees is BLING>
