Photo by myself above Central Park, around 86th Street and Fifth Avenue.
Ah, what a view? I took this photo from a project site last week.
The trees in Central Park are showing their fall colors. The large building to the left is the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Has anyone caught the recent episode of Frontline, set in a hair salon on the Upper East Side?
The episode, called Close to Home, originally aired October 27th. A New York hairdresser has intimate conversations with her clients, many of whom are struggling economically.
It's amazing how honest some of these talks were. The styling mirror helps, since stylist and client can talk to each other eye-to-eye, without looking at each other directly.
Mark and I only saw part of the show but plan to watch it again. I loved what I saw simply because these are fellow New Yorkers on film. Sadly, many of those interviewed thought they could solve their troubles by using their credit cards.
I always thought the Upper East Side and its residents were untouchable. Not so.
You can see the entire show free online. Click here to read more about the Frontline episode.
