This performer was playing “Summer Wind” when Lee Morgan obtained this photo. It is rare to find street musicians on the boards of Ocean Grove., whereas they are quite prevalent in A. Park

Here is that very same song by “Old Blue Eyes” Frank Sinatra.

In 1898 two hundred and sixty officers and men died when the battleship Maine exploded (unknown cause) and sank in Havana Harbor, Cuba. The harbor at the time was under Spanish control. Spain declared war on the U.S.  It ranks among the worst U.S naval disasters during a time of peace.

Nine months after, a treaty ended the Spanish American War and brought a close to Spanish control over Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines.

Barbara and I had taken the A train to Columbus Circle. We were off to see the French film Trois Coeurs (3 Hearts) at the Lincoln Plaza Theatre at 64th and Broadway. As we were walking by the Trump International Hotel and Tower (the one with the large silver-colored globe in front), we noticed on the Tower’s side plaza along Broadway a very large sculpture of two figures who appeared to be strolling. They looked content, not a concern in the world.  This was one of those moments where art and life becomes blurred. We communed with them silently and hurried off to the film.

Trois Coeurs was about the usual drama of a man falling in love with two women and the ensuing saga. (No spoiler!)

While we loved taking the imaginary trip to France, the film was not as memorable as our earlier moment on the plaza.

It is Sunday, the day after seeing the film, and we are still talking about the surreal aspects of our encounter with the artwork.  A New York moment for sure!
