Bravo New York, Bravo!

While on the NY Times website this morning, an image caught my eye. Did I see carpet and chair and people sitting in the middle of Times Square? Yes - this image is just a sparkling component of what the essence of New York is about.

An audience in Times Square had a free treat on Monday evening: projections of the Metropolitan Opera’s opening night, with RenĂ©e Fleming in excerpts from “La Traviata,” “Manon” and “Capriccio.

I don't know who's in charge over there in New York, NY, but whoever it is, to come up with such an extraordinary idea - and perhaps this is a regular occurrence, I don't know - but they deserve a raise.

God bless New York and those exceptional people who understand the cultural splendor something like this event brings. Bravo!
