To the editor: re: Goodbye Monkey Bars, Hello Imagination Marsh  (BroadsheetDAILY January 17)   The pictures look wonderful. Equally wonderful will be the final completion of the project before those tots go off to college. But questions:  1. Is there a built in use for winter activities in any of this? Maybe one of those slides could […]

CHARLIE GOERING Without Definition (Attempts at Clarity)

Night Falls in the Middle west    Charlie Goering

CHARLIE GOERING Without Definition (Attempts at Clarity) includes paintings that span two recent and distinct bodies of work, highlighting compositions that are transitional between the two. Earlier figurative works, such as Night Falls in the Middle West (top image), are imbued with a sense of magic realism that anticipates the very graphic and surreal later […]

The Disenchanted Pose

The Disenchanted Pose:  If we were to suggest a title for the tableau above, depicting naked mannequins populating the thinly-veiled windows in the now-deserted outpost of Saks Fifth Avenue at Brookfield Place, it might be “Galatea on the Unemployment Line.” But unlike Pygmalio’s beloved creation, these statues, when clothed in size 0 never quite sprang […]

To the editor: Tuesday’s  BroadsheetDAILY had so many troubling concerns deserving comment! First, I fully support CB1 for pointing out the inappropriateness of BPC for a memorial for victims of the hurricane in Puerto Rico.  The Governor wants to be a hero proposing this and BPC is under his control.  So, he suggests our neighborhood […]



To the editor: re: The Deal of the Sentry (BroadsheetDAILY, December 17) This must be a joke!  $2.1 million for what?? All they do is stroll around, looking at their phones or hanging out together on the esplanade. So let me get this straight, $2.1 million to target dog walkers?? Pathetic, to say the least! […]


The 225 Liberty Street lobby after being privatized for Saks, which recently announced that it will close in January

To the editor: As a homeowner in BPC, losing Saks means nothing to me or many people who live here.  Saks was always empty and a bad idea from the start. They need to put something that will appeal to the people who live here.  Trader Joe’s or more reasonable priced retail. Best regards, Maryann Peters […]
