Coriolistic Anachronisms


More Spring on Roosevelt Island

Blossoms, city views and a tram

Our last visit two years ago was in later winter, traces of snow lingered on the ground and the air was bitingly crisp. This time around, blossoms and people competed for attention and a space which, as I have said before, is so insipid in a…
