This all-female drumming group, Fogo Azul NYC (which means Blue Heat), is excellent. I have no idea if this recent performance at the park was scheduled or impromptu but the Brazilian marching band took over Garibaldi Plaza last Wednesday evening and delighted all:
The seating was still in place for Washington Square Music Festival (last show of the season at the park is Tuesday night 6/27!).
A tree fell down along Washington Square East early last week on Monday:
It was quickly cleared:
Fourteen trees have died around the Washington Square fountain over the last eight years (some planted and replanted in the same locations and dying each time in a major design fail). Let ‘s hope this one above is not next! It has hung on a long while although top of the tree does not look great.
I have been reading the book “The Secret Life of Plants” which talks about how plants can register feelings directed towards them so want to send only good vibes to this tree. Stop and touch it, send it good vibes when you walk by!
