  The Day After: The Judson (inarguably the least known but most important peace and creativity venue of the 1960s), which had a prayer service last night, updated its sign Tuesday - while still keeping track of the war dead.

  At Christopher Park, the George Segal sculpture and the Parks Dept sign with its iconic Fred W. McDarrah Gay Pride image (upper left of photo), were bathed in remembrances.

  The ground near the "Four Figures" sculpture has the names of the Orlando victims written in chalk.

  Today's Save the Village tour was the most somber one yet. But it was also perhaps the most thoughtful and educational. Discussing the balance between progress and preservation, the meaning of the history and importance of a place like Stonewall and the reaction to the slaughter in Orlando left everyone more aware of the problems of the world we now all live in.

  And, some positive ideas on how to begin to solve them.

groupon redux

Groupon Approved: George Segal's sculpture "Four Figures" in front of the Parks dept. interpretive sign with a Fred W. McDarrah photo, in Christopher Park. The park is directly across the street from Stonewall.

Well the folks at Groupon ultimately refused to use a Fred W. McDarrah image on the deal page for Save the Village Tours.

They did use this snapshot taken by yours truly. They did not ask about the copyright, and were thrilled that it is a color photo, and in focus.
