I hope you had a glorious Memorial Day weekend. This morning, my husband and I attended a moving memorial service held at the Sailors’ and Soldiers’ Monument in Riverside Park. Mayor Bloomberg and City Council Member Gale Brewer were among the eloquent speakers, and the United States Navy Band played the anthem. Seeing the currently enlisted young men and women (and they do look young) of the Navy and the Marines, next to the retired servicemen and women (one senior officer in attendance had conducted taps at FDR’s funeral), was very touching. It is a beautiful service offered annually on the Upper Westside, and I am glad that I was able to attend this year to pay my respects.
