St. Patrick's Gets The Pryor's Rolling

As an incredibly laxed Catholic it takes a Pope like Francis to get me excited about the direction of the church. His arrival at St. Patrick's today brings to mind my Grandfather Pryor's baptism there in 1900. Thomas E. Pryor was born on Third Avenue and 50th Street before the El was electrified, so every day dirty locomotive driven trains rushed past their third floor window.

Tonight, I'm telling a story about how art and life comingle in my family's lives in Manhattan back to 1896 on Avenue A.

In my family, we make things to convey emotions difficult or impossible to express.

Please rsvp this morning and join us tonight on a rooftop terrace, great storytelling, full dinner & wine and a great skyline view all for $40.
