New York Ballad

16-tons-photo

New York! Oh, if I could sing, I would sing about New York. A ballad about Dominique Strauss-Kahn? Tom Wolfe made it better in his novel “The Bonfire of the Vanities”. Though still one of my favorite points of view is the novel by John dos Passos: “Manhattan Transfer”. Best paintings? Maybe those by James Rizzi. Happy. Though 9/11 is not a story to make happy summaries. Although Osama bin Laden was killed now. But it’s not a Bonnie and Clyde story to sing ballads about. Also not nice: The death of my hero John Lennon. Some positive thoughts related to New York? Yes. Manhattan helped Piet Mondrian and Max Beckmann, Andre Kertesz and Andreas Feininger, Theodor W. Adorno and Ernst Bloch to escape the “Third Reich”. A summary from Germany: by Frizztext: had my best days in New York
