Last Wednesday at about 4:30 as I approach Yoel Solomon Street to visit a purveyor of frozen vegetables and dairy products. The warehouse is moving and will pass to catch the new address. The umbrellas are a recent addition.
It’s a cool time and I circle up to the Iryah, following incessant beat. And the entire stretch of the plaza in front of City Hall is filled with basketball activities. Here’s part of the line-up. School is not out yet, but these guys have gotten some cool shirts (see fellow in yellow).
