I'm Sitting On Top Of The World

I tried to get a shot of Knickerbocker Village, but Confuscius Plaza was in the way.
At The Year of the Tiger Party for Fourth Arts Block
Cooper Square Hotel, June 17, 2010
For years, Manhattan artists have been fleeing to the outer boroughs, chasing the ever-receding rainbow of affordable rent. The artistic community on E 4th St, however, is still vibrant. In 2005, Mayor Bloomberg designated the area as an official Cultural District, and sold eight properties to various arts organizations for one dollar each, including the New York Theater Workshop, La MaMa and the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Tonight's party in the penthouse of the Cooper Square Hotel benefits the so-called Fourth Arts Block, with performances by Sidra Bell Dance, palm readings, a fortune-cookie raffle, a silent auction and hors d'oeuvres from Faustina.
I'm sitting on top of the world,
Just rolling along
Just rolling along
I'm quitting the blues of the world
Just singing a song
Just singing a song
Glory hallelujah, I just phoned the parson
Hey, par, get ready to call
Just like humpty dumpty,
I'm going to fall
I'm sitting on top of the world
Just rolling along
Just rolling along

My sometimes Blogger blog, btw, is
