Music in Tel Aviv and NY
In Tel Aviv, my visit, happened to coincide with the White Night, an annual celebration that keeps the city open all night. Rothschild Boulevard, a boulevard of modernist buildings from Bauhaus to soon a Richard Meier tower, was lit with music from around the world and wandering crowd. Observation: Trying to dress well and look good in Tel Aviv is like going to FOCS and STOC and trying to look smart. You can try it, but everyone around you is smart, and you look silly.
Back at home. The city left 60 pianos in public spots so anyone can play.
