Central Park Sunday

The last photo is from today’s Israeli Day Parade. The Farmboyz and I watched from Fifth Avenue for an hour or so, but after two or three dozen yeshivas had gone by, the thrill was gone. There were some floats, including one bearing the only Israeli WNBA player, but otherwise it was a rather sedate event, as NYC parades go. I did enjoy the mostly black high school marching band that played Sugarhill Gang’s Apache, which you should know is considered the “hip-hop national anthem“. They were followed by a klezmer band, prompting Father Tony to suggest a fusion klezmer/hip-hop style. “We could call it klezmop!” Oy.
