I used to watch her father in Union Square
I used to watch her father in Union Square and as soon as I heard her voice I knew who she was. She is the daughter of Joe Ades he was featured in Vanity Fair and was on the Today Show I never got to buy a peeler from him, he died this Winter. I took her up on her offer of buy 4 get 1 free. "You will only need one, but you must have at least 4 friends.... They make great gifts." Let me know if you want one.
About 50 feed away I literally stumbled on a plaque in the ground. I wonder what there was o the life and death the life of Corp Jeremain P. Ferette. Google offered nothing. It is probably the second or third tree to be in that spot. I hope this tree does batter than the plaque.
Then I walked into the Brooklyn Tourism Office (What a nice group of people.) I was about to leave and they said I can't "the tour is about to start." Got a nice 45 minute tour of Borough Hall. Nice, the building was built around 1845 and stopped being interesting in 1899 when the City of Brooklyn was consumed by New York.
