How tragic for his family to have lost him in such a senseless way.

Haven't checked in for some time. A friend shared your architecture album...wonderful! And I just read about the Willis Avenue Bridge. I always take that to get to the East River Drive and Manhattan. Never knew anything about it except that it has always looked "needy" and indeed they are often doing work on it. I have been taking that bridge ever since the 1970's when I was working on restoration projects related to the Maritime Museum and the Seaport. Miss those independent fish market guys and the now relocated Fulton Fish Market. Always thought the fish market would have made a wonderful series of watercolors or oil paintings. Wonder if anyone did do that. But the specs and facts about the bridge were fascinating and in fact your whole "documentation" of your "neighborhood" and the river environments is a significant piece of work. I look forward to your book someday and perhaps an essay on the building of the new stadium. You are an inspiration Duane.


P.S. Sorry for the anonymous...I ALWAYS HAVE TROUBLE logging in...don't know why. Just old and dumb I gues.

It's a horrific lost for his family but it's also a stain on our society and our species that such senseless acts of inhumanity, insensitivity, and indifference continue to happen.

HAPPY DAY +100, DUANE - you've done fantastically - your family and friends must be SO very proud of you (as I am!! :o) )

Glad you're getting a PET scan for your abdominal pains........sincerely hope it will assuage the understandable fears you have.

Continuing to think of you.......xx
