Well just came out of the World’s Most Beautiful Cathedral, The Cathedral of Saint John The Devine. As always the visit was magnificent and “Awe Inspiring,” Truly! I’ve been in many beautiful Churches and Cathedrals around the World, not all but many. I’ve been to the famed Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, to one in Montreal as well, to St. Peter’s in Rome, The Cathedral of St. Marks Venice, The Sagrada Familia in Barcelonam Beautiful Churches in Positano, Vernazza in Cinque Terre, Gorgeous Churches in Rio de Janiero, and even there exist a Beautiful Cathedral in believe it or not Newark, new Jersey. And of all these beautiful Churches and Cathedrals, I’ve never seen any, that in My Mind, is as Beautiful and Awe Inspiring as the Cathedral of Saint John The Divine way up on 113th Street and Amsterdam Avenue in the Columbia Heights section of “Guess What? New York City.
What’s that you say? You’re from New York, and you’ve never heard of this Magnificent place. Don’t worry! you’re not alone.”
I’m sure 90% of all New Yorker’s have never heard of this almost Secret Gem of Manhattan. I’ve been there more than a dozen times in my life, and every time I’ve ever taken anyone there, it had been their first trip and they were all absolutely “Amazed.”
Anyway, I can ramble on-and-on about the place, its Beauty and Awe inspiring Magnificent and you might seem like I’m some kind of nut. That old cliche of “Words Can’t Describe” the beauty of this place may have never run truer. Words can not do justice to the feelings you’ll get when inside. But speaking of Words, all you have to do is take my word and go there. At least once in your life. You’ll be Amazed! Truly!
Now, on to the Hungarian Pastry Shop across from the Great Cathedral. The place is awesome, and without a doubt, one of New York’s Great Cafes, as well of one of my picks for World’s Best Cafes. The place has everything a great cafe needs in order to be considered great, plus one thing many don’t have. They make all their own pastries, cakes, cookies, and absolutely thee Best Croissants in all of New York. OK, they got that, which isn’t a requirement to be in the Great Cafe Class, but it’s definitely a “Plus.” OK, a great cafe also needs a wonderful cozy comfortable ambiance, Great Coffee, a Cool Eclectic Client which includes artists and writers etc., along with a Great Vibe. A must! So yes, The Hungarian Pastry Shop has all of these and in Spades. The place is filled with Columbia and Barnard University students and a sprinkling of faculty I guess. There are writers, local residents, and usually anybody who goes to a cafe, by definition has “Something Going On.” And being a cross from the Cathedral of Saint John The Divine, there are tourists, and let’s Thank God for the tourists because other than the parishioners of the church there wouldn’t be many to admire this Great Wonder of New York. As stated earlier, New Yorkers for the most part, don’t even know this Gem of a Cathedral even exists. What a shame. But the tourists do, more so even than the natives. Oh well.
Back to the pastry shop. It is really a wonderful little place. it’s filled with life. The tourists stopping in for a Cappuccino and some sweets, the students studying and what not, writers writing, artists contemplating, and locals having their daily Cup of Joe. I Love it.
Don’t get to go there that often, it’s so far away, about 115 blocks. I live in the Village, the most wonderful neighborhood in new York, and I pretty much have everything I need there.
But Saint John’s is so absolutely wonderful that I think I should try to make a point of shooting up there once every 4-6 weeks. Go into the Cathedral, feel the Majesty, then bop over across the street for a cup of Coffee and a pastry or two. And listen, “You should too. At least Once in your life!”
 
 
The Cathedral of Saint John The Divine and the Hungarian Pastry Shop are both at Amsterdam and 112-113 Street in New York, NY
 
The 1 TRAIN Station is 2 blocks away, and you can take the C Train at 110 Street and Central park West, about 4 blocks walk. Make a whole day of it. Go to Central Park, the Cathedral of course, You can go to “Tom’s” of SEINFELD fame 2 blocks away on Broadway for a Burger, Breakfast or whatever, and a must visit to the Hungarian Pastry Shop Cafe for a Great Day in Columbia heights NY, NY

On 15 April 2019, just before 18:50 CEST, a fire broke out beneath the roof of Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. By the time the fire was extinguished fifteen hours later, the building’s spire and roof had collapsed and its interior, upper walls, and windows had been severely damaged; even more extensive damage to the interior was prevented by the stone vaulted ceiling, which largely contained the burning roof as it collapsed. Many works of art and other treasures were evacuated early in the emergency, but many others were damaged or destroyed. The cathedral’s two pipe organs, and its three 13th-century rose windows, suffered little or no damage. No person, firefighter or civilian, was killed by the fire.

President Emmanuel Macron promised the country would restore the cathedral and launched a fundraising campaign which brought in pledges of €800 million within 24 hours. It has been estimated that restoration could require twenty years or more.

Construction of the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris (“Our Lady of Paris”) began in the 12th century, using stonework for the walls and vault and wood for the main roofs and spire. The original flèche (spire) lasted until 1383, its replacement was lost in a 1630 fire, and a third was damaged by wind and removed between 1786 and 1791; the spire lost in the fire, made of lead-covered oak and designed by Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc, was added in the mid-19th century. The cathedral was listed as part of the “Paris, Banks of the Seine” UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.

In recent years the cathedral suffered significantly from crumbling stonework, primarily due to environmental pollution; for example, acid rain attacks limestone. In 2014, the Ministry of Culture estimated the cost of the renovation work needed by the cathedral at €150 million.

In 2016, the Archdiocese of Paris launched an appeal to raise €100 million over the following five to ten years to meet the costs of maintenance and restoration. At the time of the fire, it was undergoing renovations on the spire, estimated to cost €6 million. Steel scaffolding had been erected around the roofs.

Mick Jagger recovering from Successful Heart Surgery in New York

 
 
MICK
 
“WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST”
 
WE LOVE YOU
 
“GET WELL SOON”

 

Mick Jagger has successfully undergone what is being described as a “minimally invasive” heart valve replacement procedure.The Rolling Stones frontman is reportedly resting at an unspecified New York CIty hospital. According to Billboard, Jagger was given a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). By using this procedure, doctors were able to repair the heart valve using a catheter that accesses a major artery without opening the chest.
This will allow Jagger to recover much faster than he would be able to do after a more conventional and invasive procedure. Assuming there are no post-surgery complications, the singer could be released from the hospital within a few days.
The Stones postponed their scheduled No Filter tour in order to give the 75-year-old singer time to recover. Rescheduled dates have not yet been announced, although Billboard notes that the shows are now expected to take place starting in July, with details arriving “in the coming weeks.”
News of Jagger’s health issues first broke on March 30. “Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announce the postponement of their upcoming U.S. / Canada tour dates,” the band confirmed in a prepared statement. “We apologize for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.”
“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment. The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible.”
Jagger expressed disappointment at having to postpone the dates, saying he was “so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this. I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on the road as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
The singer has always taken his health seriously, especially in his elder years. According to The Sun, Jagger maintains a healthy, organic diet, jogs up to eight miles a day and also participates in activities like cycling, yoga and meditation. The septuagenarian credits his healthy lifestyle for enabling him to continue touring and performing at a high level.
