Karl and Marielle go to Town

Brooklyn Subway


I was supposed to go to New York for five days with my Granddaughter, Marielle Mitchell, but I had to drop out because of my breathing problems. I told her to go ahead: she would be my proxy. And a great job she did! Carrying the icon of Marx into the very bars and subways of capitalist Gotham!

  Alanna Petraske's father Alan was one of my closest friends in college. I stayed at his and Anita's apartment on Jones St when I came back to visit with the boys. Alanna lives in the same co-op now. Alan and I don't get out much any more so I was so glad these two kids could get together.,
