[September 8, 2006]


A look at the changing scenes and values of New York city, in the last fifty years, as seen thru the eyes and imagination of an Immigrant to USA from India. The perceptions of Americans about the rest of the world, changing life styles of the immigrants and the local people and their social impacts are addressed. This illustrated ‘Power Point’ presentation brings back old memories of  “Idlewild Airport”, first impressions of  the “Empire State Building before the Twin Towers are built”, the days when “Radio City Music Hall” was affordable by everybody, “Statue of Liberty” and the “Staten Island Ferry before the Verrazano Narrows bridge was built”,  are just a few highlights of this diary.
