   Before I formally conclude my trip to New York, I thought I would look back at some highlights, courtesy of Rich Hogan Photography. He’s aces for capturing wonderfully candid moments.

The repositories at Baychester and Jerome Park (in the Bronx), and Mid-Manhattan were quite hospitable, and very professionally run. The staff made it easy to present Forgotten Hollywood to the festival patrons choosing to attend my nostalgic journey through cinema’s Golden Age.

   What made this trip complete was my companion throughout the trip to the East Coast, my sister Virginia (below). This may have been the most fun I have ever had with my sibling away from home. One of my closest friends, Rich Hogan (below), lives in Upstate New York, and he traveled down to spend treasured time with us. One of the many stops, Katz’s Delicatessen, was the locale of a famous scene in When Harry Met Sally. All I will say about the cinematic moment is that involved Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal.
