TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor's) By Dick Palmer Dick Schneider Of Algona Is College Grad Thursday, July 1, 1965 Algeria, (la.) Upp«r D«i Moln«H-9 The title of this column might well be New York City Visited and the World's Fair Revisited, because this time I decided to stay in the city instead of commuting from some point along the rail lines. My choice of the Skyline Motor Inn was dictated largely by the traffic factor as it appeared to be one of the easier locations to reach via the Lincoln tunnel entry point from the New Jersey Turnpike. Altho I had studied the map of the city and thought I had the place of exit from the tunnel located, none of the signs read as I expected them to. The day was Sunday, chosen because traffic presumably would be light and no doubt, it was in a relative sense, but it was nevertheless rather overpowering for this country boy. Fortunately navigation assistance was forthcoming from the other seats and we made it tho I felt like a turtle midst a colony of hares. New York traffic moves at a lively pace with the taxi drivers the most versatile and the most intolerant of clumsy driving. Their comments to the unfortunate sinner are colorful and piercing. - o The Skyline is an oasis of modern elegance in a setting of business and general decay. The location is on 10th Avenue, only two or three blocks from the pier area. None of this rather depressing background appears on the folders advertising the motel. I could not help but reflect as I gazed out the window facing the rear area that we were spending as much for one night lodging as those families had for one week's food. However, vacations should not .be upset by such disturbing thoughts so, like the other guests, we usually had the curtains closed. It is well to have advance reservations when visit- Ing the City. Despite the traffic hazards and the 5% tax (lie host imposes upon its guests, tourism remains a major Income factor and the recommended places are usually filled. ,1 might also add that if a major Broadway show is included in your, plans, you had best send for the tickets in March. All of which makes motel manage- ment'more impersonal and less concerned with you as an individual since your business is hardly a necessity. There is courtesy but it is lacking in warmth. The folder told of the virtues of the dining area and coffee shop noting "reasonable prices". I did not find coffee at 20 cents a cup with a minimum charge of 35 cents in the coffee shop "reasonable" as I would define the term. Needless to say, reasonable menus were to be found if you had the time and inclination for a brisk hike before dinner. Leaving the motel and city was easier than the entry but I routed out the group at 6:00 to beat the traffic. - o Impressions of New York City revolve around noise and people,, poverty and plenty. By all means stroll down Fifth Avenue but, for perspective, take a taxi thru the Bowery. Individual vignettes invariably stand out from the crowd and no matter where you are or what you may be doing, they will be found. There was the very Irish waiter with the extrovert approach that, I suspect, paid off handsomely in tips, the so-called modern freeman complete with cycle, long hair, pierced ears, and assorted four letter words that fit so naturally in his conversation that you were able to take them in stride, the youth on the subway with the hardened, brutal face that caused you to turn away lest the bottled- up hatred should explode, and the gentleman who stopped in response to a simple "good morning" to talk about his city and its many wonders. And, of course, there are the kids growing up in what would appear to many of us conditions quite impossible yet happily playing ball in the streets despite a car between every pitch, But what happens when they get old enough to think and to dream? Here you touch the heart of the problems of this and all great cities. And it is our problem as well, for this city is a part of us, a testing ground for all the Institutions and beliefs that we hold dear. The balance of our Sunday was devoted to a bus trip up Fifth Avenue to the Guggenheim Art Museum, a very fine structure huusing a something less than fine exhibit of modern art with a few older works to provide some relief from the general insanity. The nice thing about an exhibit such as this is that you can laugh or cry depending upon how seriously you take the word "art" and the criminal acts committed on canvas in its name. By now, most of you know that I am inclined to be a bit caustic on this subject. I am a vocal member of the "square" school that believes that there should be some evidence of talent in a work on display. About 50% of the exhibit, in my opinion, would fail to qualify. Some of the finest works in the city are actually on display in the Frick Museum on the same street. And there is also the Churchill exhibit at the Fair but we will revisit this showplace in the next column.
