A CABANA IN HAVANA
Don: ‘Is there any way for Americans to buy Cuban real estate? Assuming that Castro swears off nationalizing stuff, it must be a big bargain.’
Danny Zogott: ‘Andy, Andy, Andy… I KNOW some people [are challenged] distinguishing between ANYTHING north of 86th Street, but c’mon! “Born in Washington Heights – the Bronx, basically…” ?? Washington Heights, a part of MANHATTAN, has many distinguished and distinguishing features all its own. The Hispanic Society of America includes works by El Greco, Velazquez, and Goya. Oh, and The Cloisters ain’t shabby, either. Of course, I have a vested interest – we live in Inwood, north of Washington Heights. So if you push Washington Heights up into The Bronx, that pushes us into Yonkers, and the commute to Wall Street is just too long.’
☞ Agh! You’re right! And I forgot to mention that Dr. Ruth lives in Washington Heights; that she bestowed a lifetime of good sex on our Revolutionary for having been born there; and that she loves the Cloisters.
