Tetyana Kryva (seated) is my cousin and a journalist in Ukraine who writes articles on movies and television for her newspaper
She’s touring the US on a journalism grant. She visited Miami, Dallas, Washington DC and New York.
Here she is (seated) with me in a cafe in Greenwich Village in Manhattan where we had lunch.
Here Tanya (that’s the nickname she goes by) is standing infront of the gateway for the Staten Island Ferry. The ferry passes the Statue of Liberty and Tanya was able to get a few good photographs.
We also took a drive through Central Park and Chinatown.
That evening a car bomb was discovered in Times Square, but Tanya was already safely back in her hotel by that time and I was out of Manhattan and already home in Brooklyn. Unfortunately modern life in NYC isn’t only hectic, it can be dangerous. But Tanya and I are blessed, we have angels looking out for us.
