During these visits, a typical day might involve joining Dennis in the early morning to walk Gabrielle to school (kindergarten). We would walk and/or ride bus or subway until school was over, seeking out bookstores and museums and galleries and libraries. And grabbing a quick deli lunch. Then it was a return to the apartment, where Dennis would probably write for the next many hours and I would hit the streets again solo for more exploration and photography. During the week, Gabrielle’s mom would be at work doing lawyer things, but all of us would go exploring on the weekend, often in Central Park and wherever playgrounds could be found.
