It was a cold, drizzly Sunday morning in 1973, and I was at the Jon Vie bakery on Sixth Avenue in the West Village. The chocolate cheesecake was a specialty of theirs.
There were two customers there besides me: a man ordering at the counter and a woman standing next to me who was all bundled up.
“Here you go,” the counterman said, handing a cake box to the man who was waiting. “Our last chocolate cheesecake.”
The woman and I turned to each other in dismay.
“Not the last chocolate cheesecake!” we said at the same time.
“I hear their apple strudels are pretty good,” the woman added.
That’s when I realized it was Angela Lansbury.

A friend’s husband found a young cat wandering in the Catskills. When they posted her picture on Facebook, something about her spoke to me. Although I’d had cats all my life, I hadn’t had one in more than eight months.
“How will she get from the Catskills to Manhattan?” I asked.
“I’ll drive her,” my friend’s husband said.
The sweet little calico arrived three days later. The day after she showed up, I took her to my neighborhood vet for a checkup.
He whisked her off for shots and blood tests and to treat her for roundworms, and then he brought her back to the examining room.
“You just got very lucky,” he said.
“I know!” I exclaimed. “She’s such a great cat.”
“I was talking to the cat,” the vet said.

I was walking along 60th Street with my 4-year-old son. We were going from Central Park to our apartment on Columbus Avenue.
An older woman with a white cane was navigating the busy sidewalk. I explained to my son that she was blind and that we should offer to help her.
We introduced ourselves, and she said her name was Shirley. She accepted our help gratefully. She said she was going to Roosevelt Hospital, not far out of our way.
As we walked, Shirley told us about herself. She mentioned that she had taken the A train down from 165th Street for her doctor’s appointment, something she typically did on her own.
We got to the hospital and parted ways.
Later that week, I brought my 8-year-old daughter to a play date in Washington Heights. It was going to be our first time in the neighborhood. As we rode uptown on the subway, I told my daughter about meeting the blind woman earlier in the week.
We left the subway at 168th Street and started toward our destination. Within two blocks, I spotted Shirley.
“Shirley?” I called out.
“Joel,” she said. “Is that you?”

Hey, Holden, I hear that you’re worried, concerned —Where are the ducks since the weather has turned?You’ve asked several cabbies, they simply don’t know,Where are the ducks and where do they go?
They’re lonely and cold and prob’bly depressed,It’s tough in this town when you haven’t a nest.When the trees are all bare and the temper’ture’s brutal.And the mood is despair and the journey is futile.
But kiddo, take heart, because this is the crux:If you listen for quacking, you’ll see that the ducksAre here in the park and they haven’t flown far —They splash and relax in the grand reservoir.
The ducklings, the drakes, the mallards, the hens,All the ducks in a row, our fine feathered friends.Dining on sushi, a marvelous feast,Central Park’s their address: West, Middle and East.
So, hang in there, Holden, everything’s ducky,Both you and the birds are lovely and lucky.No need to wonder just where the ducks go,Look no further than here, and thank Jackie O.

I was on the subway platform at Times Square at rush hour. I was trying to slip through a tight corridor between a staircase and the tracks when a man in front of me stopped and stooped over.
“What’s he doing?” I wondered, frustrated at having to pause.
I saw that he was reaching for a glove that couldn’t have been his: It was on the ground in front of him as he bent over.
I looked around, trying to figure out whom the glove belonged to and what the man was going do with it. I was intrigued, but mostly out of self-interest. If he started asking around about whose glove it was, I wouldn’t get as far down the platform as I wanted before my train arrived.
A man who looked like a construction worker started walking our way. The first man tossed the glove in his direction, like you would with a pal. The construction worker caught it, smiled, winked, turned around and walked away.
