April 6, 2020 Weather: Partly cloudy, with a high of 66 degrees.

Notices:
Of course, there are no in-person events anymore so our calendar has shifted to mostly tell people about ongoing events, and a few daily items. Enjoy and stay (mentally) active!

One idea for tonight’s #clapbecauseyoucare from reader Caroline Press. How about singing Lean on Me to honor Bill Withers, the brilliant musician who recently died. Here are the lyrics.

News:
An Upper West Side co-op board refused to allow a resident’s brother, a doctor who had come down from New Hampshire to voluntarily care for New Yorkers suffering from the coronavirus, to use his apartment. Dr. Richard Levitan received a text from his older brother, who was letting him use an apartment on the Upper West Side, The New York Times reported, last Friday. “It read: “Hey Richard — We are so proud of you and your heroism. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but looks like our apartment building doesn’t want you staying in our apt.” The Times observed, “Fear can make ordinary people turn valorous or villainous or just unattractive.”

An Upper West Sider and customer of New York Sports Club filed a lawsuit against the fitness chain for continuing to charge her while its gyms are closed. “They have completely ignored any and all attempts to reach them,” said Mary Namorato, an Upper West Side customer who pays $70 a month for a fitness club she can’t access,” according to the Daily News. “They act as if we’re dead to them.” New York Sports Club has three locations on the UWS: 94th and Broadway, 248 West 80th Street, and 61 West 62nd Street.

Upper West Sider Marc Goodman, a real estate broker with Corcoran, died of Covid-19 complications. “Friends and colleagues remembered Goodman as a good-natured man who had a playful sense of humor,” The Real Deal reported.

Sociologist William Helmreich, who grew up on the UWS, also died of Covid-19. “William Helmreich’s love of urban life began as a kid. He was born in Switzerland in 1945 to parents who were fleeing the Nazis. When the family moved to New York’s Upper West Side, Helmreich and his father’s favorite pastime was a game called last stop, where they’d ride a subway to its endpoint, then hop off and explore that neighborhood. Helmreich’s son Jeff says the adventures continued when he was growing up,” NPR reported.

Peter Gelb, general manager of the Metropolitan Opera expressed his mixed feelings about the streaming of opera and other performing arts, in response to the nearly worldwide lockdown. In an opinion piece in last Wednesday’s New York Times, Gelb explores the interaction between musicians — all artists — and their audiences. “It’s heartening to see how popular the performing arts remain amid a crisis. And yet even as we celebrate this proliferation of internet-based performances, it’s also worth stating that this can at best be only a temporary fix…artists and audiences need each other. Audiences long for great performers; playing in front of them is what causes an artist’s adrenaline to rush. This is the alchemy of the performing arts, the metaphysical energy that flows to and fro across the footlights. Or as LeBron James put it recently, ‘I ain’t playing if you don’t have the fans in the crowd.’”

John Mulaney and Nick Kroll made a splash on Broadway in 2016, when they brought their alter egos George St. Geegland and Gil Faizon, two Upper West Siders, to the Lyceum Theatre, wrote Playbill. “Now the duo is back with the podcast Oh, Hello: The Podcast, which dropped April 3.” St. Geegland and Faizon are fondly known as “two Upper West Side geezers.” Here’s how they begin: “Oh, hello. It’s George and Gil, your favorite guys in the world and also New York, which is an awesome city, but not as good as it used to be, because of Mayor DiBlasio and the Knicks, who stink. We are in mandatory self-quarantine right now, but we think what the world needs is a podcast from us, George and Gil: the bad boys of broadcast…We’re gonna win the quarantine. And one last thing: you’re welcome.”

Caregivers — home health aides — are considered essential workers in New York City. 200,000 of them show up for work every day, “despite the spread of the virus,” according New York City Lens, “many without protective gear.” One such worker takes the subway six days a week to her 71-year-old client on the Upper West Side. “The Honduran-born aide…worries about her patient getting infected, particularly during her dialysis treatments. ‘I give her my own gloves to wear to dialysis appointments,’ the aide said. (She would not reveal her named because she is undocumented.) “She is also scared, she says, that her patient’s hygiene is out of her control once she clocks out.” Read the rest of her heroic and harrowing story here.

Finally, sorry, dog owners to report, all dog runs are closed as of Monday, April 6th, until further notice, the Daily News reported. “The (Parks Department) said the pup parks are closing because officials have observed overcrowding at them and the city has received numerous complaints…‘Our parks remain open otherwise,” said Commissioner Mitchell Silver, in a statement announcing the news. ‘and they are great places to get fresh air and exercise for New York City pups, but it is very important to keep them on their leashes according to park rules and to social distance.’”
