David Belsky has just moved from Chapel Hill back to New York. He writes, “Luckily, New York has been relatively empty for Memorial Day weekend, but Central Park was mobbed — roller disco; a developing fight which my ex-roommate wanted to witness but I didn’t; a little girl, with a gentle face, who danced to African music; a magician who made cards shrink: all within an hour, among much more. It’s hard not to live in the moment here.” David was an editorial assistant at THE SUN and says he remains one in spirit.
