our weekend hideaway in a very small hotel in NYC in the 1980s

 

 

 

 

little NYC hotel on 23rd street (1980s)

 

our little

leo house hotel

on 23rd street

was operated by the Sisters of St. Agnes

 

an old time hotel

an elevator with

brass  scissor gates

operated by a nun

 

separate hot

and cold faucets

a bath/ shower/bath clad

in white subway tile

 

a crucifix over our bed

spied on our lovemaking

blessing our union

 

morning came

windows opened

magic sounds of the city

people chattering in the street

sirens, buses

horns honking

 

I slipped out to the street

for an early cup of coffee

to wake us up

 

the sisters prepared

a fabulous breakfast

 

bacon and eggs

fresh squeezed orange juice

pancakes, yogurt, homemade toast

and piping hot coffee

 

sadly the weekend had to end

 

an incredible few days

celebrated  

by lovers of art

new york city

and each other
