From left to right: One57, the Nippon Club Tower, and the Calvary Baptist Church at 157, 145, and 123, West 57th Street NY, respectively. The first Super Tall on Billionaires Row, completed 2014 at 75 stories; a 21-story built in 1991 by a private Japanese men’s club organized in 1905 to foster cultural exchange; and The Calvary Baptist Church, dedicated 1931 at 16 stories, now empty pending renovation.

A fable of 3 cultures:

Mammon, Buddha, and Jesus walk into Greybeard’s Bar & Grill.

Mammon offers keen interest in return for exclusive service, orders a Manhattan, and gulps it down in a New York minute. He gets up to go, calling over his shoulder, “Have another meeting. Been real.”
The proprietor watches wealth slip away, and wonders silently what Buddha will desire.
Buddha—having no preference—has by now occupied every seat at the bar. He smiles, “If it’s all the same to you, practice detachment from a veggie burger. Please make me one with everything.”
Having set those wheels in motion, Greybeard finds Jesus—seated in a booth, ordering through the screen: one Godfather, on a rock; one shot of Everclear, straight up; a carafe of tap water, and a wine glass.
The old gent lifts an eyebrow. “You want ice in that carafe, Son?”
Jesus replies, “No, thanks—it just dilutes the Chianti.”
From the jukebox, The Carpenters sing We’ve Only Just Begun, Close to You, and Reason to Believe, simultaneously.

Happy Sliders Sunday!
