MY 30 YEAR ARTIST BLOCK WASN’T ALL BORING: DINNER WITH “WILDMAN ” STEVE BRILL CATERING BY CENTRAL PARK 


For the life of me I can’t remember how I met Steve Brill or why he invited me to dinner.   Meetings  like this happened a lot during my twenties. But there I was with “WILDMAN” Steve in his kitchen watching him create a delicious dinner from his foraging in Central Park. The New York Times had published an article on his foraging tours in the park.  He was an icon of the Mother Earth movement.  He was arrested in 1986 by NY Parks Commissioner Henry Stern for destroying parks.  Charges were dropped and Stern hired him as a naturalist in the city park system from 1986-1990.  He’s going strong in his own venture tours on foraging. 

THANKS FOR THE GREAT MEAL. I WILL SIGN UP FOR A TOUR.
