Isidore Block Dinner at The Woodstock

This afternoon The Woodstock Senior Center hosts its annual 'Izzy Block Dinner' in memory of poet and performer and long time Woodstock resident Isidore Block --  The Poet-O of Central Park.

He wandered everywhere in the green rectangle from the zoo to the Bethesda Fountain to Strawberry Fields, where he’d feed his favorite squirrels-he named them George and Gracie-and ask passersby to ring his brass bell (with a unicorn-shaped handle), which he said would bring luck. He told people that when he was a young man begging, a boy suggested that he give something to people in order to receive. What he gave was wishes. via The Observer
