July 13, 2011 Weather: Partly Cloudy, High of 87 Degrees.

Notices:
Lincoln Center has released its official iPhone app. It makes it easier to see what’s on the schedule, buy tickets and, most importantly, find the restrooms.

Did anyone get nice pictures of Manhattanhenge (where the setting sun aligns perfectly with the Manhattan street grid) last night from the Upper West Side? If so, send them to us. My shot (above) was just okay, I thought. If you missed it, don’t worry — Manhattanhenge happens again tonight!

News:
Another Upper West Side cat fell from an astonishing height and survived (remember Copper the cat?). This time, a 16-year-old black cat named Gloucester slipped out the window of his owner’s Lincoln Towers apartment, and dropped 20 stories to the earth. His cat sitter rushed him to a pet emergency room, and he’s recovering well. Ho-hum. (NY Post)

Advocates for cross-Central Park bike paths (at 97th and 102nd Streets) wore signs reading “I Bike Polite” at a Community Board 7 meeting last night, trying to convince our Upper East Side neighbors that we will respect their wishes to live in a calm, slow, and sterile environment. (DNAinfo)
