However, the pianist Angela Hewitt has posted:
Concerts at Le Poisson Rouge going ahead tonight–of course! Even though, thanks to the impending hurricane, the NY subway will be closing at 7 pm, trains cancelled, goodness knows what else. The weather is still fine here. Last night the streets down in The Village were full of people in Hallowe’en dress (we had a wonderful private event for the American Friends of the Trasimeno Music Festival in the studio of painter Caio Fonseca).
