QUIET, PLEASE I began reading David Owen’s article about noise pollution and its effects on human and animal health just as my BART train entered the Transbay Tube between downtown San Francisco and West Oakland (“Volumetrics,” May 13th). The usual screeching soon began. Since developing a moderate case of tinnitus, several years ago, I have learned to carry earplugs whenever I might be subject to painfully loud sounds—which is often. One can choose not to attend sporting events, for example, which bombard spectators with piercing songs, chants, and sound effects, but traffic, construction, and a thousand other noise sources affect almost everyone. As Owen points out, an increase in noise is also taking a devastating toll on bird and marine life. I hope we learn to keep quiet before it’s too…

goings on about town: this week

Summer doesn’t officially start until the June 21 solstice, but try telling that to the first three-day weekend of the season. Wave Hill, a twenty-eight-acre garden overlooking the Hudson River in the Bronx, is usually closed on Mondays. It makes an exception for Memorial Day, when it plans an hourlong tour. (A field of April’s fleeting flower glory-of-the-snow is pictured here with daffodils.) Other upcoming events to consider are Frog and Toad Day (June 9) and Pollinators Weekend (June 15-16). NIGHT LIFE Musicians and night-club proprietors lead complicated lives; it’s advisable to check in advance to confirm engagements. Uri Caine The Stone at the New School For the past thirty-plus years, the pianist Uri Caine has been the perennial M.V.P. of the downtown music scene—an astonishingly versatile improviser and composer who can navigate the shape-shifting…

tables for two: szechuan mountain house

Around dinnertime, the line of young, well-heeled diners that predictably slithers out of Szechuan Mountain House is long and unrelenting enough that regulars have mastered a routine: wordlessly retrieve a number from the headset-wearing maître d’, ascertain the estimated wait time (usually between thirty and ninety minutes), and limber up the palate at one of the three bubble-tea places on the block that serve as informal anterooms to the spiciest kitchen on St. Mark’s Place. The thought of Sichuanese cuisine brings to mind many adjectives, but “classy” is perhaps not the first. And fair enough; what mental image of Sichuanese food is more often conjured up than mountainous heaps of blood-red peppers, glorious waves of capsaicin-induced head sweats, and a conspicuous indifference to décor? Without denying its patrons either of the…

comment: no mercy

Early last week, when a sixteen-year-old boy from Guatemala became the third migrant child in six months to die in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the sixth child to die after being detained by the agency, it was an acute reminder that the humanitarian challenge at the border shows no signs of abating. Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez died at a border station in Weslaco, Texas, after being given a diagnosis of influenza. It’s not clear that medical negligence played a role in his death—a nurse-practitioner examined him and prescribed Tamiflu, though he was not taken to a hospital—but it is clear that he died in a system where the quality of mercy is under extreme strain. The border-patrol system is chiefly designed to handle the people who…

brave new world: junior offender

Bill Nye, the climate-change activist and science educator, appeared on “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” recently. “The planet’s on fucking fire!” Nye shouted. “This is an actual crisis!” Kyle Kashuv, a high-school senior who has more than three hundred thousand Twitter followers, claimed to be outraged, but not about the climate-change message. “Dear Bill Nye,” he tweeted. “Cursing like a middle-schooler on XBOX Live doesn’t make me respect you—it makes you look like a joke.” Kashuv would know. Just a few years ago, he was a middle schooler himself. He then attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida. In early 2018, he survived the mass shooting at the school; after that, he became a student activist. Unlike the other well-known activists from Parkland, Kashuv is a fierce right-winger…
