HIGHER POWERS Jia Tolentino makes important observations about the connections between drug use and the experience of faith, but she overlooks crucial distinctions (“Ecstasy,” May 27th). First, she equates faith with individual spiritual growth, but faith, as it is understood in most religious traditions, involves a perceived relationship with a divine being. Second, the experience of faith usually involves some participation in a collective tradition and a community. By suggesting that one’s experience of faith, like the act of taking Ecstasy, should be “discrete and limited,” Tolentino recasts faith simply as a form of self-exploration and self-care.

goings on about town: this week

Instead of drive-in movies, New York, with its foot-traffic culture, offers cinematic sit-ins—outdoor screenings at public parks and spaces around the city. The Detective Russel Timoshenko Soccer Field (pictured above), on Staten Island, will host “The Avengers,” on June 29; Rooftop Films presents such notable independent productions as “Black Mother,” “Beach Rats,” and “Bisbee ’17” at eighteen sites; and Films on the Green screens thirteen French movies, modern and classic, by female directors. THE THEATRE Dying City Second Stage Christopher Shinn directs this revival of his 2008 drama, about a Manhattan-based therapist (a compellingly cagey Mary Elizabeth Winstead) who receives an unexpected and unwelcome visit from the identical twin brother of her late husband, who died a year earlier in Iraq. Alternating scenes flash back to her last night with her husband before his…

tables for two: maison yaki

For nearly a decade, the Brooklyn neighborhood of Prospect Heights was home to a sports bar called, in a bold bit of reverse psychology, Plan B. Into this once nondescript space has sprung the restaurant Maison Yaki, which endeavors, as its name suggests, to marry classic French dishes with Japanese ingredients and techniques. It’s the second outing from the thirty-four-year-old chef Greg Baxtrom, whose beloved farm-to-table début, Olmsted, has earned praise from the James Beard Awards, Gwyneth Paltrow, and this magazine. Baxtrom has billed Maison Yaki—where there are no entrées, and half the items on the menu come grilled on skewers—as a more relaxed alternative to Olmsted, just across the street, with a greater share of its seating reserved for walk-ins. Still, three hopeful diners strolled up ahead of the…

comment: the don and joe show

In the inquiry into who would be the strongest Democratic Presidential nominee in 2020, Donald Trump is what might be called a hostile witness. “Joe Biden is a dummy,” the President said last week, on his way to Iowa, where Biden, who spent more than three decades in the Senate and eight years as Barack Obama’s Vice-President and one of his closest advisers, was campaigning. Trump added, “I call him One Per Cent Joe,” although Biden is now averaging thirty-two per cent in recent polls, putting him in the lead in a crowded primary field. Last week, a Quinnipiac University poll indicated that Biden would defeat the President in a nationwide head-to-head contest by fifty-three per cent to forty—“landslide proportions,” a Quinnipiac representative noted. Polls mean only so much at this…

sunrise, sunset: good fences

In 1977, Lewis Berman, a New York veterinarian to the stars, bought an old potato barn and tractor shed in the Hamptons hamlet of Water Mill. With his wife, Amanda, he renovated the property and turned it into a summer house. Seventeen years later, Paul Manafort moved next door. “We had a fight with him before we even knew him,” Berman said, standing beside the tall hedge that separates his yard from what is now the property of the U.S. Marshals Service. Berman, who is eighty-four, was walking his dog, Smudge, a deaf and arthritic Jack Russell terrier. “Manafort built his house three and a half feet taller than what the zoning allowed, and he got away with it,” he said. “So now we have this monster house in front…
